What It’s Like as a Girl in Engineering

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 you’re in a sorority?

And frankly I don’t get it. Why is it so hard for people to wrap their heads around the fact that not all engineers are males? Why is it so difficult for people to grasp the fact that I am in a sorority and in Viterbi. For some reason, the two aren’t supposed to go hand in hand. But they do.  So I’m here to address those frequently asked questions.

USC – The Right Pick for Me

Hey everyone! I hope you have had enjoyable weeks. I took a week off from blogging to take a trip to Mexico for spring break and had a great time! Now that I’m back in the groove of things, I cannot believe this school year is already coming to an end, and I will be a junior before I know it. It feels like not too long ago that I was choosing which college to go to. Since many of you will be making your college decisions in the next month or so, I thought I would tell you a little bit about why I chose to come to USC.

Why I chose USC and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else!!

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! I just got back from Hawaii for spring break which was amazing and it’s definitely hard to get back into work mode after that, but this week I wanted to share about what made me choose USC.  Choosing college is by far the most difficult decision I had faced at that time, and it’s a huge commitment to choose somewhere for four years, but USC not only lived up to my expectations but far exceeded them.

Why Going Home for Spring Break is a Great Idea

Hi everyone!

I just got home for Spring Break last night, and I’m so excited to be blogging from Dallas, Texas for the first time in a while. I’m so happy to be back in Dallas for the week, especially since I haven’t been home in a long time considering the fact that I spent the majority of my Christmas break in Antarctica. I’m also glad to be able to spend time in Dallas since I’ll be studying abroad in Rome through the Viterbi Overseas Program for the majority of my summer.

Recent Excitement: My Plans for Spring Break 2014 and My New Minor

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. On the bright side, it’s only delayed by 25 minutes, and that just gives me 25 more minutes to blog, right? Anyways, back to the reason I’m hanging out at LAX: I’m heading home for Spring Break 2014!

Mama and Papa Lowe Take on USC

Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed reading my blog last week about my major. It is finally Friday and a long President’s Day weekend! I look forward to heading to the movies with friends and relaxing on the beach in the next couple of days. Last weekend, my parents came to USC for Pi Beta Phi’s parent events. On Friday, my mom and I went to a beautiful brunch followed by a father-daughter basketball game on Saturday. I thought I would tell you a little about how fun both of these events were!
