Songfest: A USC Tradition

Lauren-2016 Lauren H., Uncategorized 1 Comment

Going into this past week, I knew it was going to be long. I had a paper, a final, a homework set, and a final project.  However, I decided to start my week off with a little fun before I buckled down to do all my work.

On Monday, I was fortunate enough to participate in the 60th Annual USC Songfest, an event my parents remember from when they were at USC.  USC has a long tradition of giving back to the community, so it makes sense that Songfest benefits Troy Camp, a philanthropy at USC that sends kids in the surrounding communities to camp for a week over the summer.  Each week of camp costs about $60,000, so Troy Camp is always having fundraisers.  This event, performed in Bovard Auditorium, is a competition to see which pairs of organizations on campus can perform the best skit.  This year, I participated on Alpha Delta Pi sorority’s team and we paired up with Beta Theta Pi fraternity.  We spent many hours this semester practicing and were very excited to perform.  The theme of the event was “When We Were Young,” so our skit was about a middle school love story.  We didn’t place, but we all had a lot of fun meeting new people and knowing the proceeds went to the kids.  It ended up being a great event that raised a lot of money for Troy Camp!

  1. I’m looking for the date that that SONGFEST took place in 1969 at the HOLLYWOOD BOWL. That was the first date I had with my future wife. It will be 49 years as of that coming date. I would like to celebrate that first date if I can figure out the day and month we first met. Married for allmost 43 years with for children who became TROJANS, BRUINS and CARDINALS. 10 grandchildren who will hopefully follow in our foot steps. An important date in history for our family.

    Thanks,
