Family First

erica Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

Freshman year was easily one of the most exciting years of my life. However, it was also the longest time I’ve ever spent away from my family.  Living 2,000 miles away from our home in Chicago, I only got to see them over a few major holidays.  My two brothers, Aaron and Elliott, have always been my best friends and …

Hi everyone! Well, today was the last day of classes…I can’t believe how fast this semester went! I still feel like I just got back from winter break! Anyway. These last couple of weeks I’ve been saying goodbye to all my friends who are seniors. It’s really hard to say goodbye to so many good friends. But on the bright …

juliana-2016 Best of LA, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Since I’m just finishing my freshman year here at USC, I’m really not much older or wiser than those of you planning to start college next year. Instead of strictly giving you advice, I’m going to tell you about the events and activities that have had the largest positive impact on my freshman year so that hopefully you get a …

caitlin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

So every Monday night, all the sororities and fraternities hold a nice dinner at their house called Monday Night Dinner. For these dinners both the girls and guys dress up and sit in their respective houses and have dinner all together. What usually happens during these dinners (besides eating amazing food) is that each sorority or fraternity house get announcements from local companies or USC organizations. …

On Monday night, there was a celebration in McCarthy Quad called “Anything Goes.” There were several teams from different student organizations, and each of them had to compete in various activities.

A little bit of Texas in LA

chandler Uncategorized Leave a Comment

For those times when I’m feeling homesick for the smell of BBQ, the assumption that you want your tea sweet, the southern manners and yes ma’ams, the boots on game day, the obsession with all Texas sports teams, the love of queso, the unrealistically large portions, and general home-bodied nature of my friends in Texas… I have found a few …

Hey everyone, This week, I’m going to talk a little about my involvement with the USC chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE). This is on my mind this week, because they recently got a twitter and I started following them. IIE hosts a variety of different activities for its members throughout the school year. These activities are social, …

Women in Engineering

kristen-2012 Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

When I first started considering engineering, I remember a few different people being surprised at my choice, remarking that there weren’t too many female engineers. Although this seemed like a big deal to those people while they were telling me, I didn’t think much about it. To me it seemed like just another stereotype — probably based on past truths, …

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant

chandler Housing Leave a Comment

  Freshman housing at USC is unbeatable. All of my hall mates became my closest friends throughout my freshman year. We ate together at EVK (shout out waffles, froyo machine, outside grill, Chicken Nugget Tuesday), went on midnight snack runs to Tro Gro (shout out Trojan Plan), and there was always someone there to distract you from boredom. Though our …

Epic Adventure… Philanthropic Endeavor. I don’t know how else to describe Dance Marathon. It’s the greatest 12-hour-long, dance-party-themed philanthropy at USC! Last Saturday, we raised over $60K benefitting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Miracle Network. It takes all year to plan the event and fund-raise, but on Feb. 25th we finally get to celebrate. For 12 hours, we dance, dance, and dance, …
