Today marks the start of the last week of classes. At the end of this week, I will be half way done with college, having completed two full years here at the University of Southern California. Looking back on these last two years, I am a little nostalgic and somewhat melancholy that I only have two more years to spend …

Being a Woman in Engineering

nataliea Women In Engineering 1 Comment

With graduation rapidly approaching I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my experience at USC, particularly as a woman in engineering. To be honest, I haven’t noticed a difference in my experience compared to my guy friends in engineering or USC in general. While my classes aren’t 50% girls, the ratio is high enough that I don’t even notice …

Wow! I cannot believe it is already the last week of classes! This semester flew by, and as sad as I am to be halfway finished with my time here at USC, I am ready to move into summer.  My classes this semester have been really interesting- especially my separations class (CHE 350).  I found all of this really interesting …

Being a Woman in Viterbi

melanie Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

Being a woman in Engineering at USC has been an amazing experience so far! I always knew I would go into some sort of technical field, and high school got me accustomed to taking classes with significantly fewer girls than guys. At USC, I really don’t even notice the girl to guy ratio in my classes—the collaborative environment encourages me …

USC in a Word: Global

Zach-2014 Why USC Leave a Comment

As I tweeted a few days back, one of the main reasons that I came to USC was in order to see more of the world. Had never left U.S. before coming to @USC. Will have traveled to Honduras, U.K., Argentina, and S. Korea by end of semester #USCmeansGlobal — Zach Gima (@ZTakeo) March 10, 2013 With my junior year …
