USC Marshall Tailgates

USC Marshall’s Challenge for Charity tailgates represent a large scale opportunity to engage Marshall students and alumni while supporting the noble goals of our core charities. All tailgate proceeds support Special Olympics, Junior Achievement, and Team Prime Time.

"I have had great interactions with Deloitte and Cisco at C4C tailgates, especially because it's more of an informal setting and the alumni are more open to sharing their experiences in the companies.”
