Last Saturday, we took a field trip down to USC (University of Southern California) for our annual college tour.
USC is one of the more well known private universities out here in the LA area with great programs such as business, performing arts, engineering, communications and more. And because we have staff that have attended or are currently attending for undergraduate/post-graduate studies at this school, the tour was expected to be a great experience for the students.
Just like a lot of other well known colleges out there, USC is a great school with a beautiful campus. The students were able to visit different buildings and classrooms throughout the campus, including the Cinematic Arts building, science building and many more.
During their tour, they were also able to stop by a newly renovated area called the new University Village, which is right off the main campus. There are dorms, a dining hall and even some retail shops such as Trader Joe's. It was a huge upgrade from what the area was like before the renovation, and the students and all the staff ate at the new dining hall at the University Village.
As students prepare to move up to college, it is very important to visit different college campuses and to see the different environments. This was definitely an exciting and a fun tour, and we encourage all those who are going into college to take the time to visit different campuses.
