Making Your Way Around La. Each year we realize that more students are arriving at USC without a car or truck and students that are inevitably prospective a lot of questions about whether or perhaps not it’s even possible to get around the city without one. We have always been thrilled to report that LA has evolved way beyond the typical ‘car culture’ that we have all heard of, and offers lots of choices for folks who decided to keep their automobiles in the home. USC especially offers a true quantity of choices for students who prefer mass transit over mass traffic.

For the grocery shopping and friend-visiting needs USC Transportation Services operates a huge amount of shuttle buses that run in and around the University Park Campus neighborhood throughout the day. When you’re going for a class, starting an internship, or snagging work on USC’s Health Science Campus, Transportation Services has you covered too intercampus shuttles set you back and from the wellness Science Campus, that will be located about 10 kilometers northeast of the main campus, each day.

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

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. What does that mean for you? From Union Station you can just about go anywhere in California. Not only this, but Union Station is just a short walk from 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 future right over the street from USC, students can hop on the train and head west to fashionable Culver City to catch a recording at Sony Studios, get up north to your Valley for a taste of the suburban life in Studio City, spend every day at Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City, mind 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 need to have to jump behind the wheel, there are ZipCars available to rent at USC per hour or every day, along with our extremely own Enterprise Rent-A-Car on campus!

I do believe you’ll find that not having vehicle is a non-issue these days in LA. You may even get to see and understand the city a bit better by hopping in the passenger chair.

It right if it seems easy, you’re not doing

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

Well, the full hour has arrived. The reading that is long has arrive at an end.

Many emotions that are different for my attention, rendering it difficult for me to start. My brain is racing. So I’ll begin with the simple stuff: some fundamental numbers.

We received nearly 46,000 applications from first-year pupils, 24% more than this past year. We offered fall admission to about 8,400 students, and we anticipate approximately 2,650 students will accept our offer. The average GPA of the 8,400 is more than 3.8 on an unweighted scale. The middle-50% SAT range is 2060-2250, and the middle-50% ACT range is 30-34. Students originate from all 50 states, over 70 different nations, and from all walks of life. And lots of them really like sushi.

There is difficult stuff: First, we are tired. Since mid-November, this team that is outstanding place it all regarding the line. We read, calculate GPAs, write records, click and scroll through student files, weighing and comparing, all on behalf of these who applied. We have been also sad. Once we began reading, we met many outstanding students. But at the conclusion, we should make difficult, even painful choices. We take the role of advocate extremely really, so when we realize we must bid farewell to many candidates that are perfectly suitable we get just a little cranky. We’ve a saying around the office: if it appears effortless, you are not carrying it out right.

And lots of nutrients: Our company is excited. We can not wait to learn who will be enrolling at USC next year *. We are encouraged, filled up with hope for our future. So many of our kids are filled with optimism, as well as fully expect, even assume they will take the world in a better way. Just what a job that is great have — daydreamers of sorts: we read in regards to the great dreams of our pupils, and we imagine them in our community — in our labs, libraries, classrooms, symposia — making those dreams come real. The future sure looks bright from where we sit.

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