(And online at kxsc.org/listen) Hey Everyone! One of my favorite involvements on campus isn’t a part of Viterbi at all! Last fall I joined the student run radio station, KXSC Los Angeles. Going into college, I decided that I no longer wanted to continue marching band after high school, but I knew I wanted to find a way pursue music. …

Hey guys! We just got back from spring break, and it’s been such a strange adjustment coming back to school. I spent spring break road tripping through the Southwest with my parents, and saw a lot of incredible national parks and took literally over 1500 pictures.

Hi guys!! With midterms and exams coming to a close, the last few weeks have been a little more relaxed for me, which, after a very stressful semester, has been a relief.

Not only was I discovering authentic tacos and soaking up the San Diego sun, but I also was beginning to discover myself and my identity. In Virginia things are very much black and white. Having a black mother meant I was black and …

USC Traditions: Concerts on Campus

Michelle Campus Events, Michelle, Music, Trojan Spirit, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Everyone knows about the great concerts at the Staples Center, which is conveniently a short metro ride away from USC. But, what’s even better than that? Concerts on campus! Every year, USC has annual events that involve live concerts on McCarthy Quad, and they’re always so much fun! They’re also completely free (and you thought it couldn’t get any better). …
