Brimming with (Daily) Trojan pride

For a recent “day in the life” video, our multimedia director asked me how I would describe my job, suggesting I say something about being the leader. Instead I told her I was a shepherd herding cats. Those of you who pick up the Daily Trojan each morning — or even just once in awhile […]


Editorial board, boy bands and other musings

As the cliché goes, if you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life. I’m not sure who to credit this grand cliché to, but I’m going on record to state that whoever they are, they are unabashedly lying to your face. Nothing quite parallels my deep, profound and — according […]


A day in the life: Tackling issues behind the desk

For those of you who’ve been around as long as I have, Sunday’s announcement that former head coach Steve Sarkisian was asked to take an indefinite leave of absence from his role at the helm of Trojan Football was probably unanticipated. But for upperclassmen, it was eerily familiar to a situation that occurred just two […]


University on a conquest for excellence

Trojans may have just had 14 weeks off from school, but in that time USC has hardly been sitting idle. While students were taking the opportunity to work, intern or just catch up on some sleep, the University has opened a new school, reached more than $4.5 billion in its $6 billion fundraising campaign, continued […]


Berlin takes the cake for most interesting city

Some people have asked me what my favorite city I’ve traveled to so far is. I can’t exactly say I have a favorite (besides London, of course). Dublin had the friendliest people.

In Photos: Street food around the world

When it comes to street food, Armando’s, Amazebowls and the Boba Truck are just a few favorites among USC students. Whether it’s dim sum, burritos or Korean BBQ, you can’t go wrong with the kitchens of the streets — both here in L.A. and the world beyond. Street food vending is a global phenomenon, from bustling night […]


In Photos : Architecture from a global perspective

“Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul,” Ernest Dimnet, French writer, once said. This art of building becomes what we make our homes. It lives within the very designs that reflect our culture and heritage, mirrors to the eras in which they first arose. Here are a handful […]


A journey: From tourist to native Londoner

Sometimes I forget that London is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and not just any ordinary city. You see, though I live in central London, I don’t live next to Big Ben or the London Eye. When I walk out of my apartment in the morning, I see joggers out for […]


An ode to the Underground

Londoners are big fans of silence. As a devotee myself, I’ve quickly adapted to the expected quiet on public transportation. In fact, I’ve begun to relish it. And while buses are nice to sit back and look out the window, I’ve found that the London Underground, usually just called the Tube here, is the best […]


In Photos: Sweet treats around the world

Fellow Trojans currently studying abroad managed to snap these SCrumptious photos of confections from all around the world. Here’s a peek into sweets from the United Kingdom to Jordan. From Belgian chocolate to mochi ice cream, this is how dessert-lovers in different parts of the globe indulge. United Kingdom:  Cupcake from Hummingbird Bakery (Kensington Gardens, London) Chocolates at Harrods (Knightsbridge, London) Sundae […]
