Would you like to experience the opportunity of a lifetime? Come experience a preview of Somerville Place THIS FALL! We will be offering this opportunity from October 3rd to November 17th for prospective high school seniors only.

 The Somerville Place Overnight Experience gives prospective students the chance to experience life as a college student by shadowing current USC students to class as well as spending the night on Somerville Place. Somerville Place is a Residential themed floor designed for first year students to learn about and explore African American culture within the USC community. This program develops students into well rounded campus leaders who are University scholars and are active within the community. Not only does Somerville have a long legacy and rich tradition within the USC community, read some of our student testimonials here!

If you are interested, please fill out the Overnight Experience Inquiry Form here and someone from our office will be in contact with you soon. Please note that completion of the form does not guarantee participation in the program.

If you have any additional questions contact CBCSA at  or (213) 740-8257 (Monday-Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm).
