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 …

Hi folks!  When you finally settle on a college, everyone will undoubtably ask you why you chose your school. When I first was accepted to USC, I didn’t have an answer to this question.

Maligayang pagdating sa Pilipinas! (Welcome to the Philippines! in Filipino/Tagolog) Our trip to the Philippines was one of the most physically and emotionally exhausting in many ways. Not only did we spend way too many hours on cramped ferries traveling to distant islands, but we also saw some of the starkest and most brutal poverty in Southeast Asia. When looking …
