Marshall New Student Welcome: Thursday, August 17th, 2pm-4pm, Bridge Lawn
The USC Marshall School of Business invites all newly admitted first-year students to join current students, faculty, and staff to our Cool Down. It’ll be a warm Southern California afternoon, so come grab a cool treat, relax, play a few games, and learn all about what Marshall has to offer. Student organizations will be present to help get you involved, as well as, academic and career advisors to answer any questions. There will be giveaways, good vibes, and resources to help kick-start your first-year. Hope to chill with you there! #FightOn

Meals with Faculty Mentors
First-year freshman and transfer students have the opportunity to engage with faculty mentors from a variety of Marshall Departments in a professional setting outside of the classroom. Participants are expected to come prepared to the meal with questions and dressed in business casual attire. Meals run for a duration of 90 minutes during which conversations range from academic to career goals and advice.
To sign up for a meal, please check your USC email at the beginning of the fall/spring semesters.
