Today's post is an ode to my alma mater, The University of Southern California.
From the first moment I set foot on the campus of the USC, when I was 17, I knew that I wanted to be a Trojan.
I feel in love with the quads, the fountains, the iconic Doheny Library and Bovard Auditorium, and of course, Tommy Trojan. I loved the sports, the students, and the academics.

I went on to spend some of the best years of my life at USC. Meeting and living with my best friends in the Pardee Tower Dorms, Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, and City Park Apartments.
Partying at the 901 Club (the 9-0), the 29th Street Cafe (the 2-9), Traditions (Traddy's), and Fraternities (the Row). And of course, meeting the guy who'd later become my husband at the 9-0 and dating him.
(Do you like this old silly photo of us from 2004? Drinking Bud Light on the porch of The Mr.'s fraternity -- oh, those were the days.)
Oh yeah, and I did study too. I actually studyed a lot. In fact, I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Communication from The Annenberg School. I loved my major, my classes, and being a part of Annenberg. I was an Annenberg Ambassador and on the board of the Annenberg Honor Society for several semesters.
But, one of the best things about USC is the Football games. The entire campus becomes one giant day-long tailgate and the Memorial Colosseum fills with fans. I love Game Day at USC!
I'd be lying if I said I didn't really miss being at student at USC sometimes. It's just such an amazing experience to be a Trojan.
But at least we make it back to campus for all of the Football games so we can relive our "glory days" for a few days a year.
Does anyone love their Alma Mater as much as I do?
