Join the Team!
USC Racing is open to all majors and years. While most of the team are engineers, you don’t have to be an engineer to be involved – in fact, one of our most hard-core members is a dentist! We also have an active business team that manages our portfolio, fundraising, and marketing, which has been a great showcase for the business students on the team.
“But I don’t know anything about cars!” That’s fine, many of us came in as freshman having never touched a car engine before. You’ll learn quickly, and we’ll help teach you how everything works. Some minimum qualifications are enthusiasm, wanting to learn and put in effort, and being willing to get hands-on and a little dirty. Don’t let inexperience get in your way.

To join, come by the shop during shop hours (location and hours below). You’ll have to sign a safety waiver, pay a $20 membership fee, and you’re officially part of the team.
Once you do that, make sure to also register on this website with your @usc.edu email. You’ll be approved and get access to the team wiki and forums. Also make sure to talk to a team lead about getting added to the members-only Facebook group (most of the team chit-chat goes on there).
We are located in the back of Parking Structure A on the USC Campus. From McClintock Ave at the front of the parking structure, go in on the left, walk through the rows of DPS vehicles, and turn the corner at the back.
