Wow, I can’t believe it’s already October. This semester is flying by and Halloween (the best holiday ever) is around the corner! The Fall Viterbi Career Fair is also around the corner and I’ve already started prepping for it. Last year, I took my resume to the Viterbi Career Services office and had someone look over it with me and …

With the first few weeks of school wrapping up, it is time to start thinking about those #ViterbiCareers. The career fair is right around the corner, and already on campus there have been plenty of information sessions for different companies and career guidance events to help everyone get ready for the career fair! It seriously feels like school just started, …

Don’t Worry, We’re Civil – ASCE!

Kelly Civil and Environmental, Kelly, Professional & Academic, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

One of my best decisions in college was joining the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which is easily my favorite Viterbi student organization! ASCE has allowed me to get hands on experiences, work on very unique projects, and make a ton of new friends. It is great to be a part of such a supportive group of civil engineers! …

Hey guys, welcome back! Summer’s over! Which means back to life, back to reality. After concluding my summer research internship at UC Berkeley, I got the chance to go back home for a week.

My Last (and Best) Fall Semester

We’re only two weeks into my senior year at USC and I feel like I’ve already made so many new memories: I drove down to school from San Francisco, moved into my first apartment, made 60 wonderful new friends as a Panhellenic Recruitment Counselor, and just had an amazing labor day/gameday weekend. I can’t even begin to imagine how the …

The Start of Senior Year!

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

With the second week of school just beginning, it is crazy to think that I’m actually a senior now! It is weird to think just how fast college has gone, it feels like yesterday I was moving into Pardee Tower as a freshmen. As I mentioned, this summer I interned with Turner in the estimating department. I talked about my experiences …

My Summer in Bear Territory

I have spent the last six weeks of my summer at UC Berkeley or as many people refer to it: Bear Territory. What is a Trojan doing here you ask? I am here as part of a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation! The program is called ReNUWIt (pronounced RE-NEW-IT) which stands for Re-inventing …

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.

Today marks the last day of an amazing two months interning at MSI General Corporation, a design/build general construction contractor in Southeast Wisconsin.  It’s been an amazing experience, and it went by way too fast! In the past few weeks, I’ve gotten to visit different construction sites that we’ve worked on, seeing projects from the beginning stages up until their …

Somehow I’m already finishing my spring semester of junior year (even though I swear it just began)! It’s been an amazing semester and I’m sad to see it end, but I’m also incredibly excited for the start of the summer. This semester I got to take 5 upper level civil and environmental engineering classes, which was an awesome new experience. I got to …

How I Decided on (and Then Fell in Love With) USC

molly-2016 Civil and Environmental, Molly, Viterbi Life, Why USC, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

I’ve been lucky to spend the past three years at my happiest place on earth, USC. And even through it seems like forever ago, that means it’s only been three short years since I was staring at a pile of acceptance packages from schools all over the country, completely unsure of how I was expected to decide. I was 17, …

Concrete Canoe Pour Day!

Kelly Civil and Environmental, Design Teams, Kelly, Professional & Academic, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

This past Friday was a really exciting time for the American Society of Civil Engineers because we poured our concrete canoe! Pour day is a lot of work because we spend a whole day measuring, mixing, and placing concrete. In order to prepare for pour day, we had to make sure our mold was all ready to go. The mold …

Spring semester marks the start of new classes, perfect weather, and all of my favorite spring activities! The main reason I’m excited for the semester is my amazing schedule. As …
