Alumni try to attract grads to week’s events
Homecoming week isn’t just about college kids. It’s about former college kids, too.
That’s why the USF Alumni Association is trying to attract USF grads to join in on the week’s festivities.
Its marquee event will be the Bull’s Roast, a tailgate preceding the USF vs. Memphis game at Raymond James Stadium Saturday night.
The party starts at 4 and will run until 6:30. The set up will be in a Hillsborough Community College parking lot across the street from the stadium.
Debbie Lum, director for special events, said this is the Alumni Association’s biggest event of the year and expects that it will draw nearly 700 people.
The cost for the event is $15 for students and children under 12, $20 for Alumni Association members and $30 for non-members.
Lum said the group will set up a tent city in the parking lot complete with a kids’ area and an all-you-can-eat barbecue and beer for those of age.
The association is also holding an event Friday from 4 – 6 p.m. Alumni are encouraged to meet at the Alumni Center, located between Alumni Drive and Fowler Avenue, for the Homecoming Parade watch party.
The party comes equipped with a mechanical bull, which Lum said would be kept on the children’s setting.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
