An unmatched Olympic heritage
With the Rio games fast approaching, consider this: No U.S. university has produced more Olympians, more overall medalists or more gold medal winners than USC.
Twice a week, the student volunteers of Share a Meal head out with a truckload of burritos, bringing food, water and hope to people living on the streets of Los Angeles. Listen to their story, and the stories of those they’re helping.
Researchers from USC Viterbi’s Signal Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory are exploring whether machine learning might play an important role in helping screen for autism and guide intervention by caregivers and practitioners.
The games get under way Aug. 5 and more than a few Trojans are headed down to Rio. USC has produced more Olympians, overall medalists and gold medalists than any other university in the United States, and a USC athlete has won a medal at every Summer Olympics since 1904.
