Founder, Kaleigh Gilchrist, has always enjoyed creating t-shirts for special events. In her inaugural homecoming at USC, struggling with the "real world", just as most recent grads do, Kaleigh brought some humor to the situation and created the very first "I Miss South Central" tee. Wearing the t-shirt around campus and receiving such positive feedback that creating a company became a no brainer. This was the beginning of "I Miss South Central."
From fall 2014 to now, collaborations with other Pac-12 schools and a handful of custom orders, followed by a year hiatus, I Miss South Central is officially back.
I hope to create and connect a community of USC Alumni that all miss South Central. To be a part of the Trojan family is special and something that we hold near and dear to our hearts. My favorite part of this journey is being able to connect with new friends and reconnect with old over the same love and nostalgia for the University of Southern California.
