As USC continues its ascent in the world of higher education, more students are competing for the same number of coveted spots. This year’s admission rate, 17.8 percent, is the lowest in USC’s 134-year history.In the past several years, freshman admission has become far more selective. Last year, USC admitted 19.7 percent of applicants, the lowest at that time. Timothy Brunold, USC’s dean of admission, called the class of 2018 the most accomplished group of first-year students in university history.“Our admission committee enjoyed getting to know the largest, most interesting group of students it has ever had the privilege of reading,” Brunold said in a press release. “USC’s distinctive academic programs, incredible diversity, vibrant campus life, global perspective and location in the heart of Los Angeles make it a very attractive option for the best and brightest students, not just from across the U.S., but from around the world.”This fall, USC received more than 51,800 applications from high school seniors competing for an estimated 2,750 places in this fall’s entering class. The university admitted 9,225 students hailing from all 50 U.S. states and 80 other countries.This year, 26 percent of incoming freshman will study in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. The Marshall School of Business and USC’s arts schools (Architecture, Cinematic Arts, Dramatic Arts, Roski School of Fine Arts and Thornton School of Music) will host 21 and 14 percent of the incoming freshman, respectively.Several incoming freshmen echoed Brunold’s statements, citing USC’s variety of strengths as their reason for enrolling. Joy Ofodu, an incoming freshman majoring in communication, said that USC offers a comprehensive experience for students.“Prospective students and families are quickly realizing that USC is the total package: career preparation, a thriving social scene, excellent athletics, incredible faculty, gorgeous campus, good food and amazing alumni networking,” Ofodu said. “There are now Trojans planted in every area of the world, and all of them are proudly talking up the university.”Exposure from college ranking websites such as US News and World Report might play a part in drawing more applicants, along with other extensive recruiting measures.“I believe [USC] has good marketing strategies that highlight the academics, sports, Trojan family and other opportunities,” said Natalie MacKraz, an incoming freshman majoring in computer science. “The explanations of the advantages of the Trojan family are especially appealing.”This year, the admissions committee organized more than 50 on- and off-campus events such as SCend Offs, receptions for incoming students and families. These human connections are what resonated with Zachary Guo, an incoming freshman majoring in computer science (games), when he was considering which college to attend.“The most effective recruiting tactic for me was staying with a current student at Explore USC,” Guo said. “Being able to ask [my host] all the questions related to my major and life at USC.”This year’s group of incoming students is also more ethnically diverse than in years past. Overall, 21 percent of the class of 2018 includes students from under represented minority populations, and 13 percent of students will be the first in their family to attend college. According to an annual report released by the Institute of International Education, USC has enrolled more international students than any other American college or university.John Lazzeroni Jr., an incoming freshman double majoring in electrical engineering and choral music, thinks USC’s diverse student body is one of the university’s biggest assets.“Everyone comes from a different place and the cultural diversity is outstanding,” said Lazzeroni, who is attending on an NROTC scholarship. “USC has a phenomenal reputation internationally, and I see people ‘fighting on’ everywhere. Nationally it is highly esteemed in many programs, especially the Thornton School of Music, and locally I get a lot of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahs’ when I say I am going.”

14-inch, 1920 x 1080, 250 nits Starting Price$729$749 Author Bio Lenovo’s ThinkPads are some of the best business laptops, but their high price is tough to overlook. Enter ThinkBook, a new line of laptops designed for small businesses and privacy-conscious consumers on a budget.The ThinkBook 13s and ThinkBook 14s will be available in late May. The 13-inch version will start at $729 while the 14-inch model will cost a bit more, at $749. One reason to buy a ThinkBook over an IdeaPad is for Lenovo’s enterprise-level support, which includes optional upgrades for next-day onsite repairs and an extended 5-year warranty.

For storage, you can choose a 128GB SSD on the base model or go up to 512GB of space. Equipped with a mid-range AMD Radeon 540X GPU, the ThinkBook 13s and 14s should be able to run graphics intensive programs and even some games at low-to-medium settings.MORE: Best Lenovo LaptopsThe ThinkBook 13s has a 13.3-inch, 1080p anti-glare display with up to 300 nits of brightness, while the ThinkBook 14s has a 14-inch, 1080p anti-glare display that tops out at 250 nits.The ThinkBook 13s and ThinkBook 14s serve as a middle ground between Lenovo’s consumer IdeaPads and the flagship ThinkPad line. As such, this duo comes with several familiar features from Lenovo’s business and mainstream laptops, including an edge-to-edge display and a webcam cover.Aesthetically, the ThinkBook 13s and 14s are more similar to Lenovo’s midrange IdeaPad laptops than the black carbon fiber ThinkPads (although a metal ThinkPad is on the way).Both are made of anodized aluminum for durability (though they lack MIL-STD certification) and flaunt a slim chassis that reminded me a lot of the IdeaPad 530s. While they won’t stand out among all the other silver laptops on the market, the ThinkBook 13s’ and ThinkBook 14s’ nondescript chassis are perfectly suited for office use.If there’s one standout design feature, it’s the ThinkBook 13s and 14s’ thin bezels, which result in a screen-to-body ratio of 80%. This keeps the size of the laptops to a minimum so you can slip them into your bag when you’re traveling.The ThinkBook 13s weighs 3.1 pounds and is 0.6 inches thick while the ThinkPad 14s weighs 3.3 pounds is about as slim. And with an estimated 11 hours of battery life on the 13-inch version and 10 hours on the 14-inch version, you can get plenty of work done on those undersized airplane trays during a lengthy international flight.Port selection on both of these laptops is good, but they lack a Thunderbolt 3 port for fast transfer speeds and connecting to multiple 4K monitors. Both models have a USB-C port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI and a headphone/mic jack. Along with a webcam cover, these laptops offer small businesses plenty of crucial security features, including a fingerprint reader for fast and secure login, along with a TMP 2.0 chip.So far, the ThinkBook 13s and 14s are shaping up to be a compelling pair of affordable business laptops. We’ll see how they hold up when we receive review units later this year.
