Basketball is more than just a sport. Ever since my dad took me to the park and taught me to how to play 15 years ago, I have loved everything about it. I love going to games, from the Lakers to USC athletics to my little sister’s games! I love watching basketball on TV and [...]

Greetings World! Adam here, back from months of absolute craziness! Besides a busy end to freshmen year, I was also an Orientation Advisor this past summer and got to help all kinds of incoming students transition to USC! But with freshmen year and the summer behind me, it’s time to begin a new chapter in [...]

Welcome back, everyone! This is my first blog post for the new school year, so I just want to tell you a little bit about my summer. As the title of this post suggests, I spent 78 days here at USC through a generous grant from the Rose Hills Foundation, continuing the research that I [...]
