Community Signature Events

Community Welcome Week

In order to get our residents engaged in the USC Community, we plan welcome programs such as movie screenings, excursions to explore the LA area, various programs with free food, and more!

Lunar New Year

Each year a festive program is held to celebrate the Chinese New Year and expose residents to the culture and history behind this festival. Community Apartments staff engage residents in interactive activities featuring red envelopes, paper lanterns, board games, and delicious catered food.

Faculty Master Events

These events take place monthly and are held by Faculty Master Dr. Darnell Cole. Once a month, he invites residents of East Area to join him for his traditional events. These events include horse back riding, hikes, super bowl showings, trips to El Capitan theater in Hollywood, and dinners at LA Live.

Faculty Dinners

These events take place on Thursday nights each week and they are held by one of our 3 faculty members: Dr. Darnell Cole, Ashley Uyeshiro Simon, or Victor Jones. These dinners are hosted either in Community or Troy. Along with the dinner, we sometimes have other events combined including paint night, game night, movie screenings, and special speakers.

Mutt Monday

Last Monday of each month, faculty Ashley Uyeshiro Simon holds a program called Mutt Monday where we have therapy pets come interact with residents in the Troy Conference Room. This program is also combined with a community service aspect where we make blankets that are donated to a local animal shelter. Occasionally, there are snacks and dinner provided.
