Fall means New Friends

This weekend I had the opportunity to say at a beach house in Sunset Beach with 25 people I did not know.  Needless to say I was a little bit nervous, but I walked away with 25 new friends!  What was I doing that put me in that situation? I was on a retreat with…

Back in time for Senior Year

  Well, its’s that time of year again….students have already started moving in, band camp has started, RAs are here, and the apartments are surrounded by furniture being moved in and out. I love Fall- as a season and as a quarter.  I love that the weather starts too cool off (theoretically) and all of…

First Week

Can you all believe that we just finished first week?! Even though I’ve gone through Fall quarter already, I have to say the busyness with classes, assignments, work,  and (now) research still has me in shock. So last week, I realized how important Google Calendar is for me. It is SUPER important. I started panicking…

Moving in

You know you’re in LA when you feel the surge of warm heat right when you open the car door. I finally arrived at UCLA last Saturday for move-in. It took nearly 6 hours from my hometown, Monterey, to get to Los Angeles by car. Before going to the campus my family stopped by Koreatown,…

A quick weekend trip before Fall kicks in

Hey all, can you believe it that Fall quarter is about to start in 1 week???? Summer does go super fast!! I took the chance to get a quick weekend trip to San Francisco to avoid LA heat and to avoid the idea of thinking back to homework and midterms in about 1 week, haha…..

First Year, Transfer, and Continuing Students

Can you guys believe that there is less than 1 month before school starts again and we’ll kick off Fall quarter???? This summer  has been going super fast!! Soon enough, we will meet a lot of new Bruins joining our big family whether they are first year or transfer students. It is always an exciting…

Winter Break / Bye Bye School!

Ahh, the end of fall quarter and the beginning of break. This is a goodbye to some of the things I have or do at UCLA and a hello to the wonderful world of time off: Goodbye (required) reading. I have liked some of you, but some of you have been not so nice. I…

Fa la la la la Fall Quarter is over!

Winter quarter is right around the corner, which means that I survived my first quarter at UCLA. Congratulate me because it was a little rocky. New place. New job. New people. I’m definitely looking forward to next quarter. This time I’ll know what’s going on most of the time. The only thing I’m looking forward…

Zero Week: no longer a Fall phenomenon!

Some of you may love the Fall quarter especially for its Week 0 (“zero week”) on top of the football season and great weather (it was 80ºF/26ºC this past weekend!), but luckily for us, this year we will have Week 0’s for all of our quarters. I love Week 0 because that’s when everyone is…
