#tbt 5 Students Remember Visiting on Bruin Day

On Saturday, more than 13,000 prospective incoming freshmen and their families will take over UCLA for Bruin Day 2014. Like Bruins before them, they will carry maps, learn 8-claps, take selfies with the Bruin Bear, climb endless stairs, visit the dorms and finally submit their Statement of Intent to Register forms. MOJO celebrates our Baby Bruins with a Throwback Thursday by asking current students to tell us what they remember about visiting on Bruin Day:

We have midterms to study for, food we’d like to eat and maybe, just maybe, a need for peace and quiet.

Catering to the shut-ins in all of us, I’ve come up with five alternative activities for this Saturday, in the chance you don’t want your life to be bombarded by overly enthusiastic high school seniors and their even more enthusiastic parents. (more…)

Life Hacks: Dorm Edition

Daily Bruin / Jessica Korn

As college students, we’ve become masters of accommodating for our lack of money and general life skills. And to make that scraping by even easier for you all, I have taken it upon myself to share these simple (and more importantly, free) life hacks I have discovered upon my time here at UCLA by using things that we all have sitting around in our dorms.

Mojo Asks Students: Best Dates Around LA

How to Replace Your Meals With Matzo for Passover

IMG_1574

It is officially Passover. For the next week, it is Jewish tradition to not eat foods that contain any grains (Wheat, Oats, Rye, Barley, Spelt) that leaven/rise to honor the Jews when they escaped the Egyptians but did not have enough time to wait for the bread to leaven, hence why matzo (flat unleavened bread) is eaten during the holiday. Here are some ways to replace some of your favorite foods like a true matzo man. (more…)
