My Freshman Home: Parkside

Hannah Hannah, Suite 0 Comments

I’ve lived in University Housing all 4 years but I still remember a lot of the fun times I had my Freshman year in IRC Parkside. I chose my freshman housing purely based on the different types of amenities available.  I was looking for housing that had: air conditioning and a more private bathroom vs. a community bathroom.  For me, …

Late one night, venture down to Stauffer Hall, a tall building dedicated to research just south of the Ronald Tutor Campus Center.

Why I ♥ LA

Bria Best of LA, Bria, Viterbi Plus 0 Comments

Growing up in central California meant that I never had much to do unless I wanted to drive 2-3 hours to the nearest beach or mountains, so when I moved to LA for college, I was excited to see all that LA has to offer within half an hour drive of my apartment. I definitely was not disappointed. LA has …

LA Essentials

Sophie Best of LA, Sophie, Viterbi Life 0 Comments

There are so many amazing things to do in LA, but honestly some of my favorite places to visit are basic spots that LA is well known for. Two places stand out for me – Santa Monica and Griffith Park. Santa Monica is one of California’s most famous beaches, and for good reason, it’s a lot of fun! Although the …

LA Shows!

Hannah Hannah, Music, Viterbi Life 0 Comments

LA isn’t known for its Broadway musicals and shows quite like New York City is, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any to go to for just as an amazing of an experience!
