Thailand: A Collegiate Spring Break

Alex-2016 Alex Leave a Comment

My final spring break in high school probably sounded very similar to your final high school spring break. Having not yet selected, but already visited, USC, I spent my 2012 spring vacation visiting schools in the American southeast. I took tours at the University of Miami, Georgia Tech, Embry Riddle, and Florida Tech before succumbing to the region’s wicked humidity. …

Hi everyone! Can’t believe it’s finally fall in LA, we had our first cold day today!  Fall always brings new experiences, and something new that I’m doing this fall is interning with Webcor Builders in Downtown LA, less than a ten minute drive from my apartment.  It’s been an amazing experience so far, and I can’t wait to get more into …

There are so many things to get involved in outside of engineering at USC. Even though I love my #ViterbiOrgs, it’s important to be involved in things outside your major to broaden your horizons, and the atmosphere at USC is very conducive to that mindset. Some of my favorite involvements are: SC Outfitters, an outdoors and hiking club; PAWS, an …

One of my best decisions in college was joining the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which is easily my favorite Viterbi student organization! ASCE has allowed me to get hands on experiences, work on very unique projects, and make a ton of new friends. It is great to be a part of such a supportive group of civil engineers! …
