While everyone was away at the weekender (a lot of people travel to San Francisco every year to watch either the Cal game or the Stanford game, what a devastating defeat we had this week), I found myself with some time to catch up on homework and try to get ahead for a very busy upcoming midterm schedule. I started …

Yesterday, I finished my last class of my undergraduate education. In exactly 2 weeks I will be graduating, with only 4 finals and a handful of projects/papers between me and my bachelors degree. It’s definitely a bittersweet time — I’ve enjoyed my time at USC so much that I’m sad to be leaving, but at the same time I’m excited …

As a Senior, I’ve taken a wide range of classes. From grueling prerequisite math and science classes like Differential Equations and Physics, to more fun elective classes like Intro to Adobe Photoshop and the Film Symposium, I’ve covered quite a few subject areas. Overall, I’ve really been enjoying my upper division Industrial & Systems Engineering classes, but in order to take those …
