Essential Newsletters for USC Students

August 8, 2019

ATTENTION!! If you are an incoming or current USC student, it is imperative that you sign-up for the following newsletters if you’re interested in anything related to art, entertainment, politics, science, and involvement!

For those of you unfamiliar with USC and Los Angeles, we are lucky to be situated in an area with incredible resources and connections. We regularly host industry and thought leaders on campus to talk about their personal experiences. During my time here, I’ve seen Seth Meyers, John Cho, John Kerry, Sarah Koenig of the podcast Serial, John Legend, Daveed Diggs, Bo Burnham, Alex Honnold, Hasan Minhaj, Patrisse Cullors of Black Lives Matter, and so many more.

If any of these individuals interest you, sign up for the following! Most events are open to any USC student, staff, faculty, and alumni.

Visions and Voices:

Visions and Voices is a university-wide arts and humanities initiative that strives to affirm the human spirit and provide inspiring experiences for all USC students. Events highlight critically acclaimed artists and distinguished speakers, theatrical productions, music and dance performances, workshops, and more.

School of Cinematic Arts Events: E-mail “Subscribe” to

USC’s School of Cinematic Arts regularly hosts film screenings and meetings with famous actors, directors, producers, and titans in the entertainment industry. All screenings are free of charge and open to the public.

A relatively new division for USC, the Center for the Political Future is housed under Dornsife and works to advance civil dialogue and design solution to the most pressing challenges facing our nation and the world.
