Being a Woman in Engineering

nataliea 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 there! I can’t believe we are so far into the semester – I have already taken my first midterm! With classes picking up and midterms starting, I have been looking for ways to get out of the library and get some exercise. And so I went to the tennis courts at USC to play a few games this past …

Until last week, I had never seen a hockey game, ever. Growing up in Austin, Texas, and attending Westlake High, traditionally a powerhouse 5A football team (Drew Brees played for Westlake and Friday Night Lights was filmed at our stadium), I had the mindset that football was life.

For most of the country, the fall season is highlighted by the changing colors of the leaves, strolling through pumpkin patches to find the perfect jack-o-lantern, or drinking apple cider while watching the days slowly get shorter. But in Southern California, with the never-changing 70 degrees and sunny weather forecasts, fall is highlighted by college football, USC’s official religion (at …

One of the most important decisions of my freshman year was joining the USC Men’s Crew team; I joined because I was interested in rowing, but I would have never guessed the amount of technique, discipline, and skill that it required. Originally, as most people do, I thought that rowing was mainly an upper body sport, but I quickly learned …

If I had to give one piece of non-academic advice to any USC freshman, I would definitely recommend taking advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities at USC’s Lyon Center. The Lyon Center has the equipment or room for any activity you may want to do, including four full-size basketball courts, two weight rooms, a long-course swimming pool, and a rock-climbing wall. …
