Tomorrow marks the last day of classes before Thanksgiving break. Although it is only November, classes for first semester are practically over. When we return from break, there is only one more week of class and then finals. So, now is the perfect time to reflect on the first half of my sophomore year. Coming back to USC for the …

Greek Life as an Engineer

Audrey Roberts Audrey, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Plus, Why USC Leave a Comment

When considering colleges to apply to, I sought out schools with strong academic programs that still had dynamic social environments. For me, the social aspect of school meant an enriching arts community, school spirit, and Greek life. USC, of course, is widely known for its student body’s participation in all these areas. I wanted each of these things in a …

Since midterm season (round two) is now in full swing, my “Halloweekend” consisted mostly of studying in the library. I had a math midterm this morning, I’ve got a statics midterm on Thursday, and I have an essay due on Friday. There’s a lot on my plate mentally draining me, so that’s why I was so relieved to have our …

The fall semester is now in full swing with Involvement Fairs, Game Days, and for some midterms have already started. Every year fall always feels super hectic since every week is packed. A lot has happened since the summer and even the start of the semester. Here’s a ~fun~ recap of what I’ve been up to! I flew home from …

Through my fraternity, I was fortunate enough to become friends with Craig, a film major from Minnesota. When Craig invited some mutual friends from Chicago and me to his house …

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 …

USC Theta Tau…Professionalism, Service, and Brotherhood for All Engineers

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 …

Life in my Sorority

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, …
