    Located in West Los Angeles, UCLA is a highly regarded public academic institution known especially for its research and athletic programs. The campus is stunning and the environment invigorating. No doubt it provides the backdrop for the many movies we see today. Most recent are "Higher Learning," "National Lampoon's Van Wilder," and "Old School."

    Popular with students and the budget conscious, both Noodle Planet and Boba World can't be beat! Noodle Planet serves up all sorts of Asian dishes, but I think their specialty's in the Thai foods they make. Boba World sells an array of beverages, that on request, may contain those yummy tapioca balls. Sometimes those drinks can even be a meal in itself.

    Favorite Dish: Noodle Planet: Roasted Duck Over Rice and Pad Thai
    Boba World: Taro Smoothie w/Boba

    As the mecca of film screenings, take your pick from the several movie theaters in town - who knows, you might even get to see your favorite movie star walk the carpet. But if you're not in the mood for a movie maybe grab a bite to eat at any of the surrounding restaurants. And if you're still not satisfied, quench your thirst at the bars, i.e., Madison's, Maloney's, or Westwood Brewing Co.

    Dress Code: Casual is good.

    Compared to most metropolitan areas, Los Angeles has a poor public transportation system. However, as a former student and employee of the university, the Santa Monica Blue Bus was a God send. Take the 1, 2, 3, 8, or 12 to UCLA.

    In recent years, our basketball program hasn't faired well. Ok, ok, I admit it, we've sucked. Nevertheless, try to catch a game in Pauley Pavilion, if you can. It witnessed the exemplary coaching of John Wooden and 11 championship tournaments. UCLA has a great basketball tradition, I'm confident we'll regain our status in the near future. That new b-ball coach of ours better be good!

    Equipment: Just bring your eyeballs and blue and gold spirit!
