And now, I am currently writing this post from Melbourne, Australia where I will be studying for the next semester! I just finished orientation and registering for my classes that start on Monday. I’m taking Chemistry, Physics of Electricity and Magnetism, Vector Calculus, and Database Systems. I’m in for a tough semester but all of the classes will transfer from the University of Melbourne to USC so I’ll still be furthering my major along by 16 units while I’m abroad which is awesome! I was really concerned that I wouldn’t be able to graduate in 4 years if I studied abroad but USC really makes sure that if you want to study abroad, you can!
It has been incredible exploring Melbourne so far and I’m really excited for the semester to start even though it will be tough to be away from SC. I’m most bummed about missing football season but luckily I’ll be back in the spring for Dance Marathon, build season for SC Racing, and the Ultimate Frisbee season, as well as Springfest, Coachella, and spring in LA which is my favorite.
Be sure to come back and check up on my Melbourne adventures and feel free to message me if you have any questions about spending a semester abroad or having an internship in the Bay Area!Meet Ally
