I developed my time management skills a little more and was able to finish out this semester strong while also planning …

Alex Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

In my freshman-year fall semester, my Thursdays went like this.

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

The best thing about midterms is the relief when they’re over, particularly when you have really busy weeks. I just finished three midterms this week and even though I was confident in my knowledge of the material, tests tend be stressful for everyone. Sometimes it can be difficult to wind down after all your tests are done. Here are my …
