The Happiest Study Break on Earth

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

As midterms wind down, I keep thinking of what I am going to do for myself to take a little relaxing break before finals begin. My favorite post midterms study break is going to Disneyland! Its always important to take time for yourself in school, because you can easily get caught up in needing to always study, so taking a …

Molly Molly, The Best of LA, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

As I talked about last week, I have great hideaway spots on campus where I can get work done without sacrificing the great views of campus. But sometimes, I love to get off campus and go explore what’s around USC, since I’m not from the area. My sophomore year, I was able to get a car, and since then, I’ve …

Throughout your life, whether it be a regular day job at a gym, applying to college or looking for a professional job, you will have to go through various interviews. While some people find that interviewing is one of their strengths, many people see it as a nervous experience that they rather avoid, but today ladies and gentlemen, I’m going …

USC Hack Nights takes place every Thursday from 8PM – 1AM. This is where students come to work on their out-of-class projects with a supportive community and unique resources.

The Best Spot to Study – Thanks Wallis!

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, Every year it seems like I find a bunch of new study spots!  I recently have grown fond of the Wallis Annenberg building that was recently constructed.  Aside from the beautiful USC architecture expressing a more Gothic-style, the building is at the heart of the campus, making it easy to get food or as a central point to …

Lyssa Lyssa, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I love October and Halloween and I’ve been to Knott’s Scary Farm and Universal Horror nights for years, but this year I had the opportunity to switch it up and visit the LA Halloween Hayride in Griffith park with my sorority this year! The Halloween Hayride is set up in the hills near Griffith Observatory, and you get to ride …

Hey everybody! Hope you’ve all had a good week.  In this blog, I’m going to talk a little bit about my favorite study spot on campus: Doheny Memorial Library. For most of my day to day homework, I like to work in my apartment, either at my desk or on my living room couch.  I like working at home in …

Hannah Hannah, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Sometimes the nerves before a test just aren’t enough to keep me going so it’s nice to have a cup of coffee within an arm’s reach– and I don’t have to go far!  Some of the my favorite coffee spots to study are: 1. Starbucks: 3584 S. Figueroa St. Just outside of campus, Starbucks is the go to place for …

Although many like to study at the various nooks and crannies of campus those are not the places for me. My favorite place to study is the CED short for the Center for Engineering Diversity. It is my favorite place on campus because of all the all the amenities offered to its members. The CED is located on the second …

At USC we are lucky enough to pretty much one of the best weather systems in the world (check this out if you don’t believe me) so I like to take advantage of that and study outside as much as possible. The fresh air and sunshine makes studying a thousand times better. Not a bad place to be doing homework. #ViterbiLife …

Since I am a Civil Engineering (Building Science) major, I take a studio class in the architecture school every semester. This causes me to spend a lot of time at the architecture school! One of my favorite study spots on campus is the Helen Topping Architecture and Fine Arts library, which is located in the basement of Watt Hall. I …

I Don’t go Far to Study!

Betty Betty, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

While I look over everyone’s favorite study spot this week, I realized, I don’t like to go far to study. As Rory Gilmore said in a Gilmore Girls, “Libraries are too quiet and drafty,” so I avoid libraries and just stick to the comfort of my bed room. Occasionally, I will change up the scenery and will go to the …

As an an engineer and as a college, you will spend a lot of week day nights studying or doing work, but you got to find your special place where you study and get work done. Some people like staying home, going to a classroom or working outside, but for me, I need to be in a quiet area away …

Pablo Pablo, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Although I live off campus, I spend most (if not all) of my waking hours of the day on campus, so I’ve had to figure out ways to get things done in between classes and meetings. Since my study habits are too sporadic, I can’t rely on making a reservation for a study room in Leavey or hoping that I’ll find …
