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.

Being a Female in Viterbi

lauren h. Lauren H., Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

Whenever I mention to people that I am studying engineering, they always seem to comment on the fact that I am a female studying engineering, a traditionally male-dominated field.  Surprisingly, this is something I rarely notice in my day-to-day life.

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 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. …
