“I can trace back so many of my personal and professional accomplishments to my four years as an undergraduate student at USC, where I learned how to excel academically and how to give back through service to others.”
— David C. Bohnett ’78, USC Trustee, philanthropist, technology entrepreneur
On May 25, 2016, USC announced that USC Trustee David C. Bohnett ’78 has pledged $15 million to endow and name a residential college at USC Village.
The David C. Bohnett Residential College will focus on the principles of social justice and community service, and will form part of a thriving student community that integrates living and learning for up to 320 students as well as faculty-in-residence and student support staff.
The Bohnett College is one of eight residential colleges planned for USC Village. In all, they will add as many as 2,700 student beds to the University Park Campus and increase the number of students in USC-owned housing by nearly 40 percent.
