Once you register, you are a member of the Student Alumni Society until you graduate and become a lifelong member of the USC Alumni Association.
The Student Alumni Society (SAS) offers current students a number of excellent ways to connect with USC alumni. All current USC students are eligible to join SAS. The one-time membership fee covers you until graduation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about paying the membership fee.
Membership benefits include:
- Exclusive Trojan Family networking opportunities
- Invitations to exclusive events such as SCuppers, Networking Nights, & Life Workshops (via emails from email@example.com)
- Priority registration for events
- SAS t-shirt *Please note that t-shirts are only available for pick-up on campus*
- Eligibility to apply to Society 53, home to the USCAA’s student ambassadors.
Each purchased membership includes a $5 donation which supports USC Alumni Association programs and services.
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.
Society 53 is the governing and programming board of SAS, responsible for events that bring current students and alumni together. Members of Society 53 also serve as USCAA student ambassadors.
Membership is by application only and is limited to SAS members. The application is now closed and will reopen in Spring 2024.

The USCAA and its affiliated groups offer a variety of scholarships totaling nearly $4 million each year to new and returning USC students.
Student Alumni Society Events
Trojan SCuppers provide many great opportunities for students, alumni, parents and friends to connect, share stories and celebrate USC’s traditions and its transformation into a world-renowned private research institution. Alumni SCupper hosts provide dinner for 10-12 current USC students in local restaurants, campus locations or other creative spaces.
Fall Networking Night
The Fall Networking Night is a fun and exciting way for students to practice valuable networking skills, in person, with alumni leaders from a variety of industries. These skills and contacts are of great value to those seeking to refine their personal brands and build a list of professional references.
These workshops focus on presenting about topics and trends that interest current students. They offer a great opportunity for students: to learn how to get into working various fields; to proactively prepare for finding the right job while still in school; and to achieve work-life balance.
Spring Virtual Networking Night
New this year, our spring virtual networking night utilized the power of the world-wide-web to offer networking and mock interview sessions for students to connect with alumni. Alumni experts from a variety of industries and backgrounds will provide advice, share tips, and answer your questions for a 15 to 20 minute session. Through this event you will have the opportunity to meet and network with the Trojan network without leaving the comfort of your office, home or commute.
