The Office of Campus Activities believes the unique Trojan experience is enhanced by activities and programs outside of the classroom. Our role is to provide a link between students’ classroom experiences to activities beyond the classroom. The Office of Campus Activities sponsors services, programs and events to educate, advocate, entertain and challenge students. Campus Activities provides students the necessary tools and resources for their individual and student organization success as well as supports student advocacy efforts. This office exists to create a student life experience exclusive to USC.

The Office of Campus Activities comprises several offices/departments including:

  • Campus Traditions
    • Homecoming
    • Spirit Bags
    • Student organization awards
  • Center for Student Involvement
    • USC LEAD
    • Peer Leadership Consultants
    • Student Organizations
  • Graduate Student Government
  • Program Board
  • Transfer and Veteran Student Programs
  • Undergraduate Student Government

How to Get Involved

Student organizations are a great way to get involved on campus. Belonging to a group that shares your interests can enrich your college experience. Academic interest groups, honor societies, sports clubs, religious organizations, groups with a focus on political or social issues, service organizations and clubs with primarily social purposes are among the official student organizations at USC. For an up-to-date list of organizations and contact information, visit the student organization Website at or refer to Student Organizations.

Once you decide to join a particular student organization, you can call or email the president, go to their meetings or put a note in one of the organization mailboxes. Involvement fairs are held twice a year to give you the opportunity to meet student organization representatives and learn how to join a group.

In addition to student organizations, USC has a variety of other ways for you to be active. Students can get involved in student governance through the Undergraduate Student Government, Graduate Student Government, University Residential Student Community and building governments. Program Board is a good opportunity for students who like to program events or are interested in bringing educational, social and cultural events to campus. (For more information on student governance opportunities, see Student Governance.) USC also has an active greek community as well as cultural centers that both welcome and educate students about different cultures and ethnicities.
