The food side of Parkside!

betty Betty, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014, Why USC, Why USC 2014 Leave a Comment

I can’t believe just a year ago I was packing up to move into my freshman dorm.  I’ve loved being able to live in the Parkside Arts and Humanities dorm my freshman year, not only for the air conditioning, suite style rooms, crazy talented people on the music floor, and all the friends I made, but for, my favorite part, …

sarah bass Sarah, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! 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 …

My Freshman Year on BK2

lauren h. Lauren H., USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

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.

My USC Housing Freshman Year: New/North Dorms

lauren p. Lauren P., USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

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 …

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant!

archana Archana, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

Hey guys! 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 …

Hey Guys, This week I wanted to talk to you about my freshman housing experience at the International Residence College (otherwise known as Parkside). The basic setup for the dorm is a suite-style, which means you will be living in a suite that has four different rooms, each with two people. In total, there are about a two hundred people …

For the past two years, I have been able to live at my sorority house, which is just a few blocks away from campus on 28th street.  Living in the ADPi house, or the Pi Palace as we call it, has been an incredible experience for me.  Living here is convenient, affordable, and most of all, it’s fun! After living …

New/North Dorm Life

erica Uncategorized, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

  I could not have had a better experience living in the dorms freshman year.  I still remember the first week I moved into New/North.  Students would wander the halls anxious to meet one another, music blasting from neighboring rooms, and BBQ’s and games of Frisbee taking place in the courtyard.  I think I met more people during welcome week …

It was my first day of college, move-in day at the University of Southern California. Was I a little nervous? Sure.

USC Housing: My Birnkrant Experience

My freshman year I lived in Birnkrant, a freshmen dorm on the north side of campus. I lived on the 7th floor with forty other scholarship students (half boys half girls) and made some of my best friends through that time. My resident advisor, Christine, was one of the coolest people I have met at USC, and since moving out …
