The University of San Diego Alumni Association has officially begun their pilgrimage along El Camino de Santiago!

Our Toreros, alongside some of their friends and family members, started this incredible journey yesterday in Porto, Portugal. For the next twelve days, they will walk the beautiful coastal route, embracing both the tradition and the transformative experience of this historic path.

El Camino de Santiago isn't just a religious pilgrimage; it's a journey for peace, health benefits, and self-reflection. As our 'peregrinos' (pilgrims) make their way, they’ll share a welcoming "Buen Camino" with fellow travelers, wishing them a great experience.

We will continue to bring you updates on their progress and share their stories and experiences along the way.

Davon Thomas is graduating from the University of San Diego College of Arts and Sciences with a bachelor's degree in psychology.

Thomas grew up in Maryland and was in foster care until his adoption in 1996. His experiences in the Greater Baltimore area inspired him to pursue a degree in psychology.

In 2011, Thomas enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served as a drill instructor. His time in the Corps eventually led him to USD. Thomas was selected for the Marine Corps Enlisted Commissioning Education Program (MECEP), which allows qualified Marines to attend a four-year college full-time while maintaining active-duty status.

Thomas credits his wife, a drill instructor at MCRD San Diego, as his greatest support throughout his academic journey. Last semester, Thomas became a father to his son Desmond. He hopes his journey will set an example for his son.

“I want him to know it wasn’t a walk in the park; it wasn’t something that was handed to me. It was something that I had to earn. But, I also want him to know that his father wants him to look up to him."

Gedeon Baende is graduating from the USD Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering with a dual Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree in Integrated Engineering.

Originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, his parents made the tough decision to send him and his siblings to the United States for a better future. Arriving with knowledge of several languages—but not English—Gedeon faced the challenge of learning a new language while excelling in school.

With the support of his community, Gedeon quickly learned English and excelled academically. At USD, he immersed himself in various activities, including starting his own club, contributing to STEM camps and managing a rigorous computer science curriculum.

Gedeon is now embarking on a promising career as a software developer at Goldman Sachs and is featured in an Amazon Web Services docuseries on AI scholarship recipients.
