HOME SWEET HOMECOMING
Thursday, October 8
For the past sixty years, a diverse student body found a new home at the University of South Florida. In this age of disruption, our students are adapting to a new reality. Educational institutions everywhere are learning what an empty nest feels like.
Join the USF Libraries for homecoming as we show some love for the people and places we call "home." On Thursday, October 8, 2020, from 6-7 PM, we will unveil our new virtual exhibit, Home Sweet Homecoming. Librarians Barbara Lewis and Andrew Huse will discuss the exhibit, the history of USF and homecoming, the University archives, and how you can support our efforts.
Drawing upon images, documents of the USF Archives, and the memories of those who lived it, Home Sweet Homecoming is a tribute to our students past and present, the University we've built together, and a heartfelt reminder that there is no place like our home away from home.
