Our Trojan veterans
USC has continuously maintained close and strong bonds with the armed services, and we encourage veterans to designate their veteran status in Workday. For help, refer to the “Changing veteran status” guide under “Personal information” on the Workday Help site.
Here are some stories about colleagues who have served as radio officers, combat medics and even cooks for the Armed Forces.
