Discover USC is a system-wide showcase that brings together undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and medical scholars to present research, creative and scholarly projects to the university community and beyond. That means a bigger audience for our presenters and new opportunities to connect with your fellow USC scholars.
