Hockey News Hockey World Cup 2018: India beat Canada 5-1 to reach quarterfinals

first_imgNew Delhi: In a one-sided clash, India beat Canada 5-1 to qualify for quarterfinals of hockey World Cup 2018 at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Saturday. India topped the Pool C with 7 points. India’s Lalit Upadhyay scored a twice, while Harmanpreet Singh, Chinglensana Singh and Amit Rohidas scored a goal each. India’s first goal came from the stick of Harmanpreet Singh who scored in the 12th minute through a penalty corner. But after the opening goal, the second quarter went goalless as both teams failed to breach opposition’s defence. In the third quarter, Floris van Son scored the equaliser for Canada. In the final quarter, India scored four goals in quick succession to take the game away from Canada.India scored four goals in the fourth quarter through Chinglensana Singh (46th minute), Lalit Upadhyay (47th, 57th) and Amit Rohidas (51st). By virtue of this win, India finished on top of Pool C with seven points ahead of world no.3 Belgium on account of better goal difference. Belgium, too on seven points, finished second ahead of third placed Canada after thrashing South Africa 5-1 in the other Pool C game earlier in the day.South Africa crashed out of the tournament. While India qualified directly for the quarterfinals by being the toppers, Belgium and Canada will play in the cross-overs for a place in the last-eight round. Canada too overcame South Africa by virtue of a better goal difference. Both the teams finished their pool engagements with one point apiece. India will play their quarterfinal match on December 13. Earlier in the day, Olympic silver medallist Belgium outclassed South Africa 5-1 in their last pool game. Alexander Hendrickx (14th, 22nd minutes) scored a brace while Simon Gougnard (18th), Loick Luypaert (30th) and Cedric Charlier (48th) were the other goal-scorer for Belgium. South Africa, on the other hand, had stunned the world no.3 side just 36 seconds from the start through Nicholas Spooner’s field strike. The match between India and Canada was touted to be a battle between attack and defence and it panned out exactly the same as the hosts attacked in numbers from the onset to create quite a few scoring chances. India’s first scoring chance came in the ninth minute when skipper Manpreet Singh’s cross from the left flank was met by Dilpreet Singh in the near post but the Canadian goalkeeper Antoni Kindler positioned himself at the right spot to thwart the danger. In the next minute, India got their first penalty corner but Canada defended stoutly. Mandeep Singh was then denied by a good reflex save by the Canada keeper. Canada goalkeeper Kindler came to his side’s rescue twice in the second quarter to keep the scoreline under check. First Kindler saved Sumit’s reverse shot from top of the box in the 22nd minute and then kept away Akashdeep Singh’s attempt after he was set up by Simranjeet Singh’s burst from 25 yards. The script, however, changed a little bit after the change of ends with Canada slowly clawing back into the match with some impressive counter-attacks.

Football News Karim Benzema helps Real Madrid avoid embarrassment against bottom-ranked Huesca in La Liga

first_img Madrid: Karim Benzema stopped Real Madrid’s underwhelming La Liga season going from bad to worse on Sunday after firing a last-minute winner to hand the European champions a barely-deserved 3-2 winner over bottom club Huesca. Humbled by Ajax in the Champions League and dumped out of the Copa Del Rey by deadly rivals Barca, third-placed Real showed little signs of improvement in Zinedine Zidane’s second game in charge but Benzema, subject to rumours he may leave Madrid in the summer for Manchester United, struck with a fine curling finish the to snatch the three points at a sparsely populated Santiago Bernabeu. “We are happy with him and I am going to count on him, now there are nine games left and then we will see what happens. He is a Real Madrid player and I don’t think this will change,” Zidane said. “You have to accept it. If the people want to come to the Bernabeu to see us so much the better, but I understand that since we are not going to win anything fewer people come.”  highlights Real Madrid are two points behind Atletico Madrid in La Liga.Huesca are the bottom-ranked team in the La Liga.Atletico Madrid hammered Alaves 4-0. Real move to within two points of second-placed Atletico Madrid, who hammered Champions League hopefuls Alaves 4-0 on Saturday in a match that saw Diego Costa score for the first time since November. However, Real still lag 12 points behind leaders Barcelona, who are 10 clear of Atletico and heavy favourites to retain their La Liga after Lionel Messi fired them to their sixth league win on the bounce, 2-0 at home to local rivals Espanyol on Saturday, with a brace that took the Argentine to 31 league goals this season. Zidane’s son Luca was given his second ever start between the sticks for Real but got off to the worst possible start, picking the ball out of his own net within three minutes after Cucho Hernandez lashed home Ezequiel Avila low cross. Isco levelled the scores in the 25th minute when he tapped home a Brahim Diaz cross after Benzema’s low shot was well saved, but it was the away side — playing their first ever La Liga game at the Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium — who went closer going into the break ahead. Zidane junior had to be alert to stop Damian Musto from glancing home a header nine minutes before the break, while Avila punched the ground in frustration in first half stoppage time after flashing a power shot over from the edge of the box. Heartbroken Huesca Real continued to disappoint in the second half but took the lead just after the hour mark thanks to Dani Ceballos, who bundled home the second after Gareth Bale’s beautiful cross was headed back across goal by Benzema. Bale then missed a glorious opportunity to put the game beyond Huesca when he somehow put Alvaro Odriozola’s low cross over the bar from just yards out. Huesca pounced on that awful miss to draw level when Xabier Etxeita powered home Moi Gomez’s cross from a short corner. However, Benzema was on hand to break Huesca hearts with his 14th league goal of the season, which gives Zidane two wins from his first two matches back in charge. Earlier Valencia maintained their hopes of a place in next season’s Champions League after Daniel Parejo’s penalty on the stroke of half-time gave them a vital 1-0 victory at Sevilla. Parejo’s spot-kick, which came after Ever Banega brought down Jose Gaya, extended Valencia’s unbeaten run to nine matches and moves them up to sixth, level on 43 points with Sevilla and just three back from the final Champions League spot.That place is occupied by Getafe, who fell 2-0 at home to mid-table Leganes on Saturday and have to play the league’s top three and Sevilla in their final nine games.Despite a slightly simpler league fixture list Marcelino’s Valencia however have an all-Spanish Europa League quarter-final tie with Villarreal to contend with, as well as the Copa Del Rey final against Barcelona between now and the end of the season.

Rutherford snatches six for 32 to rock Volcanoes for 151

First, he put on 36 for the fourth wicket with former Test batsman Kirk Edwards, who made 24, before adding a further 44 for the fifth wicket with wicketkeeker Gian Benjamin (24).Edwards, who faced 47 balls and struck one four, became Rutherford’s first victim when he was bowled in the fourth over before lunch, as Volcanoes went to the interval on 88 for four.Unbeaten on 26 at the break, Hodge carried the fight for his side afterwards in an innings lasting 61 deliveries and including five fours and a six.When he fell inside the first hour after lunch, caught at the wicket off left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, Benjamin added 22 for the fifth wicket with Shane Shillingford (6) before the innings went into decline as Rutherford grabbed the last five wickets to fall for just 21 runs.In reply, Jaguars plunged to 22 for three as Lewis grabbed two early wickets to leave the three-time reigning champions in disarray.However, Hemraj combined with Vishaul in a 66-run stand to stabilise the innings and deny Volcanoes any further immediate success.Hemraj faced 69 balls and counted five fours and a six while fellow left-hander Vishaul has notched three boundaries in a patient 74-ball knock.Off-spinner Shillingford accounted for Hemraj deep in the final session but Anthony Bramble, unbeaten on 13 not out, helped Vishaul steer Jaguars safely to the close.

Sweep for UW in 1st round

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald photoIn the eyes of the Wisconsin women?s hockey team, its record isn?t 26-7-3; it?s 2-0.?We call it the second season,? goaltender Jessie Vetter said. ?In the second season everyone has an open record, no one has a win yet, and it is just a good atmosphere to play in. During the playoffs everyone gets a fresh start.?UW started off the second season with a dominating sweep of Minnesota State, winning its games 4-2 and 5-0 and advancing to the Final Faceoff of the WCHA playoffs.On Saturday, Minnesota State ? trying to extend their season at least one more game ? came out with a lot of energy and played UW evenly early in the first period. The Badgers, however, withstood the onslaught and countered when freshman Hilary Knight found the back of the net 10:42 into the first period to put UW up 1-0. The goal was Knight?s 19th of the season.?It started when they were trying to break it out, and I caught them a man down,? Knight said. ?I just went right around the ?D?, and put the puck underneath her stick; I shot it five-hole, and it ended up going in.?The Mavericks, far from out of it yet, nearly tied the game early in the second period. Minnesota State?s Christina Lee had just jumped out of the penalty box when she found herself with the puck and only the goalie to beat, due to a sloppy pass from the Badgers. Lee brought the puck down, faked right and tried a backhand shot, but Vetter was there to make the save.A few minutes later, sophomore Meghan Duggan put the Badgers ahead 2-0 and captured all of the momentum in the game. Duggan received a pass from senior Jinelle Zaugg behind the Mavericks? net and shot it off a defender?s skate to tie Knight with 19 goals on the year.Five minutes later, Duggan found the back of the net again and took over the team lead with 20goals of the season. Freshmen Malee Windmeier and Kelly Nash were credited with assists on the play.?I think the second half of the season the team starts going,? Duggan said. ?Lines start clicking, we are starting to feel each other more and the chemistry is good, which means the puck is moving well and the team is coming together, which has helped with my [individual] success.?Duggan, who has been on a tear lately ? recording 24 points in her last 14 games ? was even more impressive because she was playing out of position.?I haven?t played center since I was a senior in high school,? Duggan said. ?I haven?t taken faceoffs game after game in a while, but you have to make adjustments and that was what coach thought was best, to move things around. Obviously, it was difficult because I haven?t practiced taking faceoffs in a while, but you get used to it.?UW opened the game up in the third period, as Nash and junior Angie Keseley both recorded goals to make the final score 5-0.Vetter saved all 16 shots she faced and recorded her 10th shutout of the season.The game did not end friendly, however, when Minnesota State senior Amanda Stohr was ejected for cross-checking and game misconduct with 2:22 left in the game.?You have a senior that is playing in her final game and kids get frustrated and do things,? UW head coach Mark Johnson said. ?Compliment the referee for making the right call.?On Friday, Duggan, junior Tia Hanson and Knight all found the back of the net before the third period started to give UW a 3-0 lead heading into the final stanza.UW let their guard down a bit, though, and MSU scored two goals in the first three minutes of the third period to make the score 3-2.?We weren?t doing a very good job of protecting the puck in certain areas,? Johnson said. ?The end result is we are turning the puck over in spaces and areas that you don?t want to turn it over, and they capitalized on it. We were making mistakes that we shouldn?t be with a 3-0 lead.?The Badgers regained their composure, though, and Zaugg notched her 17th goal of the season 8:04 into the period to push the lead to 4-2.last_img read more

Originally from San Clemente, California, I’m majoring in print and digital journalism with a double minor in business finance and accounting and aspire to one day make the leap into the sports representation industry. Ever since stepping onto USC’s campus two years ago as a spring admit freshman, I have gotten involved in many different facets of the school, including Undergraduate Student Government, serving as the assistant director of Wellness Affairs, where I have worked on projects such as Revamp Lyon.  I am currently the sports editor of the Daily Trojan, where you can read my weekly column, “Persian Persuasion.” Within the Greek community, I sit on the executive board of my fraternity, Phi Gamma Delta, better known as FIJI, and am also the IFC Director of Safety and Risk Management. You can also catch me on Trojan’s Vision’s weekly sports talk show, The Water Cooler. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with the USC community and the rest of the Trojan family in order to take this university to new heights! Improvements to the amount of parking.Campus lounge open to all students and commuters complete with appliances to heat up/store their lunch, TVs, and lockers to store personal belongings.Increase in bike racks.Bulk LaoBulk Lao — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI was born in a Christian refugee camp in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. My parents were refugees from the Vietnam War, and we started in the United States with nothing. My family didn’t know what success was, and we struggled for a long time. I finally found myself here at USC, where many windows of opportunities are available to me. I am a rare spring admit. I was encouraged and supported by many wonderful administrators and faculty at my former junior college, East Los Angeles College. I wanted to do more for the entire campus so I moved on to student government and became a part of the Associated Student Union Family. I served as the vice president of finance where I revived the Lunar New Year Festival running alongside our Covered California Sign-up Campaign. The event provided the community with joy, happiness and good health. Students enjoyed the lion dance show and got started in the process of being medically covered. As of today, I am pursuing an undergraduate degree in business administration with a focus in accounting and management in the Marshall School of Business. I am currently working as a program assistant for ELAC Outreach, as well as a teacher’s assistant for the Joint Educational Project linking students with information and resources in their pursuit of student success. I am so grateful for all the opportunities that have been provided to me, and I want to pay it forward as your next commuter senator. I know that by working together and pooling our community resources together there is nothing that we cannot achieve together. We should feel empowered and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us. To utilize USG to fund events that create long lasting enjoyable memorable experiences.To enhance students’ learning by enabling them to practice skills and test classroom knowledge through related service experiences and activities in the local community.To recruit and assist faculty who are willing to include a service option their courses.To assist service learners to make connections between their community experiences and the larger world, focusing especially on social justice issues.To provide student staff with diverse and rich employment and leadership experiences.Jacob EllenhornJacob Ellenhorn — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanBorn and raised in Beverly Hills, CaIifornia, it has always been a dream of mine to attend USC. I have always believed strongly in getting involved and getting my hands dirty. When I came here I became very strongly involved in on-campus activities, especially with the College Republicans. I feel that too many candidates come to USG with the hopes of “changing the campus.” I am not running to change the campus, but to give a voice to my fellow commuters and conservative minded students. I feel that there needs to be someone on the body that will stand for common sense principles. As a senator, I will reject any and all proposed fee hikes. I believe that USG has been able to prosper on smaller budgets, and I believe it should. Resolutions to award $2,500 to groups for bike powered performance stages, and resolutions to fund giant inflatable vaginas are simply wasteful and unnecessary. As a senator, I will stand against such wasteful and extravagant budget allocations. Furthermore, I will promise to vote against any and all bills that attempt to boycott, divest from or put sanctions on the Jewish state of Israel. I believe that our student government has no business taking a stand against democratic countries, and I will not tolerate any attempt to do so. As commuter senator, I also hope to improve parking on campus. I believe that if you pay for a parking spot in a certain lot you should be guaranteed that spot in that lot, no matter what. I find it particularly unfair when USC hosts special events on campus and entire parking lots become full. Students who park in these lots are never notified about these events and are then forced to drive aimlessly around campus to find a spot in another lot. Parking spots, if paid for, should be guaranteed. If there was one thing I would change about USC, it would be to make the university a friendlier place for diversity of thought. As a campus, we place importance on diversity of race, but I think that it is equally important to think about diversity of thought. All too often I feel that students who think differently than their professors are too scared to speak up for what they believe in. Efforts to impose comfortable speech on campus only restrict the speech of other students with different opinions. Eliminate the disconnect between the Greek community and other student groups on campus.Redefine the culture and perception of recreation and fitness by creating an all-inclusive space for students of diverse backgrounds.Ensure a more positive perception for Greeks by improving public relations and enhancing transparency.Work with Greek community and administrators to create flexibility in social policy by implementing risk management protocol.Boost overall wellness by increasing healthy food options and improving Row Wi-Fi. Increase late night dining options for students on campus.Promote student involvement and influence through better funding for student organizations.Support community involvement through more frequent service events and involvement fairs.Create more resources to support the transition into USC for Spring admits, international students and transfer students.Expand dining options to include healthier, vegan-friendly food.Create a space for science and engineering students that emulates the academic support and homework help the writing and math centers provide.Eric Dubbury & Giuseppe RobalinoEric Dubbury — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanDubbury: During my junior year of high school in Seattle, Washington, I discovered a video of the Trojan Marching Band performing their pregame show at the 2005 National Championship. During the time this video played on my computer screen, I got goose bumps. The pride, prestige, and legacy of the University of Southern California shone through. Now I am fortunate to be part of this tradition. I am majoring in music industry and triple minoring in finance, entrepreneurship, and jazz studies. I am also involved in a multitude of campus organizations and clubs. USC and the student body has been here for me every step of the way.  As residential senator, my goal is to be there for you every step of the way. I have put myself into numerous diverse leadership positions over the past 3 years, whether academic, extracurricular, artistic, or professional. My goal is to help you overcome your challenges while at USC, and make this university a place where every single student ascends towards their ambitions. We are a family after all, the Trojan Family. Let us rise together this coming school year. Fight on!Giuseppe Robalino — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanRobalino: I am a junior at the USC Marshall School of Business concentrating in finance. My educational background includes studying politics at Harvard University’s Summer School Program and lately, risk management at the London School of Economics. I have an extensive background in finance, having interned for a private wealth manager and a hedge fund. I am also a contributor for an international investing and financial news site. My leadership roles involve having led a major Orange County political youth group and participating as a repeat guest panelist for the USC Unruh Institute of Politics. Early in my college career, I served as USG Delegate and currently am a member of the USC Student Alumni Society. Eric and I share synergies, so we are running as a team. To this team, I bring my personal pledge to improve the academic environment at USC — reforming the course selection process and further bolstering our educational excellence.

I currently serve as a delegate on Diversity Affairs and an Assistant Director of Communication on the Black House project. I am also a part of the Student Coalition Against Labor Exploitation and have a passion for social justice. I serve as a corps member for Jumpstart, teaching language and literacy at a nearby preschool, and tutor for the Upward Bound program. Through these various positions and organizations, I have learned to lead effectively and have developed a good work ethic. I look forward to continuing to serve USC and the community in the upcoming years! Increase risk management on the row through a student-run outside organization in order to eventually lift some social restrictions that have been placed on the row.Create a stronger “Trojan Family” on The Row by reaching out to alumni to establish scholarship and internship opportunities for Greek students.Improve lighting along The Row and along University Avenue so students feel safe when going home.Improve the fraternity rush process to help prospective fraternity members look at more than two or three houses in order to make an informed decision on the brotherhood that they would like to be a part of.Make the Campus Cruiser/USC Uber cars more prevalent on crowded nights as well as increase the hours and days that the Uber service can run.Chris FongChris Fong — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI have been involved with Greek life since my freshman year, and consider joining a fraternity to be one of the best decisions I made in college. I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where fraternities and sororities are uncommon, and the notion of Greek life is tainted by its depiction in movies. It was not until I joined a fraternity myself that I discovered the value of a small community within a larger university setting. As treasurer of Phi Psi, I have learned to work with my peers on divisive issues and handle them in a sensitive and respectful way. Getting involved in one’s house is a great way to create lasting friendships and develop professional skills. These overlooked qualities of Greek life are what inspire me to represent the Greek contingent on campus. I want to ensure fraternities and sororities continue to be a constructive experience for USC students. However, houses can only maintain these qualities if students feel safe, comfortable and included in activities. As senator, I will work to create this type of environment so all USC students have the opportunity to enjoy the Greek experience. Support efforts to improve Wi-Fi speed and connectivity, especially during finals.Support current plans to expand housing opportunities for spring admits and expand the welcome days for Spring Admits.Support the work fighting against sexual assault.Support increasing the number of bike racks around campus, especially near Leavey.Expansion of healthy and affordable food options around the campus center and the campus.Support a speedy implementation of gender neutral housing and expansion of gender neutral bathrooms.Support efforts by ESA and EAO to increase environmental awareness and sustainability around campus.Support upgrades for the Lyon Center.Dan LiDan Li — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI was born in Huhehot, Inner Mongol and grew up in Beijing, China. To pursue a world-class education, I came to the Golden State to attend an American high school and take part in a host family program. From a timid boy that barely spoke any English and knew nobody in this country, I graduated from my high school as the most likely to brighten your day by my peers and won Mr. Oaks Christian High School with a comedy routine.  Going to new places and doing things that challenge the status quo is my second nature. I have always wanted to make USC a truly international institution, where any international student here is not just a number, but a person with adequate representation. Unfortunately, international students are underrepresented in student government and many other leadership positions. I want to work with both administration and students to close the representational gap for international students. My passion for improving USC goes beyond international students. I was a delegate on university affairs my freshman year and a senator aide this year. Both USG positions taught me how to work with administrations and other students to achieve our goals. As an RA, I also want to enhance students’ residential experiences by providing more dining options. Aaron RifkindAaron Rifkind — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI am a third-generation Trojan majoring in international relations. I currently serve as the senior advisor to the USG president on the executive cabinet of USG. I am also the editor in chief for the Southern California International Review, a global undergraduate international studies journal published biannually. As a member of USG for three years, I know the power USG Senate holds over creating legislation that impacts all undergraduates at USC. I want to represent the residential student constituency and work with students to enhance USC as a thriving diverse university. Increase the accessibility and awareness of USG student resources, in part by reinvigorating the use of USG’s website and all its digital media promotions.Visit building governments and clubs to provide updates and get new ideas straight from students. Provide updates via the Daily Trojan and create a Facebook page where our constituents can share concerns.Empower BGs, granting them greater freedom in managing their own money. Forge stronger relations with alumni and the Board of Trustees to bring creative, new programs/activities on campus.Work with administration to find the most cost effective solutions to issues inside USG and campus-wide.Provide incoming freshman classes with more resources and information that will help them acclimate to their new environment.Open avenues in web registration for students to communicate with professors, see course/faculty descriptions, and access 24/7 online site help.Create a one-stop shop where students can see all exam dates, professor grading scales/weights, and professors’ teaching philosophy and methodology.Push to establish a committee of students and administrators to implement changes that span beyond online course evaluations.Work with administration to help continue improving the quality of on-campus dining facilities.Revise some USG codes and documents to express them in more clear and accurate ways. Cassie AguayoCassie Aguayo — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanMy name is Cassie Aguayo and I commute to USC from Long Beach, California. Last semester was my first semester here at USC after transferring from Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa. Recently, I switched my major to international relations, and I am now working towards declaring a minor in business entrepreneurship. Before I started my college education, I was a tutor for elementary school kids in math and language arts. Now, I help out with my father’s small family business with my siblings doing secretarial work. Working alongside my tight-knit family has taught me the vitality of cooperation and teamwork, which I feel I can put into use as a part of the Undergraduate Student Government. Being a commuter, I strive to make my time on campus valuable, which is why I am especially passionate about taking on the responsibilities being a commuter senator would entail. Although I am often immersed in my schoolwork during the semester, I enjoy leisurely reading, hiking and spending time with close family and friends. I also like to hangout at local coffee shops and concerts in the greater Los Angeles area. Sanjay MahboobaniSanjay Mahboobani — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI am currently a freshman majoring in economics from Redondo Beach California. I am the Birnkrant Vice President, as well as a delegate in USG University Affairs. I am also a member of Phi Delta Theta. In high school, I was the sophomore and junior class president of a class with 600 students. As a senior, I was the student body president at a school with over 2,500 students. I believe that my leadership experience will help me succeed in the role of Greek senator at such a young age. I plan to use my experience to help collaborate with my peers as well has act on certain initiatives to make sure that I leave the Greek Row better than when I found it. Expand vegetarian and kosher options at the dining halls and Seeds.Expand dining hall hours and improve weekend hours in the Campus Center.Work with ITS to expand USC Secure Wireless capability.Expand the amount of money student organizations receive per semester from USG.Work with the USG president to implement another break during the fall semester.Decrease facilities expenses for student organizations (Campus Center, Town and Gown, Bovard, etc.) and improve scheduling accessibility and timing.Continue improving Lyon Center equipment and funding.Alec WhiteAlec White — Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanI am a junior studying political science from the Bay Area. I joined USC as a spring admit in January of 2013 and I have felt at home ever since. Since then, I have served as the President of the USC College Democrats and as an E-Board member for QUASA (Queer and Ally Student Assembly). As President of the USC College Democrats, I have worked to increase political awareness across campus. I also have coordinated events such as bringing anti-sexual assault advocate, Sandra Fluke to USC while coordinating with WSA and PSA. At the same time, I value bipartisanship and I have reached across the aisle to coordinate events with the College Republicans. On QUASA’s Eboard, I have increased the welcome back program for spring admits and transfers. Through these positions, I have experience working with diverse groups across campus. I am honored to ask for your vote for Residential Senate for 2015 so we can work for a stronger USC!
