When I was looking at schools, I knew I wanted two things: the best academics I could find and division I athletics for me to root for. USC was perfect for both these, and much more. Undergraduate research was something I wasn’t exposed to at any other university I visited, and at USC, it was not only possible, but very much the norm for undergraduate engineering students to participate in hands-on research. Little did I know that one week into my first semester at USC I began working at the CHAFF (a space-simulation lab on campus)–just one of the many opportunities I had as soon as I stepped onto USC’s campus!
I’m involved in many engineering and non-engineering related things, from working in the USC Formula SAE lab to being a member of a fraternity. No matter what your goals are, you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your interests and aspirations at USC. Check out my blog, twitter, or send me an email with the icon above. I’d be happy to talk to you about the opportunities at USC!
