As February is underway with USC celebrating Black History Month, we are reminded of the rich diversity of our Trojan Family, which continues to grow, evolve and lead in many areas of society. And as we at the USC Alumni Association set our sights on our 100th anniversary this summer—and celebrating our centennial during the 2023-24 academic year—we want to make sure that we are doing our best to keep you and our more than 463,000 members connected to each other and to our university, lifelong and worldwide.
In order to do this effectively, we want to hear what you have to say! Be on the lookout for a brief survey coming your way in the next few weeks—an opportunity to share your thoughts about what matters most to you as a USC alum. What better time than this—as we celebrate our legacy and look forward to the future—to let us know what excites and inspires you to get and stay involved with USC? Your honest survey responses will help us improve how we support you and your fellow Trojans across the nation and around the globe, and your participation is much appreciated.
With springtime on the horizon, we are gearing up for a slew of USC Alumni Association traditions! On February 16th, we’ll welcome our beloved Half Century Trojans back to campus for Going Back to College Day. Then March roars in with the USC Women’s Conference on the 3rd, followed by the USC Alumni Day of SCervice on the 11th. The conference speaker line-up this year is fantastic, and volunteering on SCervice day is incredibly rewarding.
Spring is also when we highlight raising funds for scholarships. Our affinity group galas are just around the corner: the USC Latino Alumni Association (March 11), the USC Black Alumni Association (March 31) and the USC Asian Pacific Alumni Association (April 22). The USC Lambda LGBTQ+ Alumni Association Scholarship Gala will take place April 15, and is also a celebration of their 30th anniversary.
Whether you can participate in the life of the university by taking our survey, volunteering for a community service project or attending an upcoming alumni event, we are grateful for your continued support of USC.
Thanks and Fight On!
