Spending Winter Break by Taking a Break

Audrey Roberts Audrey, Home Life Leave a Comment

Winter break in college offers something I know I will rarely find elsewhere: little to no responsibilities. I savored almost four weeks with no alarms, meetings, assignments, quizzes, exams, and (fewer) emails. The feeling of waking up and thinking what can I do today rather than what do I need to do today provided me with the respite I needed from …

Winter break was four weeks of binge-watching my favorite TV shows (Jane the Virgin and Greys Anatomy), suntanning on beautiful beaches, and catching up with family and friends. It was great time to recharge for the second semester! This spring, I am taking an electrical engineering course (EE 202) and a biomedical engineering course (BME 210). EE 202 is all …

Winter Break: Blink and You’ll Miss It

Though scientists say that tachyons are some of the only things in this universe to move faster than light, I’d offer that winter break for college students moves just as fast if not faster than these theorized particles. This momentary respite from the busy life of an engineering student at USC allowed me time to refocus, recharge, and relax. Keep …

Ushering in the new semester

Winter break was a great time to relax and unwind after a busy fall semester. Adjusting to the surprisingly cold Houston weather wasn’t the best welcoming gift – but it was a nice change from LA. Once I got home the first thing I did was sleep – the past week of finals hadn’t done my sleeping schedule any justice, …

Right after finals last semester, I  jet-setted off to Utah where I got to visit two national parks! I had never been to Utah before, and I’ve wanted to visit for as long as I can remember . I even let my boyfriend/personal photographer tag along! (He also studies mechanical engineering at USC…both beauty and brains, folks!) Our first day …

A Study Break in Europe

Luz Camacho Abroad, Luz Leave a Comment

Being a student doesn’t always afford the most free time, even during times considered breaks. Many students choose to spend their sunshine-filled summers taking extra classes, doing research, or going away for internships. That’s why this winter break, I decided to seize the opportunity to broaden my global horizons by planning my first ever trip to Europe! In total I …

Winter BREAK!!!

I had been looking forward to winter break for the longest time. Thanksgiving break wasn’t too much of a break because I had massive projects due the following week, so most of my time was dedicated to that. As soon as I arrived back to my home in the Bay Area, I slept at a moderate time and woke up …

I know I already wrote about Thanksgiving break, but there was no way I could just leave out everything I’ve done the past month. From snow trips to watching sports with friends to taking a road trip, Winter Break was nothing but sweetness. Here are my highlights: 1. Snowboarding! Take a trip to mammoth, big bear, or whatever’s closest to …

Tis’ the season to celebrate relaxation! After a long semester, winter break couldn’t have come soon enough. To give a little recap of what this semester entailed, I took classes that ranged from spacecraft propulsion to american cultures. I also started to work at Honeybee while also having some robotics competitions for the USC VEX Team. It was a busy …

I’ve really been loving the “beginning of the semester high” everyone has been enjoying. There’s nothing better than coming back to school energized and excited. 🙂 I …

Making the Most of Winter Break

anya-2017 Anya Leave a Comment

Winter break couldn’t be more needed. After a long semester, pages of essays, challenging finals, we’re all ready for a break. It’s really tempting to want to spend most of break laying on the couch, watching Netflix, eating a bit unhealthier than normal, and sleeping in. This is a valid way to spend break, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong …

Junior year has proven to be a year full of music for me! After coming back from my summer abroad in Madrid, I went to Hard Summer Music Festival. Just last night I went to a Porter Robinson concert at the Shrine (across the street from USC and 5 minute walk from my sorority house). For New Year’s, I’m going …
