Note for mentors

In previous years, mentors were asked to check in and receive a printed nametag. For Discover USC 2024, mentors will not be required to check in when they arrive at the event. To reduce paper waste at the event, nametags will not be printed for mentors at Discover USC 2024. Mentors are encouraged to bring a nametag issued by USC or Prisma Health to identify themselves. (Mentors are eligible to receive a boxed lunch with their employer-issued nametag.)
