 Making Your Way Around La. Each year we discover that more and more students are coming to USC without a car or truck and inevitably prospective students have a great deal of questions about whether or otherwise not it is also possible to get around the city without one. I am happy to report that LA has evolved way beyond the conventional ‘car culture’ that we have all heard of, and offers lots of options for individuals who have decided to keep their vehicles in the home. USC especially delivers a true amount of alternatives for pupils who prefer mass transit over mass traffic.

For your 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 through the day. If you find yourself going for a class, starting an internship, or snagging a job on USC’s Health Science Campus, Transportation Services has you covered too intercampus shuttles set you back and through the wellness Science Campus, which is situated about 10 miles northeast of the main campus, each day.

The service that students tell me they cannot live without is Campus Cruiser. With cars literally driven by other students, this free solution is just like a taxi and runs late into the night, so whether there is a evening at the library or at a buddy’s apartment, there is a safe and reliable way to get house.

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 essentially go anywhere in California. Not just that, but Union Station is a walk that is short all that Little Tokyo and historic Olvera Street have to offer.

To explore more of just what the town of Angels is offering, there is an incredible general public transit system that consists of light rail trains and buses. With light rail stops opening 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, go 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 out the Aquarium 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 on an hourly basis or every day, as well as our very own Enterprise Rent-A-Car on campus!

I think you’ll find that perhaps not having automobile is a non-issue these days in LA. You may also 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 arrived at an end.

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

We received nearly 46,000 applications from first-year students, 24% more than last year. We offered fall 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 greater than 3.8 on an unweighted scale. The middle-50% SAT range is 2060-2250, and also the middle-50% ACT range is 30-34. Students originate from all 50 states, over 70 different countries, 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 on the line. We read, calculate GPAs, write records, scroll and click through student files, weighing and comparing, all on behalf of these who applied. Our company is also sad. As we began reading, we met many outstanding students. But at the finish, we must make difficult, even painful decisions. We take the role of advocate extremely seriously, so when we realize we should bid farewell to many candidates that are perfectly suitable we get just a little cranky. We’ve a saying round the office: if it appears easy, you’re not carrying it out right.

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

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