A South-Central Los Angeles man charged with attacking three USC students was sentenced Friday to two life terms, plus an additional 18 years and eight months in prison for assaulting three other women at a North Hollywood complex in 1988. Deon Proby, 20, was convicted in June in San Fernando Superior Court on seven felony counts--including robbery, kidnaping for robbery, and forced oral copulation--in connection with the attacks on the three North Hollywood women.

For the 11th year in a row, USC enrolled the most foreigners of any U.S. college or university in the 2011-12 school year as rising numbers of Chinese students pursued American education, according to a new study. UCLA was in sixth place nationally. USC hosted 9,269 foreign students, up about 7% from the year before, according to the annual report by the Institute of International Education, in partnership with the U.S. State Department. UCLA enrolled 6,703 last year, also up about 7%. Other schools in the top 10 were the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, New York University, Purdue University, Columbia University, Northeastern University, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Michigan State University and Ohio State University.

Two former USC students and a former employee in the university's records office are facing felony charges for their part in a grade-tampering scandal that implicated more than 40 students, the district attorney's office announced today. Two of the men have surrendered to authorities and the third is a fugitive, a spokesman said. News of the prosecutions was delayed because of the continuing search.

About 75 USC students are being treated in a campus outbreak of a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus. In an e-mail and text message sent early Saturday, school officials asked sick students to watch that evening's football game against the Oregon Ducks from home in order to contain the outbreak. They also advised students to avoid socializing and to drink plenty of fluids. The university's health clinic reported patients complaining of vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea.

I'd like to give credit to John Barnes and the rest of the UCLA Bruins, and my condolences to the Trojan players. Once again Larry Smith and his staff were out-coached, and the natural talents of the defense and Curtis Conway and Co. were unable to bail them out this time. So the USC students, faculty, alumni and fans had to endure another improbable loss in Smith's inconsistent tenure as head coach. We deserve better, President Sample: We've had enough mediocrity.

In a week when you thought you might have heard it all, I present to you Bill Walton speaking to USC students and bashing UCLA basketball. "I never knew they had pretty girls here at USC," began Walton, one of UCLA's all-time greats, after being introduced to a packed auditorium of sports business students. And for the next two hours he wouldn't shut up, entertaining, inspiring, opinionated, off the wall and dedicated to preserving the memory of John Wooden. It was all part of a bus tour to promote the Pac-12 Networks, Walton trumpeting an upcoming game in his own way. "What should be an absolute unbelievable game will be ruined by the style of the UCLA basketball team who loves to do nothing but call timeouts and run plays.

David Myers made reference (Sept. 7.) to the fact that on the first day back to class, the Promenade complex was quiet . . . you were not here after 9 p.m., when the USC students congregate around the pool area. The noise level, at times, is unbearable. You also have not been here after midnight when the parties begin. Secondly, as far as parking is concerned, valet parking is for guests, not tenants. There have been quite a few problems, which seem to have worsened since the students moved in. Unauthorized cars have been blocking tenants' cars . . . I was the victim today!
