Describe your favorite USC Thornton experience so far.

My experiences at Thornton have been amazing, so I can’t pick a favorite! I’ve met so many incredible people and talented musicians that I’ve learned so much just in the short amount of time I have been enrolled at the beginning of Freshman year. I’ve become very close with the faculty especially my Drum-set Private Instructor and it’s been a truly amazing experience that I will never forget and will continue to grow from. I truly feel that I have found another place to call Thornton my home away from home.
