My Favorite Student Involvement: Leadership Fraternity Delta Omicron Zeta

georg-2013 Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

As if I’m not involved enough already, I chose to pledge a coeducational professional leadership fraternity this semester. Even though I never considered going Greek (and professional fraternities are pretty far from the stereotypical image of Greek Life), I chose to pledge Delta Omicron Zeta – USC’s Professional Leadership Fraternity. I had no idea what would be in store for …

Football and Friends- My own version of the “weekender”

gavin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This weekend marks one of the greatest traditions in USC football: the “weekender”. For those  who aren’t familiar with it, the weekender happens each year during either the Cal or Stanford game- whichever game is away. Students from USC all travel up to the bay to witness a great spectacle: USC beating up on whoever is unfortunate enough to play …

After checking out my friend Steve’s photo blog the other day about his apartment, I was inspired to show y’all a little taste of the places I’ve lived in at USC during the past 3 years. Freshmen year I lived in Birnkrant Residence Hall, or the BK Lounge as I liked to call it. I lived with my wonderful roommate …

Work Hard, Play Hard

While most of my friends spent this three day weekend off adventuring all throughout California, I found myself pouring over textbooks in Doheny Library in preparation for a week of midterms. But while I was grudgingly studying, I remembered the motto “work hard, play hard” and realized that my 6 straight days of cramming for my challenging exams was merely …

USC Homecoming Week is always one of my favorite times of the year. The week is packed with fun activities and competitions leading up to the football game. As a member of the greek community, Homecoming is especially busy. My sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, was paired up with Sigma Chi fraternity for the week’s events. We had so much fun …

Sophomore year I signed up for sorority recruitment on a whim. I ended up joining Kappa Alpha Theta, and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made at USC. I have so much fun with my sorority sisters, eating daily breakfast, lunch, and dinners prepared by our house chef, Gary, attending Tuesday night Bible study on our new …

USC Engineering: Outside the Classroom

arianna-2012 Uncategorized 2 Comments

All we do as engineers is homework, right? Wrong! We do so much outside of the classroom both inside and outside of Viterbi. Work inside the classroom has hardly defined my college life. Within Viterbi, I’ve been involved with Engineers Without Borders, the Rocket Propulsion Lab, and working for Viterbi during the summer as an orientation advisor. Outside Viterbi, I’ve …

Last night my sorority had its fall themed invite. The theme this time was holiday, so my date and I dressed up as trees and were Arbor Day. I would just like to take the time to point out that Arbor Day is the the least appreciated holiday ever. Do you even know what day it is??? exactly. (neither did …
