This week I resumed my old job of working in a law office for a family law attorney.  I did this job for almost 4 years before leaving for UCLA and I was able to come back in the summer to do more work.  The attorney I work for is a Bruin Alumni, both Undergrad and Law School.  This past week, she told me, “I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to breathe and ask you how school was.  How did you like UCLA?  Was it great?”  We spent the next 20 minutes talking about how much we loved UCLA and everything that comes along with being a Bruin.  We talked about the football games and the atmosphere of a UCLA sporting event.  We gushed about the amazing architecture of the buildings including my absolute favorite, Royce Hall.  We also talked about the great opportunities there are at UCLA, especially for prospective law students; having the Law School right on campus is perfect for consulting counselors or current law students.  We talked about the Travel Study program and how it’s not uncommon to find great prospects like this at UCLA.  We both miss Westwood and the campus dearly and will probably make a trip up there in the summer to rekindle our love with the Bruin nation.  Go Bruins!!

One thought on “Missing the Bruins

  1. I like this post. The years are passing by for me. I graduated from UCLA almost 10 years ago! I can always talk about how glad I that I chose a UC over a State University. A strong mentality is what UCLA has to offer.
