USC Football Game at the Coliseum

November 11, 2016

I attended a home USC football game in person for the first time in grad school last week. It was a blast! Home games (when the team does not travel to another school) are held at the LA Coliseum, just across the street from USC’s campus, and home of the 1984 Olympics.

I also attended the Graduate Students of BME Tailgate before the game, and enjoyed meeting classmates in a relaxed social setting with free food and drinks.

Like a good Trojan, I kicked the flagpoles – at the end of Trousdale Parkway facing Exposition Blvd – for good luck on my way to the stadium.

I got to attend this game for free because I volunteered in Troy Camp’s “Pass the Can” event. It’s an amazing philanthropic student-run event that happens every year. Its only downside is sitting in the general section where people aren’t as spirited as the student section. But hey, it’s free and for a good cause!

Tomorrow USC plays the Huskies, the University of Washington team. The Viterbi GAPP Office has been cool enough to organize a Game Watch party with food and drinks at Tommy’s Place in the Campus Center and explain the rules of the game to those who are new to it. Fight on!
