Weekend Outings at the Getty

With midterms just around the corner, I thought I would take advantage of this past weekend to do some off campus exploring and ended up at the Getty. The Getty is a beautiful museum right on the other side of the 405.  By bus, you can get there in as little as 10 minutes!  It…

(More) Los Angeles Visit

I recently returned from a five-day farewell UCLA trip. I mentioned in my last post that I went to the Getty Villa, but I got to do so much more fun stuff after that! This included more museums; one really isn’t enough. I’ve already been to both LACMA and the Getty, but I’m always in the…

College Mobile

First and foremost I am writing this piece as a warning to all out there: YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE A CAR AT UCLA! Ok yes, I’ll admit it. I have a really cool ride. Some might even say an envious one: a smooth riding, luxurious, Nissan maxima ‘98 edition, and despite what many have…
