Tab 1 Group

 

Founded in 1958, the USC Architectural Guild serves as a support group for the School of Architecture by forming a unique link between students, alumni, and faculty at the School of Architecture and the professional community. 

 

Members of the Guild come from all aspects of the architecture, design, construction, engineering, and real estate development industries.  Because of the generous support of their members, the Guild supports a number of educational events for students that provide them the opportunity to enjoy valuable experiences outside the studio, and to provide them with additional insight into the profession, preparing them for the future.

 

Throughout the year the Guild hosts several networking opportunities for members including the Annual Dinner, the Golf Tournament, Engage! and Explore!, as well as invitations to lectures and select events at the School of Architecture and throughout Southern California.

 

USC Architectural Guild Mission:

  • To advance the School of Architecture by providing the resources and support through fundraising activities.
  • To strengthen connections between alumni, corporations, industries, and other interested individuals in support of the USC School of Architecture.
  • To facilitate engagement among students, alumni, and the School of Architecture.
