Today, I am a proud Trojan. A year ago, however, I was a prospective student, checking out USC through its Explore USC program. I still remember those two days quite well. Loving the campus, having every possible question answered, meeting awesome people — the school spirit and extensive sense of involvement of USC were crystal [...]

Right before Thanksgiving break, I had the opportunity to participate in Discover USC with my fellow USC Dornsife Ambassador family! It was one experience that I will never forget! After weeks of preparation, learning from veteran ambassadors, and completing Ambassador Training, I was ready for my first official USC event as a Dornsife Ambassador. While [...]

So, as of late, the main conversation on campus has been focused around Spring Break plans. While most students choose tropical locales or cabin weeks in Big Bear, I will be traveling to the ever welcoming and exotic….. Siberia. Yup, that barren land famous for Russian prison camps and nothingness is where I will be [...]

It goes without saying that the city of Los Angeles is one of USC’s greatest assets. Few other universities provide students with such unique cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities only by virtue of its location. Throughout my freshman year, I began pursuing my ambitious, perhaps crazy goal to explore and know all of L.A. While [...]

My family lives abroad in Beijing, China, so going home to see them for a five-day Thanksgiving break is a little difficult.

And I have spent memorable times at some of the city’s major attractions: screaming for the Lakers at Staples Center, gazing through an amateur astronomer’s telescope at the Griffith Observatory, cruising through important exhibits at the Los Angeles County [...]

Ah, Thanksgiving. The short period of rest before finals descend upon us. And for those of us from out-of-state like myself (woo, Wisconsin!), that brings up a huge question every year: What do I do for Thanksgiving? Now, I would love to fly home, but considering we only have a week of classes after Thanksgiving, [...]

Growing up in Los Angeles, I’ve always gotten heat from my East Coast friends around this time. Los Angeles seasons are a little less intense than other places in the country. Our leaves change color and fall from the trees, and the temperature dips, but in a milder way than, say, Vermont. I love a [...]

One of my favorite USC traditions is the Weekender. Once a year, Trojan fans young and old migrate to NorCal to watch a football game versus either UC Berkeley or Stanford. This year was Stanford’s turn, and after last year’s nail-biter of a home game, I was pumped. My friend Isabella and I decided to [...]
