So Far So Busy: Student Orgs, Classes, and Football

Ellen Ellen, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

What a weekend! I know you’ve all probably heard a lot about the Weekender by now since it was nearly a week ago, but I have to mention it.  It was such a great game! Clearly, emotions were running high and Stanford certainly didn’t make it easy on us, but we won and that’s all a Trojan fan can ask …

Hey everyone! After a great summer with #ViterbiAbroad in Rome, I am happy to be back home at USC for a great junior year! This semester I’m excited because my classes are a lot more engineering focused and it seems like it’s going to be a little easier than some of my past semesters. I also have four-day weekends, it’s …

Bring It On Fall Semester

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Oh, fall semester. The semester of football, football, and football. Oh, and football. All right, so there’s a lot more to the start of the school year than just football, but given the history and culture of USC football, it’s worth mentioning (at least once). This fall is the start of my sophomore year and it’s going to be busy …

Fall Classes and THE WEEKENDER

Ally Ally, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

This semester I am taking five classes: Computer Science, Probability, Enterprise Systems, Physics, and Art History. I was a little nervous about taking four technical classes but so far it seems manageable! My favorite class so far is ITP-320 or Enterprise Information Systems. It’s an intro class to SAP taught by Professor Kale and I like it because it teaches really …

Kicking off Junior Year!

Hannah Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

We’re back into a new fall semester! I’m so excited this year because I’m not only getting into more chemical engineering classes that focus on my emphasis (nanotechnology) but also more of my consumer behavior minor classes. CHE 487 Nanotechnology and Nanoscale Engineering: I’m looking forward to seeing how nanotechnology today applies to almost everything we use from consumer products …

Hey everyone! Hope you all have had a good start back to school so far. It’s really hard for me to come to terms with the fact that I’m starting the second half of my time as an undergraduate here at USC! I’ve come a long way since Freshman year, and I can’t wait to see how I continue to …

Hey everyone! It’s hard to believe that I’m already into the second half of my undergraduate career here at USC, but I also couldn’t be more excited! This first week was a whirlwind of activity, and it’s looking like the rest of the semester is going to be equally busy and fun! Junior year means the start of some smaller, …

What? We’re already through the first week? Man time flies when you’re having fun! This semester’s classes are looking so fun. I’m taking Computer-Aided Analyses for Aero-Mechanical Design (or just AME 308), Dynamics of Fluids, Thermodynamics, the infamous Mechop, and I’m getting into my Entrepreneurship minor with the Management of New Enterprises, and I snuck in the design team tech …

Tips for Freshmen

Molly Molly, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Orgs Leave a Comment

During Welcome Week of my freshman year, I learned a lot: how to properly shake someone’s hand, how to ride a bike while carrying a backpack and a coffee, and how to remember more new names and faces than I ever thought possible.  I had an amazing time, and made friends that I’m still very close with today.  But I’ve …

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. I’m lucky enough to be taking two classes that are totally unrelated to anything I’ve taken before: EXSC 205: The Science of Human Performance and WRIT 340, which is upper division writing for engineers.  Both classes …

Geez, at the end of the summer why does it always feel like August came right after May? However fast the summer flew by, the experiences I had were, to me, nothing short of spectacular. Here are a couple of my highlights: This year was my first year at USC Racing’s competition in Lincoln, NE. We had a 27-hour car …

5 Reasons Why Taking 5 8AMs Was a Good Thing

Ally Ally, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Being an ISE major (and an engineer in general) I have a strong desire to do activities as efficiently as possible. I’m that ridiculous person that walks on the grass because it is the shortest route and organizes grocery lists so that the items are in order of how I’ll walk around the store. I took this same approach to …
