2022 Homecoming Picnic
Thank you to everyone who attended our 2022 Homecoming Picnic!
Take a look at some photos from the picnic that captured memories from a day that was full of fun and excitement.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT OUR PICNIC NEXT YEAR!
The USC Viterbi Tailgate will take place on University Park Campus, in the Epstein Family Engineering Plaza (formerly known as Engineering Quad). A map of the picnic location (and campus) can be found here. You may also refer to the map at the bottom of this page.
Tickets are available for the USC Viterbi Homecoming Tailgate for $50 for adults and $10 for children (12 and under).
For our DEN@Viterbi Students and DEN@Viterbi Alumni, please contact us at (213) 764-4949 for information on pricing.
Each year, we strive to improve the user experience at our tailgates. Many of our guests already purchase season tickets and the selling of game tickets has grown beyond our resources, so we are eliminating this option this year. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, however we feel this will allow you more freedom in choosing your seats to enhance your Homecoming experience. We hope you will still join us for the food, games and fun prior to kickoff.
If you do not have Season Tickets already, you may purchase your game tickets directly through the USC Central Ticket Office.
USC offers a limited number of disabled seat tickets available through the USC Central Ticket Office and they are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact the USC Central Ticket Office at (213) 740-GOSC (4672) for more information.
USC Viterbi's tailgate will feature an all-you-can-eat buffet of traditional tailgating type foods like hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, mac n’ cheese, french fries, onion rings, chili, salads cotton candy, snow cones, apple pies, and much more! The menu is subject to change, depending on time of day.
For those of you who are 21 and over, you may also enjoy our bar which will include wine and beer, as well as soft drinks and lemonades for those who prefer something non-alcoholic.
We will also feature several carnival games available to you and your family to enjoy
and a special guest appearance by our very own Dean Yannis C. Yortsos!
When you arrive on campus for the tailgate, please proceed to the Epstein Family Engineering Plaza, where you can check-in. There are no tickets mailed out prior to the event.
