A bill waiting on Newsom's approval will force public institutions to provide students access to the "abortion pill'" starting in January 2023. USC has been offering this service to its students for several years, but is looking to do even more.
Popular student hangout spot Study Hall is closing its doors this winter, according to its co-owner.
The Black and Gold came in looking to break a three-game losing streak. The team hasn’t won since Aug. 21, when it bested the San Jose Earthquakes. Despite a great start to the season, where the team held 64 points as the first-place team in the Western Conference, LAFC has not been the same in the past month. Since LAFC lost its El Trafico match against arch-nemesis Los Angeles Galaxy, it’s been going through a slump.
USC women’s volleyball defeated the Villanova Bulldogs to claim the Trojan Invitational in three straight sets. Saturday night’s sweep was the second 3-0 win of the season for the Women of Troy; the first was against Howard University earlier that day. The Trojans hosted Yale, Howard and Villanova in a round-robin tournament.
For exactly one week, Trojan Nation was riding high. Fans hopped onto the Kedon Slovis bandwagon, ready to ride it all the way to a national championship. But they got way ahead of themselves. Slovis isn’t the second coming of Jesus Christ sent to save USC football, like many thought.
Freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis dropped back in the pocket — a third-and-six play on USC’s first overtime drive following BYU’s opening three-point drive. The pass came out into double coverage, was batted into the air and nabbed by a Cougar. BYU fans jumped the bleachers and stormed the field to celebrate with their team that just upset No. 24 USC 30-27 in overtime.
At a time when the need for mental health resources on college campuses is more pressing than ever, USC’s student health center is looking to fix two of its most critiqued shortcomings: outside referrals and long wait times for counseling. The hope is that these new initiatives will cut down both long wait times for consultations as well as the number of students that are referred to therapists off-campus. Engemann believes these new resources will allow more to get the help they need.
An email sent by Vice President of Student Affairs Winston Crisp Friday morning detailed that the Trojans will play the Utah Utes at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 20th -- the same day as President Carol Folt’s Inauguration as well as the filming of MSNBC’s Climate Forum. The announcement comes after the PAC-12 made an agreement with the NFL, where USC’s football team agreed to share the Coliseum with the Los Angeles Rams - forcing the Trojans to shift some of their weekend games to the weekday.
