SCampus Student Guidebook
“Swimming, despite the lack of a pool on the campus, was one of the surprises of last year. The Trojans entered several meets, and at no place were they turned back. Hopes for a plunge on the campus are high, and with the wealth of material on hand such an accommodation would help the Trojans to produce some real champions in this activity.”

- Orienting yourself
Orientation is a place where you’re just thrown into the USC environment as a taste before you come back in the fall. So have fun. Don’t be shy. Soak up as much information as you can about USC, because it’s a lot for two days. Get to meet some early friends, and make friends with your Orientation Adviser, too. I’m still friends with mine. They’re such a great resource.
- Eating like a Trojan
I have the gold meal plan: that’s the unlimited swipes plus $500 dining dollars. I really like that plan, because it lets me go to any one of the great restaurants that USC has. So I can take advantage of the food at Parkside, or eat at Lemonade or any of the awesome places in the Tutor Campus Center.
- Clubbing at USC
There are so many different clubs and organizations. We have a digital forensics organization at USC. That is the coolest thing ever to me: that there’s a group of students who get together literally to discuss computer security and that sort of thing.
- Visiting office hours
All the faculty, they’re willing to get to know you. They take whatever steps they need to make sure you succeed. They’re really friendly, too. So do the practical stuff. Do things like visit during office hours, ask questions about the material, get to know them.
