Biomedical Engineering
Class of 2015
Bellvue, WA
I am member of the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering (ASBME), a national professional organization. To me, the main benefit of the group is to get to know other biomedical engineers and learn about current events and opportunities in the industry. This group forms a strong network of USC Biomedical Engineers that mentor one another in class and in work.
In high school, I taught Health Education classes with a club that I was in, and this was something that I wanted to continue in college. In the first few weeks of freshman year, I found Peer Health Educators at USC! I applied my first semester here, and I have continued in the club ever since then.
Two summers ago, I had the opportunity to study abroad in London! I went abroad with the Viterbi Summer Overseas Program, and it was an experience that I would recommend to everyone.  I got to get ahead of my classes while abroad and also explore a beautiful country and make new friends!

Hi! My name is Lauren Pelo and I am studying Biomedical Engineering. I am a junior from Bellevue, WA, a suburb of Seattle.  On campus, I have gotten the opportunity to get involved in Peer Health Educators (which is where I administer the anonymous HIV tests), Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering, the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, the Viterbi Summer Overseas program in London, and Trojan Scholars Society.  I am also a huge foodie, so exploring the LA restaurant scene with friends on a weekend or for a nice study break has been one of my favorite activities off-campus!
