Cheering on our team! Compared to some of the other engineering major classes, the civil engineering class of 2019 is relatively small with probably about 25-30 students- which can be a good or bad thing depending on who you ask. I’m one of those people who thinks it’s a good thing. I’ve gotten so used to having classes with the same …

Happy Friday!! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been looking forward to the weekend since Monday. Now that midterm season is winding down, it’s about time we spend some time getting some well-deserved rest! So what does a weekend in LA look like?

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 …

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 …

The transition from high school to university is a huge one as is, but I also moved countries when I was moving into my freshman year dorm. Two years before that I moved from Santiago, Chile to Vancouver, Canada and I moved between countries a handful of other times too. As an International student, there are a few extra things …

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 …

Wake Up! It’s Gameday!

Hey everyone, hope you March is off to a good start and that your weather is starting to warm up! Things are in full swing on campus with admitted student events, scholarship interviews, and normal day-t0-day shenanigans, so naturally I’ve been crazy busy, but still enjoying every bit of it. As I’m moving further into my USC “career” it’s been …
