Move-In Day at USC, Continued

It was a beautiful day today at the University of Southern California. I always enjoy our visits to the campus, but there is a special "vibe" on move-in day as the new school year starts. USC is famous for its school spirit, and the enthusiasm all around the campus is really contagious.

I took a number of photos today and thought I'd share a few tonight. (Click on photos to enlarge.) I'll be posting more pictures later in the week.

Below is Bovard Auditorium. The exterior has been featured in countless films and TV shows, including LEGALLY BLONDE -- it stood in for Harvard -- and GILMORE GIRLS, where it played the role of Yale.

Although not affiliated with any one religious group, USC is a very faith-friendly campus. There are many places to worship, both on campus and immediately north of campus in the University Park area, and there are numerous religious groups active on campus.

This will be a challenging semester for our daughter, who among other things is studying mineralogy and chemistry this fall as she decides whether to pursue a minor in geology.

Fight on!
