My Favorite Study Spot: The ARCH Library

Kelly Civil and Environemntal, Kelly, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

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 …

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed watching the football game this weekend as we beat Colorado. Woohoo! Now that the fun from homecoming week is coming to an end, it is time for me to get back in my schoolwork mindset.

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 …

Hey y’all! It’s midterm season, and that means that everyone is buckling down and studying a  lot to ensure we do well on ours tests! Over the past two years, I’ve tried out studying at a lot of different places, constantly searching for that one perfect study spot for me. I’ve gone to the library, my sorority house, my bedroom …

Leavey, Doheny and any Library are your Best Friends

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

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 …

My Favorite Study Spot: Campus Center

Molly Molly, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hey everyone! This week I thought I’d share my favorite study spot with you: the Campus Center. The Campus Center, or CC,  is exactly what it sounds like, a courtyard in the middle of campus with buildings surrounding it. The buildings that make up the CC house things including the admissions center, the USC pharmacy, a food court, art exhibits, …

Study Havens Around Campus

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 …

What is Industrial and Systems Engineering?

Ally Ally, industrial and systems Leave a Comment

One of the most common questions I get is, “What is Industrial and Systems Engineering?” This is completely valid because “industrial” is a pretty general word in itself and then if you google “industrial engineering” you get something along the lines of “optimizing systems” which is just as vague. I like to thinking of it as a degree in problem …

Calvin Calvin, CompSci, Electrical, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Engineering Leave a Comment

Everyone has a different way to “get in the groove” when it comes to studying and doing homework. For me, it really depends on what kind of work I’m doing. If I’m writing an 8 page paper, then I need to be in a quiet, public place where I can do research and restructure my thoughts without distraction. Oh, and …

Rise of the Entrepreneur

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, We all go to college with the looming expectation by our parents that we will graduate and find a job in industry that not only pays well, but is everything we hoped and dreamed.  Yet in this day and age with the growth of technology and the emphasis on innovation, not only are traditional companies becoming largely outdated, but …

School-Life Balance: Making Time for Yourself!

Ellen Ellen, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I think something that a lot of freshmen (and probably a lot of upperclassmen) struggle with is time management.  I don’t mean time management just in terms of getting your assignments done on time, although that is certainly important.  I also mean that it’s really important to have a balance in your life between schoolwork and fun, whatever that may …

Concert in a Hanger!

One of the best parts of living in LA are all the concerts–a lot of which are free! This past week I got to go to Vevo’s Certified SuperFanFest 2014 in Santa Monica. My best friend and I got to have an evening out to see Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea live at a really cool venue.  We headed toward Santa Monica …

The Good Eats in LA

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

As a self-proclaimed foodie, one of my absolute favorite things about LA is the food. There are a ridiculous (read: wonderful) number of restaurants in this city and every type of food you could imagine. Including some you can’t (Korean BBQ tacos? What will they come up with next?). With that here’s a roundup of my favorite restaurants and/or food …

Hi everyone! I just back from my big trip to Panama this Sunday, and it hasn’t even really sunk in that I was just there. I had so much fun going to another country, and it was definitely a nice break from the consistent routine of school. So why I did I go to Panama? As I have mentioned in …

Making Connections through Work Study

Betty Betty, Viterbi Careers, Viterbi Life, Why USC Leave a Comment

Last year, I was fortunate enough to love my work study job and my work study boss. I went into my freshman year knowing I needed to get a job, so I immediately went to the work study career fair the first week of school and applied for 4 jobs, got two interviews, and ultimately got 1 job offer!

My Favorite Study Break: Watching Trojan Football

Sarah Sarah Leave a Comment

Hi everyone! It’s midterm season, and with that, the stress levels around USC can get fairly high. It’s important during this time of the semester to remember to take breaks from the pile of books and just relax. That’s probably the best advice I could give you for when this time of year rolls around. With that being said, I …
