The Hike to Hedrick

Whenever you hear that someone lives in Hedrick Summit, you immediately feel bad and wince in pain at the thought of walking up all those stairs.

Once you decide to make the trek, you have to mentally prepare yourself.


At first, you feel so energized, until you hit your second set of stairs, and then it starts to feel like they’re never-ending. Because they are.


I decided to measure the amount of steps it actually takes to get from Hedrick Summit to Kerckhoff Coffee House, since coffee is a priority in every college student’s life.

Beginning in Summit’s lobby and taking the shortest route, I walked 1,647 steps in about 15 minutes. BONUS: I burned 31 calories. That’s my workout for the week.

That’s over 1,600 steps just to get to Kerckhoff. Just imagine the walk to UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.


Next time you make your way to Hedrick Summit, feel free to skip the gym. Walking to Summit is enough.

Rapper Dumbfoundead hits stage at Kerckhoff Coffee House

Dumbfoundead, a Korean-American rapper from Los Angeles, performed at Kerckhoff Coffee House Monday night in front of a lively crowd of more than 150 students.

On his YouTube profile, the artist says he “went from parking lot freestyles to rockin’ shows internationally.”

Watch part of his live performance in the video below:

Heejin Jeon, a second-year piano performance major, recently discovered Dumbfoundead, but said she really enjoyed his performance.

“I think his freestyle and spoken word was the best,” Jeon said.

The concert took place during a busy time at UCLA – midterm season. Steven Wu, a third-year business economics student, said he found out about the concert last-minute but had to drop by despite the time crunch.

“I’ll be studying for my midterms right after this,” Wu said.
