About Homecoming

The University of South Florida Homecoming is a week-long celebration of USF pride and Bull spirit. USF Homecoming is the most popular annual celebration of USF students, alumni, and the campus community. The university comes alive during a week of exciting events, including the Kickoff pep rally, Stampede Comedy Show, numerous student competitions, parade, Concert, and the Homecoming Ball, where a Homecoming Court is crowned representing each of USF's three regional institutions.

The festivities culminate with the annual Homecoming Football Game at Raymond James Stadium. Homecoming is one of USF's longest traditions, dating back to 1964, the year after USF's first graduating class.
