Living in New/North My Freshman Year

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 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 USC Housing Freshman Year: New/North Dorms

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.

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant!

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 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
