Exciting Projects: Bottle Rockets

Ian Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This semester I’m taking AME 309, Dynamics of Fluids. I know what you’re thinking, “ew,” it was my same thought when I saw that I needed to take it this year. The class is challenging, that is no question, but all of the learning that we have done so far has culminated with one really fun project: building a bottle …

Exploration Destination: West Hollywood

Ian Ian, The Best of LA, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

It wasn’t until last year that I really took a look at the opportunities outside of campus, and before this summer I’m not sure I could’ve told you half of the places I know of now. That said, one place in particular has captured my fancy, and that’s West Hollywood. Now, if you’ve heard anything about LA you have probably …

My Favorite Place in LA: Grand Central Market

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

As a self-proclaimed foodie it’s no surprise that one of my favorite places in Los Angeles is Grand Central Market. It’s basically an open floor plan of vendors for food. If you’ve ever been to Philadelphia it’s a like a smaller version of Reading Terminal Market (if you’re in Philadelphia and haven’t tried it, I highly recommend Beck’s Cajun Cafe …

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your weekends as much as I did. It was my mom’s 51st birthday on Friday so I got to spend lots of time with my family.

Hey everyone! After an awesomely busy parents’ weekend, I’m back to tell you guys about another one of my favorite places that I’ve found in Los Angeles: The Getty Museum! A scenic half-hour drive north of campus, it’s always a nice place to hang out with friends or visiting family. The Getty Museum is in the Santa Monica mountains, just …

My favorite LA hobby, going to concerts!

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

Living in the suburbs of LA my whole life, I always had to make the hour (or two hours in traffic) trek to LA to see concerts. Now that I live in the heart of downtown LA, I am just a couple metro stops from the Staples Center, and a few more stops to the Pantages Theater or the Palladium …

My Favorite Extracurricular: Adsum Literary Magazine

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

I’ve already written a post about why it’s good to have activities outside of engineering, but right now I’m going to talk more specifically about my favorite extracurricular: Adsum literary magazine. One of my goals in life (aside from world domination) is to be a novelist. Not necessarily as my primary source of income (at least not to begin with, I would …

You Made What?! 3D Printing

One of the greatest things about USC, in my humble opinion, is the ability for students to see a need and fill it. Last year my friends and I decided that there was a shortage of 3D printing opportunities for students across all majors on USC’s campus. Several schools here- including the Architecture School, Viterbi, and Roski- have access to …

A Guide to the Best Study Spots

Jordan Uncategorized, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Some people are a fan of Leavey Library, some people like their own desks, some people like McCarthy quad. Because I couldn’t choose just one, my favorite study spots on campus are definitely the Von Kleinsmid Center Library and the Philosophy Library in Seeley G Mudd hall. They are a little less well known, but that’s actually what makes them …

What to do for Halloween in LA

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Happy Halloween! As a Seattle native, fall in Los Angeles often doesn’t seem like fall, more like perpetual summer with a slightly lower sun. It eventually gets cold in Los Angeles (translation: lower 60s), but October still tends to be in the 80s. You won’t catch me complaining, but occasionally, I do miss the typical fall weather of home: red, orange, …

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.

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 …
