USC for ME

Hannah Food, Hannah, Music, Suite 0 Comments

Sunshine? Free Food? Concerts? Shopping? USC has it all. What I wanted from college was not only a unique education (as expected) but also a college experience.  I wanted to look back on four years to a place and not only remember everything I’ve learned but also what I did on the weekends, with my friends and after class. Here …

My Freshman Home: Parkside

Hannah Hannah, Suite 0 Comments

I’ve lived in University Housing all 4 years but I still remember a lot of the fun times I had my Freshman year in IRC Parkside.

USC Traditions: at the dining halls

Hannah Dorm, Hannah, Viterbi Life 0 Comments

One of my favorite USC traditions, rather unexpectedly, happens during finals week.  For three nights during stop days (time blocked out before finals start) the dining halls open up at midnight for those who have the late night cravings. Rotating each day, I remember heading to each dining hall my freshman year at midnight covered in highlighter ink and post …

Taipei for Christmas or New Years? I definitely recommend the trip!

LA Shows!

Hannah Hannah, Music, Viterbi Life 0 Comments

LA isn’t known for its Broadway musicals and shows quite like New York City is, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any to go to for just as an amazing of an experience! One of my favorite things to do around LA is to find shows to go to and within the past three years I definitely have some highlights. …

Fall 2016 is starting already! I can’t believe the summer’s over but the fun continues.  Having interned at Chevron this past summer, I’m even more interested in the petroleum class I’m taking now: drilling technologies.  The class has been a great way to connect theory to the hands on applications I experienced in the field in Bakersfield.  The labs for …
