It’s pretty weird to think that only a year ago, I was living in an on-campus dorm filled with freshman, eating at EVK (before they renovated it- its so swanky now!), and randomly meeting new people everyday in the elevator. If you’ve read my last blog about housing at USC, I’ve talked about the great experience I had in Birnkrant, …

This summer has been a very fun and productive one. Working as an intern at Northrop Grumman has been the paramount of happenings since an internship is technically a 3 month long interview where you have to be prompt, productive, work hard, and, ultimately, show the company you are worth the investment.  However, to unwind I have been going to …

One of my favorite events every summer is the Pageant of the Masters and Festival of Art in Laguna Beach, CA.  I’ve gone to this event every year for as long as I can remember, and it is always fantastic.  Basically, the Pageant of the Masters is a show that brings art to life according to a theme; live volunteers …

Ask any USC student why they love LA, and you will probably get some answer related to food, weather, people or culture. And even though these reasons may seem basic, they become important once you are a college student and are free to completely explore your surrounding city. One of the first places that students usually explore is LA Live, …

Okay maybe that previous statement isn’t exactly true.  Hawaii is probably my favorite place I’ve ever been to in the world.  Maybe a better title would be “Why LA is the greatest place in the world to live” because there is truly nowhere else with the same opportunities as LA.  First, LA has unparalleled weather.  I think we have had …

Location Matters: Los Angeles

Zach-2014 Best of LA Leave a Comment

Something I underestimated when touring different colleges was exactly our important the location of a school is. Being in LA not only provides you with limitless fun things to do, but also gives you access to some of the greatest academic and professional opportunities.

Hey Everyone! Hope you are having a great President’s Day weekend.   You know, as much as I love to be in LA, and USC particularly, sometimes you just need to get away…..and remind yourself that there is more to life than just school….for some people like me with two majors, I do need that occasional reminder. Thank goodness for …

It’s almost impossible to run out of things to appreciate about LA because every now and then, I stumble upon a hidden gem, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with the best food, or a unique experience I know I won’t find anywhere else. In my four years living in LA, never once did I believe I’ve seen all there is to see …
