Will I fit in? What high school seniors should know about fitting in at USC…
There’s always that natural anxiety that high school seniors experience when it’s time to leave for college. Coming from the east coast, I didn’t know anyone and was nervous and intimidated about starting at USC. That said, I have had the best two years at Marshall and couldn’t imagine myself at another school.
A significant reason why I chose to attend USC was because of its diverse community and the incredible, countless opportunities it presents to its students. Rest assured, no matter what your interests, you will fit in.
Regarding opportunities, there are so many ways to get involved and find your perfect fit. I would encourage students to involve themselves early on in absolutely everything that captures their attention; it’s a great way to meet people who have similar interests. Below are some different ways students can become involved and find their fit:
- Student organizations
- Athletics – varsity, club, intramural
- Greek life
- Music and arts
In the end, I have found that everyone associated with USC and Marshall feels a strong bond with this university. During my college search, I had asked a student at USC what they felt was the best aspect of the school. They replied: the community. In my two years here, I couldn’t agree more…the Trojan community and network is truly the best.
