Dr. Gerald Loeb is a member of the BME faculty here, and it’s an understatement to say that his research is amazing. I’ve seen him present multiple times at events for the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering, and I’ve taken lots of students on tours to his lab for campus visit events, and the research he’s doing never ceases to …

Everyone and their mom is gonna blog about Viterbi Ball because it was amazing (and I totally won king with my awesome Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering co-president Sara as queen, and ASBME won the most spirited Viterbi Org award).

I loved Birnkrant. Everyone who I’ve ever talked to that lived in Birnkrant loved it! (To be fair, I’ve noticed that most people claim their freshman dorm is the best, so maybe you can’t lose? Either way, I definitely won!)   I blogged about the awesomeness of my floor, BK4 last year so I mainly suggest you go read that. And please watch …

I’m kind of obsessed with the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering.

Well, it’s finally here. Second semester senior year! This is definitely going to be a solid grand finale semester.

I blogged about Biomedical Engineering last year, so check that out for a quick primer on how I felt about it then. Honestly not much has changed since then, but I have definitely gained some perspective I’d like to share.
