The Bulls Varsity Club encourages past participants of USF Athletics to be lifelong members of the Bulls family. We strive to strengthen the bond between USF Athletics alumni, the University, and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. The Bulls Varsity Club endeavors to provide its members with opportunities to foster and maintain relationships across several sports and generations. These relationships will help to create a culture whereby those who have competed under the Bulls Banner will remain engaged and feel a sense of ownership in USF Athletics.
A team player is one who works in a coordinated effort with other members of a group, or team, in striving for a common goal. Today there is no business or organization that does not talk about the need and value of teamwork in the workplace. As a member of the USF Athletics family you know what teamwork is all about. From running in a relay to making the winning touchdown catch, it was all done in the faith of teamwork. As a member of the Bulls Varsity Club you can help to keep your teams of the past together while ensuring the teams of tomorrow a place to call home.
Since starting in 1956 as a small school independent to being a member of the BIG EAST Conference, it has been an amazing ride. As of today, thousands of student-athletes have represented the Bulls on the fields and courts across America helping to advance a proud tradition. When we reflect on the time spent with our USF Athletic family, we realize that the bonds of camaraderie created through sport are strong. These traditional bonds are important to keep developing. The Varsity Club helps to foster camaraderie by hosting sponsored team reunions and social functions. Let us build a tradition that helps us to celebrate our past.
As a former Bull athlete, you generated a sense of pride and enthusiasm among the Alumni, the University as a whole, and the community. Successful athletics programs bolster this sense of pride in the University body and community. As a part of the team, you can directly influence USF's athletic programs through a 100 percent tax deductible gift to the sport of your choice. By giving, you will be making a direct and positive impact on student-athletes who represent the University of South Florida with pride.
