Success story Trevor Schmidt smiling.
All my favorite memories and highlights seem to focus on the great people that USD has in its community. Through great friendships, campus involvement, and leadership programs I have developed lifelong memories and friendships that I will cherish forever. For me, those activities include fraternity and campus leadership positions, USD sporting events, and spending time with close friends.
