This week was crazy both inside and outside of class! It was a hectic week of midterms and projects, and I was also trying to plan for a smooth transition into spring break! On top of that, there was another animal study in my research lab on Tuesday – more on that later in the blog!

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 …

Hey all! I have lived both in University-owned housing as well as private housing throughout my college years.  In my freshman year, I lived in Marks Hall, sophomore year in Troy East, and now I am currently living on 3oth street, one block from campus.  In all instances, I have had a positive and painless experience!

lauren p. Lauren P., Uncategorized Leave a Comment

For my first project in BME 416: Regulation of Medical Devices, I got to choose a specific medical device that I wanted to improve, then research existing patents to see what steps I would need to take to create my own, reinvented version of that chosen product. I chose to focus on soccer shin guards because I love soccer and …

Stress Management: Dealing with Challenges in College

juliana Juliana, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

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 …

Hey Guys! As an engineer, I have come to really value my weekends and the free days where I can explore Los Angeles and go to my favorite food, beach, and hang out spots!

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 Spot: Urth Caffe!

lauren p. Lauren P., Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

USC has a few beautiful libraries that many of my friends love studying in because it makes them feel like they go to Hogwarts. Although these libraries make the dream of attending Hogwarts feel like it is almost a reality, I realized that if I’m studying in one of those libraries, I spend most of my time dreaming about Hogwarts …

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 …

At USC, there are a variety of study spots. For the all-night studiers, there is Leavey Library. For the hungry studiers, there are the tables at the Tutor Campus Center. For the traditional-library studiers, there is Doheny Library. And for the engineering studiers, there is Salvatori Computing Lab. But for those studiers who also want to get a tan while …

One of my favorite things about USC is the variety of places to study! Changing up study spots keeps doing homework interesting. One of the advantages of going to school in Southern California is that the weather is almost always nice. I love studying outdoors as much as possible.
