‘Day in the Life’ of USC MPH Student | Crystal Lopez

View all blog posts under Videos




My name is Crystal Lopez, and I am on the Health Service and Policy concentration.  I am from Murrieta, California. I actually got my bachelor’s in public health, but I felt that I needed more experience, and I needed a higher education in learning and in public health.

I always knew that I wanted to get my Masters in Public Health, and I found the perfect place to do that. So the fact that the program is online, it automatically caters to people that are working full time and that have busy lives. So for me, it was very flexible. To be able to say I graduated from USC  is just so surreal. The name itself carries so much weight, but the fact that I completed a program here, and completed it successfully, cum laude, you know, to me, it’s just, I never thought it would be possible. I’m so excited to say that I’m a Trojan.
