It seems like everyone here at USC is currently working on figuring out where they are all going to live next year. Luckily for me, my roommate and I decided a while ago that we were going to live in the same apartment we’re in currently next year. It certainly makes things easy at the end of the year, since I get to leave all my stuff here! With all this talk about housing swirling around campus, I figured I would tell you all about my experience with housing my freshman year.
My first year at USC I lived in Marks Tower and had an awesome time! You can read my blog about Marks Tower from last year here. After that during my sophomore year I lived in Troy East with three of my friends from my fraternity. Continue reading
My freshman year I had the wonderful opportunity to live on the second floor of Birnkrant (BK), a co-ed honors dorm on campus located in McCarthy Quad. Living in Birnkrant my freshman year was one of my best decisions! I loved all the people I lived with and I am still good friends with many of them.
Freshman year, I would definitely describe my housing situation as the complete dorm experience. My dorm room had both girls and guys, it had communal bathrooms, and every room was a two-person room. Though many people feel a bit nervous or apprehensive about dorm-style living, I can honestly say that I would not have wanted my housing experience to be any other way!
Hey everyone! I cannot believe it is March already and almost spring break. This semester has been flying by! It feels like it wasn’t too long ago that I was living in the dorms on campus. My freshman year I lived in Trojan Hall, located by Exposition and Figueroa. I had a great experience living here and thought I would share a more about it with you.
Howdy everyone! Freshman year seems like just yesterday when I was living in Birnkrant and didn’t have to make my own breakfast! As it’s getting closer to next year, it’s time to start thinking about where we’re all gonna live next year, so I thought I’d take some time to tell you about my Freshman housing to help you in your search!
I have lived both in University-owned housing as well as private housing throughout my college years. In my freshman year, I lived in Marks Hall, sophomore year in Troy East, and now I am currently living on 3oth street, one block from campus. In all instances, I have had a positive and painless experience!
One of my favorite parts of freshman year was living in a dorm. I lived in Birnkrant, which was in the North area of campus, right next to the New/North dorms. Each floor was co-ed, with girls on one side and guys on the other. I absolutely loved it. Sharing close quarters with so many other people brought us all together. Birnkrant’s unofficial tag line is “7 floors of open doors,” because it became a habit for everyone, especially in the beginning, to leave their doors open to welcome visitors. Continue reading
