    Trojan YALers took to Trousdale Parkway — the main campus thoroughfare at the University of Southern California — to spread the message of economic freedom in late February.

The giant Jenga blocks were more than enough to attract people to our table, at and at times we wouldn’t even need to say anything—passersby would simply be interested enough to approach us.
