First Time in Korea Town

One of the most unique things about UCLA is the fact that it is located in the diverse city of Los Angeles. It is the responsibility of every UCLA student to go and experience the incredible diversity and unique experiences that the city can offer. This often means that you have to go outside of…

UCLA Basketball, A necessity for any UCLA student.

One of the must-do experiences for any UCLA student is attending a men’s basketball game in historic Pauley Pavilion. This year Pauley Pavilion underwent an almost 2 year, 180$ million renovation without sacrificing the original structure, making it seem brand new and historic at the same time. There was a lot of hype surrounding the…

When life speeds up, you slow down!

  After a hiatus from the Blog I am back, and I am pumped to start sharing my experiences with all of you again! Between spring quarter, winter quarter, and fall quarter, winter quarter always goes by faster than all the others, and this year is no exception. Somehow, it is already third week and…

Road Trip Part 1

It is hard to believe that I am already half way finished with my 4 years at UCLA. The last 2 years have been a truly remarkable experience, and I cannot wait for the next two and I am seriously dreading the end. As an out-of-state student from the east coast, I enjoy being in…

A Solar Afternoon

  I cannot believe that it is already the end of 8th week, spring quarter of my second year. It is hard to believe how quickly this quarter, and this year has flown by. I cannot wait for summer, but I also  really do not want to leave UCLA and Southern California! I have had…

A Day in Pre-History

One of the best things about UCLA is the incredible faculty. Every member of our faculty is very accomplished and they are incredibly smart people. Of course, there are a few stars. I have the privilege of taking a geography class with Jared Diamond. Professor Diamond has written New York Times bestsellers including Guns Germs…

Somethings bruin out-of-state!

Some of the other bloggers have already written about Bruin Day, but I can offer a unique experience as an out of state student. When I was deciding whether or not to attend UCLA there was no Bruin Day. I really wish there had been, because Bruin Day is an amazing day. I could not…

Spring Ball

One of my favorite things about spring quarter is the start of spring IM sports. I always make sure that I am on as many IM teams as possible, and in spring that means softball. When the weather warms up it is only natural to get restless. It becomes difficult to concentrate on studying or…

The Dodgertown Classic

Growing up, April 1st was always one of my favorite days of the year. Why? Because it meant the start of the major league baseball season. I hate the period of time between the end of football season and the beginning of baseball, so when baseball season finally rolls around, I am ecstatic. But when…

UCLA Student Athletes

As a student at UCLA you are always exposed to people on campus who have very different lives from your own. One large segment of this population at UCLA are student athletes. They are just as much a student as anybody else at UCLA but often they are looked upon as something else by the…

Apartment Hunting in Westwood

As much as I love living in the dorms, I think it is time for a change. That is why my friends and I decided that we are going to move to an apartment next year. I have loved living in the dorms the last two years and I know I will miss it, but…

From the Beaches to the Mountains

This weekend, my closest friends and I decided to take advantage of our three day weekend and go have some fun away from Southern California. In the span of a day, we went from 70 degree weather on the beaches of Santa Monica, to the sub-freezing temperatures of the Sierra Mountains. We loaded up the…
