What Greek Life is like for Me

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 …

I’ve blogged last year about starting a student organization at USC and the process and experiences that I had up until that point—finding co-founders, organizing numerous proposals, identifying contacts and on-campus references, and much, much more. To give some context—in the spring semester of 2015, a few friends of mine and I got together and came up with a goal …

Coming to a school where you don’t know anyone can be intimidating, but dorm life really helped me with that adjustment (which I’ll talk more about next week). After a semester in my dorm, I became hooked on the idea of sharing my living space with my friends, so I moved into my sorority! After 5 semesters living in my sorority, …

Lyssa Aruda-2015 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I love October and Halloween and I’ve been to Knott’s Scary Farm and Universal Horror nights for years, but this year I had the opportunity to switch it up and visit the LA Halloween Hayride in Griffith park with my sorority this year! The Halloween Hayride is set up in the hills near Griffith Observatory, and you get to ride …

Hey everyone! After a great summer with #ViterbiAbroad in Rome, I am happy to be back home at USC for a great junior year! This semester I’m excited because my classes are a lot more engineering focused and it seems like it’s going to be a little easier than some of my past semesters. I also have four-day weekends, it’s …


South African Summer And The Start of Fall!

Samantha Kaplan-2015 Uncategorized, Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

This summer was one of the most incredible summers of my life, as I got to spend it participating in a service learning study abroad program in Cape Town, South Africa!  Cape Town was one of my favorite cities, and I am convinced it is one of the best places for a young person in the entire world.  Throughout my …

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, …

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

Sarah Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Entering college, I was told time and time again my first year would fly by. I thought they were all exaggerating. Well, they weren’t. And the scary thing is that sophomore year flies by even faster. I still can’t believe that I am almost halfway done with my time as an undergrad at USC.  During that first year, days blurred …
