Being in the Skåne part of Sweden this summer because of an internship, I was lucky enough to witness one of Sweden’s biggest holidays: Midsummer.  Midsummer takes place towards the end of June on the longest day of the year in which the sun can sometimes set around as late as eleven pm.  The Friday before this day, to be exact  June 21st for this …

Summer in Seattle

rob Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

It’s summertime, but the weather here in Seattle has me fooled some days!  I’m four weeks into my internship at Microsoft’s main campus in Redmond, WA, and even though there is, unforgivably, rain in June, I’m loving every moment of it. I’m living in a really sweet apartment in the University District in Seattle (named for University of Washington).  It …

In my true blogging style I am going to start off this post with the random picture of the day. I know it is Friday and Throwback Thursday was yesterday but this pictures comes to us straight out of 1998 or so when my Dad took us skiing. A belated Happy Fathers Day to him and all the fathers out …

Ein Sommer in Deutschland: Working, Writing, Exploring

Hallo Freunden! Wie geht’s? I just looked at the calendar, and apprently I have been living in Dresden, Germany for the past 5 weeks. In April, I accepted an internship offer to work at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (formerly AMD), as a PFA (physical failure analysis) engineering intern. Given that the last two summers I worked internships at Qualcomm, I thought it would …

A Solid Start to Summer

Patrick Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

Howdy! Summer is already well underway but it still feels like it’s just starting. Upon finishing my last final, I left the same day for a long plane ride back to Dallas and began preparing for my two interviews the following day. Shortly after boarding, however, the flight attendant came on over the intercom to let us know that DFW …

Summer Fun at Davis

Archana Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

This summer, I headed to UC Davis to intern at a Nephrology lab, which focuses primarily on renal cancer. So far, I can’t really say I’ve done a lot. I’m still getting accustomed to the lab, and most of my time is taken up following a post-doc around the lab as she does various assays, cell cultures, and western blots. …

My Summer Internship: Modeling Cell Movement

Juliana Juliana, Uncategorized, Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

While the move from rainy Portland, Oregon to sunny Los Angeles, California for school was startling, the move back for the summer has probably been even more of an adjustment. It’s been pretty dreary weather since I got back to the City of Roses (or City of Bridges if you prefer) and I’m definitely missing my LA sunshine! On the …

A Very Unexpected Summer

greg Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

Last summer, I was very upset that I did not get an internship. Therefore, I started working hard since last September at applying to lots of different internships. I looked into the petroleum industry, commodity chemicals industry, utility companies, research laboratories, and even the aerospace industry. I can’t even keep track of how many internships I applied to. It seemed …

My Summer Internship

haley Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

I’m currently in my third week as a summer intern at a mobile platform company called 3Cinteractive, and so far it’s been amazing. I have learned so many new things and have been taken under the wings of the Software Development team. When I first arrived, I was pretty startled- this is not like any “office” I have ever been …

Starting Summer with some Travel!

Lyssa Aruda-2015 Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

So far this summer, I have had the opportunity to do some travel abroad and nearby.  I spent the first two weeks of summer in South Korea with the Viterbi iPodia program.  This experience was really amazing; part of the class was getting to know students from China, Korea, Israel, and Germany, and it was awesome working with these students …

Hey everyone! We are about a month into summer, but I am still reflecting on the last semester at USC, since I actually won’t be back until next spring. That second semester of my sophomore year was key for me in finding the right balance between my work at VARC, my research and my work as a VSA and with …

Lauren Pelo-2015 Lauren P., Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

Mid-step class, while I was going right instead of left, jumping instead of squatting, kicking instead of punching, I was spotted. Probably by everyone in the class for my lack of rhythm, but more importantly, by a USC alumna who was also taking the class. She noticed the USC shirt that I was wearing (probably second to noticing my lack …

A Summer in Los Angeles

morelle arian Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

This summer, instead of going home to Seattle, I decided to stay in LA. I’ve met a lot of USC students who are also staying here – some are taking summer classes, others are doing research, and a lot are doing internships like me. It’s my first summer in LA and I’ve only been here for two weeks and I …

Freshman year was easily one of the most exciting years of my life. However, it was also the longest time I’ve ever spent away from my family.  Living 2,000 miles away from our home in Chicago, I only got to see them over a few major holidays.  My two brothers, Aaron and Elliott, have always been my best friends and …

No Internship, No Problem

Alex Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

As I sat in front of my computer screen pondering what to blog about, I realized that I could use a job. As I perused Twitter to overcome my writer’s block, I loved reading the tweets about neat internships at Disney and GE, and I wished I had taken advantage of similar opportunities. Before rushing to any unfair judgments about …

The Science of Fried Chicken

maisie gwynne Viterbi Summer Leave a Comment

At the beginning of this summer, I went to the North Carolina coast to visit my family. I thought I was getting away from science, chemistry and engineering (if only for just a little bit) but I soon found myself in my aunt’s kitchen working on a science project – fried chicken. My aunt and mom have been trying to …
