Hot property

The USC Department of Public Safety (DPS) posted signs in several areas around residence halls where bike theft has been frequently documented.

Signs warn students of leaving bikes unlocked or not locked to bike racks. Posted areas include Parkside, EVK and Marks Tower.

Now you see it, now you don't

First it was there, now the facilities management building is gone. As part of the construction of the the new USC School for the Cinematic Art's new building funded by the creator of Star Wars, the FMS building was demolished.

The next stage of building involves putting up fences to contain the construction debris.

Ed Woods are in

For the past eleven years USC has had its 24 hour student-run film contest, Ed Wood. This year the theme was "my eyes are killing me". Besides incorporating the theme students must use a mirror as a prop and be done in 24 hours. See the USC calendar for screening times.

Before the start of the contest, hundreds of students lined up in their filming groups to sign in and put their signatures on the Ed Wood posters.

Two Losses for Men's Volleyball

Friday the men's volleyball team lost in four sets to San Diego State.

This is the second game in the Galen Center for the men's team.

Something fishy?

Recent menu at Everybody's Kitchen (more commonly know as EVK) in the past week had some unusual foods, namely seafood.

Seafood out for grabs at this a la cart establishment include shrimp, lobster and crab ravioli and oysters on the half shell.

Students discussing the recent addition of fresh seafood at the cafeteria often sound skeptical about induldging in the seafood, often surprised at the unusual presence of seafood alongside college favories such as pizza and soft serve ice cream.

Bringing down the 'Cats

Oh yeaaa! Headline in tomorrow's Los Angeles Times Sports section should read something along these lines: "USC Claws Past No. 11 Arizona, 80-73".

This game was especially impressive because of the amazing crowd participation. The student section was amazing! Moments after end of the game students finally got to rush the court in the new Galen Center for the first time.

Fight On!

From forth the fatal loins

After a very wet 2006 spring, one of the long-time members of the USC community fell. Yes, it was one of the great trees in Alumni Park. During the 2006 winter break four new trees were planted. These new additions will eventually take the place of the trees that have fallen in past years in the Alumni Park region. On behalf of everyone who walks through the park daily: Welcome to the the Trojan Family!

Reselling books

As with every semester, I start off by attempting to resell my books to the bookstore. This time I got a whopping $28! I went back into the bookstore and found that I could repurchase the same books as used for over $150. Something seems a little wrong with that. I guess that is how the USC bookstore is the most profitable college bookstore in the US. To make matters worse, the customer service man outside who purchased my books was the snobby/unapologetic type. A wholly unwelcome experience overall. I can hardly wait until next semester.


After some contemplation I think that I will write about the little things that I find happening on the USC campus and such. I tend to be around campus 24/7, so I should have plenty of opportunities to put write a bit about the stuff I run into. Hey, if I really get into it I might put some photos!

First day at blogging

Yep, now I can officially say that I have a blog. Now the question is what to write about.
