I seriously cannot believe it is almost the end of my junior year! It’s definitely surreal watching the Viterbi seniors experience their multitude of “lasts” knowing that I will be in that place next year. For today I’ll share some awesome events I’ve attended that usually wrap up the semester each year. Going to these events reminded me how absolutely …

Hi guys! These past few weeks have been ridiculously busy, but I finally finished up my midterms for the semester, and have a bit of a break until finals. There are still projects, a ton of events and of course, finals, but I took this past weekend to chill out and relax with friends. One of the things we did …

This past weekend I participated in ASBME’s Makeathon, an annual 48-hour hardware competition in which teams of four to five individuals collaborate to address a medical challenge. At 6 PM on Friday, the twelve participating teams were briefed on the prompt that would be consuming their time and efforts for the next two days. This year, teams were tasked with …

Whatever you celebrate, USC has something in store for you. Whether it be an ugly sweater contest to a huge bonfire in the middle of the lawn, this holiday season is full …

Hi guys!! With midterms and exams coming to a close, the last few weeks have been a little more relaxed for me, which, after a very stressful semester, has been a relief. I’ve been doing more fun LA things with my free time, mostly because I missed photography and needed some space from campus. Last Friday, a friend and I …

This past weekend was the Viterbi Student Expo, which was a chance for prospective students to come check out Viterbi and see what the school is like.

Nathan Alvarez Campus Events, Free Time, Involvement, Nathan, Social & Diversity

Since midterm season (round two) is now in full swing, my “Halloweekend” consisted mostly of studying in the library. I had a math midterm this morning, I’ve got a statics midterm on Thursday, and I have an essay due on Friday. There’s a lot on my plate mentally draining me, so that’s why I was so relieved to have our …

A Parentless Parent’s Weekend

Nathan Alvarez Campus Events, Free Time, Nathan, Sports, Trojan Spirit

This past weekend was Trojan Family weekend, so the tailgates and stadium seats were filled with just as many parents as students. Everywhere you turned, you could see students excitedly introducing their parents to their friends, taking family photos, and brainwashing parents to “fight on”. However, I didn’t do any of these things because my parents weren’t able to make …

Wake Up It’s GAMEDAY

Celeste Goodwin Campus Events, Celeste, Free Time, Sports, Trojan Spirit, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Plus, Why USC Leave a Comment

It’s fall semester, which only means one thing… TROJAN FOOTBALL. There is a reason why barely anyone at USC studies abroad in the fall, why club events are all on Sundays, and why campus is covered in cardinal and gold almost every Saturday by 7 am. Game day is an event that must be seen in person, but to give …

“Join the Club!”

It feels sooo good to be back in LA! As much as I enjoyed my summer in Kansas City, it doesn’t compare to living less than 30 minutes from the beach. I got right back into the swing of things my first week of classes- catching up with classmate-turned-friends and going to events on campus. The Involvement Fair, where all …

Off to College, Now What?

Its August, which means it’s about that time where recently graduated seniors are slowly packing up their rooms and getting ready to start their new chapters, and for some that means becoming a Trojan! I’ll be starting this fall as a junior (oh how time flies), but I still remember coming in as a freshman not knowing much, and desperately …

Welcome to Welcome Week

I remember moving into USC like it was yesterday…. even though it was 3 years ago (yikes). I was so excited to be at college, because like it’s college, and trying really hard to not also show how extremely terrified I was. Actual move in day was ridiculous because 1. meeting my new roommate 2. trying to actually move in …
