The $10 Sawtelle Situation

Sawtelle is the name of both a street in West LA and the neighborhood that encompasses it. If you haven’t been yet, it’s time to pay this gem of the Westside a visit. It’s close enough to campus to take the bus. And what better time than now? It’s eighth week after all – far enough from finals week to put off studying, and close enough to get stressed and look for suitable distractions. Sawtelle, dubbed “Little Osaka,” offers some of the best Asian food in town, along with karaoke places and unique shops with prices that let you make the most of your college student budget. Bring only $10 (cash, as most of these places are cash only) and follow Mojo around Sawtelle. (more…)

Candy Crush Addiction

A little over a year ago, the sweetest, most addictive game known to man was created. If you’ve heard the phrases “Did you pass me to the next section yet?” or “Wait, let me just pass this level,” or “IF I HAD ONE MORE MOVE I COULD HAVE BEAT IT!” then you probably know what I’m talking about: Candy Crush Saga.

Spice Up Fall: Pumpkin, Sage and Ricotta Lasagna

There are certain combinations that are just non-negotiable: milk and cookies, spaghetti and meatballs, marshmallows and hot cocoa … and pumpkin and sage.

When I first saw the recipe on UCLA alumna Casey Ditty’s food blog, Snip of Mint, among other winning recipes like chocolate rosemary ice cream and mozzarella and pesto dinner rolls, I knew this lasagna would also be a surefire win.

One bite of this delightfully unique lasagna will be enough to convince you. It’s a great variation of the traditional fall pumpkin line-up.  (more…)

Mojo Asks Students: Which GE classes should we take next quarter?

Enrollment passes for next quarter are underway, and students are struggling to signup for the classes they need, find which ones have the best professors, and of course look for general education classes they might enjoy. In order to help you out, we asked students which GEs they would recommend to their peers.

Chris Ishida, a third-year computer science and engineering student, said, “Astro 5 was pretty easy and interesting. It was a cool class that talked about the grand scheme of things, like how life came about,” he said. “It was a ‘purpose of life’-type class.”

Sarah Schwartz, a third-year economics students, told us, “Poli Sci 20, which focused on international politics, was really relevant [to real life] because it keeps you up on what’s going on in the world.  It wasn’t that hard; it wasn’t that easy, but it was interesting, which made the class easier than others.”

Matt Clutario, a third-year biology student, said, “Music History 68, the Beatles class, taught the history of the Beatles, the folk movements, and the ’60s, their personalities, and breakup.  I didn’t listen to the Beatles that much before, but this class turned me into a huge Beatles fan.”

Which GE’s would you recommend to a fellow bruin? Comment below or tweet us @dbmojo.

How Do You Stay Healthy During the Holidays?

Heaps of turkey (or tofurkey). Stuffing. Sweet potato and marshmallow bakes. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Pie. Pie a la mode. More pie.

Oh, the temptation of sinful holiday season food. With Thanksgiving and winter break quickly approaching, many UCLA students will make their way home to indulge in gluttony way beyond going back for seconds of everything at De Neve. The TV blasting football and the comforts of home on our minds, we’ll abandon our gym and workout routines and potentially build up nice coats of “winter insulation.”

That being said, there’s always plenty of ways to try to stay healthy with diet and exercise. Mojo asked some students around campus for tips on how to stay healthy during the holidays. Here’s what we found: (more…)
