South African Summer And The Start of Fall!

Samantha Summer Experiences, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This summer was one of the most incredible summers of my life, as I got to spend it participating in a service learning study abroad program in Cape Town, South Africa!  Cape Town was one of my favorite cities, and I am convinced it is one of the best places for a young person in the entire world.  Throughout my …

Hey everyone! It’s hard to believe that I’m already into the second half of my undergraduate career here at USC, but I also couldn’t be more excited! This first week was a whirlwind of activity, and it’s looking like the rest of the semester is going to be equally busy and fun! Junior year means the start of some smaller, …

Round 2

Frankie Chemical Engineering, Frankie Leave a Comment

It’s the beginning of the new year otherwise know as Round 2 in my books. Fighting sports have always been an interest of mine so Round 2 sounds pretty appropriate to me. But anyways back to the main topic, IT’S SOPHOMORE YEAR, and I’m slowly, but surely getting older. Time is moving significantly faster than in high school; probably because …

What? We’re already through the first week? Man time flies when you’re having fun! This semester’s classes are looking so fun. I’m taking Computer-Aided Analyses for Aero-Mechanical Design (or just AME 308), Dynamics of Fluids, Thermodynamics, the infamous Mechop, and I’m getting into my Entrepreneurship minor with the Management of New Enterprises, and I snuck in the design team tech …

Interning at Flextronics

Calvin Calvin, CompSci, Electrical, industrial and systems, Summer Experiences, Viterbi Careers, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I went back to my home town of San Jose in the Bay Area this summer. I had the opportunity to work an internship in the Silicon Valley at Flextronics, where I worked with RFID technology. You can think of RFID as the barcode scanner of the future; no line-of-sight is necessary and the technology allows us to “scan” many …

Started From the Bottom

Calvin Calvin, CompSci, Electrical, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Despite being introduced to Special Relativity this semester and taking Differential Equations last fall, I would say one of the most confusing things I’ve had to tackle at USC is how quickly the time flies by. I’ve made so many friends and gotten to explore topics like improv and entrepreneurship that I wouldn’t even have known interested me just a …

The Greatest Physics Professor Of All Time

Calvin Aerospace and Mechanical, Astro Engineering, Biomedical, Calvin, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environemntal, CompSci, Electrical, industrial and systems, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

Gene Bickers is a student favorite on campus and is quite possibly the greatest physics professor of all time. I took his introductory mechanics class this semester and was amazed by his mastery of the subject, as well as his dedication to students. Bickers is always helping students out in his office, or in the classroom, and is really great …

My Summer at Accenture!

Lyssa Lyssa, Uncategorized, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

This summer I changed gears a little bit from chemical engineering and interned at Accenture- a technology consulting company.  Before this summer I didn’t really understand what consulting was, and after this summer it is still really hard to explain.  Basically though other companies hire our company to fix their technology related problems! I spent the summer in Norwalk, California …

My Favorite Places to Eat in LA

Betty Betty, The Best of LA, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Before coming to USC, I would always get excited when I visited LA because I knew that meant great food! During my freshman year I took every opportunity I got to go out and try new places to eat. Often times your RA will plan events to take your floor out to dinner, and I highly recommend signing up for those …

It is crazy to think that I am already starting my junior year! This summer went by so quickly; it seemed like just yesterday I was taking my spring finals. As summer comes to an end, I can’t help but look back on how great it was. I was very fortunate to be offered an internship at Kiewit this summer. …

Oh The Places You’ll Go…

Emily Emily, The Best of LA Leave a Comment

One of the wonderful things about USC is that there are so many things on or just off campus that almost everything you need is conveniently located. Because of this, however, sometimes you have to make an effort to go out and explore LA. LA is such a large, diverse city that sometimes the thought of exploration can be daunting. …

Tips for Freshmen

Molly Molly, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

During Welcome Week of my freshman year, I learned a lot: how to properly shake someone’s hand, how to ride a bike while carrying a backpack and a coffee, and how to remember more new names and faces than I ever thought possible.  I had an amazing time, and made friends that I’m still very close with today.  But I’ve …

I’m so excited to be spending my first summer in Los Angeles! I can never get enough of the perfect weather and constant sunshine. I’m lucky enough to be taking two classes that are totally unrelated to anything I’ve taken before: EXSC 205: The Science of Human Performance and WRIT 340, which is upper division writing for engineers.  Both classes …

Playing ice hockey is my biggest passion and my favorite thing to do in my free time. I started playing at 5 years old and haven’t stopped since. I knew that I definitely wanted to continue ice hockey in college but on a club level instead of varsity because I knew I wanted to have time to pursue my other …

Geez, at the end of the summer why does it always feel like August came right after May? However fast the summer flew by, the experiences I had were, to me, nothing short of spectacular. Here are a couple of my highlights: This year was my first year at USC Racing’s competition in Lincoln, NE. We had a 27-hour car …
