Class of 2016
San Diego, CA
This summer I was abroad in Rome with the Viterbi Overseas program! It was great being able to take classes abroad, and I loved exploring the country of Italy (not to mention a ton of fantastic gelato!)
During my freshman year, I was lucky to have the opportunity to do research with Dr. Najm Meshkati.  Along with three other undergraduate students, I researched pediatric patient safety, a major concern across the nation.  Our hopes were to implement our solutions to this problem at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
I have been part of the W.V.T. Rusch Undergraduate Engineering Honors Program (EHP) since my freshman year.  Being part of EHP has allowed me to participate in academic and social activities, and hear some amazing speakers in the weekly speaker series!

Hey everyone! I’m Lauren Howe, and I’m a sophomore on the Computers track for Industrial and Systems Engineering.  I am a true Southern Californian, born and raised in beautiful sunny San Diego, CA!  At USC, I have had the opportunity to be involved with great organizations and meet many wonderful people.  When I first arrived at USC I quickly got involved in my sorority and merit research.  I am a member of a social sorority on campus and conduct research at the USC Interaction Lab. Through my sorority I am able to meet women pursuing a variety of majors who encourage me each day.  Through my merit research project, I am able to meet many inspiring faculty members, PhD students, and specialists in various engineering fields.  Additionally, within Viterbi, I have had the pleasure to get to know many Trojan engineers that are scholarly, driven, supportive, and outgoing.
