Comm443: Communicating Health Messages and Medical Issues

Lauren Lauren P., Uncategorized Leave a Comment

My favorite class that I’m taking this semester is “Communicating Health Messages and Medical Issues.” In this class, we research and discuss the physician-patient relationship. We analyze case studies that consist of research papers, personal stories or accounts, and TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, ER, and Nurse Jackie. Our class is mainly discussion based, which is especially interesting because we …

One of the most challenging but rewarding classes for me since my first year as a chemical engineer has been Reactors.  The class focuses on problems involving the design and operation …

My Favorite Study Songs!

greg Uncategorized Leave a Comment

So I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy listening to music sometimes when I study. I wish I could listen to music while I read… However, it makes it much more difficult to focus on what I’m reading :(. Nevertheless, I still enjoy listening to music while I am working on homework that involves more computation. I always …

I chose to focus on soccer shin guards because I love soccer and …

Stress Management: Dealing with Challenges in College

Hey guys! This week has been seriously crazy so far. Somehow despite the fact that it’s only the third week of classes I haven’t been this stressed in quite a while. Classes are suddenly hitting hard, but mostly it’s been everything outside of my classes: clubs, organizations, and activities that all seem to be happening at the same time. This …

Favorite Study Spot: King Hall (KOH)

Hannah Hannah, Uncategorized, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Most Tuesday and Wednesday nights you’ll find me at King Hall (KOH), located just across from the residential dorm Webb Tower and above the dining hall Cafe 84.  So whether after dinner or looking for a place to study away from the distractions in my apartment, I’d say KOH is my favorite study spot on campus.

My Favorite Study Spots: CBTL and Cups on Figueroa

Juliana Juliana, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

It’s probably pretty safe to say that about 80 percent of the time I study in my apartment. This is partly because I do a majority of my studying in the evenings and I like to be able to lounge around in comfy clothes and have constant access to snack food. I also like to wear my noise-canceling headphones and …
