My Last Blog: Graduating from USC and Looking Forward

nataliea Viterbi Life, Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe my time as an undergrad at USC is coming to an end as I’m graduating in 19 days. I am so thankful for USC for giving me so many opportunities over the years and making my college experience truly something I could’ve only found at USC. So here goes, my final blog after three years as a Viterbi Student Ambassador.

I’ve had an incredible time at USC. Between joining SWE and the club lacrosse team my freshman year to becoming SWE VP of Communications and lacrosse team President, doing undergraduate research in sustainability and starting Master’s classes in Green Technologies my senior year, joining a sorority my sophomore year and studying abroad in Madrid that summer, interning with Boeing last year and Turner Construction this summer, and being a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a Viterbi Ambassador, to making the best of friends over the years, I never thought I would be able to do all of these things in college. Before I graduate, I have two group projects and presentations, my sorority’s senior week, my final Gamma Phi Beta invite, a few USC senior traditions, and two finals. I’ve been enjoying my last semester and catching some last events at USC. Here are some of my favorites:

I met Dean Yortsos, President Nikias and his wife at the Viterbi Awards last Wednesday!

Went to my last Admitted Students Program at USC:

Got my graduation gift from the Civil Engineering department:

Gave my last Civil Engineering (Building Science) presentation with my Building Science studio class. It’s been a great 4 years with these guys!

While I am graduating, I’m not leaving USC just yet. After interning this summer in San Diego for Turner Construction, I’ll be coming back in the fall for one more year to finish my Master’s in Green Technologies. I will be joined by a few other graduating VSAs, and I know we’ll have a great year together.

Finally, here’s a preview for graduation!

Fight on forever,

Natalie
