Event Recap – Trojan Table 9/2

Last updated 09/15/2022

The USC Emeriti Center and retired USC faculty and staff invited all students to Trojan Table, a free student dinner on September 9, 2022. This was our first time hosting an intergenerational dinner in the new school year. About 300 students from ten USC schools enjoyed a casual meal with lots of warm welcomes and fun conversation. A good time was had by all and we look forward to sponsoring Trojan Table almost every month of this fall semester.

Eager students patiently wait for their plate of food

Trojan Table is a fun and inclusive environment where USC Retired Faculty and Staff showed their support for student wellness, inclusion and caring.

Trojan Table provides students with free homestyle dinners for USC Students from USC Retirees! This round of Trojan Table, students were treated to roasted chicken, vegetarian lasagna, vegetable lasagna, salad, garlic noodles, fruit, and chocolate cake prepared by Chef Tracey in the URC Kitchen!

The USC Emeriti Center is the intergenerational bridge across the university employee lifespan. We partner with USC schools and units for interdisciplinary, intergenerational and multicultural initiatives benefitting the university community and beyond. Through this model, we highlight USC faculty research and teaching while engaging USC students in experiential learning and practice outside the classroom.
