Alex-2016 Alex, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Welcome back! Without further ado, let the spring semester of 2014 commence. But before we get to the details of this semester, I wanted to speak briefly to my amazing winter break. I will write an entire blog about my vacation next week, but, for now, let the above header photo serve as my first hint. After a great break, …

Student Organization Highlight : Engineers Without Borders

Markus Service, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

    Hey guys! When I first heard of Engineers Without Borders as a freshman I was drawn in by the prospect to travel.  But when I joined the club and had the opportunity to live in Honduras, I realized it was much more than just traveling with other engineers and working on projects.  It is one thing to experience …

Wrapping up The Fall Semester

Alas, the final week of classes are over and done with! This week was jam-packed with final papers, presentations, and projects. In my technical entrepreneurship class, Brenton and I gave our final pitch for the opportunity/venture we’ve worked on all semester to actual investors sitting in on the class. That same morning, I turned in my final piece of script …

Done Already?

Hi everyone! I can’t believe that classes are actually over! This semester seems like it started just a couple of weeks ago. But it’s already been 16! Time has just flown by. This semester has seemed the quickest of any. This semester was a blast. Classes, friends, football- everything was just great. Here’s a picture of my mom and I …

Time Really Does Fly

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well. It is Friday and it is also the last day of classes. I can’t believe that this semester is already over and that all of my classes are already over. This semester has seemed to go by faster than any other, and I guess the old adage is true, time flies …

Winter (Break) is Coming

Please excuse the Game of Thrones reference in the title but I just finished the fifth book and am going crazy about not being able to read the next book until 2015. As everyone says at the end of every semester, wow that semester flew by. I’ve only got a session or two left of each of my classes and …

Looking Back at this Semester Fall 2012

Wow time has really flown this semester.  It feels like just yesterday I was moving in, it’s hard to believe that a whole fifteen weeks of homework, labs, midterms, and fun has gone by!  This semester has definitely been my most challenging yet. Between really getting into some of my upper division coursework and having a full schedule of extracurriculars, …

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! My Thanksgiving was super relaxing! I went home to Seal Beach and hung out with my parents and watched the X-Factor with best friend, Chrissy. It was really nice to be home for the weekend. I got to go Black Friday shopping at South Coast Plaza, a mall near my …

How I’m Spending My Winter Break: AWB Thailand

Samantha Kaplan-2015 Viterbi Life 1 Comment

This fall, as I considered the way I would be spending my winter break, I wasn’t exactly thrilled by the idea of going home to do nothing but sleep and sit on my couch catching up on old seasons of Arrested Development (although that show is quality and any time spent watching it should not be considered wasted).  I started …

More Than “Study Abroad”

kristen-2012 Abroad, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten the chance to meet a lot of wonderful admitted students who have come to campus for Explore USC. One of the questions I’ve gotten a lot has been, “Is it possible for engineering students to study abroad at USC?” Of course, the answer to this is very clearly “yes!” Engineering students can …

Highway 1 Road Trip

On my way back from Valparaiso, IN, to SC, I made a few stops. I first went to visit my roommate Caroline in Northern California. She lives about an hour east of San Francisco in a town called Livermore. We spent a few days at her house, and then we took Highway 1 all the way back to school. The …

Spring Semester at a Glance

arianna-2012 Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Well, it’s back to school. After a nice long trip home, filled with cold weather, snow, warm clothes, food, and plenty of sleeping, it’s back to the books for my final semester. Unfortunately, I’m enrolled in 7 classes. Fortunately, one of those classes is soccer! I’ve played soccer since the age of four, but haven’t played competitively since high school. My …
