Summer Session and Admissions

<p>Does anyone think that attending the summer sessions four week seminars helps at all with admissions? My child learned alot but I am just wondering if it will pay off.
He said the food in the cafeteria was awful. Is it any better during the year?</p>

<p>don't know anything about the summer sessions, but the foods not that bad. depends on where he's eating, there are multiple restaurants/cafeterias on campus</p>

<p>I do know that many/most Us scale back cafe offerings over the summer. Not sure if USC is among them, but would n't be surprised. Freshmen living in university housing are required to buy a meal plan which generally entitles them to eat a set # of meals at the dining commons (Parkside or Everybody's Kitchen). It also contains some "dining dollars" which they can spend at a large # of other eating places on campus which have the full range of food including Wolfgang Puck's, sushi bar, soup, sandwiches, Starbuck's, Columbo, etc. My S complains that the food "isn't great" but doesn't seem to find it all that bad (as I recall, we all complained about cafe food back in my day as well).</p>

<p>the food is a lot better during the school year, than over the summer.</p>

<p>during the summer, there's not as much business, so they have to cut back.</p>

<p>EVK isn't that bad, but many people complain about it...eventually you learn to stay away from certain foods that aren't as tasty, but today I had this amazing alfredo pasta and the best waffle in the world.</p>
