Having lived in a small town in Oregon for my entire life, USC seemed intimidating when I first came to visit my sister as a sophomore in high school. After a couple years passed and I returned to SC, I found that my experience changed drastically. I loved the big campus feel, with the community-oriented intimacy I found as I attended classes and organization meetings with my sister. Through my position in admissions I get to help students realize the potential of the university, and the potential to find themselves at USC like I did.
USC is a place full of opportunities. You can build sets in the School of Dramatic Arts, and build rockets with Viterbi students, and build friendships with fellow students in our more than 850 student organizations. Outside of USC, there are a plethora of internships to be found in Los Angeles, and many organizations to join to help serve the community.
