My Last Spring Break

Daniel Donchev Free Time, Spring Break Leave a Comment

This Spring Break was a much needed break from an action-packed set of weeks preceding it. The week right before Spring Recess was filled with activities, both social and academic. It consisted of two big midterms, both worth over 25% of my overall grade. In addition, I also had an individual assignment due for my Master’s class “Competitive Advantage Through …

A Week to Reset (and Surf)

It’s crazy to think that we’re already more than halfway through the semester! The last two months have flown by and been incredibly memorable, I can definitely say I beat the so-called “sophomore slump.” Myth busted! The semester has been so fast-paced that I’ve barely had time to relax, and though I enjoy everything I’m involved in, really like my …

Final Push before Spring Break

The past two weeks before spring break have been filled with midterms, problem sets, quizzes, research and a lot of exciting things outside of school! Last week, I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain with all the other Viterbi Student Ambassadors. I have never liked rollercoasters, so Six Flags isn’t typically part of my weekend plans. The VSA trip to …

Already planning your next spring break? Want to travel outside of California and make an impact? Look no further! Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is the program for you at USC!

Ballin on a budget is my college motto. While many college students go the typical Cancun or Cabo route (#basic), the way my bank account is set up… I had to get creative. This year my friends and I, affectionately known as the Junkyard, reserved an AirBNB and took a road trip to Rosarito Mexico. Rosarito is a small touristy …

Hey guys! With Spring Break just around the corner (has it already been half the semester already?!!), a bunch of friends and I have been discussing just what we’re up to over break. A lot of college students like to take that week and hang out with friends, whether that be through a road trip, a group vacation, or even …

Thailand: A Collegiate Spring Break

Alex-2016 Alex Leave a Comment

My final spring break in high school probably sounded very similar to your final high school spring break. Having not yet selected, but already visited, USC, I spent my 2012 spring vacation visiting schools in the American southeast. I took tours at the University of Miami, Georgia Tech, Embry Riddle, and Florida Tech before succumbing to the region’s wicked humidity. …

Why USC?

Howdy everybody! It’s been a fun and relaxing Spring Break this past week and I just got back from Dallas this past Sunday. It was great to relax and hone my golf skills (or lack-thereof)! As it’s approaching April, I know a lot of y’all are making your final decisions for college, and I remember just how stressful that choice …
