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…)

#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.

The Top 5 Places You’re Going To During Spring Break

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 11_Fotor_Collage2

Mojo asked 62 UCLA students where they were headed for spring break. Although they were headed all over the place to eight states, five countries and two continents, a clear top-5 destinations emerged.

1. Home 

It comes as no surprise that the most common spring break destination is home, with a whopping total of 23 people. We’ve never needed to sleep in our own beds, eat home-cooked meals, catch up with old friends and – let’s face it – our Netflix series more than in our current states of exhaustion and brain fry.
