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!
Hey everyone! We are another week closer to spring break. Even though I have been swamped with midterms and papers in the last couple of weeks, I was able to take a break and go to Pi Beta Phi’s invite called Beaux and Arrow. It is Valentine’s Day themed and so fun! I wanted to tell you a little bit about how it went this last weekend.
It’s kinda embarrassing that I’m a junior and, until a week ago, never been to Bottega Louie. I have heard way too much about it, from the macaroons to the delicious food, to the wonderful venue… and it was time to actually check it out myself. And after being away from LA for awhile, I find the need to explore more of downtown which is so accessible to us! Having a free shuttle that leaves every thirty minutes is one of the most useful things for a car-less student, and I intend to take full advantage of it while I’m here.

This semester I have a little more free time than I’ve had in the past so I’ve decided to use that time and explore Los Angeles and go to more events at USC. This is the last time my friends and I will be living in the same city for a while, so we’re trying to make the most of second semester senior year. This week I took a trip to the Ice Cream Lab in Beverly Hills, which has the best ice cream I’ve ever had.
Spring semester has already kicked off to an exciting start! After a winter break packed with traveling, trying new foods and meeting old friends and family, I can’t wait to see what the next couple of months have in store.
