SCampus Student Guidebook
“Barber shop is in the basement of the Student Union Building. With the variety and preferences of hair styles today, you will have to check this out for yourself. Careful girls, this is not a beauty parlor!”

Michelle recommends: Making Connections We have great resident advisors on our floors. Luckily my advisor is a violinist as well. I go to him a lot for advice; he’s been very helpful to me.

- Checking out SCampus
My first piece of USC memorabilia was my SCampus. I requested it because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to apply here, but then after reading it, I said, “This is my number one choice!

- Rising and shining
Crew’s motto is — “By 8 a.m., I’ve done twice as much as you have.” We have practice pretty much every day either at 5 or 5:30 a.m., so I get up before anyone on campus, basically. It’s difficult juggling classes, personal life, rowing, an on-campus job. But I feel like juggling a lot of things makes you a better time manager.
- Showing your pride
I work for the LGBT Resource Center. I’m the assistant to the director, so I’m basically the right-hand man: ordering supplies, helping set up events on campus. I’m planning the Second Chance Prom and then also our Lavender Graduation. I also speak on panels on and off campus for people who just have general questions about LGBT issues.

The Career Center is great. They completely helped me revamp my résumé and my cover letter. After I revamped my résumé, I submitted it to the director of the LGBT Resource Center, and that’s when I got my job. And the Trojan network is world famous: for most of my internships, the first- and second-round interviews were conducted by Trojans.
- Stepping into Mudd
I love Mudd Hall. It has this Old World feel to it. It reminds me of Game of Thrones. And the library itself reminds me of Harry Potter. It’s quiet, and when the wind blows, you hear the creaking of the building. It’s just cool. And the people who work behind the desks are really friendly.
