Can’t Believe it’s Senior Year!

Lauren Lauren H. Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! I can’t believe I just started my senior year at SC! It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago when I moved into Birnkrant. The end of summer went by really fast. I wrapped up my internship with PwC and then headed to Disneyworld with the rest of the interns to celebrate our offers. I’m happy to …

Back to Los Angeles!

My summer was absolutely fantastic! I reconnected with old friends and I know, despite how far away USC is from Chicago, that I won’t ever lose those relationships. Meanwhile, my internship with Castwell Products Inc. was everything I could have asked for; I definitely feel more prepared for my professional career. But seeing USC on ESPN (AP Poll #8!) started …

Back to School! – Fall Preview

Ellen Computer Science, Ellen, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

Hi everybody! I hope you all enjoyed (or are still enjoying) the last of your summer vacations.  After wrapping up summer school, I spent some time at home and went to Seattle to visit family.  We went to see a really cool glass exhibit – the colors and sheer number of pieces were amazing! I’ve just wrapped up week 1 …

Fight On for Fall Semester

Hey guys, school is back in session and I’m so pumped to start the second half of my undergraduate career at SC! After an exhausting summer of non-stop travel it’s nice to know that I’ll be in one place, at least for a little while. The rest of my family vacation in Italy was fantastic, and I’ve been putting together …

Welcome back Trojans! And welcome to all new Trojans as well! The beginning of the year is always rich with excitement and reconnecting with friends. The first few weeks of school have seen some of my best experiences thus far at USC, and will always get me excited to return from whatever I’ve been doing the past summer (although the …

Why USC Is the Perfect School for Me

Sarah Sarah, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I’m currently in denial over the fact that in a little less than two months the semester is going to be over, I’ll start interning at Texas Instrument, and I’ll be classified as a senior. I’m not ready for my time at USC to come to an end. As I look forward to my final year as an undergrad at …

Annual Trojan Family Weekend

Hannah Hannah Leave a Comment

This past weekend, campus was filled with not only students as usual but siblings, grandparents, cousins, close friends–essentially all relatives of the Trojan Family.  One of my favorite parts of USC is the family spirit.  Miles away from where I grew up, USC is the home away from home that makes me feel welcomed and among family at all times. …

My Favorite Study Break: Watching Trojan Football

Sarah Sarah Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! It’s midterm season, and with that, the stress levels around USC can get fairly high. It’s important during this time of the semester to remember to take breaks from the pile of books and just relax. That’s probably the best advice I could give you for when this time of year rolls around. With that being said, I …

So Far So Busy: Student Orgs, Classes, and Football

Ellen Ellen, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

What a weekend! I know you’ve all probably heard a lot about the Weekender by now since it was nearly a week ago, but I have to mention it.  It was such a great game! Clearly, emotions were running high and Stanford certainly didn’t make it easy on us, but we won and that’s all a Trojan fan can ask …


My Weekender in San Francisco!

Samantha Kaplan-2015 Samantha, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

This weekend, I got to make the trip up to San Francisco for the “Weekender”.  The “Weekender” is when USC students all make the trip up to Northern California for the football game, either against Cal or Stanford.  It’s an incredible experience because USC basically takes over the entire city for the weekend – you can’t go anywhere without running …


Bring It On Fall Semester

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Oh, fall semester. The semester of football, football, and football. Oh, and football. All right, so there’s a lot more to the start of the school year than just football, but given the history and culture of USC football, it’s worth mentioning (at least once). This fall is the start of my sophomore year and it’s going to be busy …

Fall Classes and THE WEEKENDER

Ally Ally, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

This semester I am taking five classes: Computer Science, Probability, Enterprise Systems, Physics, and Art History. I was a little nervous about taking four technical classes but so far it seems manageable! My favorite class so far is ITP-320 or Enterprise Information Systems. It’s an intro class to SAP taught by Professor Kale and I like it because it teaches really …

Hey there! It’s so hard to believe that it was only three weeks ago that I finished up summer school.  I spent almost all that time moving into my new apartment and getting ready for a busy year.  Here’s a little preview of what my fall semester is going to look like. As far as classes go, I’m taking MATH …


The Start of Junior Year

Hi everyone! I hope you have had a great start to the week. I am officially out of summer mode and back into the swing of things here at USC. I am jumping right back into the organizations I was previously involved in and starting out in my new classes. Here is a little overview of what this coming semester …

My Senior Fall Semester!

Makana Krulce-2015 Chemical, Makana, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

So, apparently it’s my senior year… What?! Where did the time go? I don’t think I’m ready to admit that I’m graduating soon. Thankfully, I have a pretty solid bucket list for my last couple semesters here, so I hope to finish this year. This semester is going to be pretty exciting. I have quite a busy senior year schedule …

Hey everyone! Hope you all have had a good start back to school so far. It’s really hard for me to come to terms with the fact that I’m starting the second half of my time as an undergraduate here at USC! I’ve come a long way since Freshman year, and I can’t wait to see how I continue to …

Hey everyone! It’s hard to believe that I’m already into the second half of my undergraduate career here at USC, but I also couldn’t be more excited! This first week was a whirlwind of activity, and it’s looking like the rest of the semester is going to be equally busy and fun! Junior year means the start of some smaller, …
