Reunion Weekend

Each year, we invite eight undergraduate classes back to campus to reconnect, reunite and rediscover with the university and fellow alumni during Reunion Weekend. This year, we had a blast celebrating special USC milestones with the classes of: 1972, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012!

USC Reunion Weekend took place Friday through Saturday, November 4-5, in conjunction with USC Homecoming. If you attended Reunion Weekend this year, please consider filling out this survey to help us continue to improve future Reunion Weekend events.

The USC Alumni Association is looking for members from the undergraduate classes of 1973, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, 2008, and 2013 to serve on their reunion committee. Joining your reunion committee is a great way to reconnect with classmates and encourage them to come back to campus to celebrate their Trojan family ties.
