The USC Northern Nevada-Lake Tahoe Chapter boasts more than 700 members, and strives to keep alumni connected through social events and mixers. In addition to providing networking opportunities, these events assist in raising funds for local chapter scholarships, which go directly to students that live in the northern Nevada area who are attending USC.
Each summer, USC alumni chapters around the world host SCend Off receptions to welcome incoming USC students to the Trojan Family. SCend Offs help connect new students, their families and friends to local alumni and alumni groups.
All funds generated from ticket sales and contributions are used for scholarships, and to bring the USC Spirit of Troy, Song Girls and Spirit Leaders to the event. For more information, please contact 775.434.USC1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
