Although hard to quantify or truly understand until one has experienced it first hand, the USC program is unique because of the network created by the "Trojan Family." USC students, faculty, and staff are incredibly committed to the success of the larger USC community and as a result the professional and personal support is immense. I loved that our class really worked for collective success, not just individual gain. The faculty was engaged and engaging and I believe that they truly expect that we will continue to call on them for support throughout our careers. This experience was life changing not only because of the professional opportunities that it helped to create, but because of the way the experience changed my own lens of how I view myself.
