David JB recommends:
- Going Wide
I was going to go to art school first. Then I realized that if I minor in something other than art, it’ll make me a better artist, because I’ll know more stuff besides art. USC provided a lot more options than any other college out there.
- Fighting On!
I’m a big football fan. My high school mascot was a Spartan, and a Trojan’s kind of similar. USC students are crazy about football and the whole school spirit. The vibe is unlike any other football game. The fans just go buck wild. That’s what I like about it. You should go die-hard for your school.
- Spinning Your Wheels
Don’t just go to classes and come home. Go out and experience school. I’m on the cycling team. We go everywhere. The short rides last about 30 to 40 minutes, longer ones are three to four hours. We’ve gone down to Long Beach, and that’s about 70 miles. And then once in a while, we go down to San Diego. The season is starting again in February, and we’ll be racing against UCLA, UC Berkeley and other teams.
- Making Smooth Transitions
I transferred here. For the first two or three weeks, it was very hard for me to make friends. But then once I realized that people were friendly, it was easier for me to get involved in the school environment. I realized that people aren’t hard to get to know on this campus.
