On Thursday, May 12, USC students got a taste of immortality when their names were added to the Wall of Scholars in Leavey Library. Created in 1994 by the Skull and Dagger Society, the wall honors students who have been awarded a national or international scholarship, or who have received certain USC awards and scholarships. Neil Armstrong (above, left) stands in front of the wall with salutatorian Brent Nash, valedictorian Katherine Trefz and President Steven B. Sample.
