My Favorite Involvement: Women’s Club Ice Hockey

One of of my absolute favorite involvements at USC is Women’s Club Ice Hockey. I have been on the team since my freshman year and currently I’m serving as the captain of the team! First hockey practice was definitely a success! Newbies all seemed to have a great time, can't wait for this season. #wice #ViterbiPlus — Kelly Lynch (@KellyLynchUSC) …

Looking Back on My Summer

Ellen Computer Science, Ellen, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

This past summer got off to a great start.  About a week after school ended, I was right back in the classroom taking CSCI 170, a discrete math class, and CSCI 104, a programming class in C/C++ about data structures.  Taking summer classes was such a great decision! I was able to take these classes with very small class sizes, …

My Favorite LA Activities

Ellen Ellen, The Best of LA, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

Growing up less than an hour outside of Downtown LA, I had the opportunity to experience a lot of what LA had to offer before I even came to USC.  Now that I live in the heart of LA, I’m even closer to everything I enjoyed before.  I also get to discover even more things to do! Before college, one …


My Favorite Organization: USC Women’s Ice Hockey

Ellen Ellen, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus 1 Comment

One of my favorite activities that I have become involved in is the USC Women’s Ice Hockey team.  The girls from the team became some of my closest friends here at USC as soon as I joined. Though I’ve been nearly obsessed with hockey for quite a few years now (Go Kings Go!), I’d never played hockey a day in …

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

Sarah 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 …

Hey! It is about that time again when all the high school seniors need to decide which college to attend in the fall. It doesn’t feel too long ago that I was making the same decision. Like everyone else, I was torn between several competitive engineering schools. In the end, I picked USC for a few main reasons. I thought …

Being a Woman in Engineering

natalie Women In Engineering 1 Comment

With graduation rapidly approaching I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my experience at USC, particularly as a woman in engineering. To be honest, I haven’t noticed a difference in my experience compared to my guy friends in engineering or USC in general. While my classes aren’t 50% girls, the ratio is high enough that I don’t even notice …

Hey everyone! I hope you have had enjoyable weeks. I took a week off from blogging to take a trip to Mexico for spring break and had a great time! Now that I’m back in the groove of things, I cannot believe this school year is already coming to an end, and I will be a junior before I know it. …

Saturday’s a rugby day! While I love all of the organizations that I am involved in at USC (and wrote about Engineers Without Borders last year),  I have been involved with the USC Men’s Club Rugby team since I began college freshman year. Through rugby I have made some amazing friends and been able to really augment my overall experience …

My Favorite Non-Academic USC Activity – Intramural Soccer

Lauren Pelo-2015 Lauren P., Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

In high school, my club soccer team took up a huge portion of my time outside of class. I have played soccer since I was in Kindergarten, and it was definitely something that I was not ready to give up. Coming into college, I was worried that there wouldn’t be any opportunities for me to play soccer in the same …
