With graduation just around the corner and the start of my career approaching in just six months, I wanted to reach out to some USC alumni to ask for any advice they may have as I start the next portion of my life. The perfect solution for me to speak with alumni was a SCupper – a dinner networking event …

To prevent myself from just listing …

Back to School

Frankie Frankie, The Hightlights, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I know it has been awhile, but I am finally back to school. Winter break was very interesting and relaxing. I say interesting because it was so much different than the first one last year. Last year it entailed a lot of hanging with friends, but every night encompassed searching for parties and trying to revert back to high school …

Annual Trojan Family Weekend

Hannah Hannah Leave a Comment

This past weekend, campus was filled with not only students as usual but siblings, grandparents, cousins, close friends–essentially all relatives of the Trojan Family.  One of my favorite parts of USC is the family spirit.  Miles away from where I grew up, USC is the home away from home that makes me feel welcomed and among family at all times. …

Hi everyone! This week is career week here at Viterbi! Last night was an event called VINE, which stands for the Viterbi Industry Networking Event. Over  70 companies attended this event, and it was a great chance to get to know recruiters in a more casual setting before the career fair today! Although I still went to VINE, and am …

One of the few organizations I actually continued with my sophomore year is KIUEL, The Klein Institute of Undergraduate Engineering Life! I started my involvement in KIUEL by joining …

Tips for Freshmen

Molly Molly, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

During Welcome Week of my freshman year, I learned a lot: how to properly shake someone’s hand, how to ride a bike while carrying a backpack and a coffee, and how to remember more new names and faces than I ever thought possible.  I had an amazing time, and made friends that I’m still very close with today.  But I’ve …

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays.

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 …
