Howdy kids, I’m back with a hopefully exciting recap of this semester’s adventures! First off, academics. Pretty much all of my classes this semester had multiple midterms, so unfortunately, midterm “week” seemed more like a midterm season with no definitive end point.

A few weeks ago one of our fellow Dornsife Ambassadors was able to into an advanced free screening of the new film The Fifth Estate. Here are our thoughts on it. Vijeta: Seeing movies before they are released (and fo’ FREE!) has got to be one of the best perks of attending USC. The Fifth Estate was a [...]

LA Moments

Los Angeles is a pretty crazy city that has about a million ups and downs. When you’re sitting on the 10 freeway and it takes you an hour and a half to get home instead of the 20 minutes it should, it can be the most frustrating thing in the world. But sometimes, if you [...]

One of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles is Hollywood. And not because of the beautiful people or the celebrities, but because of its history, its aura, and because it’s a globally known icon that represents the American Dream and so much more.
