I have written a similar post before but Ill do it again!
Rush or recruitment is when guys and girls go through the week-long process of joining a sorority or fraternity. As a international student all I knew about rush was from the movies or TV shows like Greek and such. In real life It was kinda similar, it was equally as scary and intimidating and despite promising myself to not get really involved I ended up crying when I got the house that I wanted Delta Gamma. The entire nerve wreaking process and getting my bid was one of the best memories from LA.
Paul Orfaelas class:
Paul Orfaela is a professor at USC, but also the multi billionaire creator of Kinkos (coopying store in US). I has a class at USC that is extremely difficult to get into, and you have to apply for it and write an essay. I got in as every thuresday for an entire semester we ate dinner at one of the nice restaurants on campus. A dinner he paid for while we discussed current events and news. At the end of the semester he invites his students to his country club in santa barbara.
The ultimate college destination! I have no words.. Ill give you pictures.
