Dorm Room Recipe: Overnight Oats

This recipe is for all of you out there that hate mornings, which is probably 99 percent of the UCLA population. We abuse the snooze button, pick sleep over eating breakfast in a dining hall and are usually late to morning classes.

A main problem with not being a morning person is that you probably skip breakfast more than you should. Breakfast provides you energy for the day ahead, especially after that nighttime “fast,” and will help you focus in class instead of thinking about your growling stomach.  (more…)

Five Ways to Make the Most of Your Enrollment Times

Whether you’re in a first, second, third or fourth year, we’ve all had our fair share of ups and downs enrolling in classes.

How You Wanted to Spend the Long Weekend vs. What You Actually Did

Bless our wonderful country for honoring our presidents with a day of observance every year. And bless our wonderful school for letting us take said day off. Three-day weekends are always something to look forward to. They are a chance for you to plan something super fun or productive to do that you can’t normally do on a two-day weekend. That event you want to go to out of town? No problem! Need to catch up on some work? Of course you can! The extra day opens up a world of possibilities to you.

But let’s be honest: 95 percent of the time, we never do any of the stuff we think we will do with our extra day. And the disparity between how you thought you would spend your long weekend versus how you actually spent it is slightly problematic. (more…)
