WongKaren1smI recently joined with over 250 alumni leaders from around the world and partners from around campus at the 13th Annual USC Alumni Leadership Conference. I couldn’t help but beam with pride as I listened to the briefings from senior university officials and heard first-hand about the success of USC’s ambitious $6 billion capital campaign validating USC’s vision and goal of becoming one of the most influential research universities in the world.

USC has undergone an impressive and remarkable transformation in the past three decades since I was an undergrad and law student. There’s never been a better time to re-connect and re-engage with the Trojan family through APAA’s programs and events or to increase your current level of involvement. Exciting things are happening at USC and I hope you will find time to personally see and experience that excitement!
