Seven Things You Can Do to Pretend You’re Still on Spring Break

A week of spring break and we’re supposed to come back refreshed and ready for a new quarter? Please. It’s only been a week, and we’re already beyond burned out. Thankfully, there are plenty of things you can do to pretend that spring break truly is forever.

1. Tan on the roof of Boelter

Get that vitamin D between lunch and stats lab. It’s called multi-tasking and, no, it’s not weird.

2. Frolic around the Family Pool

Because nothing says “spring break” like alumni, their young children and the sweet smell of chlorine.

3. Hoard everything coconut-flavored from the student store

Shampoo, yogurt, toilet cleaner … Everything is fair game. Pro tip: Also works with “tropical” and “sea breeze” scents.

4. Line up the shots … of espresso

As a wise man once sang: “Shots! Shots! Shots!” Make sure to amp up the caffeine and “turn up” for class this quarter.

5. Sip a tropical drink under the sunlight fluorescent lights

Jamba Juice has your back, spring break-dweller! Order yourself a nice Caribbean Passion, and enjoy in the calming atmosphere of your favorite student union.

6. Take a wildly undeserved nap at a popular landmark

7. OR just deal with it

Frozen yogurt lovers from all parts of campus got irrationally excited upon spotting the new froyo joint on the block. For those of you who haven’t passed it yet, Sweetspot is located on the first floor of Ackerman Union, alongside Rx Candy. The dessert is self-serve and the selection varied. But how does it compare to other frozen yogurt spots in Westwood, namely Yogurtland? We asked students what they thought. (more…)

Canine companion reunites with student owner

In dog years, two years is a long time.

That’s how long puppy Frankie Bubba Rains, at right, had been separated from his owner, fourth-year economics student Leslie Perea. The two reunited under the awnings of Ackerman Union Friday night.

Here’s the story: Perea rescued Frankie from the Humane Society before coming to UCLA. But college life didn’t cater well to her canine, so she had to leave Frankie in the care of her boyfriend back home.

How do you deal with being separated from your pets while at school? Tell us about it in the comments.
