Here is some important information about the 2010 Census from Virginia Jimenez who works for the US Census Bureau:

  1. USC’s Census tract currently has a very low response rate (~30%, compared to 64% nationwide). Since the Census determines funding for the local community and representation in Congress, it is essential that all USC students be counted.
  2. College students—including international students and other non-US citizens—should fill out and return a Census form based on where they live while at USC (i.e., not where their parents live). Students who live in the same apartment, house, etc., can fill out 1 form per unit.
  3. Students who live in on-campus housing will be counted this week (April 12-16). Resident Advisors will be working with Census Bureau officials to distribute and collect forms.
  4. Students and other residents who live in non-USC housing should have already received a survey. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A FORM, you can pick one up from Leavey Library, which has a Census Bureau representative near the circulation desk on Tu, Th and Sat from 2:00-6:00pm. Or you can call the Census Bureau at 1-866-872-6868 for additional info in English (see for other languages).

If you haven’t already returned your Census survey, please take a moment to do so. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s important!

Antonio Sacre is "The Storyteller" at Institute of Musical Arts

November 12, 2016 from 2pm to 4pm
We are so excited, and ready to laugh out loud, because Storyteller Antonio Sacre is returning to the IMA for the third year with his new show, “The Storyteller”. Born in Boston to a Cuban father and Irish-American mother, Antonio's hilarious stories are drawn from growing up bilingual and bicultural as a Cuban-Irish-American. With humor, (he calls himself a Leprechauno), he blends two cultures and four unbelievable stories into one compelling narrative about what it means to be paid to "lie"…See More
