Over the last couple months, we have been strengthening the Trojan Family and expanding our reach through our virtual open houses, where we welcome hundreds of new volunteers and engage with many longtime supporters. We have been inspired by the enthusiasm and creative new ideas from this diverse community of Trojans.
Now that the fall semester has begun, we are excited to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism at USC with our established alumni volunteer leaders at the Alumni Leadership Conference next week. It’s our much-anticipated annual occasion to thank and recognize our volunteer leadership community, provide key university updates and share best practices for achieving our goal as an alumni association: to connect alumni to each other and the university. Of course, the conference—like our fall classes—is virtual this year. But, if anything, this has made it easier for our alumni leaders from all over the world to participate.
Although much has changed over the course of this year, one thing remains the same—many ways to get involved and to make a difference in the lives of others. If you haven’t already done so, please check out our enhanced alumni community, FightOnline, where you can connect with fellow alums who share your passions, find activities that interest you, and much more. And in the coming months we will offer even more ways to stay connected with each other and the Trojan Family, so stay tuned.
