As hundreds of newly admitted students for the freshman class of 2014 flood USC this week for one of several orientations held throughout the summer, they won’t be bringing their brand new USCards to a big white tent.
Ronald Tutor Campus Center opened two of its restaurants this week for business — Wahoo’s Fish Taco, moving from its previous location at Café 84, and Carl’s Jr., which operated out of The Lot up until the tent’s closure last month. Also slated to open its counters later this week is Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
The rest of the nine restaurants and cafes that will be operating out of the campus center will also open for business in the next two months, with training periods for its staff beginning up to two weeks before.
California Pizza Kitchen, Panda Express and Seeds Marketplace will begin accepting student business in July; August will bring newcomers Lemonade and Moreton Fig officially to campus, as well as reintroduce USC’s 23-year-old bar, Traditions, into the student perview.
Though construction still lines Trousdale Parkway, Trojan Hospitality began the process of moving student organizations and commercial outlets June 1. The campus center will also house the offices of the Alumni Center, Graduate and Professional Student Senate, the SCheduling Office, Admission Center, Undergraduate Student Government, KSCR radio station and Program Board, among others.
