Throwback Thursday: February 26, 2003

Twelve years ago today, The Daily Bruin published a story about an MCD (molecular, cell and developmental) Bio 40 class, and how its students served the AIDS community. Professor Roger Bohman required his students to serve at community service agencies that benefit AIDS victims, allowing them insight into the topic being discussed through a medium other than textbooks and lectures.

Whatta cool dude amirite?

Looking at this professor’s reviews on bruinwalk.com really shows how loved he is by students who took this class. According to Joshua Abel, who was a second-year psychology student in 2003, “It gives you real life experience in something to give you a different perspective on the course. You’re not just dealing with paperwork; you’re dealing with something that is very real.”

According to this article, 27,000 students had taken Bohman’s classes, “which translates to a great deal of hours in the community.” UCLA still offers a variety of opportunities for community involvement, so feel free to explore the Volunteer Center’s website if you want to get involved.

Throwback Thursday: Feb. 12, 1970

Network Scan Data

On February 12, 1970, 54 students, along with UC Regent William Forbes, participated in an anti-tuition campaign. Meaning: there was no tuition in 1970.

This campaign with the tagline “Bleed for UCLA” used proceeds from the blood drive for advertisements in newspapers state-wide in order to publicize the fact that the Regents were voting on whether to introduce tuition to the University of California and to explain “the arguments against tuition,” according to a Daily Bruin Editorial in this same issue. This editorial asks if Ronald Reagan, who was the governor of California at the time, can ignore students’ arguments against tuition, but “can he also ignore (their) blood?”

Roger Barnes, a senior at the time, said he was bleeding “in sympathy with what’s going on” and Cynthia Swarthout said that although she’s “graduating, (she) originally came to the University because there was no tuition … it’s something worth saving.”

It sure would be nice to have my $30,000+ per year still in my pocket, that’s for sure. *sigh*

Throwback Thursday: The UCLA Homepage

Let’s take a look back at UCLA’s website throughout the years.

Above is UCLA’s homepage in 1999. Feel free to click on this link to explore the website and pretend like you’ve traveled back in time. It’s perfect for procrastinating studying for midterms.

The homepage became slightly more modern in 2001, but, in my opinion, the UCLA logo definitely still needed some major work.

And you can’t ever complain about my.ucla.edu again after you’ve seen the MyUCLA page from 2001.

This is the homepage in 2006. Still a little rough compared to today, but it’s definitely coming along.

And here it is today. We’ve come a long way.

Plans After Graduation

“So, you just graduated. What’s your next move?!” This is a question that just about every graduating senior has heard countless times and probably has become mechanical in answering. The next round of proud UCLA Bruins are now venturing out and taking on the world with their accomplishments and we wanted to trouble them with that question one more time to find out what they have planned. Here’s what just a couple of our awesome class of 2014 students had to say:

PUMPS and Circumstance: Shoes for Graduation

Graduation season: The time when countless of Bruins anxiously await the day that is the culmination of their UCLA experience.

But none of these questions are as worrisome and important as, WHAT SHOES AM I GOING TO WEAR?
