University of California Los Angeles - UCLA, Los Angeles
Festival of Books is a must for all book lovers! Attend readings, panels, and book signings. This event occurs in April at the UCLA campus. Best of all, it's FREE!!!
Please be advised, if you want to attend a panel, make sure you call TicketMaster in advance to get your FREE tickets or else you'd have to wait in the stand-by line and risk not getting in.
My rating: 4 out of 5.
Have a look at the the giant UCLA Bear on Bruin Walk, which is the "mascotte" and the symbol of this university.
Th Bear is 6 feet high and it was a gift of the Alumni Association in 1984. This tooth- baring bronze grizzly is a powerful and forward moving representation of the strenght and progress of UCLA.
When in LA, if you wanna visit a real American Campus, go see UCLA.
I was there 4 times in a row during the summer and experienced what life in an American college is!
The campus is so big it is like a village and in fact to go from one building to the other there are buses running across UCLA
When in LA I was staying in Westwood area, West Los Angeles, a charming college town
It is one of the safest area where you can strangely even walk at night! The area is full of movie theaters, reastaurants, bars where you can grab a bit, and music stores. Mainly College students from U.C.L.A. like to take a stroll here
The UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) campus is located roughly in the northwestern part of the city near Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Santa Monica. The campus is pretty large and is very beautiful. It is definitely a great place to visit, especially if you are a student considering to apply to this top-ranked school.
Outside Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Culture Center, behind the tiny Avco cinema, Hammer’s marble tomb in Westwood Memorial Park stands near the lipstick-covered plaque that marks the resting place of Marilyn Monroe.
