Why USC you ask

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Why USC Leave a Comment

USC and a school referred to the the farm (Stanford for all that don’t know) were my two first choices.  That sounds kinda weird, but I couldn’t decide between either one or the other. Stanford was big, but the campus was everything I imagined since 8th grade dreams, and USC was a glorious surprise since I never considered it before …

My advice to Freshmen

Josue Josue, The Best of LA, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

As my first year at USC comes to a close, I am constantly in a state on nostalgia. I miss those first few weeks when i first came on to campus. I remember being overwhelmed by all the opportunities and all the people that already knew what they wanted to do. Being a first generation college student I didn’t know …

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. …

Summer Plans: New Adventures in LA

Molly Molly, Summer Experiences, The Best of LA, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I’m so excited to be spending my first summer in Los Angeles! I can never get enough of the perfect weather and constant sunshine. I’m lucky enough to be taking two classes that are totally unrelated to anything I’ve taken before: EXSC 205: The Science of Human Performance and WRIT 340, which is upper division writing for engineers.  Both classes …

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 …

Ally Ally, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

SC Outfitters: I’ve always been an outdoorsy person and as a way to ensure that I would still be able to hike I joined SC Outfitters. The club puts on many trips throughout the year guided by other USC undergrads so it’s a great way to get outside and meet more people. This year I went on a couple trips, …

Born in the Bay, Educated in LA

Ally Ally, Why USC, Why USC 2014 Leave a Comment

I grew up in Palo Alto, California, most famous for Stanford University, being in the middle of Silicon Valley, and James Franco. I love my home and I wasn’t sure how L.A. would compare, but after being here for almost a year, I am positive that L.A. (and specifically USC) is the perfect place for me to go to college. …

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 …

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 …
