5 Things to Consider When Switching a Class from Letter Grading to Pass/No Pass


You’ve probably recently been hearing everyone obsess over what classes to enroll in for spring quarter, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.

UCLA Cooking/Baking Club Teaches Students How to Make ‘Foods to Impress’

Every quarter the UCLA Cooking/Baking Club holds three themed events at the Sunset Rec Vista Room to teach students that there are more eating possiblities than fast-food, ramen and microwavable meals. For just $5 per person per event, the Cooking/Baking Club provides recipes, ingredients and everything you need to learn to cook. Elliott Cheung, a second-year physiological science student and president of the Cooking/Baking Club advises people to come hungry. The best part of the event is that you get to eat everything you make. Past menu themes have been “Healthy Eating,” “Comfort Food” and “Thanksgiving Feast.” This Sunday, the theme of the meal was “Foods to Impress” in hopes that students would use what they learned to wow that special someone this Friday for Valentine’s Day. Even if you missed the event, you can recreate this impressive Valentine’s Day menu with a little help from Mojo. (more…)

DIY Valentine’s Day Cards

Recently someone explained to me that there are three types of fun. Type 1 fun is something that is fun when you are doing it and fun to look back on afterwards. Type 2 fun is something that is miserable as it happens but that you look back on fondly. Type 3 fun is something that isn’t fun in the moment and still sucks when you look back on it. So what does this have to do with Valentine’s Day?

I feel like as we get older, Valentine’s Day turns into Type 2 or even Type 3 fun. Society conditions us into having these unrealistic expectations that this one day of the year determines how much others care about us. We get convinced that it is bad be single on Valentine’s Day aka Single Awareness Day, SAD, because somehow this indicates that you will be #foreveralone.

Today we’re reminiscing over elementary school days when Valentine’s Day was Type 1 fun for everyone. It was all about friendship, candy, heart crafts, class parties, cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles and best of all the Valentine’s Day card exchange. It was fun then and it can still be Type 1 fun now. Here are some majorly specific (haha) ideas for Valentine’s cards to make your friends this weekend. (more…)
