Sarah Sarah Leave a Comment

Hey Y’all! First off, that game with Stanford this weekend! All I have to say about that is “Timber” and “Fight On”. I’m so proud of our team and how well they have been doing these past two games! Hopefully this momentum they’re building will carry them through the rest of the season. This weekend I got to mark something …

Oh The Places You’ll Go…

Emily Emily, The Best of LA Leave a Comment

One of the wonderful things about USC is that there are so many things on or just off campus that almost everything you need is conveniently located. Because of this, however, sometimes you have to make an effort to go out and explore LA. LA is such a large, diverse city that sometimes the thought of exploration can be daunting. …

Geez, at the end of the summer why does it always feel like August came right after May? However fast the summer flew by, the experiences I had were, to me, nothing short of spectacular. Here are a couple of my highlights: This year was my first year at USC Racing’s competition in Lincoln, NE. We had a 27-hour car …

I can’t believe summer is already coming to an end! It went by way too quickly, like it always does. I spent all of my summer in Los Angeles, and I had some pretty amazing experiences. 1. I decided to take Writing 340 for Engineers over the summer.  Writing 340 is a required class for all upperclassmen at USC, and …

Too Cool for School

Ian Ian, Summer Experiences, The Best of LA, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

USC is a wonderful place to be any time of the year. It’s colorful, naturally radiant, and a blessing to have. It is also plopped right in the middle of the wondrous city of Los Angeles. And when you have had a long week of classes on campus, sometimes the best feeling is getting away.  Here’s a short traveler’s guide …

Today marks the start of the last week of classes. At the end of this week, I will be half way done with college, having completed two full years here at the University of Southern California.

Philanthropy Phriday

jacquie Jacquie, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays. I played beach volleyball, was pied with whip cream, and even distributed books to children. These all supported great causes and were lots of fun! I wanted to share some of those experiences with you.

Passover in College

Alex Alex, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Today marks the seventh day of Passover. Today also marks the seventh day of avoiding bread and wheat-products like the plague. As a high school senior, I often wondered how I would continue observing Jewish holidays while at USC, and the holiday of Passover presents the perfect challenge. Would the dining halls have matzah? Would I go hungry for a …
