Old News from the SRA President, Micheal Klineman:
A new term begins, and opportunities abound. When you read this article, the USC football season will have begun and fall will be in full swing. In addition to the change in seasons, there will be a large number of programs and opportunities for SRA retirees to attend and get involved in.
You have probably already received an invitation to the September SRA/RFA program which is a lecture, lunch and self-guided tour of Michelson hall on Friday, Sept. 28. In addition, there will be a holiday luncheon, in place of the annual breakfast, on Monday, Dec. 10, in Town & Gown. This special event will include the recognition and celebration of the Emeriti Center’s 40th anniversary.
The annual retiree luncheon will take place March 15, 2019 in Town & Gown where we will honor and recognize recent staff retirees. All the programs mentioned include meals and are free to dues-paying SRA members. The RFA will hold their Distinguished Lecture Series each month which consists of a presentation by a current USC professor on a topic of interest. There will be a box lunch before the lecture and the event is open to all current and retired faculty and staff as well as current USC students. There are also numerous interesting programs and workshops sponsored by the Emeriti Center on a regular basis. Check the web page (emeriti.usc.edu) each week for information about upcoming events.
The point of what I mentioned above is that there is a plethora of activities for all retirees to take advantage of and on a regular basis. I would encourage everybody to participate in as many as possible as a means to stay connected to USC. It is a way to see former colleagues again from when you worked at USC as well as make new friends. I hope to see all of you this fall.
