It’s midterm season here on campus, but —PLOT TWIST — I’m not dying. Here’s how to survive: 1. I like me a good morning *jog*. I’m no runner (5k = death of me), but I like oxygen and so does my immune system. 2. Yoga. The best part is that it’s a 1-unit class I’m [...]

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 [...]

I am a History major, and one of the big steps is declaring a concentration, which is basically a temporal, thematic, or geographic focus.
