We strongly encourage you to begin your academic career by attending Orientation. Attending Orientation is the best way to acclimate to life at USC, become familiar with the campus, learn resources and services, and network with other graduate students.
Welcome to USC! One of the reasons we are such a dynamic and diverse community is that, each year, thousands of new students like you bring your talent and experience to our campus. That is likely what attracted you to USC in the first place. Help us continue our tradition of excellence. Make your reservation now.
At USC, we believe Orientation is a process, not just an event. Orientation Programs hosts continued programs and activities for new students throughout the academic year. Continued participation in activities and events is an important step in making the transition to life as a Trojan and is the best way to acclimate yourself to life as a USC student.
