My USC Story

The University of Southern California is more than its two campuses, more than its rich history in growing with the region, and more than its contributions to the myriad intellectual, artistic, and new enterprises that are the hallmark of Los Angeles. USC is more than 400,000 alumni, student scholars, researchers, teachers, physicians, nurses, and professional staff. Every Trojan has her or his reasons that draw them to The Trojan Family—each story unique from one another—and we are proud to share some of these USC stories with you.
