Shayna Goldberger Abroad, Shayna 0 Comments

I think the number one question I’ve been asked since deciding to study abroad is why I chose to come to Hong Kong. And, as with most decisions in my life (like why I chose USC, or why I chose to major in electrical engineering), I’ve realized the reasons I decided on Hong Kong and the reasons why I’ve loved …

The last week of March, my older sister came to visit! She spent four days in Hong Kong, and I got to be part tour guide, showing her around my stomping grounds, and part tourist, hitting up some of the main sites I hadn’t been to yet (including the cultural center of Disneyland Hong Kong). It was great to feel …

The past few weekends have been a blur: I went to Philippines for some ~fun in the sun~; was backstage at Hong Kong’s premier (read: only) music festival, Dragonland, where all my middle school favs were gathered (Mike Posner, Carly Rae Jepson, Iggy Azalea, and the Black Eyed Peas); and celebrated my 21st birthday! All in all, not a bad few …

Hello everyone! This summer I was fortunate enough to participate in the Viterbi Summer Overseas program. It all started in late May, when I met up with 40 or so other Viterbi students in Madrid, Spain for summer classes. I soon realized however that this was no ordinary study abroad program. Not only had Viterbi managed to fit writing and …

Hello from Spain! Well, actually from Bakersfield since I’ve been back for about a week, but you get the idea.

Students take two classes that count …

¡Hola chicos! I just got back from the Viterbi Overseas Program, a wonderful program that takes us USC engineers abroad to take classes towards our major while enjoying a sizzling Spanish paella or walking through the narrow streets of La Latina. Basically, I just spent the last seven weeks abroad and miss it terribly, so bear with me while I …

While it’s a little bitter sweet to be leaving USC and Los Angeles for the summer, I’m really excited for what’s in store. First, I’m returning home to visit friends and …
