Gamedays: More Than Just Football

Sophie Campus Events, Sophie, Sports, Trojan Spirit, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

Like many USC students, football gamedays are a highlight of my fall semester. On Saturdays when there is a football game, the whole campus will come alive. I’m not the most avid football fan myself; usually I have to ask how were ranked that day or if there’s any news about the players and whatnot. But as much as gamedays …

A Day in LA: Downtown

Juliana Best of LA, Juliana, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hey there! Hope you’re having a great week! Today I’m going to talk about one of my favorite parts of LA: Downtown. I think downtown LA, or “DTLA” as it’s colloquially described, sometimes gets overlooked simply because LA has so much to offer. However, it’s one of my favorite places in the city, and certainly one of the places I’ve explored the …

Alex Alex Leave a Comment

Let’s picture the scene: you are a high school student from Texas, the Midwest, the Pacific Northwest,  the East Cost – somewhere not Southern California. You’re on vacation from school, and you are lucky enough to be conducting a collegiate road trip of California.

LA Shows!

LA isn’t known for its Broadway musicals and shows quite like New York City is, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any to go to for just as an amazing of an experience! One of my favorite things to do around LA is to find shows to go to and within the past three years I definitely have some highlights. …

Hey everyone! This week I want to give a shout out to weekends, a time of endless (two days) opportunity. Some other students have formed a picture of day-to-day life in Viterbi, but what about when school’s off? What do weekends for engineer look like? Honestly, they can look like anything, especially if you’re willing to try new things. Some of …

Hey everybody! So today’s blog is going to be about exploring Los Angeles this summer without a car and on a budget I like to describe as “hilariously tight.” In my last blog, I mentioned coming back to USC a month early to do research. A friend in my lab and I challenged ourselves to explore something in Los Angeles every …

How California Stole My Heart

Daisy Daisy Leave a Comment

What’s life like for a Texan in California? Well, it’s amazing to say the least. I love Texas, but California, Los Angeles in particular, has stolen my heart. Everything about Los Angeles reminds me of why I decided to go to USC. You cannot beat the atmosphere of one of the largest cities in the nation. It is the perfect …
