Plans After Graduation

“So, you just graduated. What’s your next move?!” This is a question that just about every graduating senior has heard countless times and probably has become mechanical in answering. The next round of proud UCLA Bruins are now venturing out and taking on the world with their accomplishments and we wanted to trouble them with that question one more time to find out what they have planned. Here’s what just a couple of our awesome class of 2014 students had to say:

What Social Media Outlet do UCLA Students Prefer?

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Blogspot … the number of social media outlets that we are tied to seem to be almost infinite at times. With so many different types of social media outlets and so many different ways to share information, we began wondering how UCLA students preferred to share their news. We asked five UCLA students how they would share five different stories and the results were surprisingly uniform.

1. You just got accepted into graduate school. How do you share this news?

“I would choose Facebook because I think it’s more text friendly and I would be able to write a post and people will actually take the time to read it as opposed to Instagram which is more picture-based.

True life: I’m in a relationship with caffeine. Specifically, sweet and creamy drinks that taste more like dessert than coffee. So naturally, I go crazy for Starbuck’s frappy hour. What is frappy hour, you ask. It’s basically happy hour for frappuccinos including the ones on Starbucks’ secret menu, meaning that all frappuccinos are half priced (even though the sign says, “Buy one, get one free” you can  buy just one frappuccino at half the normal cost). Frappy hour is happening at all Starbucks locations May 1 – May 10 from 3 to 5 p.m. This week MOJO asked students in line for frappy hour what drink they planned on ordering:

What’s Your Funny Story?

Humor. Although not something we can all agree on 100 percent, it most certainly brings joy to all of our lives. Such is the spirit of the David Sedaris 6th Annual Humor Writing Contest, a contest by the Student Committee for the Arts inviting UCLA students to submit funny short stories (2,000 words or less). Winners receive tickets to see David Sedaris on June 24, an autographed copy of his latest book,and excerpts from their stories printed in our very own the Daily Bruin. With the deadline for stories coming up soon (extended to May 16), I thought a good way to inspire anyone writing last-minute submissions would be to ask students about their own personal funny stories. Here are some responses to “What’s your funny story?” (more…)
