WSJ…An Investment in Our Future

This semester, as one of my electives, I decided to explore a business law class, FBE 428:  Principles of Employment Law, taught by Professor Kerry Fields.  This course has quickly topped my list of favorite classes at Marshall.  Not only does Professor Fields make employment and business law content interesting and practical through engaging lectures […]

Expanding New Horizons with the Global Communications Minor

One of the coolest things about USC is the number of interdisciplinary majors and minors available for students. Plenty of my peers in Marshall have decided to supplement their major with a minor/major related to business; for instance, cinematic arts, communication design, and computer science. Others have decided to be Renaissance scholars and pursue areas […]

My Trojan Family

One of the biggest selling points of USC is the concept of “the Trojan family.” I remember when I was a high school senior visiting the campus during Explore USC, my hosts and several then-current Marshall Student Ambassadors stressed how amazing it was to belong to “the Trojan family.” At the time, it seemed like […]

Senior Advice

When you’re a senior in college, you think you know everything. But this past week, I got some very good advice from a senior in high school looking at USC Marshall. This past week, I had the opportunity to talk with a few students interested in Marshall, and when I asked very casually how this […]

If I could meet anyone dead or alive…

As I have spent much of my time in Marshall trying to develop my skills as a leader, I would like to meet John Wooden and pick his brain on what it takes to be an effective leader. I first became interested in John Wooden and his legacy when I watched a speech of his on […]

What I Do on Weekends

I really enjoy going out to eat on weekends. This past weekend, I went to all you can eat sushi in San Gabriel, which is a 20 minute drive from USC. Also, I visited Malibu for one day, and strolled on the beach with my friends. Also, there are events on campus to attend. For […]

Dorm Decorating 101

The transition to college is an exciting one full of great new people, experiences, and adventures, but these changes can also be a little intimidating at times. I’ve found that simple things such as the way you decorate your dorm can actually make the transition surprisingly smoother. Waking up to a space that makes you […]

The sun is shining…where do you go to enjoy it on campus?

Living in Southern California means that the sun shines year-round and the temperatures never drop below a comfortable 60 degrees. Many students take advantage of USC’s numerous outdoor spots to study, catch up with friends, or simply relax in the nice weather. A classic student favorite (and mine, too) is McCarthy Quad in the middle […]

Pursing Multiple Interests at USC – Double Majoring

If you have ever attended a Marshall information session, the admission staffs will tell you that picking up another major or minor is possible. But you might think, Is this really true? Can I still graduate in 4 years? Well, ask any Marshall students what their major is and more often than not, they will […]

“The Omelette Guy” – My Freshman Dining Experience

“What have you eaten today, Lydia?” I vividly remember my mother asking me this question almost everyday during my Freshman year. I can’t tell you how many times my family lovingly reminded me how important good nutrition is to be a productive, active student. They repeatedly reassured me that I was welcome to buy food […]

Thank You Cards

Let’s talk about pre- and post-interview etiquette for a minute. Attire: Know the difference between business casual and business formal. Cover Letter and Resumé: Address your cover letter with Dear/To [name of recruiter], instead of To whom it may concern. Make sure to look over your resumé for grammatical and spelling errors (trust me, dumb things […]

Discovering a Passion for Travel

I came to USC so excited and ready to explore, but without any real sense of where my true passions are.  Within less than a year, though, the opportunities I found through USC Marshall helped me realize my greatest passion – travel. It all started Freshman year when I participated in the Global Leadership Program […]

New Places to Eat in LA

One of my biggest passions is trying out new restaurants and eating new types of food. So when I came to LA, I thought I had made the right choice because I knew that LA was an ethnic melting pot and there would be a large variety of ethnic cuisines. What I didn’t know was […]

Eating My Way Through LA

Los Angeles is such a diverse city, meaning you can practically find any kind of food you like- and what’s better than some delicious food? I’m going to go into five of my favorite restaurants within walking (or a short drive/campus cruiser away) from USC! 1. Mercado La Paloma: 3655 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90007 […]

My Path to Spoken Word Poetry

If you told me two years ago that I would have the courage to perform my own original spoken word pieces to hundreds of people, I would’ve probably responded with an unamused “Really?” Here’s the truth: I used to be very reserved, never wanting to put myself under a microscope of scrutiny. But I wanted […]

USC: My Soul Mate School

WHY DID I CHOOSE USC? Some people talk about love at first sight, but I would have to say that when I set foot on campus for the very first time, I instantly fell in love with USC. It sounds cheesy, and maybe even a little far-fetched, but picking the right college is a little […]

The best advice I’ve ever gotten

It is hard to pinpoint the best advice I have ever received, but it is not hard for me to recognize who it came from. My senior year of high school I took an elective class called “Sports Psychology” that ended up being the most influential class I took in high school. The class served […]

The Best Advice I’ve Ever Had

As a college student, you get plenty of advice: from parents, from professors, from academic advisors, from peers, and from friends. The tough part, though, is figuring out what advice to actually take. The best advice I’ve ever been given at USC is to follow your passion and do what makes you happy. The funny […]

26.2 Miles – 4 Months To Go!

Okay, so maybe it’s a little to late to become a USC Athlete….but last year I had withdrawals from not playing on a sports team, a constant in my life since elementary school. Then, towards the end of last year, when I heard my friend had finished a marathon with the USC Marathon Team without […]
