Last year, I consulted for SpaceIL, an Israeli space start-up working to reach the moon and win $20 million through Google’s Lunar X-Prize (check out my past blog USC TAMID: A Consulting Organization for more information). While SpaceIL still has its sights on lunar soil, I have moved on to another Israeli start-up: Flytrex. Flytrex specializes in drone development (check …

Why I Love Living Near Downtown LA

Molly Molly, The Best of LA Leave a Comment

One of the first things that I saw when I moved into my freshman dorm at USC was the downtown LA skyline. It was beautiful, but mostly I was surprised by how close it is! Only a 5 minute drive or metro ride away, downtown is full of fun things to do. Here are just a few of my favorites! Events at …

Making Thinking Fun – A Deconstruction of the Ego

Markus Astro Engineering, Markus Leave a Comment

Hi guys, Conversation is perhaps the most incredible, yet confusing phenomenon of our existence.  We communicate with everything around us.  And yet there is no perfect language, no formal system that can clearly define the reality around us.  Just stop and think for a second.  When I speak, your brain hears a fluctuation in pressures and vibrations, translating that into …

Freshman Dorm: My Suite in Fluor Tower

Molly Molly, USC Housing, USC Housing 2014, Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Even though it seems like forever ago, when I was a freshman I got lucky enough to live in Fluor Tower. It’s an on-campus residence hall, located on the northwest side of campus directly adjacent to both the student gym (Lyon Center) and the Engemann student health center. At 11 stories tall, it also gave me a great view of downtown …

What I’m Actually Learning in Class: BME 201

Emily Emily, Uncategorized, Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

BME 201 has the formal title “Biomedical Engineering Practice.” It’s a rather broad title, that could mean a lot of different things. How to get a job in BME, what BMEs actually learn, what the field is comprised of, etc. The class isn’t a traditional class: take notes, do the homework, take the test, lather rinse repeat. Instead it’s a …

I know it has been awhile, but I am finally back to school. Winter break was very interesting and relaxing. I say interesting because it was so much different than the first one last year. Last year it entailed a lot of hanging with friends, but every night encompassed searching for parties and trying to revert back to high school …
