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.


During our #ConnectTakePart campaign, we’ve got a number of fun activities planned – and all of them could win you prizes! Read on:

May 13-17 – Instagram contest

Our $50 USC Bookstore gift card contest is over, and we’ll announce the winner soon! Many thanks again to USC Bookstore for providing this generous prize!

May 20-June 14 – Dress your Pet in Trojan gear and win!

How about a pair of tickets to USC football? You and your best football buddy can head over to the Coliseum right after work on Friday, September 20 to watch the Trojans take on Utah – if you show us the USC-est puppy, kitty, or any other pet. This prize is courtesy of USC Athletics, who will throw in a Trojan cap as well! But you can’t use that on your pet. Use your own Trojan gear and dress your pet for (football ticket) success! Details HERE!

June 3-21 – Submit your best Top Notch Trojan and then take him/her to coffee!

USC Hospitality is providing (what) to the best, most inspiring submission in Top Notch Trojans – USC’s shout out program. Learn more about this contest June 3!

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!
