APA New Student Welcome


Are you a new incoming student (freshman or transfer) to USC?

USC’s a big campus – but APASS is here to help you sort it out.

The APA Student Welcome in August can help you find out great programs and organizations to get involved with. Discover the dynamic and diverse Asian Pacific American (APA) community at USC, meet other students, and make the most of your college experience!

Program Details

The annual APA Student Welcome is a half-day event at USC to introduce the incoming class to what the university has to offer for our APA students.

Kick your USC journey off right by plugging into campus resources and organizations before school even starts! Meet fellow incoming APA students, learn about specific involvement opportunities, and explore over 40 student clubs and community organizations at the Involvement Fair.

Lunch will be provided and the day ends with the Welcome Back BBQ hosted by the Asian Pacific American Student Assembly (APASA).

All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win one of three $100 USC Bookstore gift cards!

APA Student Club/Organization Involvement Fair

All APA student organizations are invited to sign up for the APA Student Welcome Involvement Fair.

The Involvement Fair showcases our student organizations to our first-year APA students.
Tabling starts at 3:30pm and lasts until 5:00pm.
