25 miles west

I’m originally from Arcadia, CA, which is less than 25 miles east of USC’s campus. So I’m only 25 miles west of the house that I grew up in. That said, I had rarely ventured outside my hometown’s bubble before coming to college, so I’m experiencing everything new about Los Angeles at the same rate […]

Going Abroad with Deloitte

Experiences at USC are unforgettable and wonderful, but what about experiences outside of USC? I’ve learned that USC not only provides in-house experiences, but also opportunities for outside experiences. Last year around this time, I was searching on Connect SC for a spring internship when I came across Deloitte’s posting for an International Student Business […]

The web of academic studies

I picked up a minor in Global Communication, which is a joint program between the School of International Relations and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, because I wanted to broaden my studies while at USC. What I didn’t realize was how interconnected every area of study is–whether you’re majoring in biology and picking […]

Levitin, the All-American Businessman

I won’t lie to you–the first day that I stepped into Lloyd Levitin’s class, I was nervous. He has a very decorated business history. Within his 31 years in business, he served as Executive Vice President, Treasurer, and CFO of Pacific Enterprises (now Sempra Energy) and Executive Vice President and CFO of the Southern California […]

Joining Marshall Orgs 101: Which one is for me?

During my freshman year at USC, I was a bit overzealous in joining things–at the involvement fair, I had put my name down on so many email lists that I received well over 30 emails a day on my student account alone! But after sorting through them all and discovering my true passions over the […]

New success

My definition of success has definitely changed from high school. Back then, I thought creating opportunities for yourself meant that you were being successful. I believed that if I could create an opportunity for myself that wouldn’t have presented itself otherwise, then yes, I was successful. Well, I was wrong on multiple levels. Creating an opportunity […]

Getting tech-y

Essentials for college, the tech version: A laptop–Mac or Windows, up to you! I will say that yes, a lot of students spend on a Macbook. And a laptop case! Gotta protect your investments Tablets–helpful in class! They’re not as heavy to carry around and you can get the cool keyboard plug in for it […]

Here at Marshall…

What makes Marshall unique? The thing that sets Marshall apart from other business schools at other universities is its emphasis on practical application. I remember my freshman year second semester, I was freaking out–why? Because so many of the people I looked up to, the upperclassmen and a few of my peers, already had secured […]

Scream & Shout

My favorite USC tradition is the primal scream. It takes place every night around 9 or 10pm the day before scheduled finals. Finals is a time when everybody walks around in the pajamas, strung out on Starbucks and Coffee Bean, holding 3847032 books. The primal scream lets us first of all, let out all our […]
