What is CampU?
CampU is a 3-day, 2-night, off-campus experience for first-year students. During CampU, students will build strong bonds with peers, learn USF traditions, and explore personal strengths. Join NSC for an adventure of a lifetime and discover what it means to be part of the Bull family! New Bulls LOVED CampU 2013 -- click here to see what they had to say about experiencing this USF tradition!
Students can be part of an elite group of first-year students who experience the tradition by registering for CampU beginning May 1, 2014. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Limited space is available, so students should not delay!
In addition, until registration opens, please fill out our Pre Registration Survey here to receive updated information on CampU up until registration opening May 1, 2014.
What will I do at CampU?
CampU is filled with fun, interactive activities to help students connect with other new Bulls. Students will be assigned to a small team that will be led by a current USF student.
A sample of CampU activities can be found here.
