There are two weeks left until finals and we know you feel like this:
So take a breather (not in a paper bag, hopefully) and have some fun this weekend. Summer is so close we can taste it, so let this weekend be a preview of what’s to come once you’ve conquered finals. Of course, don’t forget that this Monday is Memorial Day, so be respectful and remember why you have the day off in the first place. Here are some things you can do this weekend as a last hurrah before buckling down into study mode.
49 Cent Slurpees
Okay calm down, we know you are excited. Understandably, of course, because from Friday, May 24 to Monday, May 27, 7-Eleven is treating everyone to medium-sized slurpees for only 49 cents. If you’re looking for a place to get your slurpee on, the closest 7-Eleven to UCLA is located at 1400 Westwood Blvd.
The JazzReggae Festival
You don’t even have to leave campus for this one because the JazzReggae Festival is coming straight to UCLA. On Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27 celebrate awesome music with performances from artists such as Ziggy Marley and Santigold. Tickets are still available but act fast.
Viva Las Vegas! If you’re feeling adventurous, be like the Wolf Pack and get yourself to Las Vegas. UCLA students are planning to take over Sin City and participate in an 8-Clap heard around the world with students and alumni alike. On Saturday, May 25 at 4 p.m., meet at the Bellagio Fountains to take part in the famous UCLA tradition.
Use this weekend to catch up with all movies you might have missed. The Bruin Theater is playing The Hangover Part III and the Regency Village Theater is playing The Great Gatsby. With just a short bus trip, you can see Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness in Santa Monica.
A trip to the Freud Playhouse may not seem like much of a getaway, but seeing this musical will definitely make you feel like you are in different world. The Department of Theater is putting on the Tony Award winning musical Spring Awakening for its spring show. Check out some trivia and information about the show before you go.
