students at an alumni event

The USC Latino Alumni Association offers a wide range of programs and events to support, educate and inspire LAA scholars.

Alumni Life Classes

Led by USC alumni, these classes provide opportunities for students to hear firsthand about careers in a wide range of industries—and learn what it takes to work in various fields and maintain work-life balance.

Annual Scholars Leadership Retreat

This back-to-school welcome event for LAA scholars features distinguished and inspiring keynote speakers and hands-on workshops. The retreat gives LAA scholars an opportunity to meet members of the LAA Board of Directors and Scholarship Committee, connect with their fellow scholars, build camaraderie and learn about the scope of LAA’s programs. See photos from our latest retreat.

Networking Opportunities with Alumni and Industry Leaders

The LAA provides opportunities for students to network with alumni and industry leaders at our signature fundraising events and professional-education programs. We are proud to help students connect with alumni for one-on-one conversations about career paths and potential employment opportunities.

Internship and Employment Resource

We work closely with the USC Career Center and corporate partners, and share information about internship and employment opportunities in our monthly newsletter.

Student Recognition

Commemorating the legacy of USC’s eighth president, the Dr. John R. Hubbard Recognition Award is given to an outstanding undergraduate student graduating in the upcoming academic year. The award is based on academic achievement, leadership and community service.

If you feel that you are deserving of this award, please have an advisor, professor, teaching assistant, dean, director or supervisor nominate you.  Selected candidates will be contacted to participate in an interview process, and the top three finalists will be invited to our annual scholarship gala, where the winner will be announced. We send out a call for nominations to the various schools and academic departments on campus each October.
