USC approves gender-neutral housing

first_imgUSC has officially announced their decision to offer gender neutral housing for students both on and off campus, effective fall 2015.Last spring, a group of students joined forces with the Queer and Ally Student Assembly and Undergraduate Student Government to pass a resolution proposing this idea, which was later approved by the university in August 2015.  The negotiation began in the fall of 2013 and has been led solely by students, especially those involved in the queer community.This spring, USC has offered a gender-neutral housing option on the online housing application.  Students who select this option will be placed in a pool with others who wish to live in  gender-neutral housing.Freshmen students who opt in will also have the option to choose from on or off campus housing.  Those who decide to live on campus will be placed in Arts and Humanities Residential College at Parkside. Students who choose to live off campus will be placed, along with transfer and continuing students who request gender-neutral housing, in Cardinal Gardens, the Rainbow Floor in Century Apartments or the Annenberg House.The idea for gender-neutral housing first started after a group of students from QuASA realized how this was a priority for the queer community. The decision to implement gender-neutral housing was heavily dependent on the strong network of LGBTQ students.Alyssa Coffey, director of QuASA, explained that previously, many students were forced to live off campus to accommodate their desire to live in a gender-neutral space.“A lot of students had to resort to living off campus because they were not comfortable with gender-exclusive housing, which was the only option USC offered until now,” Coffey said.Sarah Herald, co-president of the Transgender Advocacy Group, explained that she had to resort to non-USC housing because she and her friends could not find what they were looking for through USC housing.“Had gender-neutral housing existed in that time period when I was looking for housing, then that would have been very helpful to me,” Herald said. “And there are people I certainly know in this kind of predicament.”Gender-neutral housing hopes to alleviate this problem for students who are currently experiencing transitions with establishing their gender identity.“Gender-neutral housing is taking what exists in USC housing to accommodate students who are not comfortable in gender-                                                                                                                                          segregated housing,” Coffey said.Currently, students who would like to live in gender-neutral housing can apply to the Rainbow Floor or the LGBTQ floor in Century Apartments off campus.Coffey explained that residential assistants will be specially equipped to handle all matters surrounding gender-                                                                                                           neutral housing.“Resident assistants that will be placed in floors with these students will be specially selected,” Coffey said.  “They want to make sure that the RAs are able to handle the roommate arrangements and problems that come with gender-neutral housing.”However, this limited option proved to be difficult for those students if their roommates did not identify themselves as LGBTQ.“When we were considering USC housing for junior year, we did technically have an option,” Harold said. “But then my roommates who do not identify with LGBTQ would’ve been dragged there to live with me.”Herald explained how one of the main concerns when passing the resolution was whether or not they could garner enough interest.“It is very hard to target incoming students, and it might not be clear on the housing application,” Harold said.Kelby Harrison, the director of the LGBT Resource Center at USC, explained that the application has already been opened for returning students and that they have seen a significant number of people interested.“Having this resource available makes sure that the Trojan family actually includes all of us, and not a select group of people,” Coffey said.last_img read more

Women’s soccer upsets No. 8 North Carolina

first_imgThe Trojans took down No. 8 North Carolina in a dominant 3-0 victory on Sunday, setting an aggressive tone on offense from the first whistle.The team’s first shot came from redshirt junior Alex Anthony within the first minute of the game, and the pace didn’t slow from there. The team’s first goal came in the fifth minute, with senior Kayla Mills sending in a perfect arc on a corner kick for senior Morgan Andrews to bury in the back of the net.“We wanted to show them that we can fly on offense,” Anthony said. “Coming in, we wanted to prove that we can compete; we can set the pace of the game and really control it, and that’s what we did from the beginning.”That pace paid off again in the 29th minute, when junior Katie Johnson took a cross off her chest and smashed a shot into the left side of the netting. The Trojans had been controlling possession for most of the game, but the 2-0 lead made it clear that they were in control.Opportunities for the Tar Heels to counter only came in spurts in the first half, which was mostly spent in the Trojans’ attacking half of the field. The team kept North Carolina on its heels, flattening and spreading the defense to make any type of counterattack difficult to execute.“We’re an attacking team, and we wanted to come out here and prove that today,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said. “No matter what team we’re playing, this is the confidence and the energy we want to bring to the field.”But despite the success of the first half, the real challenge was maintaining that pressure for a full 90 minutes. The second half was much more balanced for both teams, with the Tar Heels spending more time in the USC goal box, and reshirt senior goalie Sammy Jo Prudhomme wrapping up a few more saves.But the Trojans didn’t back down throughout the half, continuing to pressure and force opportunities in the box. Anthony punctuated that pace by slamming home a shot from several feet outside the goal box in the 65th minute, marking the first time in five years that North Carolina allowed three goals in a game. The frontline continued to attack until the final whistle blew, giving the team one of their biggest victories of the year.There are few teams in women’s soccer with as dominant and storied of a history as North Carolina. With 22 national championships since the tournament began in 1982, the Tar Heels have produced dozens of Olympic champions over the last four decades, including Mia Hamm and Heather O’Reilly. Year in and year out, the team is expected to provide some of the heaviest competition in the NCAA.The enormity of the victory and the dominance with which the team played was not lost on Anthony or her players.“This is a high-caliber team, and anyone who plays them knows that,” Anthony said. “I think what we did today, not only with getting the win, but in how we played, how we attacked. I think that’s really going to do a lot for our confidence and the way we play together as a team moving forward.”The victory is also the fifth straight shutout for the backline. The defense only defended 10 shots and three corner kicks throughout the game, with Prudhomme only needing to wrap up four saves.Though it was a dominant win for the team, the match wasn’t without its frustrations. The Trojans missed two penalty kicks, with one blocked and the other waved off when sophomore Leah Pruitt tried to knock in her own rebounded shot. But McAlpine believed that the cohesive style of play that his team maintained for the full game was one of the best performances he has seen this season.“Today was fantastic,” McAlpine said. “I think the team decided as a whole they weren’t the biggest fans of losing those first two games. We came out here today and played our game. That’s right where we want to be, for this game and for every game this season.”last_img read more
