Life at USC

Independence Day Party!


Red, white and blue and fireworks for as far as your eyes can see! The USC International Accelerator Program team celebrated Independence Day in true American fashion — by eating barbecue and enjoying outdoor activities!

But wait, for those who may not remember, what exactly is Independence Day? On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England and formed the United States of America. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate this event! Most Americans celebrate the holiday by spending time with friends or family. It is most common to share food (hot dogs, hamburgers and other American favorites!), enjoy time outside and watch fireworks.


Take a look at the pictures below to see how our USC International Accelerator Program students celebrated the holiday!


It was a party filled with red, white and blue!


Barbecue pulled pork, fried chicken, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, green beans and cookies! Now that’s how you celebrate Independence Day!


Our most patriotic student, Humaid!

As tradition stands, it wouldn’t be a true Independence Day celebration if we didn’t spend time outside! The USC IAP students got a lesson in playing bocce out on the Historic Horseshoe! Bocce is a ball sport that can be played with as few as two people or as many as eight! How exactly do you play? Check out this video to see for yourself!

Scoring bocce isn’t as easy as it seems….


Happy Fourth of July from the USC International Accelerator Program team! We hope you all had a chance to enjoy some traditional American Independence Day activities!
