I worked with the athletic medicine program. Depending on the sport, the time commitment varies. It is still a big time commitment, but, for example, football is a bigger time commitment than most sports. Some are offered pay, some are not. Responsibilities vary, but do include helping the trainer, keeping the work environment clean, setting up water and powerade for the athletes, etc.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students from Southern California usually love USC from the beginning and strengthen their bonds with the school as time passes. Students who travel to USC from longer distances tend to adapt more slowly, dealing at first with the culture shock that inevitably comes with a first impression of LA. Universally, those who can survive the transition into the USC way of life fall in love with the school after first semester. Typically, students entering school with a skeptical mind-set ends up getting the most pride out of being a Trojan. At the very least, they come away with a new affinity toward college football.

The opportunities on campus are plentiful, and in LA, opportunities are endless. Time flies for everyone at USC, and changes in living conditions, academic standards, and career goals come quicker than newcomers might expect. USC graduates are sure to look back on a college experience that could not have been offered anywhere else. Basically, the more that students are willing to explore the opportunities available to them, the more they endorse the idea that USC is the perfect school for its time and place.
