Lynn Nishimura Fingers rise to the air as the crowd waits anxiously for the Men ' s Basketball team to score a free throw point. Fans were always ready to support the Bruin sports teams at all events. ' ; This year, we pay tribute to the first graduates of the new millennium. The entire Bruin family celebrates the achievements of the new members of the UCLA alumni community. We, the staff of Bruinlife, dedicate the following pages to our graduating seniors, as well as to the ones who are " almost there. " We invite you all to join us in a journey through school year I999 ' 2000. Together, let us refresh our memories of all those late night (or was it morning?) cram sessions at Powell Library, those sleepless nights in our dorms, those long lines at Murphy Hall, those dreaded finals, exciting movie premiere nights, wild parties, last ' minute " microwave " term papers, and all those happy, as well as not ' SO ' happy, athletic events. If there is one common thing that we the Bruins both students and alumni, share alike, it is the distinct pride that is forever instilled in our hearts. And there are a thousand and one reasons for this. In our plurality, we share one goal. In our diversity, we share one voice. In our unity, we share one soul. Years after Bruins graduate from UCLA, they continue to cherish the memories, feel the pain, and share the pride, both of the present and of the past. Long after our UCLA sweatshirts are discolored, the imprints remain embedded in our hearts. UCLA, for the true blue and gold Bruins, is more than just a prestigious university. UCLA is a culture in itself. UCLA is an identity. UCLA is a race. UCLA is a way of life. Graduating from UCLA is not the end of our Bruin journey, but rather, the beginning of a greater one. Graduating means joining a family of prominent alumni, heroes all, who impart the knowledge that UCLA has entrusted in us to the rest of the world. Graduating means joining thousands of Bruin brothers and sisters who excel in their fields of endeavors. It is in this light that we preserve the sanctity of the Bruin experience in these hallowed pages. Our years at UCLA will forever be one of the most important times of our lives. As such, Bruinlife offers you a year ' s worth of memories that will remain forever in our hearts.

One Voice One (Soul I The year 1999-2000 was undoubtedly marked with a few rough times. Yet one thing that we could all truly be proud of is that during the trying times, our Bruin faith remained undaunted. We go beyond these unhappy times and celebrate the grandeur of the traditions that not even a thousand misfortunes could take away from us. While others merely talk about unity, we live it. While contenders talk about concepts of pride, we breathe it. While critics ramble about quality, we exemplify it. While opponents talk about superiority, we are it. We will all cherish the times we spent at UCLA, both the good and the bad. After the pain of our failures and mistakes are gone, we will look back and smile at the past as we savor the joy of emerging as victors of trials bygone. We will come out stronger, smarter and better. For through these trials we are able to test the strength of the genuine Bruin spirit that our alma mater vested on us. And through these tests of fire we reassure ourselves of the presence of that power that is greater than us the power of unity that binds us all as one family. There are countless trials and tribulations that we will remember of our experiences at UCLA. Yet all these will be overshadowed by an even more abundant magnitude of moments and reasons to cherish and celebrate. We are all bound to leave the portals of our alma mater at one point, and as our graduates leave, we wish them the best and reassure them that we will share ourselves with them forever. One voice, one spirit, one soul. I Prologue The Life of a Bruin iffif a Lynn Nishimura Catching the perfect wave, the surfer rides it back to the shore.

Athletics allowed students to strive for the best physically, just like they did academically. Chris Bourlier Where in the world are Joe and Josephine Bruin? They are everywhere. You can find them in the lines of the cafeterias on campus, eager to test that award- winning service that our school takes pride in. You can also see them grooving their " wild thing " as they watch performances at Westwood Plaza. They are in the privacy of their cozy little nooks in the dorms and the apartments. Or maybe sweating to death as they solve that abominable calculus problem. If you really want to find out where they are, flip the pages and see for yourselves. The secret to finding them is understanding that there is a Joe and Josephine Bruin in all of us. In the following pages, take a glimpse of our lives as students, circa 1999-2000.

Lynn Nishimura their Gap-inspired clothing, and hoops, had also become more platform sandals, cuffed pants, and cell phones. The counter movement to that include grunge style clothing and the increasingly popular Goth movement. " My RA took me to get my belly pierced my freshmen year, " Alexis Hall, a second-year English student said. " Then I got my nose pierced that summer with my boyfriend. I wasn ' t rebelling, but I wanted to assert my independence. " Tattoos and piercings seemed to signal the ultimate in youthful independence. Popular tattoos for popular for women as well as eyebrow and tongue piercings. " I love a woman with a tongue piercing, " Sam Dunkerson,a fifth-year, biology student said. " You just know that she ' ll be good at... well, you know, " he concluded, embarrassed. For the fashion- conscious woman, capri pants and Abercrombie Fitch clothing with little Bebe dresses were the height of fashion. For the aware male, Tommy Hilfiger topped the charts. In the counter movement, girls were roses or butterflies on baggy clothing and black made ankles or lower backs. For males, their respective stands around eagles, snakes, and designs made their ways onto backs and arms.

The was a popular Kelly Thomasson Lynn Nishimura Lynn Nishimuia The (Smoker ' s Corner Despite Facts, Smokers Persist in Danger Although the surgeon general has declared that smoking is bad for one ' s health, many students ignored the warnings and chose to smoke anyway. 1999 estimates for the United States claimed that 25.2 million men and 23.2 million women were smokers, and that an estimated 4.1 million teenagers smoked. Data from the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse showed that if current smoking trends among teenagers continued, approximately five million people under the age of 18 would eventually die from smoking-attributable diseases. The American Cancer Society estimated that 450,000 deaths occurred annually from smoking, 3,000 of which were non- smokers who acquired lung cancer from second ' hand smoke. Luke Chun, a senior microbiology student, was not too concerned with health issues. " I guess I am concerned subconsciously, but I smoke, then By Gina Marie Turcketta quit, then start up again, so I am not too concerned about it, " he said. Amazingly, Chun had been smoking for ten years, yet his parents know nothing about it. " Yeah, I guess I am addicted to smoking. It is possible for smoking to lead to other addictions, but not with me. " Jerry Kojima, a fifth-year history student with a specialization in business, had been smoking for five years, and blamed peer pressure for getting him started. " I am a little bit concerned with health issues regarding smoking. I see a reason to quit now, " he said. Unlike Chun, Kojima ' s parents did know that he was a smoker. But like Chun, he admitted to being addicted to smoking. " But I don ' t see how it can lead to other addictive behavior, " he explained. Eric Kim, a 19 year old engineering student claimed that curiosity got him interested in smoking not peer pressure. " I had been smoking since the ninth grade and I continue ' cause it ' s a habit. It is addictive, and I do think it can lead to other types of addictive substances. But I don ' t smoke pot, so that ' s not the case with me. " Kim was slightly concerned with health issues and its effects on other aspects of his life. " ... I am more concerned about doing well in school, " he said. Kim ' s parents were aware that he smoked. He would like to quit but he thought at that time he couldn ' t. " If it ' s a spur of the moment thing to stop, I know I wouldn ' t be able to, " he said. Nicotine, the substance smokers are addicted to, increases the heart rate and blood pressure, and thus increases the risk of heart attacks. The advice " don ' t start " were truly words of wisdom. People who have started smoking later on found themselves unable to stop, and many times they found that out too late. With a cigarette in hand, this student has no concern for the rising prices of cigarettes. People continued smoking despite the increased costs imposed this year. Jackie Honda A female student smokes her cigarette outside of Royce Hall in between classes. Smoking helped many students relieve some tension from a day at class.

I think that over probably not be cool for your the last decade, music has children. Music listened to in this definitely not improved. Music era has created the social culture of America, often giving us a glimpse of the current ideologies of people. Popular music over the course of American history has ranged from swing dancing to anti- Vietnam songs, all showing us what the people cared about at the time. So what was hot in 1999? What has been considered right now to be popular music? " The trend right now seems to be the Backstreet Boys and N ' SYNC, " Calida Midi Le, a second-year physiological science student said. " I ' m not really into that type of music. They all sound the same to me too lovey-dovey. I like country music more. " Although music from pop stars such as the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears seemed to be on the After classes are over for the day, this student listens to music on his home. Listening to music helped pass the time away when students walked back to the dorms. Lynn Nishimura has become commercialized ; the lyrics and melodies sound mostly the same. " Often, what students thought of as pop music groups in the ' 90s, had been songs by artists such as Jennifer Lopez and 98 Degrees. However, what students actually liked was very different. Although there were many people who listened to " pop music, " there was also an extremely large amount of students who listened to the Dave Matthews Band, Limp Bizkit and Nine Inch Nails. Not to mention classical music and opera. Every one of those should be considered pop culture too, because they were popular for our generation. What do the different types of music say about 1999? What does radio a lot, the diverse group of it say about our generation? The UCLA students took an interest in a different variety of music. When asked -what she thought of popular music nowadays, Amy Lee, a second-year business diversity of popular music has indicated that people listen to any and everything.

" ! r Lfnn Nishimura Kelly Thomasson w hen one is looking through old college yearbooks from decades past, a common thought that runs through his or her mind must be: " My, this is so OLD-FASHIONED! " Well guess what! Decades from now, future UCLA students who peer into this 1999-2000 yearbook will think the very same things about today ' s popular trends and fashion. Let ' s look back through the eras of the ' 70s, ' 80s and today, to reminisce on what were the most " hip " and " popular " trends of the day. The ' 70s was an era of " funk " and " grooviness " . Men customarily had mustaches with either shaggy hair or afros. Women typically had long, straight hair. Bell-bottoms were definitely in style, as well as platform shoes, and people wore big, tinted- sunglasses. Disco was a popular style of music at the time with Saturday Night Fever and the Bees Gees. Young By Kevin Lee people and " Deadheads " went to Woodstock to listen to Jerry Garcia. The Volkswagen Bug was the car of the decade. Many people wore those bright, spiral -colored shirts, and the attitude in the air was " peace and love. " The ' 80s can be characterized as the pop and dance generation. Men wore jean jackets and Converse shoes. They looked up to the underdog image of Rocky Balboa from the movie " Rocky. " Break dancing was popular and also the movie " Dirty Dancing. " Party girls looking for a date wore pink, skin-tight stretch pants, " slap- bracelets, " and chewed bubblegum. Women idolized Madonna and guys wanted to be like Michael Jackson. " There was the whole music video scene and that entire weird era of rock and roll, " recalls Chris Diaz, a first- year political science student. Finally, personal computers appeared on the scene with Apple and IBM. In the ' 90s there was the " grunge " style, influenced by Nirvana, which consisted of t-shirts, flannels and jeans with holes at the knees. Then came the trend of skater-associated clothing and wearing oversized tops and bottoms. Men and women often dyed their hair with red, purple, green, or blue dyes. On the music scene, there was grunge rock (Pearl Jam), alternative (Beck, Green Day), the rap industry (Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur), techno (Chemical Brothers), R B (Boyz II Men), teen pop (Backstreet Boys), and even Latin pop (Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez). " People are getting richer and younger, " commented Kevin Chen, a second-year chemical engineering student. Though the trends of today will seem " old-fashioned " or " un-hip " tomorrow, they will always remain alive and an essential part of our most fondest college memories.

Jackie Honda A closeup of a student clutching on to her leopard print purse.

Yet others would rather be sipping their cappuccinos at Starbucks Coffee as they passionately pounded on their laptops ' keyboards, beating the ticking of the clock for that paper due the following day. At UCLA, you could find all types of people with different ideas and methods on the best way to study. They were everywhere. Under the trees, over the tables, by the stairs, near the fountains ... and you might have even wanted to try in the fountains. You might have found students in there studying At UCLA, it is impossible to walk for more than five minutes and not find a student studying. Students engaged in their school work was a common, everyday sight. Sangtip Chienpradap not surprising to find that most students concentrated on their books. However, there were always a few who could party wild and still managed to do well in their classes. First ' year music student Jefferson Liao tried to balance between his studies and fun. " I can ' t do homework in class anymore. So, I guess I procrastinate a little less, " he said. He knew that one could only party so much at such an academically challenging school as UCLA. First ' year pre ' business economics student Ken Chang found that UCLA was also a place in one of those weird, desperate -where having too much fun posted additional challenges. " There are lots of stuff to do here ... lots more distraction, " he said. But then again, all work and no fun was not good either. At UCLA, most students had developed a skill whom you could study with was wherein they could solve calculus of paramount importance in problems in their heads while college. Not only did it help by " raving " the night away, way of being able to engage in a days. Try finals week. Sophomore political science student Mimi Park said she studied at different places, sometimes even at her friends ' Indeed, having friends rooms.

Give a Outside me Lecture Some assumed that tutoring and help during office hours were for students who really needed help and did not know the most basic of the ideas presented in class. Such statements were incorrect, and completely off ' base, according to Amrit Chima, a UCLA graduate and Academic Advancement Program tutor. " There ' s a misconception that it ' s for slackers, [but the truth is] it ' s for everyone, " she said. Overwhelming classes in terms of size and materials were consistent complaints of UCLA students. For those who had questions and concerns, the answers were not too far away. Not only could students visit their professors during office hours on a weekly basis, but they also could ask questions and discuss materials with their teaching assistants. Reminiscing the summer before starting one ' s college career at UCLA, a spiel from faculty and staff would most likely come to mind a speech encouraging incoming students to visit professors and TAs during office By Catherine Calleja hours, as well as seeking help outside the classroom setting through tutoring and or fellow students. When one revisited in his or her mind the first day of classes of each new quarter, memories of professors ' introductions emerged. During the routine step by step explanations of the syllabus, professors and TAs seemed to have uniformly mentioned office hours and their impending loneliness during this time when students do not visit. The benefits of tutoring and office hours not only fell within the realms of improved grades and better understanding of class materials, but also within the good graces of those one has met with. By going to office hours, professors and TAs were able to meet with students personally. This not only helped the latter academically within the classroom setting, but also with any type of advisory role in a number of areas including endorsements through personalized letters of recommendation. Most, if not all, graduate and professional schools, as well as workplaces, require letters of recommendation from authority figures, particularly in the academic realm. What better way to build that relationship than by visiting office hours? The misconception that those who went to office hours or tutoring didn ' t know anything was refuted by professors, TAs and tutors. Such an act should not be deemed as embarrassing. " Many people think that tutoring is for people who really need help and don ' t understand anything, but I believe that it is primarily for reinforcement. It is not for people who don ' t have ideas, but actually tutors are really there to help students further develop their ideas and further their understanding and give them a new perspective on things, " continued Chima. The success of one ' s academic career may not have necessarily depended on tutoring or visiting office hours. But of course, a little extra help never hurts. This professor explains a diagram on a screen. Many professors opted to teach using computer generated projections, as opposed to writing notes on a white board or a chalkboard.

Lynn Nishimura A student copies notes on the board during class. In addition to their own notes, the UCLA Bookstore sold Lecture Notes as a supplement to notes that students took in class. A teaching assistant writes notes on the board. Classes taught by TAs included fewer pupils so students could get a deeper understanding of the material discussed in lectures. Lynn Nishimura 49 mics Battle or the Bruins Majors Divide UCLA Students and Campus By Catherine Calleja Nearly as intense as the UCLA USC rivalry, the " rivalry " between the north and south campus students was always a hot topic of debate at UCLA. Like in most rivalries, stereotypes of both parties existed the most prevailing ones being that south campus students w ere geeks and that north campus students didn ' t do any work. Nicole Musser, a sophomore biochemistry student, found stereotypical impressions of the so called " southies " rather unflattering. " I am sometimes offended by the stereotypes that south campus students are boring, ugly, and too serious. I think that just because you choose a particular major doesn ' t mean that you ' re completely oblivious to everything else in the world around you, " she stated. Comparison between these two entities within the Bruin family was not limited to academics and majors. Even the structures and designs of various buildings around campus were pulled into the north and south campus rivalry. South campus ' Knudsen Hall had Albert Einstein ' s famous made the murals. Because of the " northies " ' supposed lack in scientific understanding, " southies " claimed the students on the other side had left out the two, leaving them the responsibility of fixing it because they were more responsible and had the " know-how. " The " southies " were not the only ones unhappy with the stereotypical impressions. The mural on the side of the Math Sciences Building is associated with an image of South Campus UCLA. The Math Sciences Building was home to many math and science majors at UCLA. Julia Kwan Students on north campus claimed that they were concerned about the way people perceived them as lazy workers as contrasted to their counterparts who had earned the reputation of not having " lives " outside of o their study groups and classes. Such beliefs, the " northies " claimed, were misconceptions and an unmerited categorization of the groups of individuals. Unfortunately, this stereotyping of students was found in the UCLA community. The good news was that it was not overruling. Though the stereotypes and rivalries were heard and felt, the friendships, similarities and compromises between individuals prevailed. And you bet, when " E=MC 2 " equation as its theme. But students started talking about the rather than claiming it as merely a much-abhorred Trojans, northies and decorative statement, as with the other murals, south campus students used it as an unflattering remark on the intelligence of their north campus counterparts. Looking closely at it, the exponent portion of the equation looked misplaced and unbalanced. The reason for this, according to common belief, was that the " artistic " north campus students southies united in bashing the notorious USC students. The only factor that kept the University from splitting between north and south campuses was team work, compromise and double majors in both north and south Campus classes. We all need to remember that it didn ' t matter which campus you belonged to: a Bruin is a Bruin. .7 ..:.: i . - Two students stand off in a north and south campus rivalry between north and students has always been a t among UCLA students.

" I can ' t wait to go to France, " said Shalom Sriter, a third-year political science student. " I ' ve wanted to go to France ever since I was a little child and now I finally have the opportunity. The only thing I am worried about is that my French won ' t be up to par, but I can ' t wait to see all the sights, sounds, and smells of France. I might even bathe nude! " With programs in 34 countries including France, Spain, Ireland, England, Japan, and Austria, EAP By Erin Rattazzi offered a comprehensive selection to suit most students ' desires. A student wishing to travel abroad must have fulfilled a set of stringent requirements. They must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA at the time of application and maintain that GPA throughout their trip. They must have junior standing and demonstrate a mature purpose in the selection of their country. Furthermore, they must be endorsed by the campus EAP selection committee and meet all campuS ' Specific requirements. Of course, they all must meet the foreign language requirements for their country. " Both my parents are Spanish, so I grew up with the language around me, " said Anita Alvarez, a first-year undeclared student. " But it was only when I came to UCLA that I learned the fundamental grammar rules of the language. Now I am planning to go to Spain in a year or so and get in touch with my roots. " For those students who didn ' t wish to go abroad, the Center for American Politics and Public Policy (CAPPP), program allowed an elite group of 25 students to go to Washington D.C. for a quarter and earn credits. Students also worked as interns there. For the adventurous student, UCLA offered plenty of variety in their programs to allow students to explore the world. Along with the many other picturesque spots of Italy, the Pontvecchio in Florence provided a peaceful setting for admirers to pass by and enjoy. An advantage of studying abroad was being able to personally see famous wonders of the world. Lynn Nishimura Student Life Visitors admire the cars along a street in Milan, Italy. Students who chose to study abroad were able to pick countries in just about every continent in the world.

Many students who have studied outside of the United States gained a greater appreciation for other cultures when they returned home. Lynn Nishimura Featured in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, is the famous Venus de Milo sculpture and the Mona Lisa painting. The Louvre Museum was visited by many tourists throughout the entire year. Jeremy Afuso 53 M By Erin Rattazzi any students came to communications student. " But then college with stories I found out that he had a girlfriend about how their parents fell in love in college. Love was what we all want in our life. How else could the success of such romance ' driven sagas such as the movie " Titanic " be explained? Students at UCLA were no different in their quest for " The One. " They looked in their classes, hoping that under the watchful glance of our esteemed professors, a borrowed pen will lead to a discussion on how beautiful one ' s eyes are. They looked in Westwood, where students gathered to watch the latest blockbusters. They were set up by well ' ineaning friends and they also found love by chance or in the dorms. " I met this girl, Erin, on the tenth floor Dykstra [Hall] last year, " said Kevin Hall, a second ' year philosophy student. " She chose me over all the other guys and I ' m not even in a frat. Yeah, I was Holding hands is just one of the signs of affection towards a loved one. Couples on campus faced problems of not having enough time to spend with one another because of school or work. Lynn Nishimura and I realized he was a complete slimeball. " Some couples stay together through the difficult high-school ' tO ' college transition, but find that the nature of their partnership has altered. " There are two main differences between our relationship in high school and our relationship in college, " said Lauren Kimball, an undeclared second ' year who has been with her boyfriend Robert for two years. " One of which is that there is no friend ' pressure here in college. In high school, our friends didn ' t get along. But here everyone we met already knew we were together and it wasn ' t a big problem. " Some students who were restricted by curfews and dad ' s conservative habits shed their goody-two ' shoes personas when surprised, but everything has gone they came to college. well and we plan to marry in the " His parents didn ' t want him to future and have kids with anti-frat have a girlfriend in college, " sentiments, " Hall concluded. Kimball said, " but now that they ' re One popular place to congregate not around, we get along better, with the herd for love were the We ' re more independent and he ' s more mature, " Kimball concluded. As men and women in the formative years of their lives matured, love took a dominant residence in the concerns of many Thursday night frat parties. These often offered a good place to socialize and have a " hook-up " but rarely anything else.

Balancin Priorities Personal ime Compiled by Gina Marie Turcketta How do the academic demands of UCLA affect your personal relationships? John Pedersen Third ' year, psychology " It has caused arguments between us Decause we are both stressed out with school. But we both understand that, and we move on. " Jayde Wilson Fourth ' year, French ' I have so much schoolwork during the school year that it is really hard to spend much time with my boyfriend, jut I would not say that school hurts us very much. It ' s fine. " Kristina Gordon Fifth ' year, sociology " Because he is out of school, he doesn ' t have to deal with the demands of academics which makes it hard to do things -with him and lowers my motivation to meet my academic responsibilities. " Gayle Goldman Third ' year, psychology " The academic demands of UCLA certainly puts a strain on our relationship. It is definitely difficult to have a successful academic career and a successful relationship. I think the key is compromise and understanding. " John Pedersen Third ' year Psychology Student Life Kristina Gordon Fifth-year Sociology 56 ! Gayle Goldman Third-year Psychology Jayde Wilson Fourth-year French One of the biggest and most exciting moments for students was when they stepped on campus for the first time and realized that they were actually in college. Doubts and uncertainties crept their way in, but before they knew it, this year ' s incoming freshmen were on their way to becoming next year ' s rich and famous. At the end of the year, how had the freshmen handled their classes, being away from home, and surviving a college as big as a small town? " The big difference I think everyone notices right away is the fact that there is no one there to hold your hand anymore. You ' re on your own finally, which can be a scary thought, but it truly is a nice change. The time has to come one day and it ' s nice to know that so many other people are going through the same thing, " replied By Michael Andersen Max Roberts, a first-year aerospace engineering student. The first time one realized that mom and dad were no longer there to help out was a traumatizing experience. It was funny how the little things were what mattered most. " The first thing I noticed about college was that there was no one to go to for guidance or motivation to get your work done, " says Phil Tadlock, an undeclared first-year student. " In high school you had teachers that would pressure you to do your homework, but here the professors and TAs [Teaching Assistants] don ' t really care what you do. In college you have to be proactive. " Freshmen had to stay focused and keep their heads because having the freedom to miss an assignment or go to sleep instead of finishing that last chapter were very addicting. The words " I can ' t party tonight, I have to get this paper done, " were never this hard to say back in high school. UCLA advised freshmen to take it easy the first quarter by recommending only 12 units. It paid off for those students who needed to shed parental control, while other students realized that college was not as hard as they thought it would be. Stacey Dodd, Diana Le, and Alvina Tr-Galstanyan, all first-year undeclared students, agreed, " It ' s easier in college; (we) worked a lot harder in high school. " Whatever their first impressions were, the growing pains -were just beginning for our new students. They made it over the first hurdle and can now look forward to all the amazing times to come, like their sophomore, junior, and senior years.

" But to most of its students and alumni, UCLA not only stood for great futures, but also for great experiences. College was the time to explore Vietnamese ' American community.

UCLA students journeyed into " ...Living with five complete maturation, university life provided a path for its students to trek.

Chris Bourlier strangers is the most memorable thing I can think of. I was weary about being around strangers for the first time.

Chris Bourlier ra( i K Cftr s Bourlier Lynn Nishimura Erst Time Experiences A Change or ettin, Transfers MeWe into UCLA Communit This year, approximately 2,700 students chosen from a pool of more than 7,000 applicants transferred to UCLA from other academic institutions. Though some came from other four-year universities, most transferred from California community colleges. Coming to UCLA as a transfer student had its pros and cons. Students who chose to attend a community college before transferring to UCLA enjoyed the benefit of thousands of dollars in savings. At a community college, the average cost of attendance was about 12 dollars per unit. However, a number of transfer students found it difficult to adjust to the UC educational system. Junior philosophy student David Chon related how he felt about attending Santa Monica Community College before coming to UCLA. " My experience at SMC did not prepare me By Roberto Reyes Ang for what I encountered here. At a junior college I was able to work full time as well as take 15 units without problems. This is not the case here, " he said. While most students at community colleges were able to efficiently juggle between work and school, many of them shared the same sentiments as Chon. " My philosophy classes at UCLA involved an extensive amount of reading, as well as analyses. I am now forced to change my two ' headed objectives of work and school. This is a positive experience because one cannot truly benefit from attending school here while devoting too much time in menial labor. How I see it is this: I have the rest of my life to work for money, now is a prime opportunity to gain knowledge, " said Chon. At UCLA, most students prioritized academic excellence over their jobs. They were confident that their sacrifices would pay off after fulfilling all of their academic responsibilities. Junior economics and French student Nguyen La still did not feel he had adjusted to UCLA academics yet. " The biggest challenge that I ' ve had was learning to adjust to UCLA academics. Several classes that I took at Fullerton did not prepare me for some of the classes that I ' m currently taking at UCLA. However, it is not a major disadvantage. I know that with a little hard work, I can handle the work that the professors dish out, " he said. Chon, La, and many others did well in blending with those who began their college education directly at UCLA. After all, it did not matter where one came from. Everyone at UCLA was expected to meet the challenges of a university that ranked among the best in the world. Lynn Nishimura :: ' .::: ' I.

" Second-year international development studies student Zeina Zeitouni, spent much of her time at the Kerckhoff Coffeehouse. " Most people I know are south campus majors, and they hang out there, so I usually know someone in there. It ' s also very convenient being close to Ackerman. " When asked the pub question, Steven D ' Ambrose, a graduate student in screen writing, thought that it probably be better to keep alcohol off campus. " Besides, Westwood is an extension of the UCLA campus, and it is so convenient just to go there to have a beer. " D ' Ambrose spent much of his time on campus in Northern Lights. " There is a nice fireplace there, which is kind of reassuring. It reminds me of the east coast. I ' m from New York, so I really like it. Also, you can get everything you need all in one place.

Bruinlife set out to uncover just where the Bruins chilled. Whether they were just looking for a quiet place to study or an entertaining place to enjoy some time with friends, UCLA and the surrounding Westwood community offered a variety of settings to suit all of our Bruin needs. Wearied students, stressed to meet deadlines, were -welcomed throughout Westwood in several quiet coffee shop environments. A visitor to Starbucks Coffee would first notice the sweet aroma of French roast, but then would be reminded that Westwood was a college town. With nearly 20 students buried in open books and stacks of notes, one can begin to wonder if coffee stains decreased the resale value of used books. Dave Browne, the manager of Starbucks, was aware of this situation but didn ' t seem to mind. UCLA student and Starbucks employee Frank Pinto By Michael Andersen advised this to say to fellow Bruins: " Buy a coffee and stay as long as you like. " If Starbucks happened not to be one ' s " cup of coffee, " then gyms, theaters, and gardens offered wonderful surroundings for those who would like to get away from the pressures of UCLA. Many students opted to head for workout areas either at the John Wooden Center, the LA Fitness Club in Westwood, or even in their own apartment buildings. " I like to slip away to the Wooden Center. It gives me a chance to work out and get in shape as well as it ' s an opportunity to get a break from my school work for a little while, " said Jacqui Bispo, a first-year English and psychology student. In any case, getting into shape could become a habitual routine that was not only great in relieving stress, but also helpful for students who wanted to find others with similar interests. Anyone who had shown up late for one of Westwood ' s numerous theaters knew well enough that it didn ' t matter if the theaters sat over a thousand viewers. For six bucks you could sit back, laugh and cry for a couple of hours and have no care whatsoever for what was happening past that theater screen. There was no wonder why it was a favorite hangout on weekends. The scenic greenery in north campus provided a wonderful area to relax and spend time with friends. Shade from numerous trees, artistic touches, and the tranquil-grass- covered landscape, highlighted the transition from the bumper-to- bumper, horn-noise-pollution nearby freeways. Was there a more perfect place to show visitors to UCLA? Whether you liked a quiet surrounding where you could finish some work or a lively spot to have fun with your friends, you would be able to find a place of your liking in Westwood, both within the UCLA campus and downtown. Mindy Ross A view of the the Fox Theater and the recently refaced Broxton Avenue. With many of the storefronts of Broxton Avenue still vacant, the street offered a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

Mindy Ross Student Life W Lynn Nisnimura Looking for a simple dessert after a movie in Westwood? Diddy Riese, which stayed open until late into the night, was a well known spot to get cookies for a quarter apiece. Mindy Ross Aahs, located on Westwood Boulevard, is a popular place that students go to for novelty gifts. When decorating their dorm rooms or apartments, this store was often frequented by Bruins because of its wacky items. Mindy f (MM in Westwood 67 By Michael Andersen UCLA was at the center of a city renowned for sleepless nights and limitless pleasures. Wandering students could find hours of fun all over Los Angeles in the form of museums, theaters, beaches and clubs. If you got past the hunt for parking, Los Angeles offered all kinds of fun places and events for any mood you might be in. A community so large and diverse was a gold mine for the fun-seeker. " When I get a chance to leave Westwood, I usually go to the beach, " claimed third- year aerospace engineering student Geoff Huntington. " If I just want to hang out, I ' ll go to Santa Monica and walk around the Pier and bum through some of the stores on Beach Street, but when I go body boarding, I usually go to Malibu. It has the better waves for surfing and body boarding. " One of the confusing decisions for UCLA students came when they had to decide where to go on a free night. The smorgasbord of options was almost too much. Along Sunset Boulevard, Miyagi ' s brightly lit sign attracts people to go in. Miyagi ' s was a popular bar that specialized in sushi appetizers. Lynn Nishimura times and took off in whatever direction they stopped. Sunset Strip with numerous clubs and stores was to the east, the beach and 3rd Street Promenade to the west, Disneyland to the south, and Magic Mountain to the north. How could students ever decide on where to go? " The decision on where to go is usually pretty easy for me, " answers Chris Uejio, a first- y e a r environmental science student. " I think 3rd Street Promenade is the best place to go. There are plenty of stores to walk in and out of and the all the performers are great to watch. It ' s free entertainment. Don ' t miss Mr. Animation! " Amy Spitzer, a second-year psychobiology student agreed, " 3rd Street Promenade is the place to get great shopping, great food, and a great place to go with friends.

Los Angeles. To say its name is to evoke images of movie stars, beaches, and cars. L.A., the rightful home of the freeway and the stage ' three smog alert, was a bastion of the nation ' s car culture. Yet, for many UCLA students driving was not an option. Limited parking and congested traffic conditions meant finding an alternative way to UCLA. Students in the dorms and nearby apartments usually found walking the most efficient way to get to their classes. Every morning Bruin Walk and Sunset Boulevard swarmed with groggy students making their way to class. Although this walk could take 30 minutes from some apartments, UCLA ' s sunny weather and beautiful campus made the endeavor an enjoyable affair. According to Willard Hu, a fourth ' year political science student, " I enjoy walking to class because sometimes I By Matthew Heyn will run into people I know... I enjoy seeing people going to class, how they ' re dressed and stuff. " For those coming from Santa Monica, Culver City, Hollywood, West L.A., and Palms, the bus was a popular option. UCLA was served by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), The Culver City Bus Lines, and The Santa Monica Big Blue Bus. The Big Blue Bus alone had five lines that stopped at UCLA ' s bus terminal along Hilgard Avenue, and for 50 cents (a quarter extra for transfers), the bus would deliver to areas as far off as Downtown L.A. and Los Angeles International Airport. When time was a big constraint, commuters to UCLA traded in their walking shoes and bus tokens for wheels of a different type. Unlike the cars, motorcycles and scooters had no trouble finding parking ultra close to their classes. Motorcycles could park in Lot 5, Lot 8, near the Inverted Fountain, near Ackerman Union, adjacent to the law school and just about any place they could wedge their wheels on Westwood Boulevard curbs. Another advantage of the motorcycle was the ability to " share lanes " with cars, giving them the ability to whiz through gridlocked traffic by riding between the lanes of cars. The evening vanpool was established as a way to keep a low incidence of rape for students returning home late at night. The vans would pick up tired students every fifteen minutes from various places on campus and safely whisk them to their dorm rooms or apartments. Whatever form of transportation used, students -were always in a hurry to get where they were going, be it class or home. A student saves time travelling to his classes by riding a bicycle. In addition to parking lots, many bike racks were located on campus to accommodate the students who needed a place to park their bikes. A student arrives to school on his motorcycle.

Take a stroll down Bruin Walk and you ' ll see evidence, not only of the unique people that walked past you, but also the different ethnic organizations that promoted themselves. There were a total of 26 cultural s t u d e organizations campus, addressing the many issues of the different ethnic groups. Ethnic ' based organizations gave students of similar backgrounds and origins, a chance to meet and share traditions and history. The main goal of the organizations was to give an opportunity for people to interact. Many of these cultural based groups were known on campus for sponsoring events such as talent shows, to smaller activities, where the members simply got together and talked. Getting involved in a cultural group was usually very simple. Most advertised on Bruin Walk, where students dropped by a table, talked to members of the cultural organization and got information on meeting times. Generally, groups had meetings on campus. Orientation meetings were held for many groups in the beginning of the school year to introduce members to the club. Occasionally, groups also held each ethnic group can get together to become familiar with their culture through the clubs. But, the down side to it is that because of all the organizations that we have, sometimes culture groups tend to become cliquish. And as diverse as we are at UCLA, we become segregated. " " I don ' t think that they should be officially be sponsored by the University, " Herbert Quan, a fourth-year political science and economics student said. " I ' m not against their existence... The University should allow cultural organizations to exist, but it shouldn ' t be funded by the University. " No matter how students felt about the effects of cultural groups, or the financial income of the organizations, cultural associations have been a part of our lives.

Having often worked on their high school newspapers, many students came to UCLA in order to experience the University ' s renowned writing opportunities, catering to a wide variety of interests and audiences. Seven newsmagazines are based on the community they serve, such as Al- Talib, the Muslim magazine at UCLA; Ha ' am for the Jewish community; La Gente de Aztlan for the Chicano Latino community; Nommo serves the African American community; Pacific Ties, for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community; TenPercent for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender comuunity; and Fern for feminists. Each newsmagazine worked to provide information not only to their own communities, but also to everyone who wanted to read the publications. The newsmagazines published issues twice a quarter. Thus, the newsmagazines were extremely valuable to the community in multiple ways. Sakeena Mirza, editor of Al-Talib, and third ' year Arabic student, discussed how the newsmagazines can become one ' s entire life. " I ' ve worked on it for two years. I first heard about it in high school and my dream was to come to UCLA and work on Al-Talib, " said Mirza. " I came here and I started in advertising and I ended up as editor. It ' s taught me life skills and given me more of a closer insight to the community than school has, " said Mirza. In addition to these seven newsmagazines, ASUCLA Student Media includes the Daily Bruin, Bruinlife Yearbook and UCLA Radio. The Daily Bruin, with a circulation rate of 20,000, has responsibly informed its readers of current events since 1919. In addition to being UCLA ' s major news provider, the Daily Bruin also provided students with employment opportunities. Lindy Shibata, a fourth-year design student stated that " The Daily Bruin is a great place to work. I acquire experience and knowledge while giving people valuable information that they need. " With looming deadlines and little sleep, the staff of ASUCLA Student Media supplemented their academic careers with the fulfilling and demanding opportunities provided in writing and communication for and about the UCLA community.

The Regent Scholars Society and the Undergraduate Science out of place and lost in the crowd Journal provided certain students of about 35,000 here at UCLA. with identity through association. Nationally recognized academic societies such as the Golden Key National Honor Society and Mortar Board not only provided prestige and an extra line on resumes, but also a means to meet fellow students. These two national academic organizations recognized and encouraged scholastic achievement and excellence in all undergraduate fields of study. Specific academic organizations like Phi Alpha Theta, the international honor society in history, Pi Sigma Alpha, the nationally recognized political science honor society and even the Political Science Student Organization (PSSO) sought to promote academic excellence with The Student Alumni Association brings Los Angeles High School students to spread holiday cheer to handicapped children.

Special interest student groups, from numerous newsmagazines to California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG), to the unique Bruin Belles Service Association, constructed and implemented various activities designed to help the community in their own way. Some of the organizations have won national awards. The UCLA Advertising and Marketing Team participated in a nation ' wide competition to promote and advertise a new product. In 1999, they won first place in the USA in a competition held in Washington, D.C. This year they developed a campaign for The New York Times. Environmental groups like CALPIRG organized beach clean-ups By Peter Pham and Erin Rattazzi and sought to educate the community about the dangers about polluting the earth. For basically any interest, however remote, there exists a group for it. Other groups include African Arts Ensemble, Animal Welfare and Best Buddies, a mentorship program to improve the lives of those with developmental difficulties. At UCLA it was easy to form a group, if one didn ' t exist. Many students often found themselves joining several organizations as a way to meet people and supplement their internal growth at UCLA. UCLA Bruin Belles Service Association is UCLA ' s official and oldest community ' linked service organization. Its members officially represented UCLA in services provided to the university and the outlying community. Bruin Belles differed from many other special interest organizations in many such respects. Primarily, the organization was entirely composed of women committed to community service. " It ' s something I really enjoyed doing. I enjoyed signing up for events and going to the weekly meetings, " said Kelly Thomasson, a third ' year biology student. Bruin Belles was involved with the annual Three-on- Three Tournament, Meals on Wheels, beach clean-ups, Halloween Trick-or- Treating for canned goods and the Saint Anne ' s Maternity Home for pregnant teens, to name a few. Whether participating in special service organizations or by simply cleaning up the beaches, dedicated UCLA students found a device to give back to the community.

Six different students drank well over their capacity, and six times ambulances were needed to bring students to the hospital. Although this rash poisoning was a high for the residence halls, the incidence of alcohol poisoning on campus was not a rare one. Almost every weekend some student needed to be hospitalized for partying a little too hard. Moreover, the six poisonings that were reported that weekend were not the only ones experienced by UCLA students. This did not count those students in fraternities, sororities and on ' Campus housing who did not report these incidents. Alcoholism was especially apparent to students this year as MIT reported its fir st alcohol ' related death in the school ' s history. As an initiation for rushing a fraternity, an MIT student was locked into a closet KROQ radio station promotes a Spring Break free of alcohol on the window of a store.

Some fraternities, including Theta Chi, promoted dry events, but drinking remained a problem at these occasions. UCLA had taken efforts to fight the rampant amounts of binge drinking (defined as having more than four drinks at a sitting). Among the efforts was a popular media campaign that ran in the Daily Bruin called " Done 4.

Lynn Nishimura Lynn Nishimura ' , tynn Nishimura iving in an age where violence was around every corner, many people took extra precaution to protect themselves. People installed alarms to protect their homes and automobiles or carried pepper spray to protect themselves in case of attack. In addition to pepper spray, many women took self defense classes in order to learn the skills they needed to be safe. At a self-defense class, women learned how to protect themselves from an attacker. Not only did they learn the skills to get away when confronted by an attacker, but they also learned how to avoid situations where one becomes a likely target. In metropolitan areas such as Los By Carrey Wong Angeles, some women found it more comforting to know how to handle an offender. Twice a quarter, the Women ' s Resource Center offered self-defense classes to the women of the UCLA community. The classes took place in the John Wooden Center and was completely free to everyone who was interested. Although not everyone took advantage of the classes, most agreed that self-defense was a good skill to learn. Nina Lin, a second-year computer science and engineering student said, " I think they [self- defense classes] are necessary because violence does happen and women need to be prepared for unexpected situations. " Aviva Roller, a second-year political science student, took a self- defense class. Although the class she took was not at UCLA, she thought that " self-defense classes teach you some practical things. It teaches you how to get out of little things like how not to get raped and how not to get in a bad situation. I think their presence makes people feel better, but UCLA is generally pretty safe. The self-defense classes make people feel better, more self-confident to be outside at night. " Whether women took advantage of the class or not, the option of learning the important skills to protect one ' s self was available. Next time you ' re out in a dark alley by yourself, those skills that you learned from the classes sponsored by the Women ' s Resource Center might just come in handy. Aiming high, this Bruin punches the sand bag, pretending it to be a perpetrator. Women felt safer after they took a course on how to punch an attacker correctly.

Students who signed up for these sports had not only a chance to play the sport they love, but also got to achieve the rewarding feeling of camaraderie which only comes from being part of a team. Passer-bys commonly saw a variety of sports being played on the intramural field, such as football, rugby, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, ultimate frisbee and golf. Prospective players formed teams with their friends, or teams that were based on pre-established groups such as dorm floors, the Marching Band, or student clubs. During winter quarter, many of By Kevin Lee the field sports were cancelled because of construction work on the intramural field. Common indoor sports included basketball, badminton, bowling, volleyball, hockey, fencing and indoor soccer. " We had our games in either Pauley Pavilion or the Wooden Center. The most beneficial effect of joining IM basketball was the exercise as well as the team collaboration. I enjoyed the fact that I could play a fair game of basketball with my peers, " commented Kenneth Tarn, a second- year chemistry student and avid IM basketball player. A number of sports clubs received very little funding and had to provide their own money to compete as a team. For example, Bowling Team had to work hard to fund their equipment and travel expenses. " We had to pay for our practice, bowling equipment and uniforms. Most of our tournaments were in Northern California. All the lodging travel, food and bowling equipment were all incurred by us, " said Leonardo Guiala, a fifth-year sociology and Asian American studies student and manager of the Bowling Team. Other outdoor sports which are performed off campus are: surfing, crew, cycling, hockey and skiing. " The ski team was very laid back, " said Ramsey Samara, a second-year biology student. " It wasn ' t about competition, but just having a good time skiing. Most people, including me, join just for a low lift ticket price to Mammoth and free lodging.

In the fall of ' 99, UCLA hosted approximately 1,900 international students and scholars from 115 countries. Additionally, UCLA also had students from all 50 states. As a public university funded by the government, UCLA had to give priority to its International flags hang outside of the Tom Bradley International Student Center. The student center offered international dishes as part of its lunch and dinner take-out menus. Julia Kwan The tuition and fees for out ' of- state students were about four times higher. While California residents paid $3,863 for tuition and other fees, out ' of-state and international students had to pay $13,437. This was aside from other expenses such as room and board, estimated at about $8,000 annually. Plus, local students. But do not be misled. We are not talking about any California stude nt. We are talking about the creme de la creme. The average GPA of the entering freshman class was 4.08; 97 percent of the entering freshman class belonged to the top 10 percent of their high schools, putting UCLA among the top in the nation. Because of UCLA ' s priorities and the quality of admitted students, out-of ' State and international students faced an even more rigorous competition to earn the title of a Bruin. In addition to the rigorous the cost of moving to California also had to be factored in. Yet, despite the rigor of competition and the cost of attendance, UCLA continued to attract thousands of applicants outside of California. Pakistani senior business economics student Hassan Farid did not seem to mind neither the competition nor the cost. " UCLA is known all over the world! " he said.

Over 80% of these students transferred from community colleges. Many of these students were older, and were happy with their decision to go back to school. Michael Lewis, a 53 year old, third ' year political science student, decided to attend college later on in life, rather than straight out of high school. " I chose UCLA because it has one of the best political science programs in America. It is also very accessible.

This exciting location provided UCLA with the unique opportunity to be at the hub of growth, wealth and power with lasting implications for the thousands of students who walked through its hallowed halls. Decades ago, " calendar girls " like Marilyn Monroe were adorned in males ' rooms as icons of feminine beauty and sexuality. Today the standards of beauty have shifted, but our ideals remained secure in their position, thumbtacked to the walls of our home. This was not to say that women didn ' t a lso beautify their walls. Abercrombie and Fitch models were the objects of drool for many a young lady. A new generation of superstars has arisen in the last few years, making By Erin Rattazzi millionaires and box office sensations out of actors not much older (and sometimes younger) than the average undergraduate student. The new flux of actors included Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman and Leonardo DiCaprio. The music scene of late has been cited for its lack of quality, abundance of indistinguishable one ' hit wonders, and the absence of rock whose last triumphant stand came in the early ' 90s with the Seattle ' based grunge movement, led by Nirvana and Soundgarden. While bands like Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and Tool, still remained to provide rock fans with alternatives to the teenage boy bands and " bubble gum " sounds of female pop stars, the edginess that prevailed in the early ' 90s has been lost in today ' s mainstream music culture. " There ' s no variety in the groups today, " said Robert McCauley, an undeclared second-year student. " I think that ' s how music works though, someone comes out with something new and then everyone imitates it, so there ' s a period when everything sounds the same, but eventually it evolves. " UCLA ' s location made it the perfect spot for celebrities, who wanted to continue their careers, while obtaining their degrees. Many others have used UCLA as a stepping stone for their future success. Famous past and current students include Ben Stiller, Michelle Kwan, directors Francis Ford Coppola and Rob Reiner, and Superior Court Judge Lance Ito, most famous for presiding over " the trial of the century " with accused murder O.J. Simpson, a USC student. Overall, UCLA students found plenty of opportunities to mix in their academics while enjoying the Los Angeles mega- industry of entertainment. Students watched young adult television shows such as " Felicity " because of its similarity to college life. Many students felt they could relate to the characters ' situations.

" For the 1999-2000 school year, Jobs were an important way of California resident students paid $4,404.50 in mandatory fees to attend UCLA. This was a very small sum compared to the tuition of USC, where tuition was estimated at $22,000. Despite this, students still had difficulties in paying the cost of education. For these students, the Financial Aid and Student Loan Service offices became a necessary part of their education. There they often met with long lines, confusion, and disappointment.

The Associated Students of UCLA offered many jobs in food services, but these tended to be in the lower end of the pay scale. Better jobs were available in Westwood, Santa Monica, and Century City. At the other end, budgets kept manageable by economizing. Living in apartments and commuting from home seemed to save students ' money over living in the dorms.

The decrease in the number of students from traditionally underrepresented ethnic groups troubled many students. UCLA ' s Law School staged a protest to encourage diversity in the Law School, as did many student groups. Proposition 209, sometimes called the " equal opportunity initiative, " was put on the ballot in November of 1996 and passed soon after. Despite legal challenges, it prevailed in California, and greatly affected the school ' s admission policies and the way that certain programs such as Academic Advancement Program (AAP), were administered. It required that no preferential treatment be given to a student based on race, or gender. Student and civil rights groups have been protesting it since. They A student expresses his feelings on a megaphone. Many students were upset by the decreasing number of minorities admitted to the school. attempt to enhance the diversity of the student body by preferring some students over others. Since then, higher numbers of Caucasian and Asian students have been admitted at the expense of other racial groups. AAP now offers tutoring that is based more on income than race. Where AAP has left off, other groups have stepped in. African American, Asian American, Native American, and Latino a retention groups formed through the Men ' s Gym have weakened the effect of ending AAP by offering tutoring services to those that might not otherwise qualify. Also countering this decline, Movimiento Estudiantal Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) and other ethnic programs have begun outreach programs to inner ' city schools where there are more children from underrepresented ethnic claimed that the preferential groups.

The parking situation at UCLA was a headache to many students who found themselves having to figure out just how to get to school. Did they take the bus and spend much needed time waiting and waiting? Or did they just drive their own car? The problem was: where did students park their cars here at UCLA? Ramona Kadkhodazadeh, a fourth ' year anthropology student, was among the lucky ones. She got to park in Lot 32, which wasn ' t exactly the choice parking lot at UCLA. " It ' s far away from campus, the shuttles are always full, and they never leave on time. At nighttime it is sometimes scary to get to my car. I think it can be dangerous in a parking garage at night, especially one that is so far from campus, " she said. Kadkhodazadeh did not receive a parking permit her first year at UCLA. " I worked and lived in the By Gina Marie Turcketta Valley, so I ' d have to leave my house two hours earlier to make it to class on time. I would park my car at my friend ' s house and drive in with her. That was such a hassle, " she explained. Kristina Gordon, a fifth-year sociology student, also had her share of hassles in dealing with the parking situation. " I applied for parking, but got denied because the parking department said I still lived in Richer Hall, where I hadn ' t lived for two years. I lived in Ventura County, which is an hour drive away ... but I still was not given a parking permit. I finally went to the head of the parking department, and was given parking in Lot 32, " she said. Gordon was not concerned with safety issues surrounding the parking lots. " I am not that concerned with danger. I have a brown belt in karate, so I can take care of myself, " she said. Gordon was concerned, however, with the operations of the parking department. She thought they needed to make new parking structures before they close a parking structure down. They created Lot 4 to replace Lot 14, but it couldn ' t hold as many cars as Lot 14. Freshman Ross Wolf, an electrical engineering student, contended that dorm residents needed parking spaces just as anyone else. " I believe that parking for on ' Campus residents is necessary in some situations. As I understand it, parking passes are given more or less based on one ' s needs, like if they have a job off campus. Some students need these jobs in order to pay for school, " he explained. Several attempts were made to speak with parking enforcement officers, as well as parking services before the writing of this article, but to no avail. The bottom line was, everyone seemed to be affected by the lack of parking at UCLA. Needless to say everyone was hoping that a solution will arise very soon. Private lots near campus made high profits because of students desperate for parking. This parking lot on Le Conte Avenue and Broxton Avenue was a popular alternative that sold out despite its high prices.

Almost immediately, the implicated players who still played for the football team were placed on suspension. Then, the spin machine sent the message out to the media: the problem was restricted to just some football players, and the players only used the placards to circumvent the extreme difficulties in getting assigned parking passes. But we all have seen the way cars lined up on the access roads in the heart of the campus, proudly displaying the blue placard that not only got them premium space to Dodd Hall, Math Sciences Building, and fact, cheating on parking was common on campus. It ranged from the minor erasing of the chalk ' inarks that mark tires for the two hour restrictions, to giving incorrect information on parking applications about residences and carpooling status, to stealing passes out of cars with open windows, to parking in lot Parking is hard to find in a place like 32 on weekends, Los Angeles.

Despite many increased enforcement efforts, students continued to find ways to cheat the system. The economics -were simple: if not buying a permits got a $30 ticket one out of seven times, it was worth finding a way to not buy the permits. With parking spaces reaching such a premium, students were ready and willing to do just about anything for space. In their desperation, students were lost in a culture of cheating.

Jeremy Atuso Courtesy ofJudd Jacobs By Matthew Heyn October 12 marked the beginning of National Coming Out Week. But the fun and festivities designed to promote gay pride hit a particularly sour note when hate reared its ugly head on campus. A group of demonstrators representing many religious groups including the Christian Anti-Defamation league came to Westwood Plaza to protest homosexuality. The demonstrators gathered around Westwood Plaza at noon with signs proclaiming " REPENT or PERISH. " Their speeches were just as blunt as their placards. Opposition such as this occurred throughout the year. The Knight Initiative, which sought to outlaw marriage between two members of the same sex, polarized members of the UCLA community. The issue was especially politically potent given that Hawaii had begun to marry same-sex couples. Despite this opposition, the University offered a great deal of support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Groups like the Lesbian Bisexual, Transgender Faculty Staff Network, and Mahu API LGBT Support Group helped students cope with homosexual issues and offered visibility and advocacy for UCLA students and staff. At the Anderson School of Law, the Lesbian, Bisexual, and Gay Alliance provided a supportive community to promote awareness of sexual orientation issues in the legal profession. Moreover, the UCLA peer-help line provided a non-judgmental ear where LGBT students could voice their concerns. TenPercent, one of UCLA ' s special interest newsmagazines, focused on addressing some of the homosexual issues in print. Its topics ranged from gay arts and artists to events in the community, to political advocacy. Throughout the tumultuous year, UCLA provided its gay community with an ability to feel pride in who they were. LA Pride is where everyone can express their sexual orientations. Many people gathered together joyously wearing creative costumes for the parade. UCLA ' s many student media newmagazines include TenPercent.

Ah 1 he thought of for that moment was how soft, warm, and comforting his bed would be once he slipped under its ample covers. Many students at UCLA had to deal with the demands of working a job off campus. These students made effective efforts to supplement the financial aid given them through state grants money in tips which could make them as much as $100 a night. Still, other students searched for job opportunities elsewhere. In their search, students often found the EXPO Internship and Study Abroad Services and Career Centers very helpful. In these centers, students got advice on resumes, were critiqued in mock interviews, and surfed the Web for job listings. Invaluable to students were the extensive scholarships, and parental aid. For listings of paid and unpaid them, life as a student was not as internships offered at the center, easy as the college movie Through these listings, students stereotype.

" Job opportunities could also be found in residential housing on the UCLA campus. One such job was working at the front desk for a particular dorm, in which the student took care of the daily administration for that dorm. " Our job at the front desk was to assist residents in their everyday living needs, like handling mail, issuing coupons for lunch and dinner, taking work orders, organizing housekeeping, overseeing RA duties, etc... Basically, we were there to serve as a central place for monitoring the quality of student life on campus, " said Sunset Village front desk worker, May Tseng, a second ' year electrical engineering student. Other jobs related to residential housing were available in Dining Services, in which the student was responsible for setting up the dining halls and serving food to on-campus housing residents. Those who wanted to take a more academic approach in their work- experience -worked as a research assistant for a professor. Being a research assistant usually involved a lot of clerical work, such as making copies, finding publications, and recording entries.

Depending on your position, they actually pay you for being on the band. " The Marching Band spent countless hours rehearsing for its performances, including an intense two-week band camp before the start of school and By Kevin Lee nine hours of regular practice every week during the football season. Most of the band members looked forward to going to all of the football games. As conveyed by Kelley Rogers, a second ' year communication studies student, " For me, the best part of the game is cheering with the entire student section. You can hardly hear yourself because everyone around you is so loud. " The Marching Band performed either as a full ensemble for home and local football games, or as a smaller " pep " band for away games. Marching Band contributed to many other activities besides football, including playing at other sports, making recordings, and being invited to appear in various tapings for movies or music videos. The Varsity Band, a select group of marching band members, performed at all Men ' s and Women ' s home and USC Basketball games as well as all NCAA Basketball Tournament games. The band has produced two albums so far, and the day after the USC game this year, the band was in Ackerman Union recording for its next album.

Its lecture halls, public spaces, and classrooms served as a public forum for the exchange of the most current ideas, theories, and research. The campus attracted such important figures as Jesse Jackson, John Malkovitch, World Bank President James Wolfensohn, Assemblyman Rod Wright, and actor Kirk Douglas. UCLA Campus Events arranged for many of the speakers to visit the campus. They often arranged for speakers from the movies to accompany a screening of their production. During the fall quarter, director Rob Riener gave a talk about his " The Story of Us " and screened it before it came out in theaters. Ajmal Ahmady In a large lecture hall, this guest speaker describes his area of interest. Turnouts for guest speakers were usually so large that lecture halls were booked for their visit. Colloquiums and symposiums brought academics from the across the country and the world to speak to students and their academic peers. Significant among these were the colloquiums offered by the philosophy the whole campus a place of learning, department. Every quarter they brought in five speakers from different universities. Interest in these colloquiums was so great that these speakers filled 1 50 person lecture halls with the best and brightest of many different academic departments. Last year, the human genetics symposium, a three day collection of speakers sponsored by many different departments, drew crowds so large that the speeches were telecasted over a closed circuit to stack seating in nearby classrooms. Political speakers were also present on the UCLA Campus. Protests against the end of affirmative action and calling for the end of institutionalized racism, drew many important speakers to campus. Moreover graduations attracted our society ' s leaders to give inspiring words to the academic achievement and importance to the future. With so many opportunities to see important figures, undergraduates had many opportunities to learn outside of the classroom. The public forum that UCLA offered made Susan Faludi, author of " Stiffed " , was invited by the UCLA Bookstore to talk about her work at the Charles E. Young Grand Salon. Students who were interested in attending Book Series lectures only had to open the Daily Bruin to find out information about them.

Many stores used candles to create a haunting atmosphere. UCLA students hand out candy and good cheer. Students in the dorm participated by giving treats to visiting underprivileged kids. Lynn Nishimura Jackie Honda Every year, Halloween was the perfect time to dress outrageously and gorge on candy. It was the time for scary tales and young children dressed as even scarier Pokemon characters. But for most UCLA students, Halloween was simply another reason to party. Many of those living off-campus like Susie King, a third-year psychology student, " went to party around the apartments with friends and cruised around Westwood all dressed up. " Her friends joined numerous students who simply hung out in Westwood. This past Halloween featured costumes including not only the usual frankensteins and draculas, ghosts, and werewolves, but also outfits like butterflies, cross-dressers, army personnel, cowboys, doctors, and the infamous Monica Lewinsky costume. It appeared A friendly face greets trick-or- treaters. Although immersed in school work, some students still found time to carve pumpkins and make jack-o-lanterns. that most students considered Halloween to be the perfect opportunity to become another person or monster in some cases. Other activities on Halloween included attending a Long Beach Allstar ' s concert, the Halloween All-Hill Dance at the dorms, Knotts Scary Farm, and even the traditional trick-or-treating in nearby neighborhoods. " It was my first time to Knotts Scary Farm, and it was frightening. I will definitely go again next year, " said undeclared freshman Graham Johnson. Also, in the traditional spirit of Halloween, Nathan Smith, a fourth-year economics student, " drank and stayed up all night watching scary movies with my friends. " Whether it was a relaxing night with friends, or a party trip around Westwood, most UCLA students enjoyed this night of horrors. Events y.

A large number of the job fairs were organized and put on by on-campus student organizations, such as UCLA Business Associ ation, and the Student Accounting Society. A popular type of job fair set-up was a " social mixer " in which representatives from the different companies stood by their tables or walked around to interact with the students.

These companies often held separate speaker series to talk about new advances in their field of business. " The job fairs helped to open my eyes to the business world and the importance of getting a job and talking professionally to people, said Jason Young, a fourth-year international economics student and another member of UCLA Business Association. " However, typically, the elite firms have no need to go to job fairs, because they seem to wait for the ambitious people to find them, rather than go to the masses. " One of the benefits of a job fair was forming contacts with the different companies to facilitate the possibility of securing a job with those companies in the future. " Last summer I had a chance to do an internship at State Farm [Insurance] through my contacts. This following summer, I will probably use my contacts again to find a different internship, " said Loo. Job fairs were a great resource for students to explore the bountiful number of career choices they Job fairs frequently featured the " Big Five, " the will have once they graduate from college.

By Kevin Lee UCLA Caught on Film In some respects, UCLA was much like a casually-used movie studio. It was not uncommon for the ordinary UCLA student to walk by an elaborate set-up of lights, reflection screens and funny props as actors and members of the film crew worked hard to shoot a scene for a movie or TV series. Over the years, UCLA has been a choice spot for many media tapings, from " Scream 2 " in front of Kerckhoff Hall to beer commercials in the Los Angeles Tennis Center. UCLA, with its majestic buildings and pristine landscaping, provided a perfect backdrop for many movie and show tapings. A variety of TV shows have shot scenes on the UCLA campus. Many of the popular young adult TV shows such as " Felicity, " " Dawson ' s Creek, " " Buffy: The Vampire Slayer " and " Party of Five, " chose to shoot scenes at UCLA for its pleasant, distinguished college setting. A taping was done between Moore Hall and the Career Center for " Party of Five. " " There was what appeared to look like snow but which were actually soap bubbles everywhere, " reflected Philip Katz, a second-year music student. " I got to catch a glimpse of Mindy Ross Positioning his camera, a camera man prepares to shoot the scene. Whenever there was a taping on campus, studio equipment was everywhere. doing the taping and looking on. I think I saw the woman who plays Scully walking out of her trailer! " commented Vicky Chang, a second-year biology student. Nearly the same number of box-office movies as TV shows were taped on campus. A major reason why so many tapings were done at UCLA is its close proximity to Hollywood. A scene of " What Lies Beneath, " a film starring Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer, was taped on the intramural field. " You could see all the make-up trucks lined up on the field, " remembered John Leitch, a second-year political science student. Another taping from the previous year was done for " Mafia " in front of Royce Hall. " All I remember was that there was so much equipment! " reminisced Bruce Woo, a third-year computer science and engineering student. In addition, the premiere of " Prince of Egypt " was shown in Royce Hall, to which many celebrities, including Mariah Carey, came to attend. The average UCLA student had the rare opportunity to see their favorite stars as they filmed for an the make-up lady putting make-up on Neve Campbell ' s upcoming movie or TV series.

Donating blood was one way for the Bruins to demonstrate their domination over the Trojans. Julia Kwan If kicking a Trojan, pinning a Trojan on a Trojan, and dragging Trojan voodoo dolls on the ground were among your favorite past times, then you came to the right place. There was definitely no place on earth, not even during the time of the Trojan wars, where the Trojans were as much a playful object of mockery and ridicule as they were at UCLA. The gap between current students and alumni disappeared when it came to attitude on the USC ' UCLA rivalry. Never did Bruin pride become more evident than when the very mention of the word Trojan came up and with good reason. In football, UCLA had been dominating USC for almost a decade until this past football season. A week before that dreaded game, the entire UCLA community was in a hype, hoping that they would score " 9 in ' 99. " The week began with a car smash at Westwood Plaza. Bruins demonstrated their opposition for the Trojans as they smashed a car painted with graffiti expressive of remarks against USC. On the sides, there were other fun activities, all in the name of mocking that school in the other side of town. Then, there was also " Get the Red Out, " a campaign for blood donation, while at the same time another way of stripping USC of their color. Students, faculty, and staff, including UCLA Chancellor Albert Smash that car! Students took turns in hammering a car with USC written all over it at Westwood Plaza. Roberto Reyes Ang Carnesale, outclassed USC in a blood donation campaign. On Thursday of that week, students, alumni, and fans gathered at the intramural field for the much ' awaited Beat ' SC bonfire. The band played and the cheerleaders danced while the Bruin family united in bashing USC. The Trojans were called all kinds of names: from the " University of Second Class " to " University of Spoiled Children. " First-year molecular cell and developmental biology student Ben Talei proudly proclaimed " UCLA is a better school! " He said he only slightly considered USC because they offered him a generous scholarship. Yet despite the offer, he still chose to go to UCLA. Freshman political science student Pat Cope shared the same pride of rejecting USC ' s offer admission and deciding to go to UCLA. He, like Talei, believes that UCLA has a better academic program. UCLA may not have won the game this year. Yet Bruin pride remained intact. Beat ' SC Week is actually a misnomer, for the Bruin ' s celebration of their claim of superiority over the Trojans is one that goes on the whole year round. USC may have won a football match against UCLA, but Bruins will be Bruins, and on this side of town, Trojans will remain just that, " only Trojans.

The Northridge Earthquake made sizable damages to UCLA ' s prestigious hospital, a 1 95 1 vintage structure. Since then, UCLA has slowly been bracing for a new hospital. Declaring that it will set the standard for medical care in the new millennium, the $1.3 billion hospital and research complex was scheduled to arrive in 2004. The ten story, one- million square foot hospital was created by a team headed by renowned architect I. M.

What began with Covel Commons and the Tom Bradley International Student Center, will finish -with De Neve Plaza, a 1,258 bed dorm of the future with an 850 seat dining room, a 3,800 foot auditorium, a 430-seat lecture hall, and two computer labs. However, given UCLA ' s history, future students at UCLA should look forward to more construction. The stringent new California seismic safety standards that more UCLA stayed the same, the more it got changed, take effect in 2008.

On the UCLA campus where the opportunities to share ones talents abound, many students have taken to performances as a means of expressing themselves. Throughout the year, many students have performed for the UCLA community and its surrounding neighbors. These student presentations have varied in style as much as those who present them. A part of student performances on the UCLA campus were the cultural events that hundreds of students have participated in each year, including Samahang Filipino ' s ' Filipino Culture Night. ' During such culture nights, student did various performances ranging from traditional dances, to singing in choirs and even ushering people to their seats. These performances not only gave students the opportunity to showcase their talents to the public, but also provided a means for them to teach and learn about different cultures while having fun and socializing at the same time. Yet another aspect of student performances on campus were the numerous bands that played at Westwood Plaza at noon and even in the Kerckhoff Coffeehouse. Students were able to perform for their fellow students, faculty and staff, while waiting between classes. Such forms of showcasing talent and entertainment were warmly welcomed by audiences and the performers. Chen further summed up the benefits of being a student performer by stating, " it gives me a pathway to express myself through another form and puts me in a trance. I think another LCC cast member said it all when he wrote, ' ...there are only a few moments in your entire life when you ' re really alive... whenever you ' re on stage, or whenever you ' re hearing your work produced to the best human ability is capable of, you ' re there...

In an ever increasingly violent and chaotic world, everyone must take those extra precautions. For one San Diego family, their worst nightmare came true when their son, freshman Michael Negrete, vanished during fall quarter finals week. " It was shocking, " said Kelly Richardson, a second ' year Spanish student. " At UCLA, it ' s easy to get entangled in your everyday life of school, work, and friends. You never believe that anything truly horrible will ever happen. One lives in a tiny bubble of delusion, which was completely shattered by Mike ' s disappearance. " The freshman disappeared from the sixth floor of Dykstra Hall on December 10, after playing a computer game with a friend. He was last seen wearing a plaid shirt and short khaki pants. Mary Ciecek Daily Bruin Senior Staff Friends from UCLA write messages of hope and love to Negrete. The UCLA community banned together to pray for Negrete and devised fund raising methods to help support the search efforts. " The only area that I ever feel concerned about is toward the end of Bruin Walk because it ' s not as well lit as the rest of the campus. But other than that, I ' ve never worried. " Even if Negrete left voluntarily, many parents were left worrying about the physical and mental safety of their children. " When Brian is at home, I know what he is doing at pretty much every moment of the day, " said Virginia Welch, mother of first-year student, Brian Welch. " I know that he couldn ' t just up and vanish in the middle of the night. But at school, anything can happen. A kid begins to feel invincible.

Missing Student 147 GOES By Matthew Heyn UCLA in Chaos An old UCLA tradition turned sour last fall when 19 people were arrested and dozens detained by police, thereby attracting the attention of the administration, community members and television news media. The traditional Finals Week Midnight Yell, to release stress, got out of control when students on Glenrock Avenue started fires and threw bottles and eggs at law enforcement officers. The January I Oth issue of the Daily Bruin reported that Wednesday night of the fall finals week, as many as 700 students were reported to be in the streets to see the events. Chancellor Albert Carnesale condemned what some reporter called " riots, " saying, " As members of the Westwood community, we abhor this activity by students or by anyone else. " It all started Monday night when firefighters responded to a call that a couch was burning in middle of the street. Apparently, students had set it afire as part of the Midnight Yell festivities. When the firefighters extinguished the couch, an unidentified student threw a glass bottle, leading to a minor injury being sustained by the firefighter. Despite it initially being more quiet the second night, the police came prepared, suited in riot ' gear. According to third ' year political science student Laura Gundersheim, " I think that the police didn ' t need to show up in riot gear to control students who were just letting off finals stress. " By the third and fourth nights, Midnight Yell was a media event with students bringing signs and video cameras to capture the conflict between the students and the police. Around 100 police on foot and on motorcycles were present to control the situation. Riot police fired rubber bullets into the crowd and arrested some for failure to disperse. In a particularly egregious violation of civil rights, police kicked in the doors of some apartment tenants on Glenrock Avenue to detain them on suspicion of throwing objects at the law enforcement officers. Those charged for participating in the disturbance were further disciplined by the University and faced penalties of probation and suspension. Students caught yelling in the dorms were given as much as 20 hours of community service. Despite all the trouble, the Midnight Yell tradition will persist.

Gina Turcketta Gina Turcketta eTcomesJHE By Carrey Wong A Night of Peaceful Celebrations On the eve of the year 2000, celebrations around the world were like none ever seen in history. Celebrations from Australia to Hong Kong, Paris to New York, welcomed the new year with fireworks going off and people in the streets counting down the final seconds before 2000 started. However, along with the celebrations, there was also some fear. Not only were we heading for a new millennium, but also there was a wo rid ' wide concern about the problems of the Y2K bug. Many major corporations and government agencies greeted the new year with their breath held, hoping that their computers wouldn ' t fail them when the clock struck 12. As each of the 24 time zones in the world hit midnight, people let out sighs of relief as they turned on their computers and their systems continued to function. There were no major problems, and hardly even a glitch, caused by Y2K. Along with the fear of Y2K, there were also concerns over riots. Most people avoided big parties and decided to stay home. Even those who went out were careful most crowds on the streets dispersed quicker than expected. There were certain security precautions that most major metropolitan cities took, in case of riots. In New York City, for example, sharpshooters kept an eye on the crowd in Times Square from rooftops. New York police also carried anthrax ' antidote kits in case of bioweapons attack. Similar precautions were displayed world ' Wide, both on the streets and at the various concerts. However, the peaceful actions of the people that night relieved the wary police. The night ended early; most crowds on the streets had dispersed by 2 a.m. However, the precaution people felt did not stop them from making New Year ' s Eve any less spectacular. The brilliant fireworks in cities such as Paris, Moscow, and Sydney were among the most extravagant the world has ever seen. Cities like Hong Kong staged shows that cost over $8 million. Seoul ' s show that night included five fake UFOs landing on buildings in downtown. South Africa had a celebration with dancers of every race on its Robben Island. And there were countless concerts, with major celebrities performing to many admiring fans that night. The only disappointment came locally, in Hollywood, as an over ' hyped lighting of the Hollywood sign proved anti ' dimactic with many people complaining about being unable to get close enough to appreciate it. The celebrations that night marked the beginning of a century, full of unexpected surprises and hopes, along with a remembrance of the past that had brought us here. 111 Events In Lake Tahoe, several policemen prepare themselves for any danger that might spark for the coming of the new year.

The Beginning; of Motion Pictures By Reha Modi Running 10 minutes long with only 14 scenes, it ' s credited as the beginning of motion picture history. Made in 1903, the first narrative film was titled " The Great Train Robbery. " Filmed in Delaware and New Jersey, this brief motion picture was an astounding accomplishment in an era of horse and buggy entertainment. Audiences were thrilled to a storyline that today ' s high ' tech consumers would find silly. The film relived the notorious Great Train Robbery, based upon the true story of George Leroy Parker ' s " Wild Bunch, " and their attempt to rob the No. 3 train on the Union Pacific tracks near Table Rock, Wyoming. The bandits forced the conductor to uncouple the passeng er cars from the rest of the train and then blew up the safe in the mail car to escape with about $5,000 in cash. The film also depicts the subsequent police chase and the mounting apprehension of the desperadoes. " The Great Train Robbery " is still considered a milestone in film history because it utilized so many new techniques. Its revolutionary film editing included jump ' Cuts or cross-cuts, that is, showing events happening simultaneously, but in different places. Action-packed in rapid-fire succession, the film shows the bandits fighting with the telegraph operator, the operator ' s daughter finding her father, the recruitment of a dance hall posse to track the bandits, the robbers dividing up the money and the now infamous final shoot-out. Pan shots and the use of an ellipsis were also employed. It was also the first film that included what is now a western cliche, the pivotal scene in which the bad guy forces his enemy to dance by shooting at his feet. Technically, a single film shot illustrated each scene, and just about every shot was long and static, only allowing an eyC ' level view of the camera. So instead of moving camera angles, actors were positioned to create excitement. The ending was another one for the film and history books, a gun pointed straight at the audience and fired into their faces. 159 1 Ufi 1 1910 1 ZM .

On April 14, 1 912, the sinking of the the lUk r4 jjl " unsinkable " Titanic left indelible footprints on humanity ' s heart. The SS cdonoctk Titanic, a mammoth British luxury liner, tragically sank to the bottom of the kbwt sea. Weighing 46,000 gross tons, it was carrying more than 2,200 passengers. Its J red and TjJ ? " AP Wide World Photos maiden trip to New York City was called " the voyage of discovery. " Despite ; repeated iceberg warnings, the crew neither slowed the speed of the great ship jreoi from 22 knots, nor did it perform any precautionary tactics. It was more than halfway to New York when it struck an iceberg and sunk to the bottom of the sea. The boat originally had enough life boats to carry everyone on ship. But for aesthetic reasons, half of the lifeboats were removed prior to launch. Passengers were so sure of the Titanic ' s infallibility that when the crew tried to load them into the remaining lifeboats and carry them to safety, most were launched half empty. By the time the magnitude of the disaster struck the remaining panicked people, their fate was sealed. Within two hours and forty minutes, theTitantic had completely sunk, leaving I ,513 out of the 2,220 passengers to perish in the freezing ocean water. In total, only 705 people survived, making the Titanic, then and now, one of the worse maritime disasters in history. Ironically, a nearby ship, the Californian, was close enough to rescue Titanic passengers, but did not respond to emergency transmissions because the radio operator was asleep. Within the last decade, the mystery of the Titanic ' s final resting spot has been uncovered by scientists. Despite fruitless talk of resurrecting the gargantuan ship, there it remains, at the bottom of the sea. 1920 1921 1922 1923 1924 Prohibition begins with the making of the 1 8th Amendment.

Economic Ups and Downs By Catherine Calleja By 1925, the New York Wall Street had established itself as the world ' s most important stock market. This " Jazz Age, " experienced by the United States, was a time when the United States underwent enormous wealth and development. America asserted itself as a great world power in authority and prosperity which could be seen in quickly emerging cities. An urban growth attributed to the erecting of great buildings and monuments that still stand today, marking the golden era of the 1920s boom in development, technology and economy. From the mid- 1 920s, the United States economy had experienced tremendous growth, but trouble began with the high levels of unemployment. By late 1929, the United States stock market boom underwent a rapid decline with a sudden downward trend in stock market prices. The halt came in October of 1929 when the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street completely collapsed, resulting in a depression that was felt across the Western world for much of the 1930s. Wealthy men were destroyed over night, including James Riordan, President of the County Trust Company, who committed suicide. The crash taught people much about the confidence of the investor and the role in which he plays in his own destruction. 163 1920 1930 1931 1932 Due to the stock market crash of 1 929, three million Americans are out of work.

By Aphrodite Manousos A Challenge to Others Born in 1897, Amelia Earhart, the great aviator, didn ' t encounter a plane until her tenth year. She saw her first airplane at an Iowa State Fair and thought it to be a thing of rusty wire and wood and not at all interesting. Who would have thought that she would go on to break several flying records and attempt a flight around the world? Her fame came with a flight she took over the Atlantic as a passenger. She, not the pilots, got all of the acclaim and even President Calvin Coolidge sent her his congratulations. In 1935 she became the first pilot to make the solo flight from Hawaii to California and began making plans for a flight around the " world. AP wide World Photos Her plans were finally realized on June I, 1937. Despite bad weather and illnesses that plagued the trip, she kept going. Her plane disappeared over the Pacific on July 2, 1937. There was a raft on board whose traces have never been found. President Theodore Roosevelt authorized a search that cost over $4 million and was abandoned on July 18. There have been several theories about her disappearance, including that she was on a spy mission for Roosevelt. Others believe she was caught by the Japanese in WWII. What became of her may never be known, but her spirit, courage, and perseverance will always live on as a staple for all people and for that era as a whole. She died for her passion and believed that women must try and do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others. 185 1930 1940 1941 1942 1943 Japanese dive bombers fly over Pearl Harbor and surprise the United States Navy.

By Catherine Calleja The Second World War Much of the 1940s was remembered for the tragedies that took place during the second world war in which hundreds of thousands of lives were lost not only in battle, but also in prison camps. However, it was not until the end of the war that the world realized the extent of the horrific events that took place beyond the closed doors of the communist forces. The war had taken on a global scale at the end of 1 941 when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. In April of 1945, the Allied forces led by the British, Russians and Americans were able to march into Berlin, bringing the European war to and end. However, the war raged on in the Pacific for several months. After the U.S. dropping of atomic bombs over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki toward the end of 1945, the war in the Pacific came to a quick end with devastating results. The bomb that exploded over Hiroshima vaporized 66,000 people in the first split second and a further 69,000 people were injured.

Although warned by some not to visit Dallas, since Dallas was once known as the " hate capital of Dixie, " Kennedy decided to campaign for re-election in Dallas anyway since he felt he needed to gain as much support as he could with his visit. Kennedy, his -wife Jaqueline, Texas governor John B. Connally and his wife Nellie, drove in an open-top car. The Lincoln reached Dealey Plaza at approximately 12:30 p.m. when the assassination took place. It lasted a mere five seconds and consisted of two shots striking Kennedy.

The entire assassination was filmed on a home movie camera. The presidential Lincoln sped to Parkland Hospital, but Kennedy was already dead. Walter Cronkite, a rookie CBS TV presenter, told the American people at 1:35 p.m. that the president was dead. About twelve hours later at 1:30 a.m. on November 23, Dallas police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald for the assassination of President Kennedy. Oswald denied any knowledge of the assassination. The assassin ' s rifle, found by the police at the Book Depository, further confirmed Oswald ' s involvement in the assassination. The rifle had been bought by Oswald under an assumed name, and a photo of him brandishing the weapon was found. The complete story of the assassination was not known because just two days after the assassination, as Oswald was being transferred from the city jail to the county jail, Jack Ruby ran forward and shot Oswald point blank in the stomach.

The trial of the Watergate burglars had already begun by the time of Richard Nixon ' s re-election. Five men were indicted, two being former FBI agent Gordon Liddy and CIA operative Howard Hunt. However, Judge John Sirica ensured that the case would continue to be investigated. At the same time, two young journalists from the Washington Post, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, received information from an anonymous informant " Deep Throat. " These two journalists were key in uncovering the events of Watergate. By 1973, the walls of secrecy began to tumble down around the president. One by one, Nixon ' s " team " either talked or resigned. In July, 1 973 , a former White House aide revealed that conversations in the presidential Oval Office had been secretly taped, and Nixon was ordered to hand them over. Meanwhile, Nixon ' s vice president Spiro Agnew had been forced to resign because of unrelated tax evasion charges. In a desperate attempt to restore his popularity, Nixon gave his infamous speech, " I am not a crook. " But by that time most Americans no longer believed Nixon. Eventually the tapes proved what the rest of America already suspected. In March, 1974, Nixon was indicted as co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up, and the House Judiciary Committee recommended the impeachment of the president on the grounds of obstruction of justice. On August 8, 1974, President Nixon announced his resignation. Vice President Gerald Ford was sworn in as president the following day, and granted Nixon a " full, free and absolute pardon.

On November 9, East German authorities fell to the wave of democratization sweeping through Eastern Europe. The wall was erected during the night of August 12, 1 96 1 as a result of a law passed by the East German Parliament to prevent the flow of skilled and professional workers who were leaving East Berlin for the more prosperous and free West Berlin. Originally built from barbed wire and cinder blocks, the barbed wire was replaced by a 15 foot concrete wall, with watchtowers manned by machine gun units and electrified fences and minefields.

By Anna Fender Welcome to Cyberspace Wandering past the video arcades on Vancouver ' s Granville Street, science-fiction writer William Gibson was struck by the image of the players ' hunched figures, illuminated by the glowing light of the screens. " I could see in the physical intensity of their postures how rapt the kids were, " he said. " These kids clearly believed in the space the games projected. " In a novel that followed this episode, Gibson introduced the term " cyberspace. " Unbeknownst to the general public, cyberspace was not a science-fiction fantasy. As early as 1969, the first four-way computer network was established by the U.S. Defense Department, fostering the reality of this invisible realm. But it was not until 1 991 , with the release of the first browser for public access to the World Wide Web, that people began to truly recognize the significance of this vast network. As of mid-1999, close to 200 million people around the world were using the Internet. Experts estimate that traffic on the Internet doubles every 9 to 12 months. Services available to us through the Internet are also multiplying rapidly. We are able to bank, shop, pay bills, and order countless varieties of entertainment, all without leaving the house. Social forecasts have thus implied the image of modern man, isolated in his high tech urban castle, as every basic desire becomes a mouse click or two away. Today, eight hair-thin optical fibers can transmit the equivalent of 90,000 encyclopedia volumes in a second. This access to unfathomable sources of information has the potential to revolutionize our perceptions of the world, our systems of knowledge, and future forms of human interaction. 1990 liT Sleep and Live - -I, ' WJltJit: Di : - ,_, ox out or Eugene Wu Through Sproul Hall, on-campus residents can get to the entrance of Caruso ' s Deli, the new Italian eatery.

Having to a share a room with fellow-students provided us an opportunity to learn from and about each other. At UCLA, various housing options were available. The dormitories provided a vibrant neighborhood that allowed for a closer interaction among the residents. The residential suites were more concentrated in smaller clusters, yet opportunities to socialize with people were still abound. The apartments al lowed for more privacy, and somehow encouraged roommates to develop a more family-like structure. Whatever what your preferences were, college life had something to offer you. Remember, to most of us, UCLA was our home away from home. Housing 179 The Student Technology Center helped many students connect to the Internet through Ethernet cards. Each residence hall room came complete with a super-fast connection to the Internet. Lynn Mshimura By Kevin Lee The Delightful Adventures of Moving: In AKh, . . .move-in -weekend. It was a time full of new things and excitement, yet much physical labor and frayed nerves. Of all the busy moments during the school year, this was certainly one of the most hectic. Countless numbers of students with dollies packed high with luggage lined up to use their dorm elevator. Equally long lines of automobiles along Sunset Boulevard and De Neve Drive were stuck in a bumper-to-bumper standstill like mid ' day traffic on the 405. The residential hall move-in weekend took place the Friday through Sunday before classes began fall quarter. Residents who didn ' t care to have the few extra days of free time before classes started could move in even later. In addition, those in fall ' Season sports or the Marching Band had to move in a week or two early to prep for their sport or activity. Matthew Brunnings, a second ' year civil engineering student who had the opportunity to move into his suite a week early because his roommates were in the Marching Band said of his early move ' in that, " there weren ' t very many people around and we had to go to Westwood for meals. However, it was still nice because I wasn ' t stressed out about moving in and neither were my parents. " The Student Technology Center also worked doubly hard during move ' in weekend to provide services to install Ethernet cards into students ' computers and configure them for use in the dorms ' Ethernet connection. Welcome Week assistants arrived on the dorm premises a week early to assist with the move ' in process. Welcome Week responsibilities included decorating the dorms and sitting at help-booths to give directions and answer questions that new residents had about the residential dorm area. Sherry Liu, a second ' year electrical engineering student and Welcome Week assistant for fall 1999, said that her favorite things about Welcome Week were, " decorating...! love decorating! And moving in early so that we beat the traffic. " After settling into their rooms, new students could finally realize that they were in an intermediate stage of domicile, in which they were not quite at home, but were not totally on their own as in the apartments. Residents with randomly- chosen roommates in time learned fully the habits and personality of those strangers that he or she had just shaken hands with. What at first seemed like a hall full of postgraduate high ' Schoolers had, with the help of some energetic Resident Advisors and Program Assistants, hopefully become remembered nostalgically as a " home " full of great friends and fond memories.

Students were allowed to print 1 00 free pages a quarter. Mindy Ross week, between breakfast and If a dorm resident felt like exercising on a treadmill, or needed to type up a paper on a word processor, on-campus housing provided rooms and facilities to fulfill many of such students ' daily needs. Study rooms, computer labs and activity rooms could be found for each dorm on the lobby level or in a nearby building. Students who felt that their floor lounge was too noisy, or who just didn ' t have a lounge because it had been converted into a " lounge ' room " could use the general study lounge for their building. Those who needed the usage of a computer could go to one of five computer labs in the residential halls: Dykstra Hall , Sproul Hall, Rieber Hall, Hedrick Hall, and Sunset Village. Clubs and organizations that wished to put on a newcomers ' meeting or an event could utilize the activity room in one of the dorms. Business and law society events were frequently held in Covel Commons, in which company and firm representatives stood by their display table to talk about their business or organization. The high-rise towers each had recreation rooms for exercise, games and practicing of musical instruments. Said Jaime Wilson ' Chiru, a second-year biology student who frequented the dorm exercise rooms, " I usually use the treadmill in Dykstra Hall about once a week, between breakfast and lunch. " There were also game areas where students could play ping-pong or billiards, or, in the case of Sproul Hall, arcade games. What used to be the Village Arcade in previous years had been downsized and moved to Sproul Hall ' s recreation room this year to serve as a mini-arcade for dorm residents. Finally, the musically-talented could practice their instrument in a music room within one of the high-rise dorms. The student could play the piano that was available in the room, or any other instrument that they had brought along to school. Outdoor recreational facilities included the Rieber Hall basketball courts and Sunset Village Recreational Facility. Kenneth Park, a second-year English student who often played at the Rieber Hall courts, commented " the courts were pretty cool. Unfortunately, they were usually crowded when I was free, and empty when I had to study and was dying to play! " Sunset Villiage Recreational Facility, located right behind Sunset Village, had an Olympic-sized swimming pool and many tennis courts, both of which -were used as regular practice and tournament areas for the Men ' s Water Polo team and Women ' s Tennis team at UCLA. The residential dorms offered a sufficient number of facilities for students ' studying, recreational and exercise needs. They existed to provide dorm residents with a positive environment as they continued their education at UCLA. fen 182 Concentrating on the cue ball, this student attempts to put spin or " English " on the ball.

Behind the front desks usually were the offices of the residential director, a person who works closely with all the RAs and ensures that everything is running smoothly. By Kevin Lee Positions Strengthen Community Feel for Residents The Resident Assistant (RA), Program Assistant (PA), and Student Health Advocate (SHA) student positions are essential to maintaining quality of life in the residential halls and deal intimately with the everyday lives of the on-campus residents. The RA acts as the regulator and counselor for the residents. The PA thinks up and executes academic and social activities important to floor spirit. The SHA is the " medicine person " of the building who possesses the materials and medicines necessary to heal an injury or suppress a sickness. The RA is typically the one who holds the largest responsibility in the dorms. He she must establish genuine relationships with every resident. Another responsibility includes dealing with students who violate community rules. Indeed, many noisy residents have been " written up " by an RA; the punishment usually involving community service or following an RA during a regular " round " on the floor. " Before you become an RA, you really gotta think about what YOU want to give, and especially about whether you have the time and resources to do so, " said David Lin, an RA in Saxon Suites. Though the responsibilities of maintaining a positive environment and counseling the residents are very important for the floor, resident directors still feel that the highest priority for any RA should be academics. " If an RA is letting his or her grades slip on account of the job, it wouldn ' t be reasonable for us to allow him or her to continue with the job, " commented Kathleen Blankenship, Resident Director of Saxon Suites. PAs organize social and academic group activities for a floor, including barbecues, bowling trips and ski trips, as well as special programs for alcohol and Sexual Awareness Week and cultural events like Black History Month. " Thinking up the programs is sometimes pretty challenging, " admitted Avanti Paranjype, a PA for Saxon Suites. " The reason I became a PA was that I wanted a more involved experience in the dorms and also wanted to help get other people involved. " SHAs are allowed to administer first aid, distribute over-thc ' Counter drugs and provide contraception to residents. They are the so ' Called, " bridge between the Arthur Ashe Medical Center and the dorms, " as Dyllan Siemann put it, a SHA in Saxon Suites. " I am pre ' med, and I wanted the experience of administering medication and how to handle people in need, " continued Siemann. " I wanted to get involved with the school, and I thought this was a great program for that. " The dorms just wouldn ' t be the same without the assistance of RAs, PAs and SHAs. Not only do the residents benefit from their work, but the RAs, PAs and SHAs themselves gain experience and satisfaction from helping their fellow students.

Students gathered at this take-out eatery to refill their empty stomachs and to socialize. Jackie Honda Lasagna, personal pan pizzas, hefty burritos... sound like a great restaurant for eating out? How about several restaurants? The UCLA Residential Dining Facilities were a consortium of sit ' down and take ' Out eating places that over the past year served residents living in the dorms and suites. UCLA residential dining consisted of three main dining halls: Richer Hall, Hedrick Hall and Covel Commons, and three take-out eateries: Crossroads Cafe, Puzzles, and Caruso ' s Deli. The different eating facilities were designed for different purposes: the main dining halls served the three basic meals of a day, Puzzles and Caruso ' s served evening meals for students on the run, and Crossroads was primarily for those who ate late lunches in the afternoon. " The quality of the food fluctuated enough so that people were satisfied with what they got, " commented Derek Leung, a second-year electrical engineering student. The residential dining facilities opened this school year with the addition of Caruso ' s, an Italian style take-out eatery specializing in lasagna and sandwiches. This was the third of such take ' Out eateries, the other two being Puzzles, and Crossroads. Over the years, Puzzles had been a popular night- time take-out eatery, with a menu consisting of burritos, soup, burgers, pizza and smoothies. Crossroads Cafe served breakfast and dinner, but its specialty was sandwiches and burgers for late-afternoon lunches. Residential dining was based on a theme called " destination-location " in which specific styles or cuisines could be found at certain halls. For example, if one wanted Italian food, he or she would go to Caruso ' s; for the afternoon munch, the place was Crossroads; for sushi, the place to go was Hedrick; and for some great stir- fry, it was Richer Dining Hall. The three main dining halls hosted a " special dinner " for each quarter, in which the hall was decorated according to a certain theme and the cooks prepared some extra-good food. Special Dinner was basically the " student ' s dinner " and it was up to the students (through each floor ' s Food and Environment representative) to indicate what they wanted for the theme and what ought to served on the menu. While talking about one of his more memorable special dinner experiences, Leung fondly recalled the " great steak they had at the Cinco de Mayo special dinner. " The UCLA residential dining facilities faithfully served the many students living on campus. Over the years, the facilities improved themselves by developing more locations and more menu items to provide for the needs of its residents. The dining services were definitely an integral part of the full experience of on-campus housing at UCLA. bi .

Although there was limited space in the dorm rooms, students found it easier to adapt if they found similar interests as their roommates. F Roommate Relationships By Erin Rattazzi or many, living with a complete stranger was an integral part of the college experience. In the middle of the summer before freshman year, a piece of paper arrived bearing the names of your roommates, the people who will eventually know the idiosyncrasies of your day-to-day lifestyle, and significantly impact the degree to which you enjoy that first year. The first phone call to their roommates was marked with anxiety and trepidation. First-year sociology student, Michelle Ornelus, was one of the lucky few who were paired well with a roommate. " I have two really nice roommates and we don ' t have any conflicts. " Resident advisors attempted to facilitate the ease of roommate relations with the creation of roommate contracts. These signed documents laid out the policies that each room has adopted, concerning overnight guests, alcohol and study habits. Adjusting to another ' s habits proved to be one of the more difficult aspects of roommate relations. Conflicts varied in severity, but common issues were noise, study time, and guests. The lack of personal space in the cramped housing caused problems too. " Our biggest problem was space because you are living on top of two other people. It ' s a prison in a space for two people, " said Adam Hunt, a second- year political science student. " If you ever wanted to watch a movie or something, it was really hard to find room. I had a hard time relating to one of my roommates because he was always on the computer. " Residential living created a sense of community, where many people become lifelong friends. Anagha Apte, a second-year political science student decided to live with a girl she knew from her freshman year for her next year in the dorms. " For their second year, most people room with floormates from the year before. I ' m glad my roommate Marie has the same taste in tacky wall decorations as I do. " Aura Baldomero, a senior ethnomusicology student stated, " There are four of us. Me and my roommates get along really well and we all trusted each other. " More frequent were ex-roommates -who share horror stories about each other. " My roommate my freshman year was a nightmare! " said Alexis Hall, a third-year English student. " One day I came back from class and all my stuff was out in the hallway.

Bringing their own machines enabled students to avoid the hassle of crowded computer labs. Jackie Honda " He cost of the lounges is tke same price as a double in a This year, On-Campus Housing had to deal with the inconveniences of housing shortages and construction noise. Housing utilized some methods to deal with the timeless problem of housing shortages, including converting doubles into triples, and even transforming -whole study lounges into six-person super-dorms. As for construction noise, Dykstra Hall over the years, had been in the unfortunate position of being situated right next to some major construction work involving the development of a new commons building as well as the new De Neve Plaza Residential Halls. Living in a study lounge had its okay moments, as well as its really awful moments. There was quite a bit of room , and in some cases, lots of windows for fresh air and a nice view. However, most lounges were located right next to the elevator, so lounge residents were frequently disturbed by the sound of students moving to and fro in that area. Students who ended up living in lounges were usually transfers because their housing applications were processed after freshmen applications. " The cost of the lounges was the same price as a double in a residential tower, " said Maryam Javani, a third ' year transfer student majoring in women ' s studies, and who began the year living in a lounge. " This is mostly because the lounge covered a lot of area, and the price was based on the amount of floor space the room took up. " Lounge residents had first priority to move in when space opened up in a regular room. Students who woke up to the sound of hammering and drilling most likely lived in Dykstra Hall, a ten-story tower situated next to extensive construction work. Dykstra residents not only had to put up with noise but had to spend some extra energy to walk around the partitioned area reserved for construction. Because of the inconveniences of construction, Dykstra residents were given a complementary micro-fridge by housing as a token of appreciation for their tolerance of such annoyances. When asked whether the noise from construction this year worsened compared to last, Vanessa Fong, a second-year microbiology student and Social Chair for Dykstra Hall replied, " Yeah, they ' re working on the podium, which is all metal and steel " . The " podium " that Vanessa referred to was a commons area like Covel Commons, and would have an auditorium and dining facility. Aside from their free micro-fridge, Dykstra Hall residents, as an extra bonus, were given highest priority for housing the following year. Shortage of space in the residence halls and the never-ending construction alongside Dykstra were two inconveniences that UCLA on-campus residents have learned to recognize and accept. One may claim that nothing will ever be perfect in the residential housing facilities, but on-campus housing residents were still able to make a fulfilling experience during their stay in the dorms. ii;: ;.;:. iiR !?; - - -.:- 190 Without a lounge, it is popular for students to hang out in the halls instead.

Dave Holmberg By Catherine Calleja Events and Activitiei by On-Campus Housing Being an on-campus resident not only held the benefits of living extremely close to campus and classes, but also the opportunity to attend and participate in a diverse number of events and activities around campus. Facilitated by the residential life staff and student leaders, programs throughout the hill were not only an option, but also a requirement. " As a PA [Program Assistant], it is my job to provide the residents with many programs relating to community development, leadership development, academic success and personal growth, " said Julie Burger, a second-year psychology student. " The programs I have done on community development include floor dinners, basketball games versus other floors, trips to 3rd Street Promenade, and trips to TV tapings. " Programmed events helped residents get to know each other and feel a part of their residential communities. Opportunities within the residential halls were found in leadership programs offered so residents could build their leadership skills and help the community. Leadership programs included participation in AIDS Walk Los Angeles and public speaking workshops. The academic programs some students have participated in included study skills workshops and making floor study lists which helped residents find people on their floor to study with. The goal of the academic programs was to provide residents with tools so they could be academically successful at UCLA. The personal growth programs that were provided for residents included volunteering in an AIDS clinic, field trips to the Getty Museum and to see " Les Miserables. " Burger added, " It is important for students to have opportunities to get involved in their community, meet other students, develop leadership skills and to have learning experiences both inside and outside of class. Program Assistants, Resident Advisors, and other student leaders help facilitate these opportunities for students. " Learning to get involved early through these programs established by on-campus housing allowed UCLA students to meet more residents and made the transition from living outside their own homes easier. llu:: MM 192 MOftiA . .-.- iynn Nishimura Signs around the dorms promote residents to get involved in different activities on campus.

Dave Holmberg Residential Activties 193 Delays in the Construction of De Neve Plaza By Catherine Calleja Due to the postponement of the completion date, the De Neve Plaza project is still in its construction phase. This residential complex has been scheduled to house approximately 1,500 students upon completion. MMy floss " The objective was to make a To the dismay of anxious UCLA students and staff, the turn of the century approached sooner than the completion of the $72 million housing project known as the De Neve Project. As construction began on October of 1997, the prospects of a new and " high ' tech " complex on the " hill " became a bright light in the eyes of residents and staff hoping for a grand expansion for the on-campus housing community. However, after two years of ant icipation, the project became a constant bother and eyesore for residents and employees around the " hill " instead of becoming the new haven for the UCLA community that it was meant to be. Because of construction tragedies, miscalculations and the forces of nature, completion of De Neve Plaza faced delays after delays. Although various explanations for the causes in the delay were offered, the outcome remained the same: an unfinished, but promising residential complex. While members of the residential staff were forced to reside in other complexes, incoming students and residents desiring to find housing in the De Neve complex were also disappointed, but not displaced. Although the option of living in De Neve Plaza was given as a possibility, students were not offered the facility in their final housing offer. Rather, students were assigned to other on ' Campus complexes with the promise that as soon as De Neve Plaza was completed, they would have the option of entering a selection process for housing in the buildin g. Because of the influx of residential students at the University, a large percentage of incoming students were assigned to triples in the existing residential facilities. The prospect of having less triples than desired during the I999 ' 2000 school year was overturned in light of the delays in construction. Hoping to house students in the De Neve residential complex, the buildings were to provide approximately 1,500 beds. Aside from the living quarters, the complex was to include a large dining facility, several meeting, study and recreation rooms and a lecture ' sized auditorium. With each new expected date of completion pushed back, the De Neve Project became an ongoing question in terms of a completed physical realization. This realization would facilitate a campus community in which Marc Fisher, the 1997 director for Campus Programs said, " the objective was to make a campus community. " As a residential, academic and social edifice meant to expand the UCLA community, De Neve Plaza would have been an oasis or a mini-stop for students after trudging up the dreaded hill along Bruin Walk. Only time will tell when the elaborate complex would be complete, but with an albeit slow, yet consistent effort, the future looks bright for future UCLA students. Housing . ' I IK; ; is 194 il Rf Located next to Dykstra Hall, this $72 million housing project will not only have rooms for 1 ,500 students, but also a dining hall and an auditorium. This complex was planned to become a part of the campus community. With bricks piling up outside of De Neve Plaza, construction workers continue to work on the building. The De Neve project has been expected to be finished by the next school year. Chris Bourlierl Because of the growing population, UCLA plans to increase the number of dormitory rooms by lowering the number of triple rooms on campus. Many were disappointed when UCLA announced that De Neve Plaza would not be completed by the 1999-2000 school year. De Neve Plaza Living in an apartment close by the campus, a student prepares a home-made dinner in her kitchen. Students were faced with issues such as learning how to cook, commuting and budgeting their finances when they moved from the dorms into the apartments. Jeremy Muso m By Kevin Lee Moving into Apartments Forces Students into the Kitchen When asked whether he missed dorm food, Andrew Yoon, a fourth-year business economics student and apartment dweller said nostalgically, " Yes. . . I do. " Many apartment dwellers missed having the nice perks of dorm life, which included pre-cooked food, on-call maintenance and a resident advisor to maintain a pleasant atmosphere for the residents. After their two years of living in the dorms, most UCLA students were forced to find housing in an off-campus apartment for their remaining years. Many of these apartments could be found in advertisements in the Daily Bruin, postings on campus billboards, or through assistance by UCLA housing services. Apartment living presented a world of challenges when compared to living at home or in the dorms. Students living in apartments picked up the responsibility of preparing their own food and paying for the rent and bills. As he talked about his first year of life in the apartments, Matthew Pih, second-year computer science student commented, " You think you ' re going to cook everyday and have food that tastes much better than what you had in the dining halls. But when it comes down to it, you ' re going to end up saying, ' Hmm, so what are we going to have tonight? Hot dogs again? All right! ' " Apartment-dwellers usually had to go to nearby supermarkets to do their shopping so they could prepare meals. A popular place to shop was the nearby Lucky ' s supermarket, or if the resident preferred a more homely environment, Breadsticks, which was just along Gayley Avenue. In talking about how he and his roommates divided up their shopping expenses, Andrew Yoon said, " Sometimes if one of us went out to buy an item, we would buy enough for everyone in the apartment. Then, we kept a list of expenses so we could keep track of how much each person owed the one who bought the stuff. " Many of the apartments used specifically by UCLA students were located in the area behind the dorms, as well as the neighborhood south of Wilshire Boulevard. Students also lived in apartments all along Santa Monica toward 3rd Street Promenade. Those who lived in apartments were usually provided with a free parking spot for their apartment, but many still had a hard time attaining a campus-parking permit if they lived within walking distance to school. Living in the apartments had its own benefits and inconveniences. Students in apartments had the advantage of true privacy, as well as a place to park their car. However, they also learned to be self- sufficient in taking care of food, maintenance and other duties intrinsic to living in the outside world. Housing 196 .

Lynn Nishimura irtment Life Risi I999 ' 20QO Apartment Rise By Matthew Heyn Several students check the apartment listings at the Community Housing Office. Due to the increased price in rent and the lack of availability in the dorms, many students had to try much harder to find a place to live. Jeremy Afuso " Of paramount importance was finding a roommate with li Rising cost and limited availability of space in the dorms meant that by their third year, most students here had to either move into the fraternity sorority housing or find themselves an apartment. Their apprehension in this was understandable. As terribly mundane and tasteless as on-campus dining was, it was always there at meal time no shopping, cooking, or thought required. Similarly, the dorm room may have been a tad cramped, but apartment life meant cleaning up after one ' s self, a rare trait that eludes male college students across the nation. And after ' all, as strict as the resident advisor was about noise and substance abuse, it really didn ' t compare to the ho rror stories about managers evicting tenants for throwing parities. Apartment living usually began with the search for a new roommate. Unlike in the dorms, people couldn ' t depend on being set up with a roommate. The roommate service offered by the Housing Administration helped some to find companions, but the typical way of getting roommates was through friendships and networking. Of paramount importance was finding a roommate with a compatible living style. Pairing a messy party animal with a neat study freak was a disaster waiting to happen. Laying out the duties and expectations was important for comfortable apartment living. Despite the best coordination, misunderstandings occurred: three futons could arrive on move in day, but no flatware. Those with significant others often developed a code for communicating when privacy was needed. Establishing a duty schedule for cleaning the apartment helped keep some apartments clean, but in other apartments it was just the source of a battle of who could ignore it more. Sinks overflowed with dishes, while flies buzzed around week old lasagna. And that was a good day at my apartment. Apartment life was not all bad, though. Some found it much preferable to dorm living. First, it was much less expensive. Despite recently rising costs to live in Westwood, two bedroom apartments in Westwood averaged $1446 and $1215 in West L.A., according to the UCLA Housing Office. That ' s $361- $303 per person on a four person occupancy. Some dorms, on the other hand could cost as much as $7552 for a year ($861.33 per month for nine months). Privacy was also a huge advantage of the apartments. For better or worse, students could keep to themselves more, and have guests without signing them in. Now if they could only do something about those dirty dishes. Housing Students living in the apartments discuss their expenses for the month and how much they will pay. Most apartments usually housed four roommates, which cut rent to about $300-$400 per person. Looking for an apartment? Students who live in the dorms are only guaranteed housing for two years. After their second year in the dorms, students looked at various resources, such as ads in the Daily Bruin, for apartments early in the year. These three roommates sit at the table and pay their apartment bills together. Typical prices for apartments located in Westwood started at $1 400 and apartments in West Los Angeles started at $1 200. Jeremy Afuso Apartment Expenses W Co-Ops offer a satisfying alternative to apartments. The duties of the Co-Ops involved making meals, cleaning, and contributing to a community feel. By Catherine Calleja Provide Alternative Form of Livinj Relying on the participation of residents to make housing a successful alternative to high-cost apartments, dormitories, fraternities and sororities, the University Cooperative Housing Association (UCHA) was established in 1935 to provide housing for those who might not be able to afford other alternatives while attending UCLA. In the past few years, the Co-Ops have expanded to accepting applicants from UCLA Extension, Santa Monica College, and other nearby educational institutions. Currently owning three buildings in the residential area of Westwood, Robinson Hall, Essene Hall and Hardman-Hansen Hall, the Co-Ops house 432 people altogether. The UCHA has provided reasonable-cost housing to students, staff and faculty of UCLA and other educational institutions for over fifty years. Located two blocks from campus, the Co-Ops are an independent, non-profit organization run primarily by those who live there. The Co-Ops owe its success to the residents. Co-Op residents in good standing are considered members of the UCHA organization. Members have the right to vote in elections, run for Co-Op office, and automatically stay each quarter, as the Co-Op contracts are offered on a quarterly basis, unlike the typical year-long plan of most housing institutions. Because the Co-Ops are run by its occupants, every resident is expected to carry out responsibilities to the building. Residents ' quarterly responsibilities include one to four bathroom cleanings, four quarter work hours, four to five hour work-shifts, one or two house meetings, and continued academic standing. It is stressed that all work-shifts are arranged so that they do not conflict with classes or outside employment. By fulfilling these responsibilities, residents got a furnished room, 19 meals per week, paid utilities, the ability to stay in their room during academic breaks, laundry facilities, study lounges, an exercise room, a TV room, a computer lab, game rooms, social activities, parties, and movie nights- all while paying a low rent. If living in a university-owned residential complex, a Westwood apartment or even commuting seem like the only alternatives you have to one ' s living situation, you are mistaken. The Co-Ops are nearby, and have had the aim to foster a community of cooperation, learning and friendship for over fifty years. Housing In the Co-Ops, a student happily helps in the kitchen by pushing a cart to the other end of the room. Students were required to do chores such as cooking dinner, in order to decrease their housing expenses. Ajmal Afimady AjmalAhmady The Co-Op building shines brightly in the afternoon sun.

Sororities often gave students a sense of togetherness, where many of the girls made lifelong friends. Courtesy of Laura Gundersheim " ...the older Jirls in my louse really helped me choose to tie a Contrary to popular belief, the Greek system isn ' t all wild frat parties with crazed college students gyrating to loud bump and grind music in an " Animal House " scenario. The Greek system is also a network of motivated students who support each other in their quest for academic excellence. The system provides valuable resources to members to aid with the rigorous studies at UCLA. Older members mentor younger students with advice on careers, courses, professors and majors. Mentors make the first major obstacle for most freshmen, choosing a major, an easy and enjoyable experience. " I had a hard time trying to decide my major and discussing different options with the older girls in my house really helped me choose to be a double major, " said Erin Eriksson, a fourth ' year political science and history student and president of Delta Gamma sorority. Alumni are another asset when looking for help beyond the classroom. Networking through the alumni provides Greeks with career-advancing internships, as well as invaluable career advice. And alumni can be the key to success in that dreaded first job search after graduation. They can make an intimidating and dreadful experience a positive career move with a little help from the top of the corporate ladder. Study nights sponsored by sorority and fraternity houses are held on a regular basis. In turn, this promotes study groups among members and a positive environment for achievement. Study nights are especially welcome during finals week when students need extra support to stay focused and pull that all-nighter. The Greek system positively reinforces the importance of academic excellence through scholarships and awards given by the houses to members with outstanding academic records. There is a Greek honor society, Order of Omega, open only to Greeks in recognition of their hard work. " Professor dinners " are yet another benefit of being part of the Greek system. They are held by many houses to promote positive professor-student relations, an all-too-rare opportunity given UCLA ' s massive enrollment. Professors attend dinner at the house and receive the opportunity not only to get to know the students outside of the classroom, but to see the Greek system up close as well. " This is a great chance to learn more about your professors and ask them questions about their careers or education " says fourth-year political science student and Delta Gamma member, Chrissy Cheski. Greeks as a whole are hardworking students determined to make the most of their time at UCLA. With the help of the system, they can succeed in scholastics and make lifelong friends in the process. - ' : " Housing This Greek Bruin is packed and ready to go for Sigma Nu ' s Dad ' s Day event. Joining a fraternity or a sorority was a wonderful way to build communities. A student sits by a sign on Bruin Walk that advertises the founder ' s day of Delta Sigma Omega.

Courtesy of Mary Ragsdale Greek Life 203 Located on Landfair Avenue, the Triangle fraternity is comprised of engineering and science students from UCLA. This fraternity housed approximately 22 members. By Catherine Calleja Breaking the Mold of Fraternity and Sorority Life When you thought of the Greek system and its fraternities and sororities, did you always imagine them as a non- distinct group of individuals? Did they strike you as all being the same, but possessing no real distinction among the diverse UCLA population? If so, then you are likely mistaken. Consistent claims that those in the Greek system are like everyone else and that they are not merely carbon copies of each other, but rather individuals, is a valid and non-discriminatory remark. Aside from the more " popular " and " talked ' about " fraternities and sororities, there is another fraction of the Greek system within UCLA that is usually overlooked. These Greeks are those that have a common bond besides the union of brother and brother, sister and sister. These greeks, such as Alpha Phi Omega, Alpha Gamma Omega, Phi Beta Sigma, Alpha Kappa Delta and so on, are all fraternities and sororities that uphold a strong theme and core that their members have in common. The fraternity Alpha Phi Omega for example is known as the community service fraternity, that not only has male, but also female members. Members of non-traditional Greek fraternities found that their common interests and goals within their fraternities helped the group as a whole in various aspects of their lives as students and later on as career-oriented individuals. The community service fraternity focused on numerous facets of service for individuals, the group, the University and the community as a whole. The Christian fraternity, Alpha Gamma Omega, proposed that the fraternity ' s aim be to promote Christian fellowship, to present Christian ideals, to uphold the traditions and ideals of the university, and to deepen the spiritual lives of the members. At UCLA, being Greek no longer exemplifies a " cookie ' CUtter " image. From the traditional Greek houses like Sigma Chi and Chi Omega, to the non- traditional ones that focus on sociology undergraduates like Alpha Kappa Delta, being Greek was something of which to be proud.

Not only did this event raise money, but it also was an opportunity to recruit members within the community. Lynn Nisnimura Greek Life UCLA At Sports Of: I999- 2000 has been a very emotional year for UCLA sports. The Bruins have had a fair share of ups and downs throughout the season. Yet despite all these adversaries, there is one thing that the Bruins have been very consistent with perseverance. Win or lose, the Bruins never surrender. This attitude was well-articulated by football coach Bob Toledo when he said at the end of the season: " We will be back! " The same attitude was demonstrated by Steve Lavin ' s team when they beat then i Stanford at Stanford after going through a tumultuous basketball season. Then we have the Men ' s Water Polo clinching the national title, Men ' s Soccer remaining valiant in grabbing the second place; and Women ' s Basketball, Women ' s Gymnastics and Men ' s and Women ' s Volleyball showing the world what Bruins are made of.

In only their second regular season game, the Bruins (then ranked 1 6th) faced top-ranked Florida in the USC tournament at the Coliseum. The Bruins fell behind 3 ' 0 before freshman Tracey Winzen scored UCLA ' s only goal of the afternoon. UCLA recovered and went on a seven game winning streak against teams such as Cal Poly San Louis Obispo, and UC Irvine. In league, they scorched Arizona and Arizona State each by five point margins. However, they faced much tougher opposition against the tenth-rated Stanford Cardinals. In that game, both teams fought through a scoreless first half where only seven shots were taken. Then, the Bruin defense collapsed, allowing six goals in the second half five of them by the 75th minute. According to Little, " I come back and looked at the Scoreboard...! just couldn ' t believe it. " Despite being locked out of Pac ' IO Championships, the Bruins redeemed themselves in their rivalry match-up against eighth-ranked USC.

The team won its seventh consecutive Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Pacific Division title and competed in the 1999 NCAA Men ' s College Cup. However, the Bruins ' hopes of winning the National Title was stopped short with a disconcerting defeat in the semifinal game against Indiana.

" In my four years on the team, I have many memories, but the best are of my teammates, " said Sasha, reflecting on his career on the soccer team. " I think that is what makes the team unique, " Sasha continued. " Everyone on the team is really close, and they all love to hang out together.

The score was 2 ' 0 Indiana and the 2 Bruins made their way back when they finally scored their first goal, then a made an electrifying second goal to tie up the game. But in the end, it was Indiana who took the win with a goal in the fourth overtime quarter. The loss was devastating, but that doesn ' t take away the num erous number of feats and accomplishments the Bruins made over their season. Their first two playoff games were against University of San Diego Toreros and Saint Louis Billikens, whom the Bruins successfully beat, 4-1 with USD and 2 ' 0 with the Billikens. The Bruins then went to take on the Virginia Cavaliers, a close rival ever since UCLA beat them in the 1997 National Championships. Proving their dominance once again, UCLA won against the Cavaliers, 2 ' 0. The match ' Up with the Indiana Hoosiers in the semifinal was considered one of the best college soccer match-ups ever. The two top college soccer teams, UCLA and Indiana, had three national championships and ten Final Four appearances and four national championships and 12 Final Four appearances, respectively. McKinley Tennyson, Jr., a junior forward and native of Indiana, could not wait to take on his hometown. Yet, in the end, after a courageous display of endurance and willpower by both teams in four overtime quarters, Indiana happened to find an open hole and made the game- winning shot. Nonetheless, the 1 999 UCLA Men ' s Soccer team proved without a doubt their position as a National Championship ' Worthy team in college soccer. " It was difficult that we didn ' t win the championship, but it showed our drive and determination, " said key player, Sasha Victorine. " Even though we didn ' t -win, it showed the team ' s heart to come back from two goals down. That, I believe, was the most important thing of the year.

The women ' s team qualified for their second consecutive NCAA Cross-Country Championships, in which they placed 30th, lead by sophomore Kate Vermeulen, who placed 67th as an individual in team scoring and 90th as an individual overall. The Men ' s CrosS ' Country team was unable to perform up to speed during the season due to the flu and numerous injuries. The two high points of the season was Minnesota, in which they placed 1 2th and Districts. However, the team was unable to place high enough in the Pac-IO Championships to qualify for the NCAA Championships. As senior Matt Pitts put it, " Almost everybody got sick, injured, or was just plain burnt out. " In addition, the training for the Men ' s team may have been too tough and fast ' paced for the runners to handle. " I think you always need training to improve and do well, " said Paul Muite, a sophomore runner, " but some of the stuff we did, like intense morning work ' Outs, simply left us too tired.

Yet, on February 19, the Bruins lost 99-88 to Arizona, their sixth of seven games, and hopes for a playoff game were dim. The rough season started with a demoralizing loss in their first competitive match against Gozaga. In that game the Bruins shot 26 percent and had 16 turnovers. However, the Bruins saved face by beating the Purdue Boilermakers 55-53. In that game, Jason Kapono dribbled the length of the floor and scored a lay-up with I . I seconds remaining to give the Bruins the winning margin of the game. Pac-IO play began with a heart-breaking, controversial loss to Washington lying on t C territory, the Bruins were then upset by cross- wn rivals USC (79-91). This was the first time UCLA has lost to USC since Head Coach Steve Lavin ' s leadership. Disheartening losses to Arizona and Stanford followed. Against Arizona, the Bruins went on 7-0 scoring slumps due to turnovers. In the home game against the Stanford Cardinal, freshman Jason Kapono scored 21 points to little effect as the Cardinal trampled the Bruins by dominating in rebounds (37-23) and shooting 55%. The low point of the season came after an emotionally draining loss to the California Bears (70-73). With their backs against the wall, Lavin and Ins squad fought back in true Bruin fashion. In the home stretch after they had lost their sixth of seven, they scored convincing victories against Oregon and Oregon State. The next week the Bruins traveled to Berkeley for a rematch. In an impressive effort, Dan Gadzurick came off the bench late in the first half, contributing 8 points of the 1 7-0 scoring run. The three game win streak put the Bruins on a roll, but UCLA needed to prove themselves against tough competitors to get into the tournament. At the dreaded Maples Center, Stanford ' s home court, things looked bleak at the outset as the Cardinal scored 12 points to start the game and Bruins were reminded of the thirteen-game winning streak the Cardinal had amassed. Yet, somehow, the Bruins overcame the emotional drain. Sophomore Bruin Billy Knight hit key three-pointers that kept the team in the game. Playing their most intense basketball of the season, the Bruins kept in the game and tied it at the end of regulation. Despite losing star players Jerome Moiso and Dan Gadzurick to foul trouble, the Bruins kept the game close in overtime. In the emotional highlight of the game, JaRon Rush, playing his first game since a nine-game suspension, scored the winning shot at the buzzer to complete the improbable upset.

Far and away, he had the best recruiting class in the nation with the talent originating throughout the nation and even Holland. Yet amongst these young stars, there was a lack of veteran leadership. The team ' s two sophomore starters, Earl Watson and Baron Davis, would have to step up and show the rest all they had learned in their tumultuous first year. Moreover, Lavin would have to build his talented team into a mature, cohesive group after they were so used to being one-man shows. Unconvincing victories in exhibition and losses in the Puerto Rico tournament to talented Maryland and Kentucky showed the teams immaturity and the inability to gel. Lavin had a difficult time keeping the Bruins to maintain pressure throughout the game. Often the Bruins would build a big lead in the first half only to have the opposition come back late in the game. PaC ' IO play was especially contentious this year. Arizona, Stanford, and UCLA were all ranked in top 1 spots. Moreover, the rest of the league had respectable programs in their own right. Every game was a struggle for the ?lay opened at home against league rival Arizona. UCLA came out 3 percent in taking a 40 ' 24 lead that the Bruins survived getting outscored by nine points in the second half. Bruins Dan Gadzuric and Earl Watson gave outstanding defensive performances. Moreover, Arizona didn ' t have an answer for Moiso, the 6 ' foot ' IO 1 2 freshman whose insidb-outside shooting touch left the Wildcats scrambling on defense. The Bruin surge continued in playoff action. In the second round they upset an overpowered Maryland team with high Hying theatrics and deadly three-point accuracy to win by 35 points. Perhaps confidence was a little too high as a slow, methodical Iowa State cut the wings of the Bruins. After looking so good in the previous game, the Bruins were trampled by over 20 oints.

An especially exhilarating moment for the team was during the competition against Stanford in which the Bruins set a new school record for the uneven bars (49.7) and floor (49.625). " It was an unforgettable feeling, " remembered Velasco. The team had an abundance of talent and leadership in senior co-captains Heidi Moneymaker and Lena Degteva.

Launching into seasonal play, the Bruins were well-respected despite having only one senior. According to Collegiate Baseball, they had the best recruiting class in the nation from the commitments of Justin Wade, Shane Miranda and Mike Kunes. They were ranked fourth and were determined to 35 climb to number one. Given the strength of the Bruin line-up, it was little wonder when, in their first match-up of the season, they swept the Hawaii Waves in grand fashion. The powerful bats of junior Chase Utlcy, senior Aldo Pinto, and junior Garret Atkins helped the Bruins score 34 runs during those three games ng pitchers Mike Kunes, junior Jon Brandt, and Josh Karp held the hapless waves to three runs in each game. From auspicious beginnings they hit a mid-season slide. Errors and walks were the primary cause of a 5-4 loss to Loyola Marymount. The upset was just the beginning as the Bruins lost seven of their next eight including two losses to USC. The losses to USC put the Bruins below .500. Faced with this decline the Bruins surged in the late season. Their games against Kejo University of Japan and Harvard allowed them to regroup and refine their skills for their rematch against USC in April. Indeed April and May would be redemption months for the Bruins, as they faced many of the tough teams that contributed to their early-season slump. Through it all, the Baseball team kept their eyes on the prize in Omaha, Nebraska. Gary Adams had set the goal at the championship, and that is where the team pushed toward.

No other school has so dominated the NCAA, and only UCLA ' s volleyball team has claimed more titles. This year, the Bruins hoped to add their names to the storied legacy by showing the prowess that gave them a number five pre-season ranking. Once again, the PaC ' IO Conference meets offered the most challenge for the Bruins outside of the NCAA championships. Conference rival Stanford was the returning national champion. Across town, USC was ranked 1 5th, Arizona State was ranked 1 7th, and Washington pinked 1 8th. Despite the challenging schedule, the Bruins aimed high: hoping to be a top ' 8 seed for the newly, expanded NCAA tournament format.

They were led by third ' year head coach Stella Sampras and senior team captain Brandi Freundenberg. Returning healthy from their multiple injuries last year, the Bruins began the season ranked eighth. This year included five newcomers, including Sara Walker who never lost a high ' School match and was ranked 66th in the ITA at the start of the season.

Undefeated, the team then went to Pepperdine where they avenged a heartbreak loss from last season by going [ in singles, preempting any doubles match efforts. Perhaps the Bruins gained too much confidence from their convincing defeat of the previously unbeaten Waves, because the next week they faced a tough Trojan squad that upset them (6 ' 3). In that match, USC ' s No!| (Roubles team, ranked No. 30 in the nation, surprised the No. 12 doubles team in the country UCLA ' s duo of juniors Amanda Basica and Annica Cooper. This win clinched the victory over the Bruins on USC ' s turf. The early losses did not daunt the Bruins long. They traveled to Texas the next weekend and made an impressive showing against a No. 6 ranked Texas. Moreover, the team gained cohesiveness and strength as the season progressed. Anica Cooper and Amanda Basica continued to post impressive wins that were augmented by the success of newcomers to the squad. Next year looks even brighter for the Bruins, with only one player not returning.

The Bruins did well in the opening Fall Preview tournament in Oregon in vhich they placed fifth. Amanda Moltke-Leth and Laura Moffat, the two top players on the women ' s team went head-to-head for the indiv idiAl title in which Moffat won with a birdie and took home her first collegiate o tournament.

Under the leadership of co-head coach Adam Krikorian, the team worked hard to get back its winning status this season. At the start of the season, Coach Krikorian placed emphasis on getting " back to that winning attitude and championship feel. " This was evident with the plethora of talented and devoted athletes. j : V Catharine von Schwarz, the returning U.S. National Team player, an All American senior and Bruin team captain, brought experience and knowledgi to the squad. Also guiding the younger players were seniors Erin Golaboski, Serela Hay, and Carly Herrera. Golaboski, a two-time Ail-American, returned to the field after being the starting goalkeeper last year. According to her coach, " Erin probably has one of the best outside shots in file nation. " The other key seniors Kay and Herrera displayed their impressive leadership abilities in their positions as playmaker and set defensive player, respectively. Other players also brought their strength, speed, and size to the game. Junior Kristin Guerin, a specialist in counterattack goals, further demonstrated her experience in the game with her offensive pursuits. Sophomores Elaine Zivich and Jenny Lamb added crucial points to the Scoreboard. Zivich was a returning first-team All-American and All-MPSF selection who was a top scorer. Lamb, an honorable mention All-American selection, used her speed to create scoring opportunities on the fast break and counterattack. Kelly Heuchan, a sophomore transfer, brought diversity with her v- -ii rounded playing ability. She proved her strength at the two-meter offense and defense positions. Lastly, the skilled freshmen players, Jessica Lopez, Ashley Stachowski, Devon Mclntyre, Maureen Flanagan and Mari Joyce comprised " one of the best recruiting classes in team history, " Krikorian said. This diverse squad of senior leaders, experienced returning pl|fl and skilled freshmen came together to achieve Coach Krikorian ' w als ' to improve and get [even] better as a team.

Graduating from UCLA means more than just getting a piece of paper stating that you have completed a four-year program from a university. Graduating from UCLA means being a part of a longstanding tradition of excellence that is an essential part of the Bruin experience. As our seniors leave, they join the ranks of our Bruin luminaries in the like of Francis Ford Coppola, Ralph Bunche, Carol Burnett, Karim Abdul-Jabbar (formerly Lew Alcindor), Tim Robbins and more. We wish them all the best in the future. Congratulations! 1 ' lass Panteha Abdollahi History Psychology Brandon G. Abraham English Jennifer M. Abeleda Mathematics Applied Science Sherwin F.

D. Eghbalieh in his life reflects a marriage of polar opposites, with a degree in World Arts and Cultures and a minor in Gerontology. Eghbalieh, a 3.9 honors student believes that his study of arts and science has given him a well ' rounded grasp of life and the social dynamics that encompass it. His recently completed honors thesis on schizophrenia research will soon be published in the American Journal of Psychiatry. He is also currently involved on a senior project on Klezmer music, which further accents his diverse range of interests by teaching him about other cultural and religious codes. He has been extremely active in all aspects of UCLA extracurricular opportunities. Some of these include: Community Event Coordinator for the Phi Sigma Biological Honor Society, Tenor in the UCLA Gospel Choir, Community Service Chair for the Golden Key National Honor Society, President and Founder of the Federation Club, President and Founder of the Gerontology Club, and an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant. He has been actively involved in community service having worked with the Boys Girls Club in Venice, the Saint Joseph ' s Homeless Shelter, UCLA Medical Center, and as a volunteer at the American Cancer Society and Century City Hospital. However, it was his work as director, supervisor, and founder of the Federation Tutoring Program of which he is the most proud. The Federation Tutoring is a nonprofit community program that provides tutoring for disadvantaged city students in grades I ' 12. " What satisfies me the most is not only the ability to help the students, but also how the tutoring process touches the lives of all those involved, " Eghbalieh said. " Most of the tutors have never really worked on a volunteer basis before. They are generally surprised at how much personal satisfaction they gain from their participation. " Eghbalieh credits UCLA with teaching him the skills to succeed and the ability to focus on challenges. To other UCLA students, he stresses the importance of staying focused on the human elements of life and embracing the leadership roles offered. He further notes, " The great friendships and relationships you have all established here at UCLA are at the heart of the learning and growth we have experienced during our time here. I would urge all of you to continue to center your lives and careers on such human relationships-old ones and new ones alike.

Hernandez Biology cd u Glass of 2000 317 dj Kesle T Graduating with college honors, a 3.963 GPA in both political science and sociology, and garnering ten A+ grades under her belt seem to be reason enough to find Cassidy Michelle Kesler an outstanding senior. Kesler however, proved not only to be an intellectual, but also a caring and involved UCLA student. Growing up in Utah as the middle daughter in a family of five children, Kesler ' s parents have always inspired in her the notion that " you can be and do anything you want if you work hard. " With this in mind, Kesler set off to UCLA leaning toward public interest law involving children. She is planning to continue her studies in law school and was accepted to every school she had applied. In the fall of 2000, Kesler took the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. with the Center on American Politics and Public Policy (CAPP) program. At Washington, she interned at the Justice Policy Institute which is a program of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. Kesler found that the Sociology Immersion Quarter Program in Spring of 1999 was the most academically challenging experience she has had so far. In the program, she participated in three intensive class seminars, in addition to spending ten hours a week volunteering in an elementary school classroom and completing an original field research paper. Not only did Kesler do sociology research, but she also worked as a research assistant in the political science department. At UCLA, Kesler was a participant and member of the Community Service Commission, UCLA Pre-Law Society and the Golden Key National Honor Society. She maintained an involvement in UCLA Bruin Partners, serving as a mentor to a fifth grader and director to Bruin Partners a year later. Kesler says that " serving is the least I can do because I have been so lucky to have so much love and support. " Kesler continued serving through her sorority, Lambda Delta Sigma, a sorority affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as a Pledge Educator and later, the sorority ' s president. Kesler has won numerous awards and competitions in her ears at UCLA. She was a finalist in UCLA ' s Annual won first Martin Lutlier , Jr. Oratorical Contest, latic-n rize in th in the Best Undergrac ve its, jto to rely achieve Patricia Hernandez Psychology Matthew C.

But Susi Shapiro exhibits a life that extends far beyond academic excellence at UCLA. She is also a mother of three, with her eldest son graduating this year from CSU Northridgc. Therefore, Shapiro feels that her most notable achievement during her time at UCLA was, " the ability to try and balance my schoolwork and community involvement with being a wife, mother and daughter. " Even after having worked her way up to Western Regional Area Manager for AT T, Shapiro still had the lingering feeling that she should have gone to college. After deliberating the idea by herself and with her family, Shapiro finally decided to quit her job and enroll in Santa Monica College. " I was just totally clueless about the college process and everything was new to me- from blue books and scantrons to raising my hand before 1 talking, " fondly remembered Shapiro. After two Hfers at Santa Sh Monica college under the IGETC (intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum) program, Shapiro transferred to UCLA. A large reason behind Shapiro ' s choice lied in a childhood memory. " My fourth grade teacher once took me and another student to UCLA ' s Powell Library. When I was there, I was absolutely awe-struck by the beautifully ' tiled floors and painted ceiling. From then on, I always knew Ewanted to become a Bruin. " Now, as Shapiro plans to continue her education at the USC School of Gerontology, she is working toward her ultimate goal of advocating for the rights for the elderly. Upon entering UCLA, " Being middle ' aged on such a youthful campus made me feel very out of place, " recounts apiro. So Shapiro decided to form Alpha Gamma Epsilon, -ed " soro ' frat " for the " non ' traditional aged college student. " AGE was a place where these " older-than ' usual " college students could meet and interact to ease the transition o linto college. Most of their meetings pertained to how one can anage a family and still keep up with his or her academics. If a member was having a family ' related crisis and at the same time had a terni ' paper due the next day, he or she could ask the other members for advice on how to get through with the situation, " commented Shapiro about AGE. Susi Shapiro has done countless items of community service, among which include: working as a liaison for the Los Angeles Unified School District and UniCamp Outreach Recruitment, lunteering with the Youth Motivation Task Force to help inner-city kids, acting as the Community College Transfer Outreach Director for Alumni Scholars Club and being a Girl Scout Troop co ' leader. She is the recipient of the 1999 Wasserman Grant and UCLA Foundation Achievement Awards as well as the distinguished Bruin Award 2000. In her spare time, Shapiro and her husband enjoy traveling and " exploring people, cultures and lands different than ours. " When inking over all she has done during her college experience i rtyhel icves that, " The most important nee! at UCLA is that if you are willing to reach out, there always someone there who will help you.

Renchel] John Andres, known as R.J., has always dreamed of being a doctor, and this dream will soon become a reality as he enters the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine in the fall of 2000. " I consider this acceptance to be my greatest achievement because of all the hard work and dedication I put forth to achieve this dream. " Andres ' ability to succeed was seen when he and his mother emigrated to the United States after his father enlisted in the U.S. Army. After many moves, he and his parents spent 1 1 years in Germany. But Andres knew that he must attend college in the U.S. in order to get accepted into a good medical school. Participating in Filipinos for Community Health and acting as a Student Health Advocate, Andres has been able to advise people on how to maintain good health. Through Project Working for Immigrant Literacy Development, he has been able to teach immigrant children to speak, rejid and write better English. He has been involved in Mortar Board community events, which has shown him that sacrificing a little bit of his time will go a long way toward making others aware of the importance in giving back to the community. Andres is as equally successful in his studies as he is in his community service work. He has completed all the necessary coursework to be awarded College Honors at graduation, which places him within a very elect group of students. He has participated in the Student Research Program in his quest for medical research, and has already received Departmental Honors in the Physiological Science Department for his project of computer videos that demonstrate certain elastic properties of the muscle. He truly is a researcher, scientist, teacher and the ideal student all rolled into one! Clearly Renchell John Andres has demonstrated his successful acclimation to the California way of life. There seems to be nothing that Andres cannot do! Why, he was even a contestant on " The Price is Right " and was lucky enough to hear host Bob Barker say, " Renchell John Andres, come on down! " Now that ' s a true sign of adapting to California life! Written by Cjina Turcketta SeaieroftheYear m c: ' , V-- Gina Marie Turcketta Art History Douglas F.

Robinson English GHM] uitttj m - - 1 jnan oomoano ' " ; Ited l inu. over all the classes he has taken at UCLA, Brian Somoano realized that he cannot remember much of the detailed material that he had once worked so hard to learn for tests and papers. He feels that one ' s dedication to schoolwork is never a wasted effort. Each successive year, Somoano found that he was able to spend O j fewer hours on his coursework and still maintain a stellar | GPA, yet at the same time participate in me curricular activities. " It was because of my decision to do the things that interested me the most and to walk my own path (instead of somebody else ' s) that I was able to come across to the medical school intervi with unique likes, dislikes, passions, and f The most significant lesson Somoano 1 college is understanding the factors that distinguish himself as an individual. His work on the E Latino AIDS) project, a joint effort between Chicanes Latinos for Community Medicir e (CCM) and the Black Pre-Hcalth Organization (BPHO) to bring education and awareness of AIDS to the community, has helped him to grow as a leader. Now co-director for the project, Somoano organizes visits to inner-city schools where he leads discussions on the subject, while emphasizing the importance of continuing one ' s education by going to college. Second, Somoano considers his family to be one of, if not the most important influence on his life. " My family, not a textbook, holds the most important place in my heart, " said Somoano earnestly. A third aspect of his life is his involvement with LASA (Latin American Student Association) and participation in their Salsa Dancing troop, which does performances all around the L.A. community. " For me, dancing is a passion I cannot simply forget exists, " stated Somoano. Some other activities Somoano has been involved with is his work with the Golden Key National Honors Society, where he is Director of Academic Events, as well as his participation in the CCM Mentorship program, in which he mentored an entering a pre-medical freshman. " Mr. Somoano is one of the most pleasant persons I have ever met, " contends Professor of Biology, Donald G. Buth. " He does not fit the stereotype of the aggressive pre-med but is rather relaxed about it and makes it look easy and fun. " If there was one message that Brian would want to tell all pre-meds at UCLA, it would be to " not let yourself sacrifice the things you love just for your classes... I just want my fellow UCLA students to remember to remain open-minded about the different resources and clubs on campus so that they may ultimately find the things that truly make them happy. " Written by Kevin Lee Sei Aaron Hand Balancing a job, three major organizations, research seminars, and community service with a degree in chemical engineering in four years, Aaron Hand breaks the mold of a typical engineering student. How does he get through this while staying on the dean ' s honors list? According to Hand, " I ' ve learned you can survive sleep deprivation... There is no pressure without flow. If I don ' t have pressure, I wouldn ' t get through this. " Like most engineering students, Hand spends long hours working with groups on lab projects. Over a two week period, the group can put together a 60 ' 80 page report. As a result he spends much time with his fellow engineers. Beyond the classroom he attends weekly seminars on the research in chemical engineering. He also is around for proof-reading thesis papers for the foreign graduate students. Realizing the value of the many opportunities UCLA has to offer outside the classroom, Hand has joined many social groups. Since his first year, he has been a member of the Alumni Scholars Club, where he participated in the " I ' m Going to College " program. He was a member of Tau Beta Pi and an Academic Advancement Program (AAP) tutor, helping students in both of these programs. Most significantly, he was highly involved in the on ' campus housing administration. He worked his way up from being a Resident Technology Supervisor, to a Resident Assistant, to being Resident Technology Supervisor. For Hand, being involved is part of the UCLA experience. According to Hand, " UCLA is what you make of it; it ' s easy to get lost in the crowd if you don ' t make an effort. The wealth of resources and people on the campus make UCLA great; taking advantage of them is up to each individual student.

Trust in your deeply hidden feelings, because they show the person that you are. Take hold of each opportunity, and make the most of it. Know the person that you are, the needs that your life contains. Search deeply to capture the essence of life. Find your limitations and build upon them. Create within yourself a person who is strong and capable of withstanding pain. Know that life will offer some disappointments, but remember through those situations, you become a stronger, more stable person. Don ' t overlook obstacles, but work through them. Remember that each road you choose will offer some difficulty. If life were meant to be easy, there would be no challenges and no rainbows.
