SCampus Student Guidebook
“Willie the Wampusbird, a feathery fellow famous for his funnies, flits from his nest once a month to deposit his art and fine writing upon unsuspecting students. The aforementioned fine writing is in the form of a slick humor magazine, the Wampus.
The ante on each issue is an insignificant 25 cents. The staff says that its laugh provoking and sense stimulating effects makes the Wampus one of the best buys on campus, worth much more than the established price.”

- Centering Yourself
The Tutor Center in general is fantastic. Sometimes, you’ll see flash mobs, and friends will pass by. It’s busy, and it feels like you’re at school. There’s this study lounge on the second floor that I love. There are couches and beautiful paintings that they change every month around the room.
- Following the Rainbow
I got really involved in the LGBT community. I was so surprised by how much of a force it was on campus, how supported it was by the administration, and by the funding we get from Program Board and Undergraduate Student Government. I’ve already thrown four events this semester.
- Being on a Mission
I volunteer at LA Mission. It’s a homeless shelter. I just clean up, help to serve food. I find that we’re so lucky here, and volunteering provides perspective on the challenges in the real world. I didn’t come from a very wealthy family at all. And so the fact that I get to go to a top-tier school and get financial aid makes me think, you’ve been given this, so you need to give back. You get and then you give.
- Letting the Spirit Move You
I’m not necessarily an avid football fan. However, it’s so infectious just being there, seeing your team play and cheering them on. It’s part of that school spirit and love of your institution. It’s infectious. You get Trojan-itis. I’m a Trojan. I go to USC. We have so much school spirit!
