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.
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.
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!
I hope things are going well. Only two weeks until Spring Break and I’m so excited! Now that spring is here it’s time to start thinking about housing again. Last year I blogged about my freshman housing in Birnkrant which you can read about here. This year I’m going to blog about my sophomore housing in Troy East.
It was my first day of college, move-in day at the University of Southern California. Was I a little nervous? Sure. But as I collected my belongings from my rental car and stared up at the 8-floor dormitory that would be my new home, I also felt excitement, excitement for the new people I would meet and the memories I would make. With a duffel bag in one hand and a cardboard box thrown over my shoulder, I anxiously waited in the check-in line to enter Birnkrant Residence Hall.
I recently signed my lease for housing for next year – my last year living at USC! Ever since freshman year, I have lived off campus in different houses both on Menlo Avenue and 29th Street. Although I was off campus, it was only about a 10 minute bike ride to and from campus. My freshman year I lived on campus in Fluor Tower. It was great living so close to all my classes and meeting so many of my freshman classmates!
Freshman housing is always a concern for students coming to USC. I remember being so overwhelmed by all the choices and getting a roommate and everything, and I ended up being so happy with my housing!
One of everyone’s biggest concerns when coming to college is what to do when you graduate! Four years is a long time to devote to school, and making sure that it is all worthwhile is very important. Luckily, Viterbi has its own career services center which I have been fully utilize in the past few weeks!
