My Summer Plans

ashlyn-2014 Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

I can’t believe how fast this semester has gone by.  It seems like only a few weeks ago I was moving into my new apartment for my RA position.

 

The beginning of my summer is going to be super busy.  First, after getting approval and making some adjustments to my finals schedule, I’m actually leaving a week early to go to Taiwan for my Engineering iPodia class.  We’ll be in Taiwan for two weeks finalizing our final project, giving our final presentations, and touring a little bit of Taiwan.  From Taiwan I am flying straight into Houston, Texas for my Internship Orientation for my summer internship at Accenture.  I don’t know much about Orientation except that it will be a two-day event where I’ll get to meet other Accenture interns from around the country.  After the second day of orientation I will catch a late flight back to Denver, CO.  The next day will be my first day on the job!  I’m hoping I won’t be too jet lagged from all that traveling and plan on sleeping on the plane.

 

The week I finally get back home is actually my sister’s highschool graduation.  Several of my family members are flying out from California for the week.  I’m really looking forward to my sister’s graduation and I’m very proud of all the hard work she’s done the past four years.  Although she’s going to ASU instead of USC, it will still be fun to give her a hard time when we play them in football this upcoming season.

 

After my internship is over I have to be back at USC a couple of weeks early for RA training.  Before all the other students start classes, RA’s have to undergo about 2 and a half weeks of training.  During these next few weeks we’ll learn all about how to plan a program, safety protocols, and what other responsibilities we have as an RA. It will also be a great opportunity to get to know the rest of the RA staff before the year actually starts.  Since I’ll be at USC early, I will also be helping the new students move in so I may see some of you on move in day!
