Tips and Tricks to Freshmen Year

Frankie Chemical Engineering, Frankie, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hello newbies and freshmeat. I am just messing around; you won’t get the same treatment as some of you did high school, but you will still be very noticeable on campus.

Why did I choose USC?

Lyssa Lyssa, Why USC Leave a Comment

When you finally step onto campus, you will realize that college …
