What We Love About Fall at USC


Fall is a special time of year at USC. For our freshmen students it marks the beginning of their college experience. For our admission staff it marks the beginning of the recruitment cycle for our next freshmen class. For students and staff fall is a wonderful time of year for many different reasons. We thought it would be nice to survey our some of our students and admission counselors to see why they enjoy the fall at USC so much.

Here’s what some of our students had to say:

“I love producing TV shows at USC’’s Annenberg TV News” – Jake, Senior, Broadcast and Digital Journalism, Ridgefield CT

“I love seeing so many alumni come back to USC Football games to support the Trojans” – Pooja, Junior, Kinesiology, Cupertino, CA

“I love seeing all the new students getting involved with the different student organizations who recruit at the start of the semester” – Matt, Senior, Public Policy Management and Planning, Irvine, CA

“I look forward to a cappella auditions and welcoming our new members” – Trace, Junior, Broadcast and Digital Journalism, Elmhurst, IL

“FOOTBALL” – Ryan, Senior, Accounting, Chicago, IL

Here is what some of our admission counselors had to say:

“I love leaving work each day and hearing the marching band practice at the track stadium and listen to Dr. Art Bartner direct the group. I love that the band allows us to run on the track during their practices. Good music to get you fired up!” – Michael Gulotta

” I love fall because the students come back and bring life back to campus!  It’s great to hear what they did over the summer.” – Samantha Schreiber

Conquest is every fall and it’s a sendoff for our football team, but it’s also a lot of fun for the rest of campus.  The main quad gets turned into a carnival, with a Ferris wheel, fireworks, bonfire, and food.  But the best part comes at the end of the night when they start the concert.  Every year they bring amazing artists to campus to perform for students.  My favorite show was Lupe Fiasco!” – Kendall Williams

The Trojan Knights” – Olivia Sajjadieh

“I love when the weather actually turns to fall and the leaves begin to change color, especially in Alumni Park – it’s the perfect setting with all the trees and Doheny in the background!” – Neelam Savla
