My Graduate Student Life at Price – by Kuaikuai Wei, MPA ’16

Posted on by Derek Robinson

When I first came to US last year, everything was new and fresh to me. I was very nervous about my life at USC. Could I get along well with my new friends?

You’ll be fine.” Throughout my first year in USC I kept thinking positively and tried new things to learn about myself and explore US. I value my experience here and want to share it with prospective graduate students….

From the valuable relationships and bonds forged, to the rich externship and internship experiences; Price continues to elevate my thinking and challenges me personally to create innovative solutions to complex societal issues.

Price Students Outside of the classroom

How many policy university students get to say that they have the option to participate in policy creation programs and active community research and to top it all off, get the feedback of Governor and Professor Arnold Schwarzenegger? Not many that’s for sure. Continue reading

Utilizing LA as your classroom & Interning in Washington, D.C.

Posted on by coreycha

Welcome to USC and the Sol Price School for Public Policy. As a junior looking back on my three semesters in the school I can safely say transferring into Price was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

Today, I’ve dived into an interdisciplinary education learning about public policy, theories of urban planning, and the value of place-making as an extension of civic society. Continue reading
