VSA: A Way to Be a Viterbi Leader

Jacquie Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Halloweens last week. I cannot believe it is already November. This semester keeps flying by with some great times. Some of my favorite memories have come from my involvement in different organizations. Of these, I have been able to learn so much from being a Viterbi Student Ambassador. Not only do I get to write about my real life experiences at USC, but I also get to meet students from all over the country. It is also a great perk to work with such accomplished and driven classmates.

When I decided to come to USC, I knew I wanted to get involved in leadership organizations. Viterbi Student Ambassadors became the way for me to do that in Viterbi. I have been able to be myself and tell high school students about my great experience here. I know that when I was making my college decision it wasn’t easy. I am glad to be able to help students see if their interests line up with what Viterbi has to offer. It is a great way to meet interesting and unique individuals from all over the globe!

VSA has also given me a way to meet other students in Viterbi. On the team are about 30 students from all different combinations of majors and minors in the engineering school. Not only do we all have different academic interests, but we all are involved in a plethora of activities. Hearing what everyone else is up to keeps me motivated to stay involved and try new things! Just this year, a new VSA, Ian, encouraged me to join the 3D4E Printing Club. Without him, I may not have even known that this club existed on campus. I also have gotten advice on different classes and opportunities in Viterbi, helping me excel through the semester.

Some of the great people I get to work with!

Being a VSA has been a fun and rewarding experience! I look forward to remaining a part of this team until my senior year. It has by far been one of my favorite activities. Fight on!
