I love USC’s is the many extracurricular opportunities that are offered on campus. In engineering, ‘hands on’ experience is the most valuable that you can obtain. When I think about experience I think about design teams, and when I think design teams I think USC Racing. USC Racing builds a new Formula style car from scratch every school year, in preparation …

Alex Alex, Summer Experiences Leave a Comment

Today marks the start of the last week of classes. At the end of this week, I will be half way done with college, having completed two full years here at the University of Southern California. Looking back on these last two years, I am a little nostalgic and somewhat melancholy that I only have two more years to spend …

Philanthropy Phriday

jacquie Jacquie, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays. I played beach volleyball, was pied with whip cream, and even distributed books to children. These all supported great causes and were lots of fun! I wanted to share some of those experiences with you.

Passover in College

Alex Alex, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Today marks the seventh day of Passover. Today also marks the seventh day of avoiding bread and wheat-products like the plague. As a high school senior, I often wondered how I would continue observing Jewish holidays while at USC, and the holiday of Passover presents the perfect challenge. Would the dining halls have matzah? Would I go hungry for a …

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

sarah bass 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 …

jacquie Jacquie, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone! When I first decided that I wanted to apply to college as an engineering major, I started to worry about being a woman in such a male-dominated field.

sarah bass Sarah, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

I still get looks of surprise when people ask me what I’m studying and my response is that I’m a chemical engineer. These shocked expressions are typically followed by a series of questions such as the following: No, what are you really studying? Really? What’s it like to be a girl in a field so strongly dominated by males? But …

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 all! I still remember being a senior in high school trying to juggle sports, school work, and college applications.  It is a time of stress, but anxiety to learn where you will be taking your talents next year.  There are so many stories of the perfect college fit, the ideal major, or myths about how to get into colleges. …
