Wondering what the dorms are like at USC? My freshman year I lived in Marks Tower (DMT) and I loved it. I met most of my best friends at Marks Tower. Marks Tower had a really great balance: it was social when my door was open but when I closed my door I was still able to study in peace. To learn more about Marks Tower, check out my other blog about my housing experience in Marks Tower.
Hope this helps you make your own choice about housing!
I still remember meeting you when I stayed with one of your floor-mates during explore your freshman year! That seems like SO long ago! My sister lives in Marks Tower now!
