I decided to take Writing 340 for Engineers over the summer.  Writing 340 is a required class for all upperclassmen at USC, and …

My Favorite Organization: USC Women’s Ice Hockey

ellen Ellen, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus Leave a 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 …

Philanthropy Phriday

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.

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 …

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.

My Best Advice to Freshmen- Don’t be Afraid to Ask For Help

sarah bass Lyssa, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I’m going to start by saying that everyone at USC is really smart- everyone I’ve met including myself was a top student in high school who got good grades and did well.  In general a lot of people were the ones that got asked to help but never had to ask for help.  Engineering school is different.
