 Making Your Way Around Los Angeles. Each year we find that more and more pupils are visiting USC without a vehicle and inevitably prospective students have a lot of questions about whether or perhaps not it is also feasible to get around the city without one. We have always been very happy to report that LA has evolved way beyond the normal ‘car culture’ that everyone has heard of, and offers lots of choices for those who have decided to keep their vehicles at home. USC especially offers a quantity of choices for students who choose mass transportation over mass traffic.

For the grocery shopping and friend-visiting needs USC Transportation Services operates a ton 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 service that students tell me personally they can’t live without is Campus Cruiser. With cars literally driven by fellow students, this free solution is just like a taxi and operates late into the night time, 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 only this, but Union Station is just a walk that is short all that Little Tokyo and historic Olvera Street need to offer.

To explore more of exactly what the town of Angels provides, there is an awesome public transit system that consists of light rail trains and buses. With light rail prevents opening 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 filming at Sony Studios, get up north to your 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 out the Aquarium of the Pacific or the Queen Mary in Long Beach, and enjoy Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena.

Finally, that you need to jump behind the wheel, there are ZipCars available to rent at USC by the hour or by the day, in addition to our very own Enterprise Rent-A-Car on campus if you ever find!

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

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

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

Well, the hour has arrived. The long reading process has arrive at an end.

Numerous emotions that are different for my attention, which makes it difficult for me to begin with. My brain is rushing. Therefore I’ll start out with the simple stuff: some basic 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 expect approximately 2,650 pupils will accept our offer. The average GPA of the 8,400 is more than 3.8 on a scale that is unweighted. The middle-50% SAT range is 2060-2250, and 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 a lot of them really like sushi.

There is difficult stuff: First, we are tired. Since mid-November, this team that is outstanding put it all on the line. We read, calculate GPAs, compose records, scroll and click through student files, weighing and comparing, all on behalf of those who used. Our company is also sad. Once we began reading, we met many outstanding pupils. But at the finish, we ought to make difficult, even painful choices. We take the role of advocate really really, so when we understand we ought to bid farewell to many perfectly suitable applicants, we get only a little cranky. We have a saying across the office: if it appears effortless, you are not carrying it out right.

And lots of good stuff: we’re excited. We can not wait to learn who will be enrolling at USC year * that is next. We are inspired, filled with hope for our future. So lots of our kids are filled with optimism, as well as fully expect, also assume they are going to simply take the global world in a better direction. Exactly 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 — in our labs, libraries, classrooms, symposia — making those dreams come real. The near future looks that are sure from where I sit.

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