Ask people what they like about living in LA and you’ll get a million different answers, but if you check out my student page, you’ll see that my answer is: “I love knowing that I can never have an excuse to be bored here!”

Well, last Tuesday I certainly was not bored! I went to see the Book of Mormon with my floor! Even better, we got a huge discount courtesy of the University Residential Student Community, so it made the show a lot more affordable.

Hilarious but not inoffensive. What else would you expect from the creators of South Park? I would definitely recommend it!

To get there we used the convenient new light rail line that runs right by campus. We took the train all the way to Hollywood for $3 (faster and cheaper than driving), to see the show at the historic Pantages theatre.

I think LA did a really great job making the light rail stations look nice, modern, and inviting

I couldn’t take pictures inside, but the show was great! I really enjoyed it, and it was my first broadway musical experience (yay!). Sure I’ve had the soundtrack stuck in my head for a week, but it was totally worth it!

The Pantages is super fancy inside, which definitely improved the experience! This was my first time inside

The best part is that I constantly have opportunities like this, whether its through Visions and Voices, the Cinema School film screenings (they show hit movies a few weeks early – I saw Wreck It Ralph through them with Radhika!), residential community events, or student discounts from the ticket office.



I'm I'm a junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering (Electrical) at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, with a minor in Video Game Design & Management. ----- I am from Hartland, WI, which is a nice little town that is a lot different from Los Angeles! ----- Follow me on Twitter: @IAmWolfman ----- I am the chair of mentoring programs for the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering (, and I am the president of Colleges Against Cancer (, which is the club that plans USC's Relay For Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. That basically sums up how I spend most of my free time, haha. Other than that, I love to play video games (which counts as productivity now that I have the minor!) and I am specifically fond of Dance Dance Revolution and I always have a standing open dance battle with anyone, anytime. Fun and nerdy, that's my style.
