Trojan Family Weekend happens once during first semester every year. It starts on a Thursday and ends the following Sunday, and the middle is jam packed with fun events for you and your family. For the past two years, my family has came to USC on Saturday for game day and stayed until Sunday. Don’t be fooled, those two days are enough time for me to show them around LA and USC.
This year, USC was playing the University of Colorado at 7pm on a Saturday. Before the game began, my parents and I went to grab a bite at CAVA in the USC Village. After eating, we met up with some of my friends and their families and we took all of our parents to a tailgate! My parents loved meeting some of my friends and experiencing the feel of a college game day.
At the Coliseum, I bought my parents two guest tickets to sit in the USC student section. I definitely recommend bringing your parents to the game to watch some Trojan Football!
On Sunday, my family attended a Presents ceremony at my sorority. It’s a formal event to officially make me a member of my chapter and show my parents what greek life is all about. Something I took away from another Trojan Family Weekend is how much it means to involve your parents in things that seem ordinary to you, but are really exciting to show them. It is always a fun weekend, and I can’t wait to do it all over again next year!
There is an endless amount of things to take your family to do in LA, here’s some of my parent’s favorites:
-The Last Bookstore
-Grand Central Market
