Sprouts Superiority

Slowly but surely I am becoming good at feeding myself. Eating in the dorms was (perhaps surprisingly) very complex. The decision of where to grab lunch on the Hill almost always involved a series a calculations that included things like the number of stairs on the way to the dining hall, salad bar choices,  and…

A Bookworm’s Dream

At UCLA you will do a lot of reading.  Whether you are an English Major or an Engineer taking your General Education Writing 2 Class, you can expect to read at UCLA.  To some this may sound like a dream come true, to others this may be a nightmare!  No matter your response, at UCLA…

Food Truck Feast

I think most Bruins can agree that food is a HUGE part of the college experience. Whether it’s eating in our top rated dining halls or going out in Westwood eating is something UCLA is all about. Tuesday night I had the chance to go to a food truck event in Santa Monica. Food trucks…

Spring Break…it’s Good to be Home!

  Spring Break can some times seem like the eye of the storm.  On one side of break we have finals from Winter Quarter.  On the other side we have the entirety of Spring Quarter.  This one short week is the only thing that comes between each 11 weeks!  That being said, it is one of the…

Eatery on Lindbrook

I finally got to go out to Westwood last weekend after finishing all of my midterms. It was an exciting day for me, not only because I had finished my exams, but also because I got to meet one of my brother’s friends from Hawaii. Until last weekend, I had only contacted him through email…

Miss Foodie

Although UCLA has AMAZING dorm food, as our dining halls have been ranked #1 in the nation several times, I like to explore other good eateries in town once in a while. Being a huge foodie myself, I like to walk down to Westwood or anywhere around campus to find new places to eat great…

Food

Around UCLA, we are blessed with many gourmet yet affordable dining options. I recently had the chance to try a few of them. In Westwood proper, Five Guys opened just a month or two ago. They are famous for their customizable burgers, and also offer hot dogs and fries. I personally like our neighborhood In-N-Out…

Farmer’s Market

Last weekend I went to a farmers market in Hollywood. Los Angeles has tons of farmers markets. I think you could find one to attend almost any day of the week. Even Westwood has one on Thursdays. This particular one is nestled a few blocks from the infamous star walk. There is one street that…

Mentor Mixer with ASC (and the rest of my Thursday night)

  Thursday night was a busy night for me (as Thursday nights tend to be). I got out of class at four and then had to head back to my room for an hour to gather my things, have a Reese’s, and surf the interwebs. I walked down to Broxton for the second Westwood Live…

Bruins in the Village

This past Thursday evening saw no less than hundreds of Bruins in Westwood at a great event titled “Bruins Night Out” hosted by CEC (Campus Events Commission) and General Representative 1 office.  It was incredible to see the streets packed with students eagerly seeking the myriad of deals that night, including free Diddy Riese cookies, buy…
