Tales of a Food-Loving Engineer

Natalie Monger Campus Events, Food, Natalie, Students, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Sometimes, I plan my school days around food. For example… “Okay, so, after I grab my warm breakfast from RTH Café, I’ll go to SAL for office hours until I finish the second homework question. Then, I’ll skip over to Campus Center and have a pizza for lunch. Maybe I will get ice cream with a friend when classes are …

I’m talking about arguably the best food truck event in Southern California that is only a short metro ride, drive, or Uber from USC!

Health as a Priority in College?

Michelle Food, Michelle, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Usually, when people think about college life as an engineer, questions revolve around coursework, free time exploring the city, and student organizations for ways to get involved. In my time at USC, though, I’ve realized that there’s one part of student life that is often put on the back burner: health. Now that finals season is fast approaching (thank goodness …

First Take: Manhattan Beach!

Jose Hernandez Beach, Free Time, Jose Leave a Comment

What’s up everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic Veteran’s day, I know I did. After a busy week of classes, I felt an itch to get off campus today and go someplace I’d never been before! Southern California seems to have forgotten that it’s almost the middle of November, so it was a toasty 88 DEGREES today, if you can believe …

USC Traditions: at the dining halls

Hannah Dorm, Hannah, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

One of my favorite USC traditions, rather unexpectedly, happens during finals week.  For three nights during stop days (time blocked out before finals start) the dining halls open up at midnight for those who have the late night cravings. Rotating each day, I remember heading to each dining hall my freshman year at midnight covered in highlighter ink and post …
