Congratulations and welcome to the University of Southern California!

Come celebrate the start of a new school year with a tradition you won’t want to miss. USC’s Welcome Week Experience will be one of your fondest memories and a great way to launch your college career.

Welcome Week starts with Move-In Day and continues through the first week of classes.

We’re delighted you chose USC, and we welcome you to the Trojan Family.
