Some UCLA students have had their Halloween costumes planned out for months, while others are scrambling to put something together at the very last minute. Mojo asked a handful of students the loaded question: “So what will you be for Halloween?” We’ve organized the answers into four main categories. Hopefully they can give you some last-minute inspiration. (more…)
One of the most widespread cliches about fall in the U.S. is that everything just suddenly comes in the pumpkin spice variety. UCLA and Westwood are no exceptions to this tradition. BCaf (and all Westwood coffee shops) start serving pumpkin lattes and pumpkin ice-blended drinks. The dining halls add pumpkin coffee cake and pumpkin mousse to their dessert menus. Yogurtland’s Westwood location offers its nonfat dessert in the ever-popular pumpkin spice flavor as well. (more…)

I’ve thought long and hard about this dilemma and have come up with a few ideas for parties that will change Halloween and the uncreative costume party scene forever. (more…)
It’s midterms season, and students are cramming to memorize four weeks of material, pulling all-nighters and drinking endless cups of coffee. At some point, they may start to wonder is all this stress worth it? We asked students how much importance they placed on midterm scores and whether or not they thought any of this would matter to them in five years time. Compare these students’ opinions to your own.
