The Six Easiest Costumes Ever that will Get You $3 Chipotle on Halloween

Editor’s Note: An original version of this post contained a culturally insensitive GIF and costume idea. The Daily Bruin apologizes for this editorial oversight and for any offense this post may have caused.

There’s no need to think further about your dinner plans on Halloween night. Forget “sand-witches” because in case you were unaware about the news that Chipotle is serving $3 “booritos” I’ve got your back. It’s true. Go into any Chipotle on Friday, Oct. 31, after 5 p.m. wearing a costume and score yourself a burrito, salad, tacos, or a bowl for just three bucks. The proceeds will also go toward their foundation, Chipotle Cultivate Foundation. What better way to pregame before all the candy and festivities than that? Still don’t have a costume though? Don’t fear, here are also some easy-to-do ideas you can throw together right before. (more…)

Study Spots for the Outdoorsy #STL

The dudes from the MTV show “Jersey Shore” coined the term “GTL.” But given that it’s ninth week and finals are just around the corner, at UCLA we drop the gym and the laundry and substitute it with studying and learning. And that, my friends, is how #STL was born. (Yes, it’s a thing.)

This time of the year, the hill by Janss Steps and Kerckhoff patio get all of the love from those who like to avoid studying indoors. So for those of you who also prefer to enjoy the L.A. sunshine but would actually like to find a place to sit, here are nine outdoor study spots at UCLA where you can live up to the “study, tan, learn” motto. Ditch the library, leave your room and study in the great outdoors.

1. The Bombshelter

This place is officially called the Court of Sciences Student Center, but let’s be real, no one calls it that. The Bombshelter is one of the most highly underrated areas on campus. Plenty of outdoor seating and unlimited access to food make it the ideal place to study. Grab your course readers, devour a Subway sandwich and soak up some knowledge in the sun.

Most of us have probably seen the endless social media posts of photos and announcements of graduations from those on the semester system, while the rest of us are still buried in our books, preparing for these last few weeks approaching finals until it is the quarter-system students’ turn to boast and celebrate.

Meanwhile, it is still important for those graduating to stay on top of the last deadlines to be fully prepared for the commencement ceremony. In case you need a checklist or are too swamped to remember what is left, here’s a helping hand so you don’t forget to pick up your guest or honors tickets. (more…)

4 Reasons We Love the Quarter System

The day after tomorrow marks the first day of May, the month that many students on the semester system get to officially call summer. For us, it’s only the middle of the quarter. There will surely be loads of bragging Facebook statuses and endless Instagram uploads with certain hashtags that we will claim are only used to make us quarter kids jealous. But the truth of the matter is, we don’t really have many reasons to be envious of students on the semester system. And because you probably still don’t believe us, here are four reminders of why the quarter system is so great. (more…)
