Spotlight

This is a series of webinar conversations throughout the summer designed for our Trojan supporters!  The topics cover how you can be a support for your student in course registration, working with faculty, finances, student health, campus safety, and campus life.  We will end the summer series with a session concentrating on transfer students. Each Spotlight will have valuable resources for you to reference throughout your student’s first year and beyond.  No reservations are required. The Zoom links will be sent to all guests added within the student’s orientation reservation on the Monday before the session. Recordings of live sessions will be available at the end of each week. Select the Spotlight session below to view.

Although Spotlight is designed for parents and guests, students are more than welcome to attend. Save the date for the following sessions below. All Spotlights will be held on a Tuesday at 2:00PM (PT)!

Note:  Spring 2022 admits, please check back at a later date for events.

Moderator: Lisa Tomlinson Starr, Director of Orientation Programs

Lisa Tomlinson Starr has served as the Director of Orientation Programs since January 2014. She has a long tradition with USC being a 2nd generation Trojan herself. She earned a BFA in Theatre in 1983 and an Executive Masters in Leadership from the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, in 2018. She has had a less than a traditional trajectory to her current position working inside and outside higher education throughout her multiple careers. Her higher education positions included the USC Office of Admission and as an academic counselor at Santa Monica College, where she was able to develop her passion for new student programming. As an undergraduate, Lisa worked as an Orientation Advisor so stepping back into the world of orientation was a natural fit.

Lisa also has a vested interest in sharing the importance of your role in supporting your student because her oldest daughter just graduated from USC in May and this year she has twins entering USC for Fall 2021. Being the support team for your student, rather than the front line, is a big switch for some and a minor adjustment for others so she hopes that these Spotlight conversations will supply helpful nuggets of information as you navigate what your role will be for your student at USC.

Fun Fact: one of Lisa’s absolute favorite things to do is watching and listening to the Trojan Marching Band perform. She hopes you will join the Virtual Spirit Rally with the marching band this summer to gear up for the many fun and amazing opportunities in store for you and your student as a member of the Trojan Family.
