Signature Events

As part of Academic Programs, Academic Honors and Fellowships educates the USC community about university awards and external fellowships, and mentors motivated students and recent alumni in their pursuit of these opportunities. The Signature Academic Events allow undergraduate students to:

  • Explore diverse academic disciplines that contribute to their breadth and depth of knowledge;
  • Showcase research, scholarly, and creative endeavors with the university community;
  • Connect academic and professional goals to national, international, and post-graduate educational opportunities.

The seminars are designed to introduce students to a USC professor and become familiar with the academic environment before classes begin. Learn More
