SOULJOURN – Exploring L.A.’s Religious Diversity

SOULJOURNS are a way for all USC students to discover and explore the remarkable spiritual treasures of Los Angeles, which has been documented as the city with the most religious diversity on Earth. Within just a few miles of our campus are places of worship representing all the great religions of the world, as well as spiritual centers unique to our area. Each semester, we’ll visit different temples, churches, or mosques. All students are welcome to come along any or all of these visits. To get a current schedule and to reserve places on these trips, email .
