Frankie Chemical Engineering, Frankie, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Included in sed perks are awesome lasers, playing with acids, FIRE and simply just working with cool machinery. This is only my perspective of the things I have done, but there are so many more cool …

You will head off to college ready to get into your studies, but you have to realize that college is so much more than just trips to the library and equations. When you finally step onto campus, you will realize that college …
