Rise of the Entrepreneur

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

Hi Guys, We all go to college with the looming expectation by our parents that we will graduate and find a job in industry that not only pays well, but is everything we hoped and dreamed.  Yet in this day and age with the growth of technology and the emphasis on innovation, not only are traditional companies becoming largely outdated, but …

Quit and Quit Often

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hey Guys, Over my four years, I have found that there is a natural gravitation towards people who are passionate about their field of study and genuine in their endeavors.  Genuine has become more and more of a topic for me this past semester.  It is interesting to think that there are more genuinely bad people than good.  There is …

Midterm Survival Guide

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

Midterm season has descended upon USC. Depending on your schedule, your midterms can be spread out over the course of three weeks or, as in my case this semester, one. Three midterms in one week seems like lot. And, okay, maybe it is (especially since Netflix added Gilmore Girls to the list of the TV shows they steam). But when you think …

Ellen Ellen, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Hey everybody! I’m writing this a little later than usual because I was busy having a blast at the Oregon State game.  It was a great bounce back game for the football team, who put together a well rounded effort to beat the Beavers 35-10! Seeing all these displays of athleticism inspired me to write this blog about one of …

EE 150: Matlab, Coding, Compiling Oh My!

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

In the life and times of a biomedical engineer, you take classes that cover multiple disciplines. Chem and bio are obvious staples of biomedical engineering, physics as well. Less well known, though is that as a biomedical engineer it’s a standard to learn a programming language called Matlab. It’s not as complicated as Java or C sharp or C++, but …

CHE 330 Thermodynamics: Controlling Heat

Frankie Chemical Engineering, Frankie Leave a Comment

When I first met older chemical engineers, I can remember them always mentioning “Thermo” like it was a myth or a legend; “Oh you’re a freshmen, that means you haven’t taken thermo yet.” The way I see it now is somewhat like a right of passage as a Chemical Engineer. It’s a challenging engineering class that is an extension of …

The Weekender 2014!

Molly Molly, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

I can’t believe I waited until my junior year to attend my first weekender! The weekender is traditionally USC’s away game against either UC Berkeley or Stanford, when everyone drives up for the weekend to watch our football team win. This year we beat Stanford, and it was one of my favorite memories so far at USC! Me and four …

Bring It On Fall Semester

Emily Emily, Viterbi Class, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Oh, fall semester. The semester of football, football, and football. Oh, and football. All right, so there’s a lot more to the start of the school year than just football, but given the history and culture of USC football, it’s worth mentioning (at least once). This fall is the start of my sophomore year and it’s going to be busy …
