Last weekend, I got the chance to explore LA for an assignment for a Thematic Option class that I am taking this semester. Each student has to create what we call an STP, a Sacred Text Project, that engages in issues of equality, justice, and civic prophecy. My classmate Nirali and I needed video footage [...]

I love spring semester. I come back from my freezing cold home (yes, Texas can get really cold!) to the sunshine and warmth of LA, and it feels like the days just get sunnier and sunnier.

Thematic Option is an alternative liberal-arts program for General Education here at USC, run through the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. Students will tell you this program is not for everyone, but all of my classmates [...]

As an ex three-sport varsity athlete, hearing the phrase ‘Hollywood Hike’ certainly did not scare me. If anything, it sounded like a leisurely walk for tourists. When e-board for African-Americans in Health decided to do a social hike with NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), I figured it would be more relaxing than anything; how [...]

I’ve been going through a slew of midterms for the past few weeks (5 midterms in a span of 2 weeks, to be exact), so I really needed a solid study break. Therefore, I signed up with USC Adventure Lead to go on a Sea Kayaking trip in the Channel Islands, part of a larger [...]
