So starting number one, everyone thinks that all your systems of courage, which is, I cannot say its force. But it is also not true. I think your sisters Yeah, they like to show shop with, like, expensive designer clothes and with bags. But they also like many people who are so rich like from the middle class. I just received the grand. That's why I'm here. Also, there is a lot of those international students, as they mentioned before, think more than forty percent population here, international students and I really love this thing because for me, it's really amazing to find out more about different.

USC is not in a bubble, so I'm Figueroa Street right now, and I just wanted to show you a little bit around. There's a lot of construction going on. But over here, spot Dodds, where people go to get doughnuts twenty four hours a day and copy when they're struggling to study. And then over here is Al Fuera, which is a popular like Mexican taco burrito type of stand. It's really cool. You see a lot of people there, especially. It's really pretty, like really close to L. A. Alive in the Staples Center. I could like Staples Center bigot. Seven. Get close. They're kind of like outlet mall tape of baseball doors. Now I know it's really important, like they tell you, don't go. But at the same time, I know that sometimes that's not possible. So the thing is, you just need to make sure you go a little bit so that is a fire truck close to the fire station. So you will hear the fire Department all the time. Especially you live in south because it's, like, right there. A little walk down. Figure out Fatburger. It's really good. Then you'll always know your home kind of our landmark that Felix you can see Felix the Here we are. Wow. So this is the new university village. It is actually really brand new. They just opened it in August of last year. So yeah, this first building over here is actually the freshman honors college. That's McCarthy over here all around. These are upperclassmen dorms. So I'm actually gonna live at the top of this one play up there. Another cool thing about the village is that we also have a target on the side behind these little umbrellas. And on this side, we have our own little trader Joe's, all around. You can just find, like, places to e. We have, like, some life organics that those side tables bake pear for ice cream. You can even get your nails done on the other side over here. And it's just a lot of cool stuff here in the village couches to chill out. Jim. There are a lot of weights machines on this floor.

Lifting. And doing more for workouts right in here. So there might be a team, actually. Oh, yeah. There's people playing basketball on there. But you go ahead and show you on the pool over here so you can see over there is the diving board, the diving pool. And then this is the main pool. People are swimming. And if you're a student here, you could swim here. There are certain hours of the day that it's available to you. But I do know some people. So right now I'm standing inside a typical lecture hall at USC. So, as you might notice, there is a bunch of seats with a professor's desk at the front, um, a screen in case we have a PowerPoint presentation. And so if you're entering into one of your general education courses or lower division major requirements, you may find yourself in a classroom setting such as this one. But as I mentioned, any class over fifty students is required to have a breakout discussion section. So if you find yourself and a larger lecture hall like this, which could range anywhere from fifty to two hundred students, then you will have that breakout discussion section capped at about eighteen students for a little more, one on one time with the teaching assistant as well as Right now, we're in a new North residence hall. It is one of our freshman living styles. Residence Hall is what you might see on film and television. It's about long hallway with a bunch of rooms on either side, each one to better use to desk two dressers and two roommates. This room right here is the residential Assistance Room, so it's a little bit different if you have a single room. This is what you look like. Here's the bed on all the states face a storage space. That's where he could hang all of your clothes and store your items. And I shoot window. Each room, no matter if you live in a single or double, comes with this micro fridge combination. So it's a microwave and a fridge and freezer on the bottom. And then this is Nick. This is his room. How do you enjoy living in a residential college? I love it's. This is like the traditional dorm style. So if you were to go outside into there's like rows of rooms like back to backs. He gets like, really know. Everybody loves in your community, and it's a really good mix of like a social space. But like because you have can also, like, be like, private and quiet if you want. I think there's like a little bit for everyone and nobody like, What's a person Orly? You could find like you could get a lot of storm like this. Thanks for letting us look around. Right now I'm sitting inside a classroom of Mark Taper Hall. It's one of our buildings here in campus that houses the majority of our lectures and discussions for general education courses. In fact, we say that you're not a true USC student unless you have a class here because it is inevitable that you will have a class here. But if you look around, as you can see, it's a pretty small environment. Some of our costumes are even smaller than this, and that's because USC has an average class size of twenty six students with an eight to one student to professor ratio. So that means that you're consistently in a small setting where you get to answer or ask questions to you, professor, and raise your hand during lecture. Now, with that being said, coming into USC as a freshman, you might be in some larger lecture style classes for your general education requirements or pretty major requirements, which could be anywhere from like two hundred students. However, any class that is over fifty students is required to have a breakout discussion section, which is taught by T A or teaching assistant. And they're there to answer any questions you may have, and discussion discussed what was discussed in lecture to make sure that you really have a good understanding of the class. This is one of the doors which creates next to the martial school. I think this one is the smallest Um, is I mentioned before? I do not leave, uh, the doors because I'm kind of talk for this already on DH. I do not have, uh, new plan. So don't go to die hoax. We're often just Sometimes when some of my friends who do live in a hole invite me to together to grovel Lynch also another hint. It's a good thing to have a friend who has a new plan because people have a new plan. They have, like a thing until free tickets for the for your friends, too, for free. So, like my friends away, Uh, I guess generous and nice with me. And I'll write you, like, during the semester at few tears for free, so it's a good thing But now I want to show you.
