With rivalry week each year comes Conquest, a huge pep rally before the Trojans take on the Bruins. Not only is this a major time for school spirit to shine but also it’s one of the occasions when the USC Concerts Committee organizes a big concert for all students to enjoy.

This semester I joined USC Helenes, a service organization on campus that volunteers for the university and the community.

Today I was working on a group assignment with two fellow classmates for my film editing class. “So, what did you two do last night?” one partner asked. My other partner launched into a description of a fantastic, authentic taco place she visited with her boyfriend. Sounded delicious. “What about you?” she asked me. “Oh, [...]

Being born and raised on the south side of Chicago, I have been around overenthusiastic, proud, fighting Irish fans my entire life.
