It’s hard to believe that it’s already the second week of spring semester. This semester is going to be incredibly busy, but a lot of fun at the same time. Here’s a brief preview of what I’m going to be doing this semester!
This semester, I’m taking Viscous Flow, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, Nanostructured Materials, and Chemical Engineering Laboratory. In addition, I’m doing directed research for course credit under Professor Gupta.
I’ve joined a new research team this semester under Professor Malancha Gupta, who was my professor for the section of Freshman Academy I taught this past fall. I’m going to be working under her for my directed research course credit for my nanotechnology emphasis. My research is going to be focused on developing fast drying and environmentally friendly/organic nail polishes using nanotechnology.
Order of Omega:
Order of Omega, the Greek Honors Society, has our main event this semester—the Greek Leadership Conference. It’s coming up in two weeks, and the executive board is hard at work planning for it. The conference brings together the executive boards of the fraternities and sororities, as well as Panhellenic and IFC, to discuss leadership and the role of the Greek community at USC.
Spring semester is always an exciting time for AIChE, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, because spring semester is when the freshmen chemical engineers really start getting into their engineering classes. We’ve got lab tours, industry nights, and social events like bowling planned throughout the semester.
