WongKaren1smWith the excitement of graduation still in the air, I'd like to welcome our newest members to the APAA. Please stay connected through APAA programs and events in LA, OC and the Bay Area. As recent alumni, you can kick off your post-graduate involvement with our Young Alumni Council to expand your USC network.

As the end of my two-year tenure as President draws near, I’d like to thank the APAA Board and the amazing APAA staff. We had a successful launch of a $2 million campaign for scholarships and programming at our Scholarship and Awards Gala. It was a historic event raising over $550,000 while paying tribute to 5 great Trojans and 64 student scholars. When totaled with other gifts and pledges, it brought us to 65% of our campaign goal! These are exciting times—and there’s never been a better time to get engaged or re-engaged with members of our Trojan Family!
