Snack Chat! - LIFE AFTER USC: One International's Story
Tuesday, Feb. 12
5 to 7 p.m.

University Religious Center (URC) upstairs in room 203.

Jeff, a former USC international graduate student, will tell us about his time at USC and life now working in the U.S. You and your friends will get a chance to hear how he was able to survive and eventually thrive despite challenges. Bring your questions in this interactive encounter with a fellow international Trojan. You are not alone in your career quest!

We will also enjoy dumplings in honor of Chinese New Year and have a birthday celebration! Invite your friends!

Snack Chat! is two hours of fun, food, and friends for international students. You can stop by, and then leave for your next class, or stick around to make deeper friendships. We start at 5 p.m. by enjoying a variety of great snacks; followed by tasty food of every variety including vegetarian, fruit, sweets, tea and juice.

Sign up here.



Saturday, February 2

7:30 a.m. to 12 noon

Join us on this 3.75 mile round-trip hike into Eaton Canyon, at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains 35 minutes northeast of USC in Pasadena. This trail has been rated an easy/moderate hike. It is fairly flat at the beginning, then criss-crosses a stream, needing the hiker to negotiate rocks and boulders as it moves up the canyon, ending in a waterfall. 
Bring snacks, a liter of water, a light windbreaker, a hat to protect from sun.  Wear sport shoes with good tread and comfortable light-weight clothing.  Depending on the weather, it might be advantageous to hike in shorts, and have some flip flops in the pack if you want to put your feet in the water.  We require that everything be in a backpack, nothing on one shoulder or in your hands; sometimes balancing is required.

$5 is required for transportation, to be given to the driver.  Reservations with your phone number are required by Thursday, January 31.  RSVP below to register. First come, first served, and rides will depend on the number of drivers. Those with reservations will meet around the trees on the north east corner of Hoover and 30th St. at 7:30 am.  If you can drive your car and help transport others, it would be greatly appreciated and you will receive $5 from everyone in your car.  Please let us know if you can drive, and how many passengers you can take.
