I love Los Angeles which is one of the reasons why I stayed here for college. I can name hundreds of places that I love to go to on a regular basis but, I am choosing one of my recent favorites Dockweiler Beach. One of the best perks about going to USC is your relative location to almost everything. Being …

Manhattan Beach and Mammoth Mountain

Frankie Frankie Leave a Comment

Even though it took me a little while to get there, when I got to Manhattan Beach this year before school, I knew it was a special place. It was one of those moments when you’re like I have to make a lot of money and live there at some point. I even went there this weekend with my one …

Concert in a Hanger!

Hannah Hannah Leave a Comment

One of the best parts of living in LA are all the concerts–a lot of which are free! This past week I got to go to Vevo’s Certified SuperFanFest 2014 in Santa Monica. My best friend and I got to have an evening out to see Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea live at a really cool venue.  We headed toward Santa Monica …

Oh The Places You’ll Go…

Emily Emily, The Best of LA Leave a Comment

One of the wonderful things about USC is that there are so many things on or just off campus that almost everything you need is conveniently located. Because of this, however, sometimes you have to make an effort to go out and explore LA. LA is such a large, diverse city that sometimes the thought of exploration can be daunting. …

My Favorite LA Activities

Ellen Ellen, The Best of LA, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

Growing up less than an hour outside of Downtown LA, I had the opportunity to experience a lot of what LA had to offer before I even came to USC.  Now that I live in the heart of LA, I’m even closer to everything I enjoyed before.  I also get to discover even more things to do! Before college, one …

Philanthropy Phriday

Jacquie Jacquie, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays. I played beach volleyball, was pied with whip cream, and even distributed books to children. These all supported great causes and were lots of fun! I wanted to share some of those experiences with you.

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

Sarah Sarah, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Entering college, I was told time and time again my first year would fly by. I thought they were all exaggerating. Well, they weren’t. And the scary thing is that sophomore year flies by even faster. I still can’t believe that I am almost halfway done with my time as an undergrad at USC.  During that first year, days blurred …

April, the Best Month at USC

Alex Alex, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

At colleges across the nation, April marks the beginning of spring. Even as far north as Boston, students pull out the beach towels and Frisbees and hit the quad to soak up some sun as the temperature rises. At USC, the same phenomenon occurs. The thermostat begins to regularly peak past 75 degrees (remember, the 55 degree winters here in …

What It’s Like as a Girl in Engineering

Sarah Sarah, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

I still get looks of surprise when people ask me what I’m studying and my response is that I’m a chemical engineer. These shocked expressions are typically followed by a series of questions such as the following: No, what are you really studying? Really? What’s it like to be a girl in a field so strongly dominated by males? But …

I can’t believe I’m already heading into the end of the spring semester of my second year here at USC.  It’s hard to think that just two years ago around this time  I was committing to USC–and looking back, I’ll say that it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made!

Hey guys! I hope things are going well. I’m currently sitting in the Los Angeles International Airport, more affectionate known as LAX, waiting for my (delayed) flight home to Portland.
