USC Marshall Alumni Association - San Diego

Our Mission:

The mission of the Marshall Alumni Association in San Diego is to provide a forum for connecting alumni with each other, to help create alumni affinity with USC Marshall and USC Leventhal, and to enhance the quality, reputation and visibility of our alma mater in the San Diego County business community and beyond. 

Your local chapter Board is focused on delivering programming that will be valuable to San Diego Trojans both personally and professionally.  For the 2015-16 fiscal year, we have a great lineup of events including a quarterly breakfast speaker series, quarterly industry focused happy hours, and monthly networking lunches. 

If you have specific questions or suggestions for activities that will help to benefit the local Trojan community, please contact our chapter president, Ed Ong at

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events or follow us on Social Media – #FightOn!
