Chemical Engineering, Class of 2022

Palos Verdes, California 


Hello everyone! My name is Alex and I’m a freshman from Palos Verdes, California studying chemical engineering with an emphasis in sustainable energy. On campus I have been involved in the Residential Housing Association (RHA)  as the eco rep for Parkside Residential Community my freshman year and the Wrigley Institute Ambassadors, a group dedicated to bringing awareness about sustainability on USC’s campus. Additionally I am a USC Spirit Leader!  If I’m not on the sideline of one our amazing sport teams games, I’m either hammocking, cooking, or looking for the best boba shop in LA. Read on to find out more about my #ViterbiLife and as always Fight On!

 My Favorite Things About USC 

  • I personally love USC football and that is one of the biggest reasons I became a USC spirit leader. Gamedays look a little different for me than most students at USC but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

My Major: Chemical Engineering

     Why Chemical Engineering?

As the daughter of the medical director of the Channel Island National Park, the environment has always been really important to me. This passion sparked my interest in sustainable energy and desire to help create a greener world. USC is the perfect place for me to pursue this goal through my emphasis in sustainable energy in the chemical engineering department.

My Favorite Courses

This is a class in the Kauffman school of dance taught by Dr. Margo Aposotolos. She uses her knowledge of dance to teach how ideas and concepts in dance can be connected to all majors. While taking this class I even did a report on the physics behind certain dance moves.
