Los Liones Hike 2016

This past Sunday, September 25th, nine members trekked out to Malibu to hike the Los Liones trail. We had four graduate students and two freshman attend; we are so proud of our member retention and how diverse our club is! It was an especially hot day in LA, but also an especially clear one–so much so that we could see Downtown LA from the top of the trail! We had a great time, and now even more excited for our spring hike when it’s a little cooler out.


Resume Review/Mock Interview Workshop 2016

On the evening of September 22, members of LA YMF (Los Angeles Younger Member Forum) and USC ASCE came together for a resume review and mock interview workshop.

Resume Review/Mock Interview Workshop 2016
Each member received individual attention for personalized resume suggestions.

There was an opportunity to question a panel of LA YMF members about their field as well as a segment for feedback and suggestions on how to curate a proper resume. Later, mock interviews were held in two separate rooms to further prepare students for the types of questions potentially asked in future interviews. Overall, this event provided great preparation for the upcoming Viterbi Career Fair in early October.


Big and Little Buddies 2016-2017

On Thursday, September 15th, we held a mixer for our 2016-2017 Mentorship Program, a.k.a. Big and Little Buddies! We had seven freshman and new members attend with our returning members. We enjoyed getting to know each other as we ate ice cream, played human bingo, and did a speed-dating exercise. Members were asked to answer questions ranging from “Why Civil?” to “If you could get on a plane tomorrow and go anywhere in the world where would you go?” Overall, the event was a huge success, and we were able to pair each little buddy with the big buddy of their choosing!
