In the past, the concept of having two majors seemed rather intimidating to me. It was something that I thought I would never do. I guess it’s pretty funny how perspectives can completely change; now, I see double-majoring as a marvelous opportunity that I personally could not continue college without. At the beginning of my first [...]

Imagining myself leaving USC in just a week and a half seems surreal. I’m graduating a semester early, and I couldn’t be more excited to move on to the next chapter of my life in San Jose, CA. But I’m sad to leave the friends I’ve made over my time here at USC. I keep [...]

This semester, I am working as a Program Assistant for a Political Science course, called Applied Politics, with James, a fellow Dornsife Ambassador. We help Professor Crigler, who teaches the course, with the logistic aspects of the class — sending class emails, updating the course’s webpage, and more. What is even more exciting is that [...]

Wow, I feel old. It’s so strange not being the newbie or the new memb or the freshie or the lost fish in the sea anymore. (It’s also weird not eating at Parkside all day everyday.) My freshman year was a blur, to say the least, and unfortunately summer was too. But now, I’m a [...]

All I can say is that there’s no other school like USC. Between classes, after classes, and on the weekends, there are always things going on. 1. Every Wednesday as I walk to chemistry, my routine has become to pass by the farmer’s market right outside my residential building and try a bunch of their [...]

Hi, everyone! As you may or may not know, I am a sophomore in the Thematic Option program at USC. Thematic Option is  an alternative general education program. You must apply before your freshman year to be admitted to the program, but it is open to all majors. This interdisciplinary program is very reading- and [...]

This past spring semester was very busy, but also really rewarding and fun! For the Thematic Option program I’m in, I took a really interesting class called Aural Culture. It involved studying sound from a physics perspective (sound waves and acoustics) as well as music’s cultural implications. For my final, I interviewed a researcher at [...]
