Spring Break: USC takes China

This spring break I was given the opportunity to travel to Beijing and Shanghai with the Global Leadership Program (GLP). Last spring, I was invited to GLP right after I was admitted to USC and I knew that a global experience my freshman year was something special. I had never traveled abroad before, so getting […]

Favorite Aspect of My College Experience

One of my favorite aspects of my college experience is being able to make close relationships with a variety of different people. At the beginning of college, a lot of the conversations that people have are really surface level: What’s your major? Where are you from? Where are you living? What clubs are you involved […]

Reflection of My First Semester at USC

Looking back, I can’t believe that my first semester of college is done. I have officially completed 1/8th of my time here at USC….and it went by in the blink of an eye. Interestingly for me, the friends that I made during Welcome Week have stayed with me for the entire semester (and hopefully well […]

A Day in the life of a USC Trojan

Each day works a little differently here at USC, but I’ve found that creating a schedule for the week and for the day is the best approach. Since today is Thursday, let’s go with what a typical Thursday looks like. Dorm: New-North Residential Hall (Harris Hall). New-North is pretty awesome because it is literally less […]

Typical Weekend in the Life of a USC Freshman

Typically, on the weekends I take a break from all the studying – unless it’s midterm season. Fridays: I end class at 12pm so I get an early start on my weekends. Normally, there is a philanthropy on the row that lasts until around 3pm so I typically grab some lunch with friends and head over […]

Favorite Aspect of College

College. A new world – and it’s already been a month! In between juggling class, pledging a fraternity, joining clubs, interviewing for different opportunities, and studying, I’ve managed to find some free time. Having the freedom to stay on campus or leave for the day is one of my favorite aspects about college. It’s so […]

Why I Chose USC

I chose USC because of the academics, atmosphere, and spirit that exists here. There is no denying that USC is home to some of the elite undergraduate programs across the country. Business. Cinematic Arts. Dentistry. Engineering. Outside of academics, the social vibe and energy that students have is unparalleled. USC has it all. Marshall was […]
