Asian Pacific Trojan News

Happy Holidays!

Fellow Trojans, it’s hard to believe that the holidays are finally here. 2020 has been a year like no other in recent memory. Although the pandemic forced us to make significant changes to the way we live and work this year, the Asian Pacific Alumni Association is committed to staying connected with you, our Asian Pacific alumni, across the nation and around the world. That’s why we’re excited to relaunch our newsletter, featuring the latest Asian Pacific Trojan news, events and alumni stories. 

Of course, this newsletter, like all of our programming and events, was made possible in great part by your dedicated support. We want to thank you—our amazing alumni, volunteers, alumni leaders, parents and generous donors—for all that you do on behalf of APAA and our outstanding scholars. Without your support, we would not have been able to enjoy continued success through this difficult year. We also appreciate your willingness to adjust to virtual platforms to participate in our recent Homecoming tailgate, Life 101 and Welcome ReSCeptions. We’re looking forward to the day when it will be safe for us to reconnect in person!

On behalf of APAA and USC’s Asian Pacific alumni community, we wish you and your families a joyous, safe and healthy holiday season.

Fight On!
