Welcome Week kicks off the year
USC President C. L. Max Nikias joins in as the university welcomes new and returning Trojans with a week of special events. But settle in quickly: Classes start Monday.
Nia Ali wins silver in the 100-meter high hurdles, while April Ross captures bronze in beach volleyball. They’re keeping with tradition: USC has produced more Olympians, more overall medalists and more gold medal winners than any other U.S. university.
Allyson Felix won a gold medal with the USA women’s 4×100-meter relay and Aaron Brown and Andre De Grasse won a bronze medal with the Canada men’s 4x100-meter relay at the Summer Olympics on Friday. Earlier Kami Craig and Kaleigh Gilchrist won gold in water polo.
USC researchers examined every cancer diagnosis in the county over 37 years — more than 1.3 million in all. They found some surprising news about what happened in the past, and gained insight into how people can better understand their own future cancer risk.
