My Freshman Dorm: Parkside Arts and Humanities Residential College

ashlyn-2014 Housing, Suite 7 Comments

My freshman year I lived in Parkside Arts and Humanities Residential College (PAHRC).  There are three buildings that actually make up the Parkside area: Parkside Apartments (1 or 2 bedroom apartments that include a living room and kitchen), and Parkside Arts and Humanities Residential College (PAHRC) and Parkside International Residential College (PIRC) (both fairly new buildings with suite style living).   Parkside has a giant grassy field right out front where you can …

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant

Samantha Kaplan-2015 Housing Leave a Comment

After making the decision to attend USC, my initial excitement turned to panic as I considered which housing option to choose. I had heard rumors about all of the different buildings, but I couldn’t be sure all of the rumors were true. I heard Birnkrant was changing; it would only house students who received a Presidential or Trustee Scholarship. Initially …

My Freshman Dorm: Pardee Tower

lauren Dorm, Housing 3 Comments

I lived in the Pardee Penthouse!! (aka the 8th floor of Pardee Tower, one of the coolest dorms on campus). I loved Pardee because we got a great view (either North with the Hollywood sign or South with the Coliseum), it was close to everything (McCarthy Quad? Check. Leavey Library? Check. TroGro? Check… And what more do you need?), and …

Wondering what the dorms are like at USC? My freshman year I lived in Marks Tower (DMT) and I loved it. I met most of my best friends at Marks Tower. Marks Tower had a really great balance: it was social when my door was open but when I closed my door I was still able to study in peace. …

Freshman year I lived in a dorm room in Birnkrant, which is right on McCarthy quad. I chose that dorm because I heard that it was social and the roommate that I found on the roommate matching that USC has wanted to live there. Now I believe Birnkrant has become an Honors Dorm but when I lived there it wasn’t. …

I transferred into USC as a Sophomore so I lived in Parkside Apartments my first year here. I lived in a one bedroom apartment I shared with another student. One thing I really loved about Parkside was even though I lived in an apartment, we still had events for everyone on the floor so that we got to know one …
