09/14/20 USC Architectural Guild Named Volunteer Organization of the Year

 

The USC Architectural Guild has been named Volunteer Organization of the Year by the USC Alumni Association. The annual Volunteer Recognition Awards, hosted by the Alumni Association, honors organizations and alumni who devote themselves to serving the USC community.


The Volunteer Organization of the Year Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the Trojan Family and the advancement of the University. Members of the USC Architectural Guild devote their time to providing one-on-one guidance to students, giving them insight on careers as design thinkers. The Guild provides networking opportunities for School of Architecture students, connecting them with working professionals in the AEC industries (architecture, engineering, construction) in the Los Angeles community. Moreover, the Guild raises funds to support USC Architecture students and academic enrichment programs, such as scholarships and fellowships, mentorship, career development and annual Firm Fair, a design competition, architectural exploration and networking opportunities.


This year, the Guild designated $100,000 to the USC School of Architecture, including the new USC Architectural Guild Scholarship. The Scholarship will recognize four students for their demonstrated achievements, leadership and community service as citizen architects.


"Our volunteer efforts aim to transform the student experience at USC Architecture. To have that recognized at the University level further motivates us to continue mentoring a resilient, civic-minded future, one student at a time,” said Gary Brennen, co-president of Syska Hennesey Group and president of the USC Architectural Guild


Immediate past president Leslie Young ’95 accepted the award on the Guild’s behalf this past Friday, Sept. 11. For more information or to learn how to join the USC Architectural Guild, visit https://arch.usc.edu/architectural-guild.
