Favorite Quote: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama

Advice to Students: The wonderful thing about being you is that you are uniquely created to think for yourself, represent yourself and be the best version of yourself. So, do just that!  This starts today: get involved around campus, be intentional in making friends who are going to be just a successful as you are, connect with your advisors and professors, as we are all here to support the best version of you. You matter at USC!
