This semester I decided to start playing club lacrosse. We just got back from two weekends in a row of travel. For the first weekend, we drove up to play Berkeley on Saturday, then Cal Poly on Sunday. Though I ended up spending 15 hours in a car, it was so much fun to get [...]

As a native Angeleno, you’d think I’d have seen all the important sites in Los Angeles. And I have spent memorable times at some of the city’s major attractions: screaming for the Lakers at Staples Center, gazing through an amateur astronomer’s telescope at the Griffith Observatory, cruising through important exhibits at the Los Angeles County [...]

Ah, Thanksgiving. The short period of rest before finals descend upon us. And for those of us from out-of-state like myself (woo, Wisconsin!), that brings up a huge question every year: What do I do for Thanksgiving? Now, I would love to fly home, but considering we only have a week of classes after Thanksgiving, [...]

Growing up in Los Angeles, I’ve always gotten heat from my East Coast friends around this time. Los Angeles seasons are a little less intense than other places in the country.

Each student has to create what we call an STP, a Sacred Text Project, that engages in issues of equality, justice, and civic prophecy. My classmate Nirali and I needed video footage [...]

I had finished several midterms for my classes and was just completely exhausted by the time Friday before spring break rolled around. I had signed up for an Alternative Spring Break trip to Orcas [...]

In November of last year, Dr. Geller from the Pre-Health office gave me an information packet about a two-week trip to Managua, Nicaragua for a group service project offered trough the national government. As I read through the description, I had a feeling this adventure would be the trip of a lifetime, and I was [...]

My first week in Paris is coming to a close, and it’s been a whirlwind adventure to get to this point. My flight for Paris left around 2 pm on Wednesday, so naturally I began packing four months worth of my things at 8 pm on Tuesday. Needless to say, it was a little bit [...]

I love spring semester. I come back from my freezing cold home (yes, Texas can get really cold!) to the sunshine and warmth of LA, and it feels like the days just get sunnier and sunnier. Especially Fridays. My other favorite part of spring semester is that there are so many three-day weekends, and since [...]
