Why USC you ask

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Why USC Leave a Comment

USC and a school referred to the the farm (Stanford for all that don’t know) were my two first choices.  That sounds kinda weird, but I couldn’t decide between either one or the other. Stanford was big, but the campus was everything I imagined since 8th grade dreams, and USC was a glorious surprise since I never considered it before …

Markus Markus, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey All, Midterms are slowly beginning to slow down so I can finally tell you about my Spring Break.  I decided to break it up into two parts, half of which I would go car-camping, and the other traveling to Portland, Oregon.   In retrospect this made my break very busy and let me really make the most out of …

Howdy everybody! It’s been a fun and relaxing Spring Break this past week and I just got back from Dallas this past Sunday. It was great to relax and hone my golf skills (or lack-thereof)! As it’s approaching April, I know a lot of y’all are making your final decisions for college, and I remember just how stressful that choice …

Juliana Juliana, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey guys! I hope things are going well. I’m currently sitting in the Los Angeles International Airport, more affectionate known as LAX, waiting for my (delayed) flight home to Portland. On the bright side, it’s only delayed by 25 minutes, and that just gives me 25 more minutes to blog, right? Anyways, back to the reason I’m hanging out at …

My USC Housing Freshman Year: New/North Dorms

Lauren Lauren P., USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

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 …

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 …

With Thanksgiving just around the corner indicating the approach of the holiday season, I’m starting to feel a tinge of homesickness as I won’t be heading back to New Jersey until the middle of December.  Although I love everyday here at USC, from classes to food to of course the weather, it’s occasionally hard to not be able to see …

Hey guys! I just got back from a pretty fantastic weekend trip home to Oregon! I’ve been really missing home recently, so I’d been counting down to this trip for weeks. Leaving my apartment at 4:45 am on Friday morning was rough, especially since I’m not a morning person, but it was definitely worth it. After that the trip was …

Cures for Homesickness

Well, it’s that time of year again. Despite this crazy 80-90 degree weather we’ve been having, the first LA mist of the school year struck yesterday. I call it mist because there’s no way you can consider it rain – just a little bit of moisture in the air early in the morning on the way to my first class …

So what does one do during Florida summers when it torrentially downpours every day? Go to the movies!!!

So because I haven’t been in the sunshine much, I figured I’d show a few pictures of my awesome …
