Favorite thing about USC Annenberg: USC Annenberg is a great mix of students and scholars who are interested in a diverse array of research topics and bring together eclectic experiences, insights, and backgrounds. My fellow doctoral students and candidates are curious, innovative, and driven, and the Annenberg School is unyielding in its support of our many research endeavors, wherever they may take us.
