A Day in the Life of a USC Trojan

<p>My name is Marcus Alvarez, and I am a senior in Texas. This whole process of writing college essays, submitting financial aid documents, and juggling AP classes with family responsibilities is definitely something to remember. But time can only tell who will eventually be admitted to the dream schools.</p>

<p>In order to pass the time, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to describe his or her experience at USC? What was your first day like? How are the people? How is the LA area? Is the campus as vibrant and beautiful as everyone says? What do you think about the marching band - and drumline? How is the food? What is there to expect at freshmen orientation? How are the teachers? What consists of a typical workload? What's a day in the life of a USC Trojan?</p>

<p>Hi Marcus, Try posting this in the general USC thread instead of the USC 2016. I don't think this one is getting much activity yet. You have some great questions that I think others would like to know!
PS: We know a freshman that was in the Marching band - he loved it! and yes, the campus is vibrant and beautiful. My son pretty much eliminated all the other CA schools due to the lively activity on campus even on a Friday afternoon.</p>

<p>Haha. Thanks! I am new to this system and I am not quite sure how to do that. I was wondering, too, if nobody else was interested in knowing about USC's vibrant community. But yes, I'll definitely post it on a general thread.</p>

<p>Thanks again for the tip!</p>
