Hi all! I hope you all are enjoying the fall weather! Back in Houston, fall is the best season of the year because it is not at 100% humidity like the other 9 months of the year. What can I say… California does have the best weather! Anyway, I wanted to share with y’all one of the coolest projects that …

Hello! I hope your school year has started off on the right foot! Here at USC, I am deep into Week 5 of school. Yeah I know, Week 5. However, this school year in particular is especially interesting for me because it is the first year I get to actually take Building Science classes! I get to play around with …


The Civil Engineering Marvel of the West Coast

Nayely Gutierrez Best of LA, Civil and Environmental, Nayely, Viterbi Life, Women In Engineering 0 Comments

Describe Los Angeles in one word: Construction. I cannot help but to look at the construction of the Wilshire Grand Center in downtown in awe. It will soon be the tallest skyscraper on the West Coast, and I can see it being built right before my eyes! Something about the way a building is constructed has always amazed me and …

LACMA Over Spring Break, I went somewhere I have been wanting to go since I moved from Houston to LA; I went on a visit to the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art (LACMA), but more specifically, I went to the Frank Gehry exhibit. I am an avid fan of architecture. Last semester, when I took a class in architecture for …

I don’t know how this happened, but it’s my last semester here at USC! After a wonderfully relaxing (and warm) winter break at home in Florida, I’m back on the (still nice and warm) West Coast. I spent a lot of time with family, and studying for my Engineer in Training (EIT) exam which I took at the beginning of …

Somehow this week is my fourth and final undergraduate fall internship week! I swear I was just headed to my very first one with my freshman academy class. Lucky for me, as a senior this week means lots of networking with companies I am familiar with, as well as reflecting on the work that I’ve done in the past. As …

With the first few weeks of school wrapping up, it is time to start thinking about those #ViterbiCareers. The career fair is right around the corner, and already on campus there have been plenty of information sessions for different companies and career guidance events to help everyone get ready for the career fair!

Don’t Worry, We’re Civil – ASCE!

Kelly Civil and Environmental, Kelly, Professional & Academic, Viterbi Orgs 0 Comments

One of my best decisions in college was joining the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which is easily my favorite Viterbi student organization! ASCE has allowed me to get hands on experiences, work on very unique projects, and make a ton of new friends. It is great to be a part of such a supportive group of civil engineers! …

My Last (and Best) Fall Semester

We’re only two weeks into my senior year at USC and I feel like I’ve already made so many new memories: I drove down to school from San Francisco, moved into my first apartment, made 60 wonderful new friends as a Panhellenic Recruitment Counselor, and just had an amazing labor day/gameday weekend. I can’t even begin to imagine how the …


The Start of Senior Year!

Kelly Civil and Environmental, Kelly, Viterbi Class 0 Comments

With the second week of school just beginning, it is crazy to think that I’m actually a senior now! It is weird to think just how fast college has gone, it feels like yesterday I was moving into Pardee Tower as a freshmen. As I mentioned, this summer I interned with Turner in the estimating department. I talked about my experiences …
