Traditions and new experiences

Throughout USC's campus, the Green Quad is often referred to as West Quad, its "formal" title. As a member of this community, we would like to encourage you to join our tradition of taking out that pesky "West," and calling it - you guessed it- Green Quad!

Green Quad is definitely more than just your typical residence hall. While living here, students have the opportunity to learn about green values and issues and to look at things through a greener lens. There's also the opportunity to become a member of Sustainable Carolina - the hub of all sustainability activities across all of USC’s campuses.

Our Community Education Team is comprised of faculty, staff, and students whose sole focus is the Green Quad Residence Hall and providing opportunities for residents to learn more about themselves, each other, and the environment.
