Life After Break

I just got back from an awesome vacation to Disney World and the Florida Keys with my Family for Spring Break 2013! It was truly magical. Now it’s time to get back to school for my last few weeks of Senior year! I have a bunch of fun, packed weekends now that my Grad-Level FDA Regulations class which met on …

USC in a Word: Energy

steve Why USC Leave a Comment

If I had to describe USC in a single word, it would be: “Energy.” What does that mean? School-spirit, motivation, drive? Yes, and more! Ever since I first visited USC for Explore and saw how happy the students were to be here – how excited they were to go to USC – I’ve noticed an almost tangible energy on campus. …

Biomedical Engineers Have Talent

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). Thank you to Lauren for planning such a great week with the Klein Institute for Undergraduate Engineering Life. I encourage …

Almost half our floor was able to reunite last Easter! I hope we can do it again this year!

My Freshman Dorm: Birnkrant

steve USC Housing Leave a Comment

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 …

Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering: Spring ’13

steve Uncategorized Leave a Comment

I’m kind of obsessed with the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering. That’s probably for the best, since I’m one of the co-presidents, but I’d probably be pretty enthusiastic about the organization either way since we’re kind of awesome (which I’ve written about before 😀 – for a fun game, search “Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering” in this site’s search feature …

Steve’s Spring Semester at a Glance

steve Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Well, it’s finally here. Second semester senior year! This is definitely going to be a solid grand finale semester. I’m actually taking the most classes I’ve ever taken at once (6), they’re all engineering, and two are grad classes. Fun story: only two of those are actually required for me to graduate, I just wanted to squeeze as many cool …

Couldn't think of a better capstone to a semester!

Heading into Winter Break

steve Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

The end of a semester is always bittersweet. Finally, all my huge projects will be done and turned in and I can study for the final and then I’m DONE! At the same time, college is going by way too fast and I can’t believe I’m entering my last semester of undergrad! Even though it flew by, I still got …

My Major: Biomedical Engineering (Electrical Emphasis)

steve Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

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. Since writing that blog, I did a summer internship in Information Systems at Amgen, started my senior design project, attended …

I've also got some nerdy apps living on this screen :D

My Life in Mobile Apps

steve Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Time management in college is famously challenging. Throw in document and social life management, and you’ve got yourself an adventure. Whether you are of the belief that smartphones are the cause of or the solution to these increased demands on our time and organizational capabilities, you have to admit that they are incredibly useful. I recently got a new phone, …

My First Biomedical Engineering Conference

This weekend, I had the fantastic opportunity to visit Atlanta, Georgia for the Biomedical Engineering Society’s 2012 meeting. The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is the national parent organization that the Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering (ASBME) is part of. Over three days, I learned about the current state of the Biomedical Engineering field from research, diversity, industry, and legislative perspectives …
