Hey all!  I would love to tell you all about one of my favorite student organizations on campus – Program Board Special Events Committee!  Program Board, or PB for short, is a collection of several different committees that get funded to put on events for USC Students for FREE!  Some of these boards are: Special Events, Concerts, Trojan Pride, Performing Arts, and Speakers.

USC Students pay a minimal programming fee at the beginning of each year, and PB uses these funds to put on awesome events like various concerts throughout the year, a Welcome Back Comedy show, various movie prescreenings, and inviting awesome people to campus, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Elton John, and Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family to name a few examples.

As a committee member, I love volunteering at the events themselves.  I love the people I volunteer with, and there are awesome perks to it as well!  As a volunteer, I get to meet the talent at the end of the event/show and take pictures with them!  It’s quite awesome.

If I’m going to be honest with myself, it’s pretty easy to take for granted all of the awesome opportunities at USC.  Whenever I tell my friends back home about all of the famous people I’ve met, the places I’ve been to and the things I’ve done with student orgs, and the experiences I’ve had, they always can’t believe it.  I absolutely love all of my experiences here at USC and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!!
