Here are a few of the developments that are new can expect to see this fall:
A new dining hall that is residential!
A former food court, Café 84 will be transformed into USC's 3rd dining hall that is formal. Another dining facility, Everybody's Kitchen (EVK), will get a remodel as well as the addition of the brand new grill section and a Starbucks!
A upgrade that is beautiful the guts of campus!
Hahn Plaza (the certain area right in front of Tommy Trojan) is getting a makeover! The plaza has been enhanced with a beautiful stone walkway along with the redesign of thePatsy and Forrest Shumway Water Fountain.
A home that is new Trojan Athletes!
The much expected opening for the John McKay Center is fast approaching! A year . 5 in the making, this new athletic center and office complex are starting its doorways to pupils and athletes come early july. The McKay Center will serve due to the fact house for Trojan athletics and house a range training facilities, including a practice football industry in the basement degree!
You will find more information that is detailed future USC construction projects including plans for the redevelopment for the University Village, the latest Uytengsu Aquatics Center, the completion of the Cinematic Arts Complex and so many more projects.
The opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympics is coming up this Friday! Whether you love viewing events that are individual team events, there's one thing for everybody else.
The London Olympics present an opportunity also to cheer on current and former Trojans! There will be more than 30 athletes participating in sports such as water polo, volleyball, and track representing the Trojan family. There are a number of current USC coaches who is going to be lending their coaching expertise during the Olympic games.
USC has a long tradition of planning Olympic athletes. From 1904 to 2008, there were nearly 400 athletes who either went to the university before, during, or after their Olympic competition. USC has delivered more athletes towards the Olympics than virtually any university and our athletes have acquired a grand total of 262 medals.
The Olympics are really a time for you to cheer on our country's athletes and also unite together for a global platform. I enjoy watching the beach volleyball matches and I also'm excited to see how far the two former Trojans competing in beach volleyball go! look out for most of USC's many Olympic competitors—they simply might bring house the gold.
The Expo Line is open!! finally!
After six years of expectation the expansion of Los Angeles's light rail train system (LA Metro) has finally opened. The Expo Line is the way that is perfect USC pupils, staff, and faculty getting round the city without getting behind the wheel. The brand new line has three stops straight next door from our campus. One stop is on the side that is northeast of plus the other two are on the south side of campus.
By utilising the Expo Line, students can go just about anywhere in the city and take complete benefit of just what Los Angeles has to offer. It really is simply a short five-minute trip on the Expo Line to the Los Angeles Metro Station and from there students can connect to another light rail train lines that operate throughout the city.
Some members of our workplace have already traded in their cardinal and gold parking permits for the monthly metro pass to conquer their commutes to work. Our workplace is slowly overtaking most of the seats in the 8:18am train! Our experience happens to be wonderful and we're excited to tell students and families concerning the convenience of getting around l . a . when we hit the road in the next few weeks for our autumn recruitment travel.

Summer is coming to a detailed. Classes at USC resume next week. And the most things that are exciting happening on campus this week—our students are going in! Our campus is busy with students and families getting everything all set for the year that is academic. Welcome has officially begun week.
In between the necessary tasks like becoming a member of the USCard , becoming knowledgeable about the libraries on campus, and picking out a meal plan, students and parents have actually multiple events and tasks to select from during Welcome Week. There was a greeting Reception especially for moms and dads hosted by the USC Parents Council plus the Office for Parent Programs to start parents that are connecting all the resources our campus has to provide them. Lots of the departments that are academic campus are holding open homes for students to come meet faculty, staff, and other current students within their program. There is A work Study Job Fair and an Involvement Fair, even as we find it is important for USC students to lead a life that is balanced of the classroom along with inside the class. During the evenings, you will find activities such as being a 'Welcome Back Dance,' a DJ performance, and— probably one of the most anticipated events— the Fall Carnival and Concert.
As you're able to imagine, it's a serious time that is busy campus! It's exciting to see freshmen that are new in and just starting to realize what their college experience might entail. It's refreshing to see faces that are familiar to campus after studying abroad or working over the summer.
