Shana Douglass Free Time, Shana Leave a Comment

Ballin on a budget is my college motto. While many college students go the typical Cancun or Cabo route (#basic), the way my bank account is set up… I had to get creative. This year my friends and I, affectionately known as the Junkyard, reserved an AirBNB and took a road trip to Rosarito Mexico. Rosarito is a small touristy …

So I am a few short hours away from #SpringBreak2017 and I have officially decided that this has been the most stress-free semester I’ve ever had. After much trial and error, I think I have figured out how exactly to structure your semester so that you have minimum stress and maximum fun.

I’ll start by rewinding a few …

I never thought I would be so excited to drive into Los Angeles on a Saturday during rush hour, but it was so awesome to be back at USC after a long summer. In high school, you always look forward to the summer and count down the days, never expecting that one day you’ll be so excited for school to …

Hello friends and family, I returned to USC yesterday! I gotta say, the place retained its charm well enough over the summer, even though I thought the heat would bake the beauty straight out. (It did not.) Anyways, right, I moved in yesterday! The day was a wee bit on the insane side, as I woke up at 4:30 AM …

Why the Suite Life is so Sweet

anya-2017 Anya, Housing, Suite Leave a Comment

When I was looking at the options for freshman housing, I didn’t know how to choose. Flipping through the USC housing catalog, you could see all the options of places to live and their amenities, but it nothing about the personality of the building itself.
