Play Ball! New students get acquainted with the USF community
One hundred twenty-five School of Management admitted students, alumni, faculty and staff met up in left field on June 28 as the San Francisco Giants faced off against the Oakland A’s in a Battle of the Bay that reached a 9th inning fever pitch.
A few things are inevitable during a San Francisco summer—sun-starved residents hitting the beach in their hoodies; thousands of marathoners racing over the Golden Gate Bridge; and the Bay Area’s baseball teams going head-to-head at AT&T Park.
On June 28, USF School of Management invited admitted students to meet the USF community at a pre-game tailgate at The Yard at Mission Rock before heading over to the cheering section in the stands reserved especially for the Dons.

The gathering of admitted students and School of Management alumni to cheer on the Giants is an annual event.
And while more than a few Oakland fans were spotted amidst the orange and black, the admitted students came together in harmony to enjoy the long summer day and get excited for their new graduate program... even as the A’s topped the Giants 13-11.
“This evening of baseball and brews is an event we host every summer for new students to get acquainted with the USF community,” said Maria Bluth of the Office of Graduate Recruiting and Admissions.
Go Dons! Go Giants!
