Society 53

History
Named in honor of the 53 students who formed USC’s first student body in 1880, Society 53 was launched November 5, 2008, at the Widney Alumni House, where those first students attended classes more than 135 years ago.

Purpose
Society 53 is the governing board of SAS, responsible for programming and events that bring current students and alumni together. Members of Society 53 also serve as USCAA student ambassadors.

Apply
Membership is by application only and is limited to SAS members. The application is available in the spring semester each year and due by late February. Successful applicants will be notified of their acceptance by the end of March.

Student Alumni Society Events

SCend Offs

Each summer, USC alumni clubs around the world host SCend Off receptions to welcome incoming USC students to the Trojan Family. SCend Offs help connect new students, their families and friends to local alumni and alumni groups. On occasion, USC faculty or administration guests attend SCend Offs to greet and welcome the new students and their families. You are welcome to attend a SCend Off in your area or, if you are traveling, wherever you happen to be. Please call (213) 740-2300 for more information on SCend Offs.

Alumni Life Chats

These informal conversations with alumni, held over dinner, are open to SAS members only. They offer a great opportunity for students: to learn what it’s like to work in various fields; to proactively prepare for finding the right job while still in school; and to achieve work-life balance. Various alumni from industries such as healthcare, advertising and entertainment serve as our Alumni Life Chat hosts each month.
