See for yourself: “Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a [study group] work.” – …


A Guide to the Best Study Spots

Some people are a fan of Leavey Library, some people like their own desks, some people like McCarthy quad. Because I couldn’t choose just one, my favorite study spots on campus are definitely the Von Kleinsmid Center Library and the Philosophy Library in Seeley G Mudd hall.

Tip 1: Study Groups

Hannah Hannah, Viterbi Class 0 Comments

With midterm season in the air, I’m going to share one of the best tips I’ve received since freshman year: form a study group!  Whether it’s math, science, chemical/biomedical/electrical/civil/mechanical/industrial systems etc. –really any class for any engineering, I’d say wading through homework and projects is much better with a few friends by your side.  After all the saying goes “two heads …

Midterm season has descended upon USC. Depending on your schedule, your midterms can be spread out over the course of three weeks or, as in my case this semester, one.
