Unruh Student Groups

Unruh Associates

Unruh Associates is the premier political group at USC for students interested in engaging in politics. We connect Associates with political professionals through intimate on-campus conversations, off-campus summits, and roundtable discussions to foster civic discourse in order to inspire the next generation of our nation’s leaders.

The organization is open to all undergraduate and graduate students of all majors currently pursuing degrees at USC. We’re interested in driven, student leaders who want to make a difference in the political arena. This interest may be demonstrated through academic work, attending and/or organizing political events, prior political volunteerism, political internships, and politically-related activities whether it be political punditry, issue advocacy, or translatable skills.

VoteSC is a student organization with a mission to increase voter turnout and engagement within the USC community. They regularly partner with groups like the USC Political Student Assembly (PSA), the Undergraduate Student Government (USG), and the USC Center for the Political Future.

As a nonpartisan student organization, VoteSC seeks to make voting more accessible to students by removing barriers and increasing the information available on voting, elections, and civic engagement, as well as to promote a campus culture of voter awareness, education, registration, and turnout. Each year they have events to engage students, including National Voter Registration Day in September. Additionally, they work to ensure there is a polling location on campus for each election. Overall, their mission is to increase voter turnout and campus civic engagement.

Register using their TurboVote platform to request your ballot, register to vote, change your mailing address, receive election reminders, and more. Follow VoteSC on Facebook and Instagram.
