UCLA admissions were released at the start of this month and a record number of more than 112,000 students applied for the 2015-2016 academic year. That might explain why there has been an overwhelming amount of touring students and families on campus, making it impossible for me to squeeze in a quick lunch at Ackerman Student Union.
Earlier this month, UCLA’s official Twitter account hosted a live Twitter chat which allowed admitted freshmen to ask any questions about life and academics at UCLA with the hashtag #askUCLA. People made hundreds of tweets, but a certain few stuck out as quite memorable this year.
I have been asking myself that same question every day since becoming a student here.
Really funny @UCLA, really funny. Playing with our emotions like that.
Tommy is still waiting for a reply.
I thought some real shade was being thrown here, but it’s OK. All is good.
I have a feeling she isn’t a new student.
OK, he most definitely is not new here.
And well, this guy.
With that, congratulations to all the baby Bruins that have been admitted this year! I’m sure they all will have many more questions once they start in the fall, so let’s welcome them with open arms.
