This semester, I am in a class in which I am starting an extended research project under the guidance of a professor. Over the next two semesters, I should complete my deliverable and have […]

Why Accounting is Right for Me

When I arrived at USC, I wasn’t sure what path I wanted to take, but I knew that I wanted to be a business major because, among other things, it was something that would make me look employable after graduation. To be honest at the time, I only a very vague idea of what “business” […]

The Best things to do on Campus

While at USC, you’ll find that you spend less than 24 hours a day in the classroom. That means you will have some time to explore, and there is no better place to start than within your own home. Marshall and Leventhal are situated in the Southeast corner of campus, but there is so much […]

My Favorite Class this Semester

This class is a 2 unit accounting elective that focuses on how to determine how much various assets and liabilities are worth.

Trojans are Ambitious

The five traits of a Trojan are: Faithful, Scholarly, Skillful, Courageous, and Ambitious. (See how many of your friends at USC don’t know those). I’ve always liked the idea of Trojan being ambitious because it can encompass so many different things.
