Hi everyone! The year is really winding down, and since I’m about to graduate, I’m feeling very nostalgic for all the fun things I’ve had a chance to do in my four years here.  This weekend, I’m actually in Las Vegas for an ice hockey tournament.  Since it’s the last time I’ll be playing for the USC women’s club team, …

Staying Healthy in College

Hi everyone! This week I’m going to talk to you about trying to stay in shape while in college.  It can sometimes be a struggle because there are some really busy semesters where it seems like I just can’t find the time to get to the gym or cook a decent dinner! However, I’ve found that keeping up some moderate …

Weight Training

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I wake up to go to none other than my weight training class! It”s a two-unit course that I get to take, in the PE department, even as an engineer. Honestly, one of the reasons I decided to take it was to force myself to work out, at least twice a week. Just five weeks in, …

I’ve written a couple blogs already about staying healthy as a student and working out at USC, but this semester I’ve decided to take the workouts around Los Angeles! I’d like to just make a quick notes and say, the USC Lyon Center has an amazing facility, set of classes, and USC has Physical Education classes if you really need …

Club Baseball

Sports have always been a part of my life. I played three varsity sports in high school because I couldn’t stand the thought of going a day without having played a sport after school. My special love was baseball. I’d played baseball since I was 6, and I thought that coming to college would mean I’d have to say goodbye …

Sun and Shred: Mammoth

Naish Athletics, Naish, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Weekend getaways are great. I’ve posted in the past about a trip via Amtrak to San Luis Obispo, and how even a few days away from USC and Los Angeles can be fun, recharging, and, relaxing. Last weekend, I made the trip up to Mammoth Mountain. Being from Colorado, I maintain somewhat high standards for skiing, and snow-related activities in …

With school work starting to pick up, it is always nice to have a three-day weekend. However from Wednesday to Saturday, I was actually up in Reno, Nevada for the ASC Student Competition which is a construction management competition that members of CMAA (Construction Management Association of America) attend. There are a number of different divisions within the overall competition like …

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, so I’m definitely sad winter break is over. I had a wonderful time snowboarding with my friends and family at couple different mountains (Copper, Breck and good ol’ Loveland if you’re reading this as a fellow Coloradan). I also got to pond skating at Evergreen Lake, which is something I’ve wanted to …

When I don’t have Midterms, I am hitting the Slopes

California is a very unique place especially LA where you can basically find anything that you could possibly want. Here at USC I know that I can walk a mile to the staple center, take a twenty minute Uber to the Santa Monica pier, and take a five hour scenic car ride with some friends to Mammoth Mountain. Like my …

The Great Outdoors and SC Outfitters

As someone from Colorado, I grew up hiking and camping all my life. I absolutely love the outdoors and have continued to go out hiking and camping as much as possible in college. Although our campus is gorgeous, it’s nice to get away from city life and get some fresh natural air. Getting to hiking trails and camp spots can …

Viterbi Plus: Tennis!

Naish Athletics, Naish, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

All the wonderful academic clubs and organizations on campus are exciting ways to become more involved in any area of your interest. However, sometimes it’s nice to completely break out of whatever shell you’re normally constrained to, and participate in other organizations that are completely out of the norm for your everyday life. For me, this is the Club Tennis …
