My Favorite Place in LA: Grand Central Market

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

As a self-proclaimed foodie it’s no surprise that one of my favorite places in Los Angeles is Grand Central Market. It’s basically an open floor plan of vendors for food. If you’ve ever been to Philadelphia it’s a like a smaller version of Reading Terminal Market (if you’re in Philadelphia and haven’t tried it, I highly recommend Beck’s Cajun Cafe …

Hannah Hannah, The Best of LA Leave a Comment

If you’re craving something sweet and cold head to Salt & Straw.  You don’t have to give up ice cream during the fall and winter in Los Angeles; so this past Tuesday my friends and I took a trip to Larchmont where a small ice cream parlor serves the best ice cream on the block. The menu had exquisitely unique …

Manhattan Beach and Mammoth Mountain

Frankie Frankie Leave a Comment

Even though it took me a little while to get there, when I got to Manhattan Beach this year before school, I knew it was a special place. It was one of those moments when you’re like I have to make a lot of money and live there at some point. I even went there this weekend with my one …

Troy Camp

With that being said, I decided to compile a list of the best restaurants to take your parents during this weekend! 1) Bottega Louie Located in Downtown, Bottega Louie is one of the best Italian restaurants …

My favorite LA hobby, going to concerts!

Betty Betty, The Best of LA, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Living in the suburbs of LA my whole life, I always had to make the hour (or two hours in traffic) trek to LA to see concerts. Now that I live in the heart of downtown LA, I am just a couple metro stops from the Staples Center, and a few more stops to the Pantages Theater or the Palladium …

My Favorite Extracurricular: Adsum Literary Magazine

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

I’ve already written a post about why it’s good to have activities outside of engineering, but right now I’m going to talk more specifically about my favorite extracurricular: Adsum literary magazine. One of my goals in life (aside from world domination) is to be a novelist. Not necessarily as my primary source of income (at least not to begin with, I would …

My favorite student organization is the one that I’ve had the largest opportunity to grow in: The American Institute of Chemical Engineers! I joined the American Institute of Chemical Engineers when I was a freshmen as a way to get to know the chemical engineers at USC outside of the classroom.

You Made What?! 3D Printing

Ian Aerospace and Mechanical, Astro Engineering, Biomedical, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental, CompSci, Electrical, Ian, industrial and systems, Uncategorized, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

One of the greatest things about USC, in my humble opinion, is the ability for students to see a need and fill it. Last year my friends and I decided that there was a shortage of 3D printing opportunities for students across all majors on USC’s campus. Several schools here- including the Architecture School, Viterbi, and Roski- have access to …

What to do for Halloween in LA

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Happy Halloween! As a Seattle native, fall in Los Angeles often doesn’t seem like fall, more like perpetual summer with a slightly lower sun. It eventually gets cold in Los Angeles (translation: lower 60s), but October still tends to be in the 80s. You won’t catch me complaining, but occasionally, I do miss the typical fall weather of home: red, orange, …

As I talked about last week, I have great hideaway spots on campus where I can get work done without sacrificing the great views of campus. But sometimes, I love to get off campus and go explore what’s around USC, since I’m not from the area. My sophomore year, I was able to get a car, and since then, I’ve …
