 Navigating Around La. Each year we find that progressively students are arriving at USC without an automobile and inevitably potential students have a lot of questions about whether or otherwise not it’s even possible to get around the town without one. We am happy to report that LA has evolved way beyond the normal ‘car culture’ that everyone has heard of, and offers lots of choices if you decided to leave their automobiles at home. USC especially provides a true quantity of choices for pupils who prefer mass transportation over mass traffic.

For the grocery shopping and friend-visiting needs USC Transportation Services operates a lot of shuttle buses that run in and around the University Park Campus neighborhood throughout the day. Yourself taking a class, starting an internship, or snagging a job on USC’s Health Science Campus, Transportation Services has you covered too intercampus shuttles run to and from the Health Science Campus, which is located about 10 miles northeast of the main campus, throughout the day if you find.

The solution that students tell me they can not live without is Campus Cruiser. With cars literally driven by fellow students, this free service is like a taxi and operates late into the evening, so you have a safe and reliable way to get home whether you have a late night at the library or at a friend’s apartment.

The central hub of LA’s metro and rail systems in addition to campus and intercampus shuttles, Transportation Services operates a shuttle that runs back and forth to Union Station. Union Station is home to Amtrak, Southern California’s commuter train Metrolink, and LA Metro’s light bus and rail line hub. Just What does that mean for you? From Union Station you can basically get anywhere in California. Not just that, but Union Station is really a walk that is short all that minimal Tokyo and historic Olvera Street have to offer.

To explore more of just what the town of Angels has to offer, there is an incredible public transit system that consists of light rail trains and buses. With light rail stops starting up in the near future right throughout the street from USC, students can hop on the train and head west to stylish Culver City to catch a recording at Sony Studios, go up north to the Valley for a taste of the suburban life in Studio City, spend on a daily basis at Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City, head south and check the Aquarium out of the Pacific or the Queen Mary in Long Beach, and luxuriate in Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena.

Finally, in the event that you ever find that you’ll require to jump behind the wheel, there are ZipCars open to rent at USC by the hour or by the day, as well as our extremely own Enterprise Rent-A-Car on campus!

I think you’ll find that not having automobile is a non-issue these days in LA. You could also get to see and understand the populous city a bit better by hopping in the passenger seat.

If it seems easy, you’re not doing it appropriate

Today’s post is written by visitor blogger Kirk Brennan, Director of Admission.

Well, the hour has arrived. The reading that is long has come to an end.

Many various emotions compete for my attention, that makes it difficult for me to begin. My head is rushing. And so I’ll start with the simple stuff: some fundamental numbers.

Year we received nearly 46,000 applications from first-year students, 24% more than last. We offered autumn admission to about 8,400 students, and we anticipate approximately 2,650 pupils will accept our offer. The average GPA of the 8,400 is higher than 3.8 on a scale that is unweighted. The middle-50% SAT range is 2060-2250, plus the middle-50% ACT range is 30-34. Students come from all 50 states, over 70 countries that are different and from all walks of life. And plenty of them really like sushi.

There is difficult stuff: First, we are exhausted. Since mid-November, this outstanding team has put it all regarding the line. We read, calculate GPAs, compose records, scroll and click through student files, weighing and comparing, all on behalf of those who applied. We’re also sad. Once we began reading, we met many outstanding students. But at the final, we should make difficult, even painful choices. We take the role of advocate very really, so when we understand we must bid farewell to many completely suitable candidates, we get just a little cranky. We have a saying round the office: if it seems simple, you are not carrying it out right.

And lots of nutrients: We are excited. We can’t wait to learn who will be enrolling at USC next year *. We are influenced, filled with hope for our future. So a lot of our high school students are filled with optimism, and additionally they fully expect, also assume they will just take the world in a better direction. Just what a job that is great have — daydreamers of sorts: we read about the great dreams of our pupils, and we imagine them in our community — inside our labs, libraries, classrooms, symposia — making those dreams come real. The future sure looks bright from where I sit.

I really hope all students who stumble into this blog find the right school them reach their full potential, to soar to unimaginable heights for them: one that will help.
