The Sun Dome parking played host to students and alumni alike for the popular annual Homecoming Carnival. Packed with plenty of rides, great food and a family-friendly atmosphere it was a great way for the USF community to come together in this fun two-day event!

The USF community came out Friday night to see the Running of the Bulls Night Parade, which featured more than 50 floats, as well as about a dozen watch parties. The parade began at 6:45 p.m. on Holly Drive near the Marshall Student Center and ended on Bull Run. See a few of the floats that were featured in the parade.

Rapper Big Sean played for a sold out crowd at the Homecoming After Party Concert, which was held inside the Sun Dome for the first time in Homecoming history. Before Sean took the stage, Rocky and USF football player Vincent Jackson encouraged the crowd to come to Raymond James Stadium on Saturday for the Homecoming football game against Syracuse.

At the USF football homecoming game vs. Syracuse fans were encouraged to wear white for a stadium "White Out." The crowd cheered the Bulls on to a 45-24 victory over Syracuse! Back at Corbett Stadium the men's soccer team defeated Cincinnati by a score of 3-0 and women's soccer tied with Memphis 2-2.
