The Freshman Experience
In this episode, Britney is joined by three freshmen (Patrick Connors '24, Melissa Mae Larot '25, and Scott Castillo '24) to talk all about their first year at USC. The pandemic has affected us all, but how have our new trojans adjusted to this unique freshman experience? We talk about the MCU, Bible Studies, and some of our favorite classes at USC. If there is one takeaway from this episode it is that our freshmen are insightful and affirm that the future of our Catholic community is in great hands! ---------------- Once you're done listening to the podcast, let us know your thoughts through this google form: https://forms.gle/aW65tgdeRL4eJ2669.
