Upcoming Alumni Events

While our students may leave Los Angeles to embark on their careers, further studies, and the other journeys of life, USC and Hillel never leaves them. Our alumni will always be members of our Jewish Trojan Family and we hope you'll reconnect with us at an USC Jewish Alumni Association event:

Becoming a Soulful Parent: The College Years
