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

It’s syllabus week and you just got back from break, so naturally you’re exhausted. Don’t forget to make a pit stop at Powell to release all that stress and enjoy the local architecture.

7. OR just deal with it

Study Spots for the Outdoorsy #STL

The dudes from the MTV show “Jersey Shore” coined the term “GTL.” But given that it’s ninth week and finals are just around the corner, at UCLA we drop the gym and the laundry and substitute it with studying and learning. And that, my friends, is how #STL was born. (Yes, it’s a thing.)

This time of the year, the hill by Janss Steps and Kerckhoff patio get all of the love from those who like to avoid studying indoors. So for those of you who also prefer to enjoy the L.A. sunshine but would actually like to find a place to sit, here are nine outdoor study spots at UCLA where you can live up to the “study, tan, learn” motto. Ditch the library, leave your room and study in the great outdoors.

1. The Bombshelter

This place is officially called the Court of Sciences Student Center, but let’s be real, no one calls it that. The Bombshelter is one of the most highly underrated areas on campus. Plenty of outdoor seating and unlimited access to food make it the ideal place to study. Grab your course readers, devour a Subway sandwich and soak up some knowledge in the sun.
