Things I do before Finals…

Well this is week 10 which means finals are next week! So what are the things I do to prepare for finals?  So much is going on…but I couldn’t be more excited. As a college student, you have multiple things going on at the same time. If it isn’t something it’s another thing. I have…

Princeton Ly – Study Time

  It’s hard to believe that the quarter is almost over. They’re already playing Christmas music on the radio! In any case, for us college students, the approaching holidays mean that we must overcome one last major obstacle between now and complete freedom: finals. One of the hardest things to do in studying for finals…

Quarter System…and How Fast it Goes

It’s Fall Quarter and here, we are about to start Week 4. One of the fabulous things that I love about the quarter system is how fast it goes. Some might be afraid of it, but hey, I love the challenge. It seems as if just yesterday we were all just getting adjusted to back-to-school…

Featured Study Spot: Novel Café

Another week has passed by and brought summer session A to an end!  And, like the end of any term, it must be accompanied by a round of finals.  Naturally, finals week (or the week immediately preceding it) is a crucial time when previously relaxed study habits suddenly click into gear and “get down to…

Welcome, Summer!!

It was a memorable week at UCLA.  Finals week was filled with many people studying late into the night; luckily, I was not one of these people.  I was able to finish early and spent Finals week relaxing and slowly moving out of my dorm.  It’s hard to imagine that it was only a mere…

Botanical Gardens

Here I am at the end of my Freshman year at UCLA. I am studying for finals, finishing up projects, and eating a ton of junk food. As this year closes, I reflect back on my experiences thus far. Sure I have done really awesome things and made totally amazing friends, but I think my…

Finals Week at UCLA

A week before finals week, I unfortunately got sick with Strep throat. That same week I had two papers do, a project, and also a final (back to back days). So I had to deal with deadlines and sickness all at the same time. Thankfully for me though, I had almost finished with all of…

Spring Quarter

I love UCLA, but by our tenth week of school during spring quarter I am completely burnt out. However spring quarter is always the best. The sun is always shining, there are endless outdoor activities to take part in, and best of all spring quarter is followed by summer. As soon as I finished I…

Collective de-stressing at UCLA

At UCLA, there is a myriad of fun traditions that showcase our unity and Bruin spirit on the campus.  One of my favorites is the Midnight Yell that takes place throughout every finals week, starting Sunday.  This is the week at the end of each quarter during which students are feeling pressured and apprehensive about…

Summer, is that you knocking at my door?

To most Bruins, 10th week is the last moments one has to kick back, relax, and reflect upon the wonders of the year in passing as a UCLA student before finals week hits. However, for some of us unlucky souls, it is but a reminder of the 9 weeks before. This past quarter I took…
