Today after a meeting for an organization I’m in was over, we had an ice blocking social! What is ice blocking, you ask? Ice blocking is literally exactly what it sounds like- taking a big block of ice, sitting on it, and sliding down hills! One tradition here at UCLA that a lot of student groups like to do is to go ice blocking down the hill by Janss Steps. Janss Steps are the historic stairs named after the Janss brothers Edwin and Harold who sold the land that UCLA campus was built on to its founders at a bargain price. During the day especially in Spring quarter, students love to nap or tan on the hill by Janss Steps and at night we also found a way to put it to use by going ice blocking. It is super fun and one thing on my UCLA bucket list that I can now check off!
