I hope everyone’s summer is as great as mine.  In addition to meeting amazing students and parents through our campus visit programs, I have been enjoying as many beach days as possible, a few days off here and there, and I can’t wait for my larger (aka real) vacation in a few weeks.

As summer hits its mid-point, I am happy to announce that Viterbi Voices: The Podcast will be making its SEASON 9 PREMIERE on July 30.

If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts…. or, if you have another player/app you enjoy, check out our podcast feed-site for more details.  Subscribing makes sure you never miss an episode. We will be releasing a new episode every week for the rest of the year, including some important episodes to admission and applying as an applicant to Fall 2024.

Viterbi Voices: The Podcast has nearly 300 episodes available in our archive, and you can listen to whichever episodes strike you as interesting.  It is filled with faculty discussions, research explanations, student organization overviews, and current student panel conversations.  I am sure you will get a broad understanding of our community here, and how you may fit.

Happy Listening!
