Preparing to Go Abroad!

Miranda Jernberg Abroad, Chemical, Miranda, Study Leave a Comment

My semester abroad begins this February! I can’t believe that starting this process in September would lead me overseas just a few months later. This all started when I received an email that said, “Enjoy 300+ days of sunshine a year in Australia!”. The photos linked in the message were of the University of Queensland located in Brisbane, Australia. It …

My classes this semester are all extremely interesting, I’m taking my first two Mechanical Engineering classes (statics and thermodynamics), along with differential equations, a course on French …

Spring semester is off to a great start! I can’t believe my last year of college will be coming up so soon! This semester, I am taking three engineering classes and two theatre classes that will go towards my Dramatic Arts minor. After last semester, I am so excited to get a bit of a break from all of my …

As the beginning of the end of my sophomore year gets under way, I have so much to look forward to in all aspects of my college life. I am going to split this up into three categories: classes, extra stuff, and what is beyond the end of this semester. AME 231 Mechanical Behavior of Materials: I am learning about …

MOR-548: Competitive Advantage Through People

Daniel Donchev Major, Study, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Plus, Why USC Leave a Comment

This is it – I have officially started my last semester at USC. The significance of this moment hasn’t really sunk in for me yet, but I haven’t had too much time to think about it as I’ve been mainly preoccupied with settling into my classes, catching up with friends, and attempting to stay dry in the bombarding rain that …

Shaking Up a New Semester

Luz Camacho Computer Science, Involvement, Luz, Students, Study, Viterbi Life, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

College is a learning experience in more ways than one. Just as you will learn new things pertaining to your major everyday you will also begin uncovering new things about yourself. Which dining hall is your favorite, what food can you get away with eating exclusively for a whole week, how do you tackle laundry day in your new apartment …

Hello! So far, my classes have been shaping up to be an exciting challenge. Im taking a loaded schedule, with a very broad focus on different topics and fields. I am taking: Freshman year spring semester, I took Physics 151 with Professor Peroomian and I loved his class. The lectures were useful, his office hours were amazing, and I remember …

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday season, and are as excited as I am for the new year! It’s going to be a packed one, but at least I’m well rested from my time off. My break was really nice – I got to head home and spend some time with friends and family, and celebrate the …

Spending Winter Break by Taking a Break

Audrey Roberts Audrey, Free Time, Home Life Leave a Comment

Winter break in college offers something I know I will rarely find elsewhere: little to no responsibilities. I savored almost four weeks with no alarms, meetings, assignments, quizzes, exams, and (fewer) emails. The feeling of waking up and thinking what can I do today rather than what do I need to do today provided me with the respite I needed from …

Fighting the Good Fight! My Last Semester

Natalie Monger Computer Science, Natalie, Research, Trojan Spirit Leave a Comment

Hey y’all! Happy New Year. It’s officially my last semester. I have very mixed emotions about this. Of course I will be sad to leave USC, but I am also ready to say I conquered my engineering degree (which I had countless doubts about conquering) and officially call myself an engineer. As a second semester senior, I can attest to …

What’s to Come in 2019

Dominie Miyasato Biomedical, Design Teams, Dominie, Free Time, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Winter break was four weeks of binge-watching my favorite TV shows (Jane the Virgin and Greys Anatomy), suntanning on beautiful beaches, and catching up with family and friends. It was great time to recharge for the second semester! This spring, I am taking an electrical engineering course (EE 202) and a biomedical engineering course (BME 210). EE 202 is all …

Winter Break: Blink and You’ll Miss It

Miles Kay Beach, Free Time, Home Life, Miles, Sports Leave a Comment

Though scientists say that tachyons are some of the only things in this universe to move faster than light, I’d offer that winter break for college students moves just as fast if not faster than these theorized particles. This momentary respite from the busy life of an engineering student at USC allowed me time to refocus, recharge, and relax. Keep …

Ushering in the new semester

Will DuCharme Free Time, Home Life, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life, Will Leave a Comment

Winter break was a great time to relax and unwind after a busy fall semester. Adjusting to the surprisingly cold Houston weather wasn’t the best welcoming gift – but it was a nice change from LA. Once I got home the first thing I did was sleep – the past week of finals hadn’t done my sleeping schedule any justice, …

(And as always tune into kxsc.org/listen Mondays at 1AM PST to hear me DJ) Spring semester is bringing in a lot of new and exciting things for me. I have a lot to look forward to like my classes, the projects I’m working on, club events, and making summer plans! This semester, I get to take some of the coolest …

Winter Break Rocks

Rachel Glait Aerospace and Mechanical, Free Time, Hikes, Rachel, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Right after finals last semester, I  jet-setted off to Utah where I got to visit two national parks! I had never been to Utah before, and I’ve wanted to visit for as long as I can remember . I even let my boyfriend/personal photographer tag along! (He also studies mechanical engineering at USC…both beauty and brains, folks!) Our first day …

The Trip of a Lifetime: My Winter Break

Steven Douglass Free Time, Steven Leave a Comment

For my winter break, I went on a Birthright trip with USC Hillel to Israel. Growing up Jewish in Arkansas, I always knew that I wanted to get closer to G-d and discover the roots of my religion in the homeland. The trip most certainly did not disappoint. We started our trip in northern Israel for three days. While there, …

A Study Break in Europe

Luz Camacho Abroad, Luz Leave a Comment

Being a student doesn’t always afford the most free time, even during times considered breaks. Many students choose to spend their sunshine-filled summers taking extra classes, doing research, or going away for internships. That’s why this winter break, I decided to seize the opportunity to broaden my global horizons by planning my first ever trip to Europe! In total I …
