As college students, we’ve become masters of accommodating for our lack of money and general life skills. And to make that scraping by even easier for you all, I have taken it upon myself to share these simple (and more importantly, free) life hacks I have discovered upon my time here at UCLA by using things that we all have sitting around in our dorms.

While your study lounge may not be the most intimate or romantic place to cuddle up with a significant other, there are so many places in downtown L.A., Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Beverly Hills, or our very own Westwood, to go on a date. If you need some inspiration for the next time you take your sugar out on the town, these students have you covered. We asked them where their ideal date would be, and they came up with some pretty cool answers. (more…)
It is officially Passover. For the next week, it is Jewish tradition to not eat foods that contain any grains (Wheat, Oats, Rye, Barley, Spelt) that leaven/rise to honor the Jews when they escaped the Egyptians but did not have enough time to wait for the bread to leaven, hence why matzo (flat unleavened bread) is eaten during the holiday.

In the words of Usher, “These are my confessionsssss…..”
Every time I was in U.C.L.A. I was with my ex-girlfriend
Every time you called I told you,
“Baby I’m studying.” (No!)
I was out doing my dirt (Oh!)
Wasn’t thinkin’ ’bout you gettin’ hurt
(I) was hand in hand in the Ackerman Union like man
Not givin’ a damn who spots me on Bruin Walk
So gone (I know)
So wrong (just listen)
Have anything else you want to confess ? Comment below or tweet us @dbmojo.
Fun fitness fact: Did you know that consistent high intensity work for 4-10 minutes will improve your ability to do 20-40 minutes of lower intensity endurance activity?
In other words, you could do just 4-10 minutes of hard work and gain more fitness than you would if you spent 30 minutes on a steady state cardio machine. We college students are always complaining about not having enough time… so why not save 20 minutes on your workout while still gaining fitness?
Today’s track workout combines running with a few other exercises to help increase your strength while getting a cardio workout in as well. When you’re working, you’re working as hard as you can for that interval. The workout will take anywhere from 10-15 minutes to complete, depending on your fitness level. The rest period is not designed for you to completely recover – by not fully recovering from each round, you’ll have to work harder. (more…)
