We are Democratic...

Why do the USC elections Matter anyway?

The USC is a democratic institution — we are an organization that is built for students, by students. That means that your voice is essential to shaping everything we do, whether it is student supports, programming, advocacy, or elections!

You have an opportunity to change our campus community by voting on February 1st & 2nd — your voice matters!
