Hey USC! While I am first and foremost a proud Viterbi engineer, I wanted to write a post on my minor, since it’s pretty unique and, in my mind, encapsulates the flexibility of opportunities available here at SC. I have a minor in Healthcare Studies, a program offered by the Keck School of Medicine—it requires a bunch of basic science …

Hi folks!  When you finally settle on a college, everyone will undoubtably ask you why you chose your school. When I first was accepted to USC, I didn’t have an answer to this question. Slowly but surely, however, USC won me over and I could not be happier to be a Trojan. I was not a Trojan fan from the start. …

Hey guys, This being potentially my last blog post, I wanted to talk to you about my college application process and what led me to USC.

Hey y’all, it’s week 6 of Spring semester and things are starting to speed up in pace, especially class. While taking 16 units of hard science and engineering seemed super intimidating at the beginning of the semester, so far I am really enjoying my work load and I am learning some very applicable skills! Out of the 5 classes I …

Welcome back everyone! It’s time to get going with Spring semester and all of the fun (and homework) that comes along with the new year! First off, Winter Break was awesome. Phoenix was unseasonably “cold”, so naturally I was enjoying the 45-50 degree weather, and I was able to relax while also getting some work done. Over the three weeks …
