Why USC you ask

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Why USC Leave a Comment

USC and a school referred to the the farm (Stanford for all that don’t know) were my two first choices.  That sounds kinda weird, but I couldn’t decide between either one or the other. Stanford was big, but the campus was everything I imagined since 8th grade dreams, and USC was a glorious surprise since I never considered it before …

Comm443: Communicating Health Messages and Medical Issues

Lauren Lauren P., Uncategorized Leave a Comment

My favorite class that I’m taking this semester is “Communicating Health Messages and Medical Issues.” In this class, we research and discuss the physician-patient relationship. We analyze case studies that consist of research papers, personal stories or accounts, and TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, ER, and Nurse Jackie. Our class is mainly discussion based, which is especially interesting because we …

Hey All, This semester is really starting to pick up and classes are definitely a-rolling.  I must say that I even in this short amount of time I have come to really enjoy two specific, and very different classes.  On my engineering side, I am so excited for my Senior design project in which we are looking at rapid free-space …

Hi everyone! We’re already on our fifth week of classes for the semester, and it’s hard to believe how fast the time is passing by. I wanted to take a few minutes this week to talk about my favorite class I’m involved with this semester! My favorite class this semester isn’t actually one I’m taking, it’s one I’m a coach …

It has been called one of the most nerve-wrecking courses at USC. Mostly by other AME students, but hey, what’s to be expected when your midterms are upgraded to “terror-quizzes”? Hype aside, Mechoptronics is very quickly becoming one of my favorite classes I’ve taken thus far at USC. As a 300 level AME course, Mechop delves into the heartier subjects …

The Fun in Non-engineering Extracurriculars

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

ASBME, SWE, Engineers Without Borders, SC Racing. These are all great organizations for engineers. And yet, I’m not currently involved in any of these. It isn’t because I don’t like being an engineer or because I don’t think that they’re worthwhile organizations. They absolutely are. But part of the fun in extracurricular activities is that they can be absolutely random and …

Fall Classes and THE WEEKENDER

Ally Ally, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

This semester I am taking five classes: Computer Science, Probability, Enterprise Systems, Physics, and Art History. I was a little nervous about taking four technical classes but so far it seems manageable! My favorite class so far is ITP-320 or Enterprise Information Systems. It’s an intro class to SAP taught by Professor Kale and I like it because it teaches really …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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.
