Local Cuisine. Today’s post is presented by one of our admission counselors, Alejandra.

As a Los Angeles native, my thing that is favorite about city is the diversity. Los Angeles is a cultural and cultural hub that allows us to own usage of wonderful art museums, musical venues, and my personal favorite, delicious food! I am known in the office for being a food aficionado and am constantly surprised by what l . a . plus the USC that is local neighborhood to offer in this respect.

One of my favorite USC neighborhood establishments is Mercado La Paloma (The Dove Market), a food that is mini within walking distance of campus. La Paloma features cuisines from all over the world including my two favorites, Chichen Itza, that provides food from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and Mo-Chica which features gourmet Peruvian food at a price that is reasonable. Mo restaurant that is best in l . a . by LA Magazine in 2010. This marketplace is definitely a hidden gem in our community.

Every summer time, once per week, our admission counselors have a long meal at a neighborhood restaurant and then explore what our community has to provide by visiting local galleries and museums. A year ago one of the greatest hits had been the 23rd Street Café which can be accessible utilising the USC Tram. It’s a fusion of Indian-Mexican meals, with a few of the most mouthwatering chicken tikka masala quesadillas.

Chano’s, a USC institution, is located a walk that is short campus. Aside from the fact you can find some pretty good Mexican food there that it is open into the wee hours of the night. Surrounding Chano’s is almost any and every food that is fast that you can buy. Our office favorites include Five Guys, Free Birds, Chipotle, and Chick-Fil-A all within hiking distance!

In addition to some off-campus favorites, I would like to highlight the excellent food options we have on campus. Our new Ronald Tutor Campus Center also has plenty of options for students including Panda Express, Wahoo’s Fish Taco, California Pizza Kitchen, and Carl’s Jr. Lemonade, a Los Angeles boutique café, has local and organic foods and is additionally one of many most readily useful food that is healthy on campus. In addition they have 4 different flavors of fresh lemonade every single day, my being that is favorite blueberry-mint. If you’re searching for an all-you-can-eat experience, the dining halls on campus, such as Parkside Residential Dining Hall, provide a number of cuisine which range from pizza to international specialties.

Recently in Los Angeles there has been a food truck trend, boasting a few of the most innovative, delicious, affordable, and food that is quick. Last week we took a lunch day at the food vehicles. In the picture you can view us getting prepared to chow down on Filipino style tacos and good old burgers that are american. They have been on campus daily and can be tracked through Twitter.

Well, I can talk about food for hours on end, however I encourage you to not only experience what our school has to offer on campus, but also get to know our neighborhood as you can see. Who knows? You may possibly encounter one of us at lunch 1 day!

When To Consult With Campus


through the next months that are few we anticipate to host many potential students and their families on campus. Although we’ve touched on the visit programs USC offers in a past we blog post, we wanted to deal with it once more since many students make spring travel plans to tour college that is various.

It may seem like college applications are far, far in the distance if you are a current high school junior. Truth find out, your whole senior school career will help shape your college applications! We encourage students to start visiting campuses to shape ideas about what they do or do not want in a college since we know many high school juniors are looking ahead to life after high school. It’s never too early to begin with thinking about some of the tough concerns: Do I want to go to college close to home or far away? Am I looking for a large or even a school that is small? Just What types of academic programs might we be interested in studying? Even as a college student if you don’t have answers to these questions yet, a campus visit will help you start to envision yourself.

If you are a current high school senior who has already applied to USC, you’re likely waiting to know about your admission decision. Since all applicants that are first-year be informed of our admission decisions by April 1st, we provide on-campus see programs especially for admitted students through the entire month of April. More info about these programs will be available in your acknowledge packet. Since we have designed programs specifically for admitted students and their families while we hope all admitted students will be able to visit campus, it is a good idea to wait until after you’ve received your admission decision.
