Hi guys! These past few weeks have been ridiculously busy, but I finally finished up my midterms for the semester, and have a bit of a break until finals. There are still projects, a ton of events and of course, finals, but I took this past weekend to chill out and relax with friends. One of the things we did …

Hey guys! We just got back from spring break, and it’s been such a strange adjustment coming back to school. I spent spring break road tripping through the Southwest with my parents, and saw a lot of incredible national parks and took literally over 1500 pictures. I’m forcing myself to save the editing for post-midterm season, but we’ll see how …

Hey guys! It’s Explore season here at SC, and it’s been so much fun getting to meet some of you guys around campus!! Since coming to college, one of the most common questions I get asked is why I picked USC, so I thought I’d dedicate a post on what drew me to become a Trojan. Backstory, in high school …

I Went to Medical School?

Rhea Choudhury Rhea Leave a Comment

Okay, so I’ll admit that this title is clickbait. I’m still an undergraduate student here at USC Viterbi, and that won’t change for at least another year. However, some of my favorite classes I’ve taken on campus have been through my minor in Healthcare Studies, offered by the Keck School of Medicine, and I’ve had a few on the medical …

Hey guys! It’s been about three weeks since the semester started, and already it’s been a rollercoaster of a time. Classes are tough, organizations are really gearing up, and my friends and I are involved in another entrepreneurship competition this semester, so time management is definitely going to be tested a lot in the upcoming months.I realized I don’t really …

Hi guys! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season so far!! I can’t believe it’s already (basically) December, this semester went by so fast. I absolutely love Christmas, so you know I’ve been blasting Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey for the last few weeks straight (also fun fact, Sia dropped a Christmas album?! wHAT?!). LA has a lot of …

Hi guys!! With midterms and exams coming to a close, the last few weeks have been a little more relaxed for me, which, after a very stressful semester, has been a relief. I’ve been doing more fun LA things with my free time, mostly because I missed photography and needed some space from campus. Last Friday, a friend and I …

Hey guys! This semester is going by so quickly, I can’t believe it’s already November! The holiday season is probably my favorite time of the year, but it feels like just yesterday it was August, and now, here I am, jamming out to Christmas music and planning out my finals schedule.

LA Live: Favorite Music Venues Around Los Angeles

Rhea Choudhury Best of LA, Free Time, Music, Rhea, Students, Viterbi Life, Viterbi Plus Leave a Comment

One of my absolute favorite parts of going to school in a city as fast-paced and alive as Los Angeles is the opportunity to explore a vibrant live music scene. So many artists move out to LA to get their big break, get signed to a massive record label, and go on world tours, but for all those artists that …

While I love being on campus and our little USC bubble, one of my absolute favorite things to do is go on roadtrips. My parents always took me to beautiful natural spaces as a kid, and my love for nature and the ~great outdoors~ has grown exponentially in the last few years. If I have a chill weekend ahead, I’ll …

It’s been awesome getting to know all of you, I’ve been lucky enough to meet some incredibly talented and diverse people, and USC is truly lucky to have applicants/prospectives like you all. That being said, …

Favorite Photography Spots in LA

Hey USC! Since my last few blogs have been pretty engineering focused, I wanted to take a break this week and focus on one of my favorite hobbies: photography. I’ve always been interested in photography, thanks to my dad, but I didn’t really get into it until freshman year of college. I finally got a DSLR of my own in 2015, and …

Hey guys! With Spring Break just around the corner (has it already been half the semester already?!!), a bunch of friends and I have been discussing just what we’re up to over break. A lot of college students like to take that week and hang out with friends, whether that be through a road trip, a group vacation, or even …
