The opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympics is approaching this Friday! Whether you love watching individual events or team events, there’s one thing for everybody else.
The London Olympics present an opportunity also to cheer on current and former Trojans! There will be more than 30 athletes taking part in sports such as water polo, volleyball, and track representing the Trojan family. There may also be lots of present USC coaches who is going to be lending their coaching expertise during the games that are olympic.
USC has a tradition that is long of Olympic athletes. From 1904 to 2008, there were almost 400 athletes whom either attended the university before, during, or after their Olympic competition. USC has sent more athletes to your Olympics than other college and our athletes have acquired a total that is grand of medals.
The Olympics are a definite time to cheer on our country’s athletes and also unite together for a platform that is global. I enjoy viewing the beach volleyball matches and I also’m excited to see exactly how far the two former Trojans contending in beach volleyball go! Keep an eye out for all of USC’s many Olympic competitors—they simply might bring house the gold.
The Expo Line is Finally Open!!!
After six years of expectation the expansion of Los Angeles’s light train train system (LA Metro) has finally exposed. The Expo Line is the way that is perfect USC pupils, staff, and faculty getting round the city without getting behind the wheel. The new line has three stops directly across the street from our campus. One stop is on the northeast side of campus plus the other two take the south side of campus.
By using the Expo Line, students can get almost anywhere in the city and take complete benefit of just what Los Angeles provides. Its just a short five-minute trip on the Expo Line to the Los Angeles Metro Station and from there students can connect to another light rail train lines that run through the entire city.
Some members of our office have already traded in their cardinal and parking that is gold for the monthly metro pass to overcome their commutes to work. Our office is slowly taking over most of the seats in the 8:18am train! Our experience has been wonderful and we’re excited to tell pupils and families in regards to the convenience of getting around l . a . when we hit the road in the next few weeks for our autumn recruitment travel.

A lot of the scholastic departments on campus are keeping open houses for pupils to come meet faculty, staff, shmoop pro and other current students within their program. There is A perform Study Job Fair and an Involvement Fair, as we find it’s important for USC students to lead a balanced life outside of the classroom as well as inside the classroom. During the evenings, you can find activities such as a ‘Welcome Back Dance,’ a DJ performance, and— probably one of the most anticipated events— the Fall Carnival and Concert.
As you’re able to imagine, it’s a significant time that is busy campus! It is exciting to see freshmen that are new in and just starting to realize what their college experience might entail. It’s refreshing to see familiar faces returning to campus after studying abroad or working over the summer.
