Membership in the USC Architectural Guild is an annual giving program that brings together students, faculty, alumni, friends and professionals in the design-build industry to support the USC School of Architecture. 

Because of the generous support of our members, the USC Architectural Guild has been able to complement and strengthen the educational experience for students by providing resources and funds for mentorship, career development, an annual career fair, scholarships, student design competitions and traveling fellowships.


Throughout the year, USC Architectural Guild members enjoy unique networking opportunities at Guild events including the Annual Dinner, the Annual Golf Tournament, Engage! & Explore! events, and invitations to lectures and select events at the School of Architecture


We also are looking for Guild members and USC Architecture alumni to volunteer and participate in any of these programs.


Whether you are an individual or a company joining the USC Architectural Guild at one of our many levels, your support and generosity will have a great impact on preparing the next generation of citizen architects and industry leaders.
