Somerville Place


Somerville Place named after John and Vada Somerville, graduates of the USC School of Dentistry, is a special interest community focused on uplifting and exploring identities within African-American culture and the larger global diaspora. By promoting intellectual development, providing opportunities for leadership and connecting to a legacy of scholars, Somerville Place has aided in the successful transition of Black students into the USC community for over 20 years. South Residential College (Pardee Tower) holds our first year experience. Century Apartments hold our second year experience that focuses on the identity as well as intersectionality.
