Networking and Mentoring

The Trojan Family is about taking care of each other – Trojans for Trojans.  It is also one of the most powerful networks in the world.  The Heritage Association provides an opportunity for you to connect not only with former teammates and coaches, but also engage more closely with the department and university as a whole.  In addition, we would welcome your role as a mentor to a student-athlete, and help guide them through their college experience and beyond.

To better communicate among the department and our 21 NCAA teams, “Team Captains” will be selected for each sport who will serve as the liaison between our office and former student-athletes. If you are interested in assisting the department in this manner, please contact Scott Wandzilak at swandzilak@usc.edu or 424-832-4711.
