Markus Astro Engineering, Markus Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, Every year it seems like I find a bunch of new study spots!  I recently have grown fond of the Wallis Annenberg building that was recently constructed.  Aside from the beautiful USC architecture expressing a more Gothic-style, the building is at the heart of the campus, making it easy to get food or as a central point to …

Hey everyone! Looking back on my semester, one of my favorite parts was my participation in philanthropies on Fridays. I played beach volleyball, was pied with whip cream, and even distributed books to children. These all supported great causes and were lots of fun!
