As the semester is wrapping up, it’s time to tie up loose ends and reflect on the semester! This semester has felt like a whirlwind.

I intentionally signed …

Cami Amein Cami, Electrical, Involvement, Major, Study, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life, Women In Engineering Leave a Comment

What people don’t tell you about college. Being close to ending my fourth semester of college has made me realize, I really had no idea what was in store for me. Everyone told me about being independent, surrounded by like minded individual. I think somewhere along the way of trying to find the perfect fit where I could become the …

It’s crazy to think that we’re already more than halfway through the semester! The last two months have flown by and been incredibly memorable, I can definitely say I beat the so-called “sophomore slump.” Myth busted! The semester has been so fast-paced that I’ve barely had time to relax, and though I enjoy everything I’m involved in, really like my …

So get this, it’s around the time in the semester where things are picking up and you start falling behind in your classes. You’re sleeping less and less, you have more problem sets and quizzes to study for, and your GE teacher starts assigning essay’s left and right.

Hey hey! IT’S MY LAST! SEMESTER! AT! USC! It still feels so strange saying that out loud, time has honestly flown by.

Winter break was four weeks of binge-watching my favorite TV shows (Jane the Virgin and Greys Anatomy), suntanning on beautiful beaches, and catching up with family and friends. It was great time to recharge for the second semester! This spring, I am taking an electrical engineering course (EE 202) and a biomedical engineering course (BME 210). EE 202 is all …

Ushering in the new semester

Will DuCharme Free Time, Home Life, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life, Will Leave a Comment

Winter break was a great time to relax and unwind after a busy fall semester. Adjusting to the surprisingly cold Houston weather wasn’t the best welcoming gift – but it was a nice change from LA. Once I got home the first thing I did was sleep – the past week of finals hadn’t done my sleeping schedule any justice, …

Hey guys! Thanksgiving break has been soo good to me. I truly needed a refresher from the routine of school, it was honestly wearing me down a lot. While this semester has been incredibly fun and memorable, senior year has come with its fair share of existential crises, really tough classes, constant caffeination, and many late nights. That being said, …

Why Biomedical Engineering?

Dominie Miyasato Biomedical, Dominie, Major, Research, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Since first arriving at the decision my senior year in high school, I have not changed my mind about majoring in biomedical engineering. Many people will ask what exactly is biomedical engineering. Coming in to college, I did not know even half of what I know now about the major. My definition of biomedical engineering is it is the intersection …
