The Best Spot to Study – Thanks Wallis!

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, Every year it seems like I find a bunch of new study spots!  I recently have grown fond of the Wallis Annenberg building that was recently constructed.  Aside from the beautiful USC architecture expressing a more Gothic-style, the building is at the heart of the campus, making it easy to get food or as a central point to …

Although many like to study at the various nooks and crannies of campus those are not the places for me. My favorite place to study is the CED short for the Center for Engineering Diversity. It is my favorite place on campus because of all the all the amenities offered to its members. The CED is located on the second …

Leavey, Doheny and any Library are your Best Friends

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

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 …

Hey everyone! This week I thought I’d share my favorite study spot with you: the Campus Center. The Campus Center, or CC,  is exactly what it sounds like, a courtyard in the middle of campus with buildings surrounding it. The buildings that make up the CC house things including the admissions center, the USC pharmacy, a food court, art exhibits, …

Study Havens Around Campus

Pablo Pablo, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Engineering, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Although I live off campus, I spend most (if not all) of my waking hours of the day on campus, so I’ve had to figure out ways to get things done in between classes and meetings. Since my study habits are too sporadic, I can’t rely on making a reservation for a study room in Leavey or hoping that I’ll find …

First Meet USC

Frankie Frankie, Uncategorized, Viterbi Engineering Leave a Comment

Last week on Friday I had my first meeting with potential students. It was already a pretty hectic day since I had three midterms this week and a physics homework due in a couple hours. To make matters worse, I ended up doing the wrong HW set, but luckily my professor was nice enough to give me another chance. Side …

Hey Guys! I hope those of you who got a chance to caravan up California for the weekender had a fantastic time!  I have gone twice, and never regretted it.  If you get the opportunity, buy tickets and make the trip!  It is unreal to see how USC comes and conquers Berkeley, San Francisco, and the Bay Area during this …

I’m so excited to be spending my first summer in Los Angeles! I can never get enough of the perfect weather and constant sunshine.

Passover in College

Today marks the seventh day of Passover. Today also marks the seventh day of avoiding bread and wheat-products like the plague. As a high school senior, I often wondered how I would continue observing Jewish holidays while at USC, and the holiday of Passover presents the perfect challenge. Would the dining halls have matzah? Would I go hungry for a …

My Advice to Freshmen: Just Keep Swimming

Entering college, I was told time and time again my first year would fly by. I thought they were all exaggerating. Well, they weren’t. And the scary thing is that sophomore year flies by even faster. I still can’t believe that I am almost halfway done with my time as an undergrad at USC.  During that first year, days blurred …
