Just for fun

Just another day at USC

Employee Engagement and Communications occasionally conducts contests, raffles, drawings or other activities for staff and faculty. These opportunities are announced on the Gateway and via the Gateway Connect email, and details are published on this page.

Halloween costume contest winner

Congratulations to Jessica Holguin of the Cashier’s Office, who rode the Addams Family trend to victory with her interpretation of Cousin Itt. Jessica won a hefty $50 gift card, courtesy of the Bookstore, after taking home the most votes on Facebook.

Submit your best Top Notch Trojan and then take him/her to coffee!

Thanks to USC Hospitality for providing gift certificates for free coffee or snacks, so we can honor the most inspiring submission in Top Notch Trojans – USC’s shout out program. To enter, nominate your own Top Notch Trojan – each week we pick a Top Notch Trojan of the week – and then the best submission of the month wins the prize (prize goes to the person who writes the nomination!)

Congrats to Christine D’Arcy, who showered fellow Trojans with shout-outs and was named our “master submitter” in September!

For October’s contest: we’re looking for shout-outs to colleagues for a specific job or project well done to win that gift certificate. (Of course, all shout-outs are always welcome!)

Weekly Facebook polls

Okay no prizes here, but we do give you a weekly chance to vote – is it coffee, or tea? Mac, or PC? Chris Hemsworth, or Chris Pine? (!) Just a few of the many choices you’ll get to share if you follow us on Facebook!
