    Fondest Memory of UCLA

    I loved the beauty of the campus, the libraries full of books to check out whenever I want, the food and fun down in Westwood, the beaches in nearby Santa Monica and Venice, the football and basketball games, and all of the wonderful performing arts events at Royce Hall. I miss just plopping down on the grass and sleeping too.

    Advice for Current International Institute IDP Students

    Definitely do a semester or year abroad through EAP. This changed my life.
    Take classes that interest you, and think outside the box.
    Don't get buried in books. Go have fun.
