Fall Fest 2009

USF launched the inaugural Fall Fest Nov. 5-8, bringing together Dons past, present, and future for several days packed with events, activities, and programs.

The weekend kicked off with a Nov. 5 dinner to award the University of San Francisco California Prize for Public Service and the Common Good, which honored renowned chef and food activist Alice Waters. More than 250 people attended the event.

The remainder of the weekend included the Campus Activity Board’s annual Homecoming concert, featuring N*E*R*D and opening act B*O*B. The evening also featured a reception for family weekend and a cocktail reception for School of Nursing alumni from the ’60s and their guests.

On Nov. 7, School of Nursing alumni from the ’60s attended Mass at St. Ignatius Church and then socialized at a brunch on campus. Meanwhile, student groups set up the annual carnival and fun zone, the volleyball team played a match in War Memorial Gymnasium, and alumni from the College Players came back for a mini-reunion. After “mini-versity” sessions held by various professors, activities included reunions for the classes of 1969 and 1974.

The weekend drew to a close Nov. 8 with the Tom Caruso 5K run/walk in Golden Gate Park, drawing nearly 200 people, as well as a brunch to wrap up family weekend on campus.

Don’t miss Fall Fest 2010! Oct. 22-24.
