Spring Quarter Classes

At UCLA, we have the first two weeks of the quarter to change class times, sections or perhaps classes in general. Now that we are well into third week, schedules are finalized. This quarter I am taking four classes. 1)      Phy Sci: Continuation of the core series for my major. This is the last class…

Weather Confusion

It’s been awhile since my last blog about the weather so here we go again. I walked to the gym and it was slightly raining. I left the gym and the rain had stopped. I walked to class and needed to take my sweatshirt off because it was sunny! (note: It was 8:30 am). After…

Countin’ Down

While it seems like most of my peers were catching up on sleep or laying on a beach, I spent my break either at gymnastics practice or preparing for the MCAT. I cannot wait to be finished studying for this test. I have honestly spent at least two hundred hours preparing for this exam. I…

Salt Lake City

  This weekend I went to Salt Lake City to cheer on the Bruins at the first ever Pac-12 Gymnastics Championships. Boy was it exciting! Utah has absolutely wonderful gymnastics fans. Over 10,000 of them came out to cheer on their team. They truly made the environment special- I now understand why Utah loves competing…

Construction

I think regardless of what college campus you are on, some type of construction is happening. Chances are, the tour guide has some joke with the acronym of the university and construction. UCLA- Under Construction Like Always. Currently, we have some really amazing projects going on. I hadn’t been up on the hill in awhile…

Dorm Dinner

In what is becoming a quarterly tradition, Bruin Ambassadors had their final meet of the quarter in De Neve Dining Hall. (Side note: Bruin Ambassadors is the undergraduate admissions program I work for). For those of us who no longer live on the hill, the younger ambassadors pull together enough swipes to feed all of…

Physiology of Nutrition

  This quarter I am taking my first upper division elective class for my major. The elective courses are pretty neat since they focus on a specific topic. My class is titled “Physiology of Nutrition.” It is quickly becoming one of my favorite classes I have taken at UCLA. The topic applies directly to day…

My Classes

WOW! I can’t believe I have already taken my first midterm of the quarter, and next week will be the half-way point. Boy, is time flying. And it’s February?? Hard to tell with all this wonderful sunshine! With that said, I thought I would tell you a little bit about the classes I am taking….

MCAT Prep

  Well, it is my time to enjoy the favorite time of every pre-medical student’s career, preparing for the MCAT. The MCAT is essentially the medical school version of the SAT. Except, it is much more intense. The test includes sections on biological sciences, (organic chemistry and biology) physical sciences (physics and general chemistry), verbal…

Tis The Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No- I am not crazy. I realize Christmas was a month ago. I am talking about gymnastics season! Every weekend I look forward to cheering on our team to victory. For those of you who don’t know, UCLA Gymnastics is one of the premier teams in the…
