Spring Semester: At A Glance

ashlyn-2014 Uncategorized 0 Comments

I was just thinking about my spring semester and between my classes, my internship, and my new residential advising (RA) position, I realized I am going to super busy.  This semester I’m taking Immigrants in America (a not so exciting GA), statistics (math is math, but the professer seems really good), engineering economy (the first chapters were confusing, but since then it’s …

Spring Semester: At a Glance

It’s still the dead of winter and yet today in LA it was sunny and 70 degrees–one more reminder that, yes, I did pick the right school. It’s been such a blessing to be here at USC the past three and a half years, and I’m sure that this final semester will be just as amazing. I mentioned before that …

My Favorite Student Involvement: Engineers Without Borders

kristen-2012 Viterbi Orgs 0 Comments

I’ve tried a lot of student groups and activities while at USC, and gotten more deeply involved in a few of them throughout the last 3 and half-ish years. While they have all been a lot of fun and have taught me a whole heck of a lot about leadership, time management, and all those important skills, the student organization …

Spring Break 2011: Cabo and Home!

Spring Break—the much anticipated, ever-needed mid-semester vacation!  My freshman year I went home for the week to spend time with my family and last year I went to Honduras with Engineers Without Borders with about fifteen other USC engineering students.  Since most of my high school friends didn’t have the same Spring Break, I decided to take a trip with …

Spring Break 2011: Honduras

Like I’ve mentioned before, I’m involved with USC’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders, a national non-profit organization that provides engineering solutions to problems in developing countries. The USC chapter is currently working on two different projects aimed at bringing clean water to two neighboring villages in rural Honduras. I work with the village of Corral de Piedra, where we have …

Spring Break 2011: Mexico

I just got back to USC and was greeted by a day of freezing cold rain and relentless winds in LA. I really can’t complain though, because I am perfectly relaxed from a week of sun on a Mexican Rivera cruise. Sarah and I left Sunday morning on a Carnival cruise that stopped in Cabo San Lucas and Puerta Vallarta. …

Spring Break 2011: USC

As an athlete here at USC, I don’t have the privilege of going anywhere fun like Cancun or Cabo for spring break. In fact, I haven’t really ever had much of a spring break because I was required to stay put in high school to compete for track as well. Nonetheless, I’ve made an effort the past few years to …

This spring break is (and has been) amazing so far!  My friend Allison from USC and I decided to come to the east coast and visit our friends at a few colleges.  We just got back from Providence, RI where we visited two of my friends from high school.  There ended up being a strange convergence of my high school …

Spring Break has Finally Arrived!

After a crazy busy week, Spring Break has finally arrived! This week I had my final project for my AME 308 class where we had to “build a bicycle” all on Solidworks which is a 3-D modeling software program.  Unlike past assignments in the class where all specifications and measurements were strictly defined for us, the design of our bike …

Back to School

Yes, it is Tuesday morning. As yes, this means I am officially back to school. My light Mondays prevented me from getting back into the swing of things yesterday, so today I will be re-exposed to all my classes and forced to work yet again. However, as a silver lining, school will be over soon enough and I can just …
