A hub of freshman life, close to libraries, dining facilities and the McCarthy Quad, New North is a popular location for students new to USC. The residential college is noted for its vibrant atmosphere and strong personal and academic support network. The residential college fosters a community of friends by offering programs that draw upon the cultural resources of both USC and Los Angeles and encourage students to learn and interact with one another. Every Tuesday evening, the community gathers for a special dinner, often featuring musical entertainment or a distinguished university guest, and on weekends, New North offers opportunities for students to attend concerts, plays, films and sports events.
