Back-to-School Candle Scents

With autumn comes everyone’s favorite quintessential “fall favorites” – comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, making fun of people for liking pumpkin spice lattes, and of course, a fall classic: candles, usually in a warm spice or vanilla scent. But now that we’re back in school, we’ve all got other things on our minds than which filter to use on our Starbucks picture. So to keep things in the back-to-school spirit, here are some candle scents that more accurately capture the season.

Letter From the Editor

Oh hello there, lovely Mojo readers!

I just wanted to introduce myself because I’ll be editing the content on Mojo this year. I’m a third-year economics and geography student from Torrance, which is about 30 minutes south of UCLA without traffic (but let’s be real, there’s ALWAYS traffic). When I’m not blogging for Mojo, I like taking selfies with my cat, playing board games, going for long walks on the beach (yes, actually) and binge watching new TV series.

What Now? (2014 Commencement Edition)

Oh dear.

You’re graduating.

This is a disaster! Now you’ll never be James Franco. You can’t even be Ben Stiller, or any of our famous dropouts-turned-stars. I know you’ve worked hard over the last four years for that diploma, but you still have a chance!

So run, Forrest, run! Run for the hills and hide! Declare another major, tell the registrar that you actually flunked one of your GEs back in your first year; do anything, anything at all that would let you stay for just another year.

PUMPS and Circumstance: Shoes for Graduation

Graduation season: The time when countless of Bruins anxiously await the day that is the culmination of their UCLA experience. It is around this time that countless questions start to arise: Did I meet all of my requirements? Have I purchased my cap and gown? Am I going to pass this last class I need to graduate (uh-oh)? But none of these questions are as worrisome and important as, WHAT SHOES AM I GOING TO WEAR?
