In the thriving multicultural environment of LA, Marshall embodies the global melting pot. No matter what you like to do in your spare time, you will never tire of the cultural and leisure activities our beautiful city affords.

Community Engagement

Community Engagement

USC Marshall is a community leader with many student-led programs that give back to the community. One example, Los Angeles Community Impact (LACI), an undergraduate student-led consulting group, working with clients on semester-long projects.

In addition, undergraduate students have joined together through MOVE to organize Marshall Community Service Day, which connects USC Marshall students, faculty and staff with volunteer sites around Los Angeles for public service.

More than 60% of USC students volunteer in the University's community outreach programs, providing educational, social, and health services that strengthen the surrounding neighborhoods and offer rewarding personal experiences.
