This past weekend, I grabbed my sunblock, a change of clothes, and my sea legs, and I went down to the docks at San Pedro, a port city about 30 minutes south of USC. For the next two days, I was going to be a sailor!
It seems like everyone here at USC is currently working on figuring out where they are all going to live next year. Luckily for me, my roommate and I decided a while ago that we were going to live in the same apartment we’re in currently next year. It certainly makes things easy at the end of the year, since I get to leave all my stuff here! With all this talk about housing swirling around campus, I figured I would tell you all about my experience with housing my freshman year.
My first year at USC I lived in Marks Tower and had an awesome time! You can read my blog about Marks Tower from last year here. After that during my sophomore year I lived in Troy East with three of my friends from my fraternity. Continue reading
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 freshman year I lived in Trojan Hall, located by Exposition and Figueroa. I had a great experience living here and thought I would share a more about it with you.
I have lived both in University-owned housing as well as private housing throughout my college years. In my freshman year, I lived in Marks Hall, sophomore year in Troy East, and now I am currently living on 3oth street, one block from campus. In all instances, I have had a positive and painless experience!
This week I wanted to talk to you about my freshman housing experience at the International Residence College (otherwise known as Parkside). The basic setup for the dorm is a suite-style, which means you will be living in a suite that has four different rooms, each with two people. In total, there are about a two hundred people on your floor, but each person will belong to one suite and a room instead of just a room like in other college dorms. Continue reading
