The University of San Diego has designated December 1 as #ToreroTuesday, to celebrate USD and welcome the arrival of our new president, Dr. James T. Harris, III. Everyone is invited to participate in this special day.

Support Torero Athletics

We encourage friends, alumni and parents of USD Athletics to come together to support their favorite programs to provide the best possible experience for our student-athletes. Following the success of last year’s Torero Giving Day, the USD Athletics Department will once again donate community service hours for every $250 raised toward athletics during this year’s #ToreroTuesday. When you give to USD Athletics, we give back to the community!
