As someone from Colorado, I grew up hiking and camping all my life. I absolutely love the outdoors and have continued to go out hiking and camping as much as possible in college. Although our campus is gorgeous, it’s nice to get away from city life and get some fresh natural air. Getting to hiking trails and camp spots can …

Space or Nothing: The USC Rocket Propulsion Lab

Space or nothing: this is the slogan of the USC Rocket Propulsion Lab. I joined the Rocket Lab in the fall of 2013, the beginning of my sophomore year.

I’ve blogged last year about starting a student organization at USC and the process and experiences that I had up until that point—finding co-founders, organizing numerous proposals, identifying contacts and on-campus references, and much, much more. To give some context—in the spring semester of 2015, a few friends of mine and I got together and came up with a goal …
