USC Village is a very convenient and ideal place to live for USC students, and I recommend everyone explore what the Village offers.

The Village has many amenities. It has FedEx and Amazon lockers, so I could easily order and receive my packages. There is a Trader Joe’s and Target next to each other, which is where I often buy my groceries.

There are also three places in the Village where students would gather and line up to get these delicious foods, snacks, and drinks. First up on the list is Cafe Dulce! For those that need their daily dose of coffee or tea, look no further than Cafe Dulce! This is my favorite place at the Village as I enjoy their Matcha Latte drink and Roti bread.

Next up is CAVA. CAVA presents its meals in a customized way, as students can build their Mediterranean bowl and choose whatever ingredients they want to be included in their bowl. My go-to order is the Harissa Honey Chicken as the protein and Red Pepper Hummus as the spread!

Lastly, a relatively new store at USC Village is Insomnia Cookies. It sells delicious, sweet cookies, and the store opens until 1 a.m or 3 a.m. For those that stay up late at night, head to Insomnia Cookies to order a warm Deluxe S’mores cookie to satisfy your late-night cravings.

USC Village truly feels like a village. USC Village has a variety of amenities, from shipping/package services and grocery stores to cafes and restaurants!
