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,…

Throwback to my Dorm Days

I know I’ve said this before, but one of the best parts of UCLA is the food!  Most of my first two years at UCLA were spend at Bruin Cafe.  That may sound like an exaggeration  but considering the number of meals I ate there and the hours I’ve study there (not to mention working there…

Dorm food (the best food)

You guys. UCLA’s dorm food is the best. Like really, it’s really delicious. And I will never be living in a dorm again, UCLA or otherwise, but since I have quit Hill-life, I’ve learned (like really learned) that dorm food is something to be cherished. Dining halls get a lot of props – they are…

Delicious & Hilarious

Wednesday night was an excellent night for two reasons: it was delicious it was hilarious Wednesday was the night of the Hill’s annual themed dinner. Every year, Housing & Hospitality goes above and beyond to put on a beautiful themed dinner for the residents in the dorms. Last year, the theme was Hawaiian, which meant…

Construction

I think regardless of what college campus you are on, some type of construction is happening. Chances are, the tour guide has some joke with the acronym of the university and construction. UCLA- Under Construction Like Always. Currently, we have some really amazing projects going on. I hadn’t been up on the hill in awhile…

Princeton Ly – Apartment Hunting

  Finals aside, one of the things you should be thinking about as a UCLA student is where you’re going to be living next year, and with who. The dorms are of course a great option, especially if you’re just a first year this year. I’ll tell you right now, having food at the swipe…

My Visit to the Lovely Ashe Center

Once upon a time, I woke up to the worst sore throat I’ve ever had. It was extremely painful and on top of that I had a discussion and a lecture to attend. Eeeek. In high school, one could easily just tell mom and dad that you weren’t feeling too well so they could call…

The most delicious thing in all of the dining halls:

Pork. Carnitas. Tacos. These things are really freaking good. I mean like, whoa. UCLA is known for having some super tasty dorm food, but in my opinion these tacos take the prize. Let me tell you why this dish comes out on top. UCLA’s dining hall food, in general, is pretty good. But, it is…

Moving into Westwood Village North

This past weekend, I moved into Westwood Village North, where a cluster of apartments have been in the area for some time now, to serve UCLA students who typically move out of the dorms after their second or third undergraduate year.  At UCLA, we don’t have to worry about moving off campus right away (some friends…

Dorms continued!

OK! Meal plans. You can choose from five meal plans. You can either have 19, 14, or 11 meals a week, and the 19 and 14 plans have a premiere option. Basically, with premiere you get a bunch of benefits: your meal swipes roll over from week to week you can swipe people in you…

Dorms!

By now I would guess that all y’all have gotten your dorm assignments. This post will be an introduction to: some background on dorms at UCLA the types of dorms we have and my next post will cover… meal plans roommates some of the cool things we have on the Hill my dorming experience Ok,…
