My Freshman Year on BK2

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

My freshman year I had the wonderful opportunity to live on the second floor of Birnkrant (BK), a co-ed honors dorm on campus located in McCarthy Quad.  Living in Birnkrant my freshman year was one of my best decisions! I loved all the people I lived with and I am still good friends with many of them.

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 …

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant!

Archana Archana, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014 Leave a Comment

Hey guys! One of my favorite parts of freshman year was living in a dorm. I lived in Birnkrant, which was in the North area of campus, right next to the New/North dorms. Each floor was co-ed, with girls on one side and guys on the other. I absolutely loved it. Sharing close quarters with so many other people brought …

For the past two years, I have been able to live at my sorority house, which is just a few blocks away from campus on 28th street.  Living in the ADPi house, or the Pi Palace as we call it, has been an incredible experience for me.  Living here is convenient, affordable, and most of all, it’s fun!

It was my first day of college, move-in day at the University of Southern California. Was I a little nervous? Sure.
