Songfest: A USC Tradition

Going into this past week, I knew it was going to be long. I had a paper, a final, a homework set, and a final project.  However, I decided to start my week off with a little fun before I buckled down to do all my work.

On Monday, I was fortunate enough to participate in the 60th Annual USC Songfest, an event my parents remember from when they were at USC.  USC has a long tradition of giving back to the community, so it makes sense that Songfest benefits Troy Camp, a philanthropy at USC that sends kids in the surrounding communities to camp for a week over the summer.  Each week of camp costs about $60,000, so Troy Camp is always having fundraisers.  This event, performed in Bovard Auditorium, is a competition to see which pairs of organizations on campus can perform the best skit.  This year, I participated on Alpha Delta Pi sorority’s team and we paired up with Beta Theta Pi fraternity.  We spent many hours this semester practicing and were very excited to perform.  The theme of the event was “When We Were Young,” so our skit was about a middle school love story.  We didn’t place, but we all had a lot of fun meeting new people and knowing the proceeds went to the kids.  It ended up being a great event that raised a lot of money for Troy Camp!
