My Summer Plans: Viterbi Overseas in London

Emily Emily, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

It’s really hard for me to believe that it’s the second to last week of school and that I’m now halfway done with college. Well, aside from all my finals. But I think the weirdest thing about college is how fast it goes. I’ve done a lot this semester and yet it still feels like it’s flown by. From organizing …

There’s never a dull night in LA.  Just last Thursday, some of my closest friends and I headed over to Pomona to see Odesza perform at the Glass House for just $25!

Tips and Tricks to Freshmen Year

Frankie Chemical Engineering, Frankie, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hello newbies and freshmeat. I am just messing around; you won’t get the same treatment as some of you did high school, but you will still be very noticeable on campus. You will be the kids looking lost on the first couple days of school and you might walk in the wrong classroom once or twice, but trust me in …

Favorite Post Midterm De-stressors

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 …
