 Alexa Layne

Graduate Residential College Coordinator

My name is Alexa and I am the GRCC for New North Residential College. I recently graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Humanities and here at USC I am in my first year in the Rossier School of Education’s Postsecondary Administration and Student Affairs master’s program. Reading is one of my favorite things to do when I get lucky enough to have some free time, so I seem to always be in the middle of a book or on my way to get a new one. If I’m not reading then I’m probably on the hunt for my next favorite coffee shop or outside soaking up the sun. I’m also a huge dessert fan and new to the LA area, so I’ll probably be exploring all the trendy food items LA has to offer as well!
