USC Springfest 2014

Hey guys! I hope you all have had fun-filled weeks! I cannot believe there are only a couple more weeks left of this semester before summer.

Springfest 2014 took place last Saturday, and I had a great time. I thought I would tell you a little more about why Springfest is so great.

April, the Best Month at USC

At colleges across the nation, April marks the beginning of spring. Even as far north as Boston, students pull out the beach towels and Frisbees and hit the quad to soak up some sun as the temperature rises. At USC, the same phenomenon occurs. The thermostat begins to regularly peak past 75 degrees (remember, the 55 degree winters here in southern California are freezing), and productivity slowly declines as beach trips are planned. But everyone knows about the beaches in southern California. What makes the month of April truly special at the University of Southern California? Continue reading

Why I Love Attending USC

It’s so hard to believe that I am already almost halfway done with my time at USC as an undergraduate student. The time really does seem to fly by. Looking back over my past two years at this wonderful university, I realized I honestly could not imagine myself anywhere else.

Unlike some people at USC, I was not born and raised a Trojan. Both of my parents went to small schools in the Dallas, Texas area, and the idea of going out to college in California seemed quite daunting.  When April rolled around, and it was time to make my decision on where I was to spend the next four years! I was debating between USC, Vanderbilt, University of Texas at Austin, and Washington University in St. Louis.
