Why USC Was the One for Me

Bria Bria, Civil and Environmental, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

I remember two years ago when I had to make the most difficult decision of my life: where to commit for college.

My parents and friends all had their …

Environmental Engineering + Nonprofits = Life

Bria Bria, Civil and Environmental, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

When thinking about my favorite classes, I have two in mind that I love: PPD 402 and CE 210L. I took CE 210L (aka Introduction to Environmental Engineering Microbiology) last semester and it was such a cool experience.

Everyone always asks me what my favorite places on campus are. Narrowing down my favorite spots to just a few is tough, but here it goes! For studying, my go-to place has to be Doheny Library.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer break! Whether you spent your summer working, at summer school, travelling, or just hanging out at home, it’s nice to have a break from exams and projects for a little while.
