The four original buildings that make up the Royce Quad still stand today and continue to facilitate students in their learning and progression. Students who crossed the quad every day were reminded of UCLA ' s pledge to honor and encourage its students and offer them every opportunity available.

OPENING 5, m •r ( A - ' .f I I 6 OPENING Beyond the buildings and the facilities available, beyond even the classes and the homework, there was something about UCLA that has made four-year students, lifelong Bruins since 1914. There was a spirit, an understanding that instilled a pride in the school that made its students so enthusiastic. Student activism on campus targeted controversial political issues as well as interesting cultural and social ideas. Students stood up for what they believed in and tooic an active role in the world around them.

Balancing between the many demands required of the UCLA student and the additional responsihilties of jobs and extracurricular activities, Bruins still managed to find time to enjoy their college experiences. Whether it was hanging out on Bruin Walk, screaming at the Beat SC rally, or lust relaxing on campus, UCLA students had a clear understanding of what it meant to be a Bruin. Students carried with them the pride of knowing that they were a part of such an excellent institution, it was their diverse talents and concerns that were responsible for the individuality that was such a part of UCLA and its student body.

Following in this tradition, students ert ' capti ated b ' mo ie premieres, sports events, political discussions and cultural shows. Performances and social events sponsored by student organizations were also well attended as students continued to support their fellow Bruins in celebrations of their cultural and ethnic identities. Clearly the social focus of UCLA, events both on and off campus demonstrated an important representation of the student body and its interests and concerns. Traditional events such as Spring Sing and the annual UCLA job fair continued to draw in record numbers in attendance. Once again they proved that UCLA students were not onlv academically focused but also active and in ' olved in organizations and events that maintained the well-rounded and diverse tradition that has always defined the UCLA student body. In addition to tlie many events sponsored by various UCLA administrative groups, student organizations also held many different activities.

More than ten UCLA athletes competed on various Olympic teams as representatives for the United States. Back at home. Bruins who watched the events from their living rooms, supported these exceptional athletes and stayed updated on the many athletic competitions throughout the Games. Always supportive of any sporting events, Bniins showed up by the thousands to support their athletes playing on the home field. In the fall, fans drove to Pasadena almost ever) ' weekend to cheer on the Bruin football team at the Rose Bowl. Athletic support did not end there. Throughout the year, students attended basketball games, tennis games, soccer games and cheered enthusiastically regardless of the outcome. Events on campus and around the world captivated the attention of involved Bruins. Sports, politics, social issues and community welfare kept students as active as ever.

Enthusiastic tans irom both schools geared up for the game, donning school colors while screaming support as their pla ers battled it out on the held. The livalry between these schools has been a subject of controversy since it first began. The eight straight football victories by UCLA, followed by a disheartening defeat in 1999, only served to further intensify the battle of v ills. The 2000 game promised to be an exciting one as both teams prepared for a fight to the finish. Attendance at the Rose Bowl illustrated the support sho l bv each school as some 83,000 people attended to sing their fight songs and veil across the stadium. After a week ' s worth of pranks and several exciting rallies. Bruins and Trojans were prepared to do battle on the field as well as in the stands. And so the game began.

Their endiusiasm, however, was a little premature, as the Trojans managed to rouse their team and coiue back. Fans screamed louder and the players fought harder as each team sensed the taste of victory. As the points on the scoreboard climbed, so did the hopes of the students and supporters. As soon as one team scored, the other came back. Although UCLA maintained a steady lead throughout most of the game, USC showed no signs of defeat and tought hard to close the gap between their scores. The fourth quaiter began with the scores tied. Predictions of overtime ran like wildfire through the stands as the game came down to the last hvents ' seconds. And then, it happened. In final fourteen seconds. USC gained control and won the game with a miraculous field goal. Bruins watched in horrified disbelief as their dreams of revenge died. Expressions slowly changed from excited anticipation to the shock of a high-stakes loss. The game for Bruins ended in utter disappointment. However, there was a light at the end of the timnel, for in the hearts of every UCLA student and alunmi was the kniowledge that, in the end, revenge will be Bruin.

All around campus, our Bruin spirits soared as we bashed USC in eveiy way possible. With only a week left before our impending football game, the campus came alive with acti ities that stirred our pride and ignited our hatred for those cross-town private school kids. For decades, Beat ' SC Week has remained unchanged. It has simply been a litde watered down since the days when UCLA students used to paint Tommy Trojan a Bruin blue and when Brains used to clutter the USC campus with massive amounts of Trojan condoms. Yet ■ ' Re enge was sdll Bruin " in the year 2000, as Beat ' SC Week united UCLA in USC hatred once again. After months of preparation, the Student Alumni Association ' s (SAA) campus spirit committee put on a week ' s worth of both seniceable and fiercely vengeful acti aties. On Monday, November 13, a crowd gathered around a freshly donated car in Bruin Plaza while listening to the tunes of our local KROQ station playing on stage. This car was the victim of our Bioiin pride, as we participated in our annual " Car Smash. " The car was painted a despised red with anti-USC messages spraved relentlessly ' on it.

Joining the UCLA Band, Spirit Squad, football players and coaches, we watched Tommy Trojan explode into flames as it conctn-rently fired up our spitits.

Tv-pical of UCLA football this year, the decision came down to the fourth quarter. As the temperature dropped in the Rose Bowl, spectators hastily threw on sweatshirts and hats, because they weren ' t going anywhere.

Before the final electoral college count came in, the two candidates, Al Gore and George W. Bush, were in astl ' different dispositions. Bush was relaxed, sitting comfortably in the Governor ' s Mansion in Te.xas alongside his wife and his parents, former President George Bush senior and Barbara Bush, watching the results toll in on the tele ision screen. On the East Coast, Al Gore was fervently making phone calls, trying to muster as many votes as possible in his favor. The final results came in around 2 a.m.: George W. Bush had won the electoral college vote. Yet this was only the beginning of a tumultuous series of events that will go dovvoi in the history hooks. Even though presidential candidate George W. Bush had technically won the election based on the electoral college, a few hours later, election officials from the state of Florida announced that diere would be a mandatory recount since Bush had won the state ' s popular ' ote by such a slim margin. Soon after, Al Gore ' s lawyers added to the fray bv bringing to the public ' s attention the " Butterfly Ballots " used in a number of Florida counties, which many Floridian voters considered excessively confusing due to its condensed and narrow layout. Bewildered voters punched the hole for the wrong candidate, or even punched two holes, which automatically disqualified their ballot. Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan recei ' ed a large number of votes on account of the mis- voting with the butterfly ballots. As a result, Gore ' s lawyers declared it in the interest of justice that Florida election officials recount the ballots by hand in order to remedy voters ' George W. Bush speaks to his supporters at the Family Arena in St. Charles in Missouri on Thursday, November 2, 2000. All around the nation, political excitment was in the air during the days before the election. mistakes. Chris Butcher, a third year euNdronmental studies student, did not agree in the efficacy of the hand recount. " This whole Florida mess most likely wasted millions of taxpayers ' dollars and will sadly accomplish nothing but put Bush back again in the Presidential seat, " commented Butcher On the other side. Bush ' s law) ' ers said a hand recount would be completely unfair, citing that while machines have preference of who no votes for whom, people doing the hand recounts do, thus removing the objectivity of die election process.

Aaron Ma, a fourth year political science student, also felt that the hand recount was unjust. " I think the hand recount is unfair because in every election there are always statistical inconsistencies, " said Ma. " It sets a bad precedent for future elections. " Toward the end of November, the Florida Supreme Court finally concluded that Bush had officially won Florida ' s majority vote. However, the Florida Supreme court then ordered a recount of over 40,000 " undervotes, " spurring Bush to appeal to die U.S. Supreme Court and causing the entire election process to again fall into uncharted waters of the legal system. It wasn ' t till the end middle of December before Gore conceded and Bush was declared the official winner of this rollercoaster election.

The 2000 Presidential Elections were, without a doubt, some of the most controversial elections in American political history. With two ambitious candidates, citizens knew the election would be close. No one could ever have guessed how close it really would be. As the East Coast polls began to close on November 7th, it became painfully clear that this election was going to come down to die wire. And, as the ballot count in Florida was announced then reannounced, it was obvious that neither Bush nor Gore was going to take defeat lying down. So die Florida recount and hand count, and every other count began, Americans waited patiently for the system to work. Would our votes really be null and void and our next president be elected by a panel of judges? It seemed so undemocratic. But in the end. Bush was finally declared to have won the electoral vote. It was about time. UCLA students reflected on this momentous election and gave their opinions on the consequences of Indecision 2000.

The unrelenting weather ga e no relief to the angiy protests that flared in front of the Staples building. Most of the stores in the area temporarily closetl down because owners feared that the protestors might damage their shops. Around its perimeter, police guarded against rioters. " At times their tactics seemed dangerous because they did some sudden things; I don ' t think the police put anyone in danger, " commented Brad Morikawa about the police at the conxention. Morikawa was a recent graduate of UCLA who was working as an intern for CBS. The Democratic Fari spoke of the three " P ' s " as part of their Democratic Platform: " Prosperity, " " Progress, " and " Peace. " Regarding " Prosperity, " the Democrats discussed reallocating the budget surplus to different projects such as lowering the National Debt and giving money to Social Securit) ' , Medicare, and Education. The ' also spoke of drafting an Electronic Bill of Rights to protect private citizens on the web. For " Progress. " Democrats spoke of ending the " revolving door " of drug and alcohol abusers repeatedly going in and out of jail and buffing up gun laws to protect children in the wake of the Columbine tragedy. In reference to " Peace, " the Democrats talked about dealing with the greenhouse effect, and containing global epidemics such as AIDS HIV. They also spoke of continuing to mediate peace talks for countries like Israel and at the same time continue " engaging " with other " problem-countries " such as Russia in its struggle to build a better democracy. Even though the majority of UCLA ' s population voted Democrat, a number of people were critical of Gore ' s campaign for the presidency. " I think Gore ran one of the worst campaigns in history because he didn ' t stress some important key issues, " commented Chris Butcher, a third year environmental studies student. " He ran away from any mention of Clinton like it was the plague and didn ' t stress all the good things that ha e come out of the past seven years when he and Clinton worked together to make this country what it is today. " Other public figures who spoke at the convention included Tennessee representative Harold Ford Jr. and the Reverend Jesse Jackson. " Mv favorite speech was definitely Jesse Jackson ' s, ' said Melanie Ho, a fourth year student who was an intern for the Democratic News Service at the convention. " He touched upon all the issues I believe are important, and I felt really inspired about die whole campaign. " Lynn Nishimura A protestor parades around the convention with a flag.

Li ing within close proximits ' to the Federal Building, UCLA students witnessed protest after protest ahout the Florida Recount. Some wanted Floridians to revote, others just wanted to see the end of the whole debacle. Regardless, the recount had Americans from coast to coast on the edges of their seats, an. iousI) ' awaiting the final decision. ..and waiting, and waiting, and waiting... So how did this all come about? The controversy began when several television news networks announced on No ' ember 8th, the end of election day, that Gore had won the ' ote in Florida and therefore the election. Se ' eral hours later, the neh orks withdrew the announcement, saving that the final results were yet to be determined. The next morning, it was announced that Bush had ultimately won the most votes in Florida and would be the 43rd Freident. Gore called Bush soon after the annomicment and conceded. Hours later, howexer, the Democrats were informed that Bush had won bv an extremelv small margin, motivating Gore to retract his earlier concession. ...And chaos ensued. With a margin of onlv 1,725 Notes, Florida state laws mandated an automatic machine recoimt of the ballots. Things were further complicated when the issue of the complex " butterfly ' ballots arose and 19,000 votes were disqualified, with man - votes suiprisingly going to Pat Buchanan. Soon after. Palm Beach County electors demanded that voters be allowed to revote in their counts ' . On November 9th, Gore demanded a hand recount of votes in four counties, all of which were predoniinantiv Democratic. Cf)nfusion reigned as the battle and the Democratic Presidential candidate Vice President A! Gore makes a statement from fiis home in Wastiington regarding ttie Florida recount on November 15, 2000. It was history in the making as America watched Florida for a decision on the next president. controversy wore on. Bush tiled a lawsuit against Gore questioning the validity of the recount and whether it was constitutional. Both the Deiuocrats and Republicans soon after presented their cases before the Floiida Supreme Court, at which point, most citizens lost interest. Will we ever have a new president? Mavbe we ' ll just have four more vears of Clinton. Maybe not. On the 12th of December the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Bush which halted the recounts in Florida. Altiiough the controversv ' continued, it was finally determined that Bush was the victor in the state of Florida and the next President of the United States. Undoubtedly, will fepfQ ' m (J VQ Of face extreme cvnicisiu due , ■ i i i i to the fact that many feel t dWldeQ that his election was won " in the courts.

Although the glamor and glitz of HollvTiVood was o e rwh e 1 m i n gly exciting, at times it hail its controversies. For example, the HollvvN ' ood premiere of Jim Carrevs Me, Ml self and Irene brought much heavy scrutiny and criticism from protesters who were offended by the movie ' s depiction of ' " " " " i- children, midgets, and handicapped people. A similar situation occured in the premiere of the cartoon movie South Park.

Both movies were R-rated and, like all movies of this rating, children under the age of 17 could not view the film without being accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Despite these occasional real-life Hollvwood dramas, the local movie and entertainment scene was just as exciting to Bruins as ever.

Using the UCLA campus as a main source of recruiting, hundreds of companies sent representatives to find future interns and employees. Manv opportunities were offered, vaning from part- time jobs to dream-fulfilling internships and permanent positions. The many companies represented in the job fair seemed to deepK ' reflect the location of our school. As a campus immersed in the boisterous, professional city of Los Angeles, and nmning alongside the glitz and glamour of Holh-wood, the many different companies at the Job F;iir accurately represented this bu.s ' cit " students lo ed so much. Investment banking firms galore, and broadcasting stations like CBS, ABC, and FOX were all united to e.xtend a helping hand to our UCLA students. Filled with mobs of students, the career fair was booming with new ideas, new positions, and tons of things to do. There was food available, and manv companies also gave awav freebies that sparked the interest of many students. " The job fair was a bit overwhelming with the masses of companies, but there was a lot of cool free stuff. There were bouncing b;ills that lit up and even free T-shirts. It was a great way for the companies to attract a diverse crowd of students, " said Ale.x Tang, a fourth year economics and accounting student. While students walked around in their spiff ' suits looking for jobs, talking to reps, and handing in resumes, they were able to see what large companies such as Abercrombie and Fitch and Walt Disney Incorporated had to offer. Walt Disney presented an enormous variety of positions, including options in advertising, legal practice, web design, and various computer engineering sectors. Students could also research opportunities at smaller businesses and organizations. Among those who turned in resumes, man ' were inter iewed on the spot and offered jobs. Others walked around picking up pamphlets, and initiated prospective ties to the businesses. Many said that the job fair seemed to be in alliance vith more of die business, economics, and communications majors, and neglected some others. For those interested in health science related intenisliips and jobs, the term " a job fair for all majors " seemed contradicton ' and misleading. For those who could not find a job diat suited their interests, there were many other job fairs that accommodated them throughout the year. The graduating seniors benefitted tremendously from the job f;iir. Because recruiters came with the sole purpose of offering jobs and internships (along with many cool toys and gadgets), it became an extremely easy way for UCLA students to get an early start in tlieir careers. Even if one did not land a job or an internship on the spot, the job fair incited an awareness of the many different fields out there in the real world.

At UCLA, Bruins were surrounded and influenced by many student organizations. " Mother " organizations like MECHA, AISA, ASU, LASA, and USAC were just a handful of groups on campus that were available to students. No matter what ethnic or racial group a student represented, there was a club or an organization that one could join. These groups not only gave students academic and moral support, but they also helped them find a niche on UCLA ' s large and sometimes overwhelming campus. Many of these organizations represented their dynamic culture and heritage in unique ways and performances. Students of the American Indian Student Association, for example, put on a cultural show in May at Spaulding Field called the POW WOW, the largest student run activity on campus. It included cultural Native American dances and dnuniners of different tribes from the West Coast and southwestern United States.

In ancient times, cities competed agiunst each other, jnst as the nations do today, earning respect for their place of birth. Over the years, this trend had altered, and often athletes trained in foreign countries while still competing for their native lands. The question then became whether the Games are a contest of heritage, or of athleticism? Did it still count as Czechoslovakian skill when the athlete had all of his coaching and did all of his actuall) ' competing. The appeal of the Games lied in the heart of the athletes, competing for the ultimate prize of a medal, and the respect of the world, instead of a salary of millions. There was a puritv in the competition of the Olympics that was so often lacking in professional sports. However, this year U.S. athletes were criticized for their professional-athlete- size egos, evident for example in the track team posing as Greek Gods. A refreshing change from this embarrassment found in performance APAYIDE WORLD PHOTOS Bernard Williams, right, runs with U.S. sprinter Maurice Greene, left, training in England? Which as he sets a year ' s record of 9.86 weighed more heavily - raw, seconds inthe Men ' s 100 meters. natural talent, or the finesse and perfection gained through coaching? Vhich was more important — the nationalit) ' of the athlete, or the nationality of the training? It seemed an OKanpiad cannot exist without certain amounts of both. The most fascinating aspect of the Olympics uas the wa ' in which this country pulls together in support of its athletes, regardless of background. The 2000 Olympics held in Sydney, Australia were a demonstration of the unification of the nation, indeed, of all nations. At no other time was a citizen so proud to belong to his or her country than when gazing upon the flag waving triumphantly above the crowd. Spectators sit ting on their couch felt as much pride in their countrv and in their athletes as those was the and behavior of the UCLA Bruins who were honored to participate in the Games. UCLA in particular tended to focus on diversit) ' , and individuality through heritage, yet when it came to sports, this issue was pushed to the background. Athletics seemed to be the only arena on campus when students were more concerned widi solidarity than individuality. Race and diversity were at the center of every issue on campus, but in sports, we were all blue and gold, regardless of our skin color. It did not matter so much where you came from, only that you performed to the best of your abiUty.

The achievements of his past and especially his continual effoits for peace were held in great esteem. He was an American hero. As the audience rose for multiple ovations, it was evident that former President Carter was worth) ' of the honor. Jimmy Cart:er gave the 21 annual Bernard Brodie Distinguished Lecture on the Conditions of Peace. His speech, entitled, " Talking Peace, " shed light on the many resolutions for peace in the past and his commentaries on both the present and future. He illustrated the tactics for peace used during his presidential term by reliving the Camp David Accords, which made peace between Israel and Egypt. He also explained how much progress toward peace was inade between North and South Korea in these recent years. " I was amazed that at 76 years old, Carter still had the drive to remain a world leader for peace, " commented Jimmy RoUins, a first year undeclared student. A question-answer session also gave the audience the opportunity to come in direct contact with former President Jimmy Carter. Three questions were randomly selected from the audience and answered directly by our former president. " The second question was the one I had submitted on mv card, and I was verv ' flattered thev chose to ask it. In so many words. Carter expliuned that militaiy action is, and always should be the last resort. He gave figures comparing the number of times he emplo)ed the mihtaiy compared to how many times it had been used in recent years, and it was clear that our world involvement had risen dramatically, " said Rollins. His integrity was unquestionably apparent in Royce Hall that night, and it thereafter lingered in the minds of the many who found his ideals and character amazing.

Eating tacos between classes, dining with friends in Westwotxl and passing out fliers for a club all constituted student life on campus. College was not just about grades and getting into Siradiiate school. It was about who nou were, who xou are, and ho von are going to become. The mam acti ities for Bniins to take part in lets us have fun as well as helped to shape our futures. Life at UCLA was nothing if not busy. Students performed a constant juggling act of their responsibilites at scliool, work, and extra-curricular acti ities. Bruins, however, alwa s made time for fun. Whether students got involved in the exciting night life at UCLA, in the trend - fashion world of LA, or student government on campus, student life was a whirlwind of sociiJ activities that were as different as the students who were involved in them. Student groups at UCLA formed some of the most popular activities for Bruins after school. The groups ranged from Greek organizations to honor societies and troiu sports clubs to communitv senice programs. If there was somediing a student wanted to be involved in, UCLA probably had a group which participated in it. But there were many other aspects of student life other than just student groups. Tlie outside world had a great deal of influence on student hie at UCLA. Trends and fashions formed Bruin stvles and ideas, and popular T ' siiows and uuisic were the topics of conversations all over campus. Living so close to the glitz of Hollvwood, many students felt the pressures of keeping up with the latest trends, while other students did all thev could to avoid being " so Hollywood. " Regardless of preference, UCLA certainly showed signs of external influence as students were very aware of the world outside of Westwood. A little closer to home, student life was largely centered on campus. Sick students made the trip to the Arthur Ashe Center for those much needed antibiotics, while healthy Bruins jogged next door in tlie Wooden Center or climbed on the rock climbing wail. Many more students just hung out on Bruin Walk, socializing, people watching, and killing time. The many facilities on campus made UCLA the center of student life. Life at UCLA consisted of as many activities and aspects as there were students. Bruins differed greatly in the things which thev considered to be daily activities. From student groups, to LA trends, student life represented the manv different backgrounds and interests of the student body as students found their own niches within the school. Regardless of what it was that Bruins did with their time, or how they did it, students made their experiences, their own. And regardless of the paths they chose. Bruins agreed, that life at UCLA, was good.

Coffee mugs were held as firniK ' as rifles, and backpacks used as shields. Sandwich boards dotted the hill like crouched soldiers, behind which their representati es waited to pounce on the unsuspecting traxeller. The battlefield in front of Kercklioff was used b ' man - a politician, gathering support from his or her " troops " on the newest political issue. The scene was void of an - real danger, fatality was improbable, but ne ertheless, it was a war zone. This chaotic scene could only be Bruin Walk, the center of campus both plnsicalK ' and figurati ' elv. This was the Ho Chi Minh Trail, No Man ' s Land, the neutral ground that draws the line in the sand between the two competing factions: North and South campus. In spite of the oxer vhelming anarchv or perhaps because of it. Bruin Walk continued to be the central gathering place, the life force of UCLA. Some students were apprehensive about even strolling by, contamination of so manv enthusiasts gathered in one place. " I ha e to admit, I didn ' t realh know what to do the first time someone came up to me " said fourth ' ear microbiology student . drienne Rice. Still, students had to get to Taco Bell somehow... Others loved the chaos, loved the debates and the performances, and sat in the eye of the storm on the hill below Kercklioff during breaks between classes, simply absorbing all of the energx- of their passionate peers. The centraliU ' of its location on campus caused the Walk to become the focal point for students from iill walks of life.

Many UCLA students enjoyed using such devices as Wallcmans and Discmans to give them that extra boost of energ y as they moved through the day. By Jenny Raven theb A fter spending endless hours of studying, the stresses of school could temporarlK be replaced with the click of a button. Dramas, niillion-dollar game shows, and " realits " tele ision caught the eyes of many Americans and pro ided a study break for Bruins. Shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and Survivor proved to be the most watched teleyision programs not only in the dorms, but in all of America. Other shoyvs like Dawson ' s Creek, Will and Grace, Felicity, Friends. The Real World, and Dat s of Our Lives were among the fayorite programs of students. After the what ' s-gonna-happen- ne.xt?! season fiuiile chffliangers, the new 2000-2001 season jump started yvith millions of viewers wondering ' Did she or didn ' t she? ' (Dawson ' s Creek) or ' Will tliey get married? ' (Friends). Pop culture in music was rampant among UCLA students as well. The teeny-boppers continued to dominate MTV ' s TRL charts. Everywhere people went, the immistakable vocals of boy bands like NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, and teen pop queens such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera could be heard. Punk rock and hiphop were crowd-pleasers as well. Artists hke Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock, Blink 182, Incubus, Destiny ' s Child, and Sis(jo topped the charts, with songs like " I i ad to break dav ce battle aqd Y 5 5ome of e be5 breaker5 m (f e coMKitriy), " - DaKi Nier Sociologi 4t(n L ear Rollin ' and Independent Woman. While many artists were topping the charts with their catchy tunes, Eminem sparked controversy and topped headlines. This year, with the help of Dr. Dre, Eminem was able to steamroll over the boundaries of freedom of speech, drayving his oyvn lines and taking nodiing from nobody. This radical new artist changed rap forever, sparking up endless debates on whether he was breaking down sterotypes or reinforcing them through his lyiics. Some appreciated his boldness in expressions, others did not approve of the language of his songs. Each student enjoyed a particular style or beat of their oyvii. Fourth year student Dan Nier, an avid music fan, was able to express this when he was chosen to be MTV ' s Sisqo ' s Shakedown Champ. " I had to break dance battle agiiinst some of the best breakers in the country, " he said. Rage Against the Machine and Smashing Pumpkins expeiienced their oyvn kind of breaks: the break-up of their bands to the avail of many. Luckily, students still enjoyed their music on the radio and on-line. However, music fans on the internet sparked controversy yvith the sharing of MP3 files. Lars from Metallica made headlines by speaking out against Napster and had the support of many fellow recording artists. The media impacted the exendav lives of UCLA students. Whether one was whistling while meandering to class or singing in the shower, students were exposed to ;ill different types of tunes. Music and telexision contributed heayily to the pop culture that encompassed campus life. 56 STUDENT LIFE A male student manually flips through channels on his television set.

Surpnisingly, many students even fouiiifl the time to volunteer vsdth more than one organization. ' California Public Interest Research .roup, or CALPIRG was a popular ' choice for many students. Offering opportunities for beach cleanups, recycling programs, and a hunger and homelessness committee, among others, the organization gave students opportunities to devote time to the causes that most concerned them. CALPIRG olunteer Robyii Sulli an, a third year political science student, was on the hunger and homelessness committee last yean " Last year we organized a tri da game on Bruin Walk with questions about what type of people make up the homeless population, and the number of people who are currently homeless. We gave Rice Krispy treats to people who got the right answers. People were surprised with the answers to the questions and it raised awareness about the e.xtent of the problem. " Many volunteer programs on campus offered students a chance to tutor underprivileged children. One of these programs was Project Share, an after- school tutoring session in inner city Los Angeles. UCLA students travelled by van one afternoon a week to help elementar) ' and junior high school students with their homework and to play educational games with them. Bruin Belles was one of the most prominent volunteer organizations on campus. Third year histor) ' student Katharine Ng talked about her experience as a Bruin Belle. " Volunteering in Bruin Belles is wonderful. You get to help the community and leam about how a non- profit organization works at the same - , time.

Last year, I volunteered ttistOTM ' ' ' ' " le ' s shelter for teen mothers- it was a cool experience and I got to see JfQ GQf how different other girls " lives can be. " Students were involved in volunteer programs off campus as well. Bruins participated in the annual AIDS Walk, as well as the Race for the Cure. These programs benefitted AIDS patients, and women with breast cancer While some students ran or walked in support of the programs, others volunteered their time for organization and administration. Whether it was through the mentoring and tutoring of children, doing beach clean ups, or volunteering in medical facilities, students found many different ways to donate their time to those in need. Just as the student body at UCLA was diverse, so were their opportunities to volunteer widiin this large and needy community.

Cell phones were another item that proved to be more of a necessit ' than a fad for thousands of Bmins. And boy, were they everywhere. Ringing in class, beeping outside of Powell and generally occupving the attention of many walking students, cell phones popped in every ' place imaginable. With bright colors and rings from traditional tones to hip-hop songs, cell phones became an expression of style while remaining practical.

" Regardless of what style or look Bruins acheived, the world of fashion and fads was certainly apparent. Whether it was the glamorous influence of Hollywood, the casual air of Santa Monica or the busy feeling of Vest LA, students were in touch with what was in.

Both on and off campus, working Bruins found time for earning extra cash and gaining aluable work e.xperience. Finding a job at UCLA could lia " e been o enxhelming, but oiil - because there were so man - emploxnient opportunities available to students. On campus, students were readiK " hired at the UCLA Store, in the man ' different eateries, at the libraries, and for many other customer ser ice positions. " ' [Working] was a fun way to meet people and to take a break from studxing, " said first ear student Amber Richer. Richer worked 14 hours a week at the Kercklioff Coffee House and managed to balance school and work, partK ' because of the flexible hours axailable at her job. In addition to the flexibilit - of on campus jobs, students found that working near residence halls and classrooms was an adchtional benefit to working at UCLA. Third ear computer science student Lincoln Luk was another Bruin that ' orked on campus and appreciated its flexibilih. T prefered working on campus because it was convenient and I didn ' t have a car. ' he said. Luk worked ten hours a week at the Alumni Center on website and webpage maintenance and web base application development.

" His e.xperiences as a working Bruin were representati e of the man ' students ' ho also had to juggle school and jobs. The Career Center, a useful resource to all students, was instrumental in helping Bruins find intemships and work opportunities at school and in the surrounding areas. Here students could research job possibilities for companies and organizations outside of UCLA as well as those a little closer to home. For example, some students chose to intern or work at the Student Media Center on campus. The headquarters for all student based publications, the Media Center pro ided a useful outlet for students looking for journalistic experience while earning a little extra money. Other Bniins found the Anderson School of Management an excellent opportunit) ' for learning the ropes of the competitive business world. Anderson offered both paid positions and intemships to undergraduate students that had future interests in the business, management, and accounting worlds. As interns and emplovees, both on and off campus, many working Bruins found that they learned aluable lessons about time management and the ways of the working world in addition to earning a little extra cash.

Sangtip Chiendpradap holding By Erin Sheffield The Undergraduate Student Association Council, or USAC as it was more comnioiiK ' knowii, pla ed an important role in student life at UCLA. Among its responsibilities were coordinating events on campus, offering educational seminars and programs for students, providing funds to students groups, and acting as a representative of the student body to the administration. Last vear USAC organized a bipartisan oter registration dri e on Bruin Walk in anticipation of last falls presidential election. USAC ' s subcommittee, the Student Welfiire Commission, planned " Remember My Name " in honor of Domestic Abuse Awareness week. There were also manv multicultural events sponsored by USAC. LJSAC was composed of a panel of elected representatives who the entire student body elected in a campus- wide election. Appointed positions were also available. For the past five years the same slate, something similar to a political party, had governed USAC. This slate " Praxis Students First! " typically had liberal views and opinions about issues such as affirmative action. This year, however, the run was broken when independent candidate Elizabeth Houston, a transfer student ' ith conservative " I y iav ed to qe more people involved, amd break t(he political madme (f a ad controlled t c M5AC for 50 long, " - Elizabeth HoMSton Political Science 4t eaY office views, beat the Praxis candidate by a very small margin. The race was finally determined after a nm-off took place. The controversy over the outcome of the election (hmm, doesn ' t that sound familiar...) was factor in the UCLA student government for the entire 2000-2001 term. Members of both " parties " conflicted frequently as their ideas about the direction USAC should take, differed as much as the students themselves. However, despite their manv difficulties and the obstacles that faced them, student government continued to be a representational and effective part of UCLA and student activity. Students themselves had mixed feelings about the change in the control of student government. Some felt that change would do the school good, while others were aaxious about the tlisruption in the status quo. But despite the concern of many, Houston was optimistic as she assumed office. She took her position as 2000-2001 USAC president with ideas to change the wa)- that student go ' ernnient had been run in previous years. She hoped to give " fair funding to all groups and offer equal representation in student government. " Houston, a fourth year political science student " wanted to get more people involved, and break the political machine that had controlled USAC for so long. " She hoped diat she could reform die practices that past USAC members had implemented with only a few campus groups receixing the majority of funds.

Man students flocked to the Powell Libran- where one could ;ilwavs find a quiet seat and a studious work en ironnient. Another popular stud - spot was Kercklioff Coffee House. A noisier, but more lively choice, Kerckhoff was open until late and always offered that much needed cup of caffeine. " Sometimes it ' s a good break from the Ubrary; due to its hveliness, " said third vear biochemistry student, Mahmud Penjwini. ' hile students sometimes felt o ' eri.vhelmed hv the academic load at UCLA, help could idwavs be found. Professors and teaching assistants offered regular office hours and welcomed questions and concerns from their students. Adchtional help could iilso be found through tutoring.

Classes such as acting, guitar, and photography were also available to students with a more artistic tendency. .or lack thereof. Instructors cbd not discriminate against students who lacked experience, and in fact encouraged those who had never tried the classes to give it a shot. Most students found the classes to lie fun and rewarding, and well worth the time. Whether athletes or artists. Wooden offered a little something for everyone. With just a simple pass of their Brain Gold Cards, students were granted access to a world of excellent fitness and recreational resources. Intramural Sports, or IM were the other options for fun ways to get some exercise and relieve a little stress. Different groups of students came together to form teams which played competitively against each other in football, soccer, tennis, Softball, basketball, and many other sports. Teams formed from all walks of life.

It was great to get out there and nm around, and the competition just made the games so much more fun, " said fourth year business economics major David Hutchins. IM teams were open to everyone and the games were mostly scheduled for the evenings so students would not have class or work conflicts. Friends and sports fans came out as well to support and cheer on their favorite student teams. Regardless of talent or athletic ability. Bruins had fun pla) ' ing, and even more fun winning.

Tiying to figure out the opposite sex was ven ' confusing, challenging and it always managed to puzzle us. There were many ditterent kinds of relationships, including long chstance ones. After talking to students, it seemed that there were both advantages and disadvantages to these difficult romances. Fourth year, psycholog) ' major, SheetiJ Patel said, " It ' s easier to focus on school and appreciate each other ' s company, et there is not enough Hme to spend with each other and phone bills can be exjiensixe. " Many would say that trast, honests ' , and communication were the most important factors in a relationship. According to third year sociolog) ' major, Ahmed Asghari, " Respect, unconditional support and love, " were some of the things he looked for in a relationship. Communication was be difficult and sometimes it was hard to find time or to compromise, but if lioth people - S eetal Patel P5 cf o og 4t(o ear wanted the relationship to work, it could be done.

" Short-term relationships on the nthe hand were also great because they were less demanding and stressful. By sharingXthe same interests, it was easier to find things that both people enjo ed doing. Dating ks frientls was et another option. " Id prefer a short-term relationship now because I have no reason to settle downi just et, " replied third year business economics student, Christine Lee.

Bruins from different majors sought out programs abroad that fulfilled their academic needs and gave them opportunities to live in regions of the world that they had never known before. The UC Education . broad Program offered an academic and exciting opportunity to study in countries on almost every continent. The programs had specific concentrations on integration into the cultures of the host countries. " After a while, I got to be really good friends with my Spanish roommates.

It ga ' e many indents their first sense of pride in being a UCLA student, and breathed man ' aspirations to these freshmen. Students were di ided up into their respecti e majors and die groups discussed academic requirements as well as student concerns. But orientation was not all work. Welcome week staff also organized fun events and activities for students during the evening. " Carpe Noctum, " the nighttime scaxanger hunt was one of the most popular acti ities. Students had to ran all o ' er campus, finding unique and quirk- ' things about buildings, people and objects related to UCLA. Students commented that the sca anger hunt was a great wd to get to know UCLA, even if they did get lost a few times. In addition to the introducton lectures and fun acti ities, students also learned inxaluable information about registering for classes and the academic part of UCLA. Orientation counselors guided students through the rather daunting process of selecting their classes and registering. Although for some this was the most frustrating part of orientation, most students also found it to be the most helpful. " The orientation counselors were the best. Tlie ' actualK ' answered questions, and made theniseKes erv ' accessible. They didn ' t leave me hanging in the dark. " said Trang Nguven, a first year mathematics student. Between the frantic struggle to find their first college classes, the plentiful inspirational speeches, and amusing acti ities, the freshmen took many placement tests in this brief three day stay. The chemistn-, mathematics, music, and language placement tests were all offered. Taking the multitude of tests seemed a bit tedious for some students, but it was necessar) ' in order tor them to choose which courses to enroll in. Freshmen orientation was also a great time to meet people. Manv participated in a repetitive three-Liner process, asking for names, hometowns, and majors. These introductions were often short-lived, yet many led to interesting and stimulating conversations, and some even led to future friendships at UCLA. " Orientation was an interesting pre-college experience, " summed up Grace Kim, a first ear applied mathematics student.

Yet making the most out of their e.xperiences, these rooms often became the center of entertainment for many floors. " We called ourselves the Rainbow Koom in the Hediick 6 Noith lounge. This is because all six of us were so different in race, personalities, and hobbies, " said Tri Tran, a first year biology student. This exceptional time, a punishment for procrastination, suqirisingly became a reward for many who shared these commodious and often amusing " lounge homes. " Living standards also sky-rocketed with the long-awaited opening of the DeNeve suites. Although the buildings were not fully constructed, some few, luck-x ' students were ISt AQQf able to experience living in these hotel-like rooms on campus. Each room had its own bathroom, which was a concept much coveted by the residence hall students. " People say that social life is a bit dry here, but it iJl depends on who you are and what you make of it, " said Anna Chan, a first year undeclared student. Amidst the better living conditions, there were manv problems due to the unfinished and ongoing construction. Elevators were often dysfunctional. DORMS 85 Halloween grams on sale!

Resident advisors, program advisors, and floor governments constantly provided many activities. Dykstra Hall, eighth floor went on an all-floor snowboarding trip one weekend, while the first floor of Building E in DeNeve held a piano recital another weekend. Many other halls held tailgatingi parties, trips to Third Street Promenade, and other Los Angeles activities. At the end of the vear, dormals (dorm formals) also became a big hit with the on-campus residents.

The responsibilities of cooking, cleaning. and paxing bills, however, tpok some time to get used to. A] ter two years of dorm life, UCLA students were forced to move out on their own without RAs, prepared food, or the compan ' o their floor-mates, into apartment Apartment life was for man people a first lesson on cooking, cleaning, and budgeting. Cooking was a major undertaking for many studentK who had rarely cooked for tlremseKes before. Many startefl out the vear with high exj " )e ' tations such as cooking full me lls e ' eiT night and sitting dovvni to eat with their roommates. This fantas) lasted n a few weeks when busy schedules allowed time for ' only macaroni and cheese or Top Ramen on the go. Students also had to allow time for trips to the grocers ' store, either locally at Breadsticks on Cayley, or at Ralphs or Albertson ' s on Wilshire. Nicholas Sanchez, a third ear histoiy and p.sychologN ' student said, " I missed the conxenience of not haxing to buy or make m food, or wash the dishes, but the dorm food wasn ' t alwavs appealing and at least I could make what I like. 1 missed socializing with people at dinner though. " Apartment life also ended up being a crash course in home repiiir. Although maintenance was supposed to be taken care of, many apartment dwellers such as " Dorm food VMQsri ' t alwavjs appedmg av d at least I com Id maike wto I Wike, I mi55 50c a zmg wit people at dmvier t oiAgk " - Nicfiolas Sam ez History) Rolmi Sullixan foimd themsehes frxing or repairing run-down fixtures. Sullivan, a third year political science student, said, " I gave up on trying to get the maintenance man up here so I had to fix the toilet mxself on several occasions. " Negligent managers also proved to be an apartment problem that man ' students had to face. Sharon (■regg, a fifth year psychology student, thought her apartment last X ' car was " bad and nm dowai. " Gregg continued, however, that her three year stay in the dorms was " too much " and that she nmch preferred apartment living. Gregg commented that, " the best thing about apartment life is the fact that you get to pick your roommates. " Although this held tme for most students, roommate relations were not alwavs as great as 3rd V 6Gf expected. Students had to share living spaces and clean up duties that t re not factors in dorm living. " The dish situation in ni) ' apartment got a little out of hand sometimes, " commented Josh Barrett, a fourth year computer science major While students did miss the social atmosphere of the dorms, on the whole, living in apartments gave students a sense of freedom and independence. Students found that taking responsibility for the day-to-day parts of living on their owai was positive experience. Apartment life offered students the freedom of the dorms with more privacv and an environment they could make their owm. Though challenges like cooking and paying bills proved to he formidable tasks. Bruins enjoyed the freedom and experience of apartment life. APARTMENTS 91 Friendly, By Ashleigh Lonson ' | f 11 Weary apartment hunters found an alternative at the co-of Amongst the expensive rents, ridiculous housing shortage and sometimes impersonal apartment buildings arose an affordable and viable living option for UCLA students: the Co-op. The Universit)- Cooperative Housing Association, UCHA, was one of the only organizations which offered a different and interesting lixing environment for students who were fed up with the hassles of apartment searching. At the co-op, residents were members as well as owners and decided collectiveh ' on the mles and regulations that governed the house. Members had to ha e good social skills and a willingness to compromise in order to live in this friendly en aronment. But what made the co-op so different from other living options? Co-op residents pay some of the most inexpensive rent in Westwood, which includes furniture, utilities and meals (with the veggie option available, of course) in exchange for four hours a week of work in the house.

A sense of community was formed for inany within the Greeks Shalini Dogra system. Greek Life captured the hearts and devotion of many Growing up as an onK ' child did not prevent thousands of Bmins from finding brothers and sisters in college. The UCLA Greek system, consisting of dozens of fraternities and sororities, let students find a niche among the masses. ' ith the traditional fraternities and sororities as well as those dedicated specifically to academics, religion and learning about a particular culture, there were many places where one could call home. Amid controversy at the first of the year due to a downbeat editorial in the Daily Bruin, Greek life at UCLA was under scrutiny. However, the negative tone of a few did not cause new pledges or active members to forget what it was tniK- like to be a part of a sorority or fratemit)-. There were parties, meetings, philanthropy events and parents ' da ' s that gave members the chance to socialize and ha e a good time. " My favorite event was ADPicnic, " said fourth year history student Marcella Cortez, who was a member of Alpha Delta Pi. " It was one of the events where eyer) ' one in the whole house came together, had fun, and did something to help others. " This philanthropy event was just one of many that allowed members of the Greek system to assist charities. As every house had a specific philanthropy, there were always events to attend. Besides these, houses had other happenings that " I kmosW foMKid symQ of (f Q be5 frmdb I will e er (f (JNQ " - McKeKizie Kwijal AmericofKi LiteratMre and CMlti ire 4t(i bjear were inore about having fun and getting away from school for an evening. Houses gave awards for high scholarship and even held dinners for professors to come talk and share an evening with their Greek students. Parties, formal dances, and sisterhood and brotherhood events were all an integral part of every Greek ' s life. Some of the larger events, such as foam and regular dance parties that were held on fratemitv row, were attended by thousands of Greeks and independent students as well. Overall, students who went Greek found something more important and more satisfying within the system than just parties or events. Every house consisted of people with a common bond of friendship and loyalty ' to each other. Each member was unique and their diverse interests and talents brought them all together. " I honestly found some of the best friends I will ever have, " said second year American literature and culture student McKenzie Kuyal of Gamma Phi Beta. " Everyone always just says that, but it really is true. " With alumni who visited frequently and offered their time and financial assistance, current Greeks saw how important the system was years ago. It was with this same dedication and love for their sisters and brothers that UCLA Greeks devoted their time and hearts to their organizations and will certainly continue to do so in the future.

While it was rumored ( icious gossip staited b the UCLA PR teain, no doubt) that we had the privilege of eating at soiue of the coimtr ' s best donu cafeterias, no students truly believed the rumor. It turns out, however, tliat being awa) ' from moiu lueant luuch more than missing out on home cooking; it also meant having complete autonomy over food choices. With buffet style cafeterias, students could have as much, or as little in the case of brussel sprouts, as thev wanted. This was a good thing, since there was no proverbial dog around to hide the evidence of forfeited hma beans. The apartments were not much different: students having to cook for themselv es for the first time tended to relv on lots of macaroni and cheese and canned soup...veiy few students felt up to tackling moiu ' s meatloaf recipe. Food was evenvvhere you looked, and convenientlv available at ;ill hours. It seemed there was always something and somewhere to eat, be it Tommy ' s chili fries after parties, or Jerrv ' s Famous Deli for milkshakes at three in the morning. For UCLA students, food was a social activitv; with study groups meeting over coffee, friends gathering at Taco Bell on Bruin Walk, and herds of sororits ' girls lining up at Penguin ' s. Shy freshmen found safet - in numbers when braving the dorm cafeterias, and fraternities held barbecues on their balconies.

Through shows, demofmrations, and weekly meetings, students showed sijpjfcrt for tiieir different groups on issues diat ranged from religion to politics and just about eveiything in behveen. Different student organizations of course represented nian - ideas, cultures, heritages and ethnic groups. Walking dowii Bmin walk, students could barely avoid the solicitations and flyers with which student group representatives bombarded passer-bys. Although many students found these sometimes zealous supporters to lie irritating, student organizations were about much more than just standing on the walk and assaulting innocent students. Groups such as the African Student Union, ASU, have grown significanth ' o er the last several years. ASU, in its statement of puipose, stated that the organization strives to " promote and protect the interests of African American students at UCLA. " While many groups did " promote the interests " of one specific pait} ' , the various student organizations tried to support each other. Groups worked together to tr and achieve their conmion goals. From the Sailing Team to Bmin Democrats, students got involved in many different on campus organizations. Whether searching for cultural and ethnic representation or just for something to do, student groups provided an outlet for everything and anything UCLA students could think of A student urges passer-bys to join the Bruim Democrats. Students found Bruin Walk to be an excellent place to advertise upcoming events and to raise awareness about their groups. • Supporters are available to answer questions and provide information on their group.

By Hellen H Lee 1 rVVy fVI UCLA students exceeded classroom expectations For the academic-venture seekers on campus, there were many honor societies that satiated these intellectnal desires. The piiiposes of these organizations were to offer college education at more interacti ' e and challenging levels. Honors societies were based on academic achie ' ements and had strict selection piocesses. In many departments on campus, honor societies existed for those students who excelled immenseh in their areas of interest. Although many societies existed on the UCLA campus, two were especially prominent. The Golden Key and Phi Beta Kappa. Both programs offered students distinguished " ,„ fr e nd5f] p, morality, av d earmg, I beWe e tto t( e5e are principles tto I (hoje lived by av d wi5 to contii iMC to live by, " - Amir A, G(icfferi Pf 5 o Dg ca a c a d e m i c 5c ev ce Mv i ear recognition. The Golden Keys headquaiters were established in 1921, originally built in a private residential home. It has flourished into a huge organization that recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence in all undergraduate fields of study. The society offered students the opportunity to run for leadership positions, apply for scholarships, and travel to different regions as UCLA representati es. Phi Beta Kappa was a society that was 102 STUDENT LIFE open exclusively to graduating seniors and exceptional juniors with C PAs neai " 3.9. As an honor society open to Letters and Science or Engineering students, theyV ' prided themseK ' es on ha ing members wh had experienced diversity and challengesfln their classes. This prestigious honor society stood as one of the oldest fraternities in the nation. Established in the Ivy Latigue schools in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa e.xpjftnded and created many chapters all o ' pr the nation. Amir A. Ghaferi the president of Phi Beta Kappas LICLA chapter sain, " The Socieh ' s key depicts a pointing firger and three stars that signify the ambitic n of the oimg scholars that founded the organization and the three distin3;uishing principles of their Society — friendship, morality, and learning. I believe tl at these are principles that I have lived by and wish to continue to live by. " Phi Beta! Kappa provided benefits beyond the imnressive addition to one ' s graduate school application. As a lifetime member, there were infinite numbers of social functions, luncheons, and guest lectures axailVble. Success was eminent to those who «ere alumni to this association. Phi Beta Ka[5p a alumni ha e included past presidents art six of tlie current Supreme Court justices. Honor societies became an important part of the UCLA academic experience. They offered scholarly students social and academic opportunities that proved invaluable in their undergraduate and graduate careers and provided a stimulus for intellectual activity amongst their members.

Lee Camp An array of religious representations was present on Bruin Walk B ruin Walk should ha e been renamed. Since this was not possible, it should have ended before students reached the multitudes of booths that arra ed the last portion of Bruin Walk. This last section could have been called " Religious Walk " to clearly illustrate the great numbers of religious booths that offered services and information to those who sought it. As we uiilked down " ReUgious Walk, " students saw a huge variet ' of religious establishments from Christian clubs, to Muslim societies, to Jewish awareness organizations. Gatherings of rehgions were often simultaneouslv serious and social. Man ' groups offered to help individuals grow in their knowledge of their respective religions. Jewish Awareness Movement, or JAM, tra eled to New York as a group to learn more about their reUgion. They stayed with Jewish families and learned more about their Jewish religion and customs. Korean Campus Crusade for Christ, or KCCC, held early moming prater meetings every day to pra - for one another and for the many people of the world. Also, in each of the dorm halls, there were multitudes of bible studies that one could attend for spiritual nourishment and answers. These same groups also offered many social events to encourage bonding and friendship among the members. Another Christian group, the Crossroads Campus Ministries, " ReligioM5 Je N5 cav] (r CNQ af AV time, M q ov is km to CNe a qood time m5 ead of keeprnq p A from ihmnq a qood time, " - Sean McDonnell Theater or CCM, went broom balling at the beginning of the vear to allow upper and lower classmen to become better acquainted with one anodier. " We ' re focused on pointing collegians to the cross (our motto) through acti ities, events, fellowship, and discipling. " said James Oh, a third-year business economics student. Inter- Varsits; another Christian organization, left the hectic pace of the city for one weekend, and spent a few days together (jn CJatalina Island. Sean McDonnell, a fourth year theater student said, " Religious Jews can have a fun time. Religion should show you how to have a good time instead of keeping you from ha ing a good time. " In addition to these reHgious groups were many other forms of religious gatherings. Al- Talib, the Muslim Newsmagazine, served to reach out to the Muslim communit - through the written word. Christian fraternities also existed to uphold Christian brotherhood, supporting each other in their faiths. College is often a time when students tend to lose sight of their religious upbiinging, 4t [APCkY focusing instead on the temptations of college independence. It was refreshing to belong to a campus where rehgious faith was embraced by so many students. With Bmin Walk as a link between the public and religious organizations, diversit)- of religion and thought was widely avmlable on the UCLA campus.

Though they soon realized that these were just a few of the nunors told as an annual rite of passage, not all freshmen could help believing that some of the strange tales were true. " Ve thought - it ' s UCLA, anything might be possible! " said first year student Matt Nguyen. And Nguyen wasn ' t alone in his naivete, as most incoming freshmen fell victim to the wild imaginations of their orientation counselors. Who knows, that might have been Jim Morrison ' s locker! Along with the traditional rumors about the helicopter lifting of Bunche Hall and the South Campus ear wax mold, new ones appeared: This year, UCLA was supposedly adding a farm to the IM field. While many freshmen secretly believed that these rumors just might have been true, not all were fooled. " My friends told me about the walk around at orientation and that at the end they say it ' s all not tnie, " said first year student Dan Kasuga. The notions of overcrowded dorms and unfinished buildings scared freshmen as well. However, these rumors " I felt pretti 5tMpid beca A5e I was (f e epitomized gMllible fre5 mav " - Dav KasMga Ay dec ared l5t ijeofr turned out to be true for an unlucky few in the recently completed De Neve Plaza. " The door didn ' t lock and we didn ' t have any screens on our windows, " said first year student Adam Langenbachen Other freshmen in triples had heard about the crowded dorms and found them to be a reality. " You really had to be considerate of a lot of people, " said first year student Khoeung Khieng. Academic rumors scared students more than anything else. Incoming freshmen heard that most UCLA students had a 1400 SAT score, that ever»-bod ' fails their first quarter and that the coinpetition was so stiff that students purposel)- share incorrect lecture notes. However, after attending the first few weeks of classes, freshmen realized that these rumors were nodiing more than legend. " I felt pretty stupid because I was the epitomized gullible freshman, " said Kasuga. So why terrify these poor first years before the year even starts? In one word, tradition. Rumors about UCLA and its campus have been a part of the orientaion (or should we say " initiation " ) process for years. Students get a kick out of the harmless and humorous jokes. Despite the somewhat daunting nunors that circulated, inost freshmen and incoming students realized that the truth of the matter was that college was not going to be the terrifying experience they had once believed it to be. UCLA may have bizarre rumors, but Bruins quickly learned that diere was little to fear on campus and college might even turn out to be... fun. 106 STUDENT LIFE 1 di Because of the Janss brother buried under the steps, superstitious Bruins often skip the sixth step when they trek this path. Stories hke this were told to freshmen at orientation. Naive freshmen readily believe that UCLA is making the IM field into a fann.

Sunset Boulexard, another unique part of the city, had tons of unique restaurants and clubs, and Mel ' s Diner was a classic and traditional favorite among all. Clubs like Dublin ' s.

The vast range of different clothing, languages, cars, and homes epresented the imique mi. of people that existed and ived within the citv limits of Los Angeles.

While pursuing a college degree, ROTC students were also able to exjDerience leadership activities and real-world situations that manv college students were not e.xposed to. The Career Center was another UCLA feature that added more opportunities and connections to alumni, providing an added advantage that prepared students for the work force.

Besides these programs, UCLA ' s diverse atmosphere also prepared students for life after college. " UCLA broadened my horizons in terms of coming from a conservative, protective city; It really opened my eyes to the vast diversity of people, " said 1974 alumni Jody Lawshe. Living in the dorms and apartments around campus also gave students a glimpse into the real world. With more freedom than at home, freshmen especially noticed how different the dorms were than h ing with family. " It was a big change, especially if someone was brought up strictly, " said first year student Danielle Ruiz. " You acted out on your own without anyone pa ing attention to what you did. " Though RAs may have cracked down on too-loud parties and midnight yelling during finals week, dorms were about as much freedom as a high school graduate could hope for. Living with up to two other roommates in close quarters taught Bruins the values of respect and cooperation, which were absolute necessities after college. Apartment Ufe taught older students how to deal with noisy neighbors, strict landlords, and most importantly, doing one ' s own laundr - and cooking - real world duties that seem to torment all that live on their own. Though it was a big change for many, UCLA wasn ' t as bnital or difficult as life in the real world. Rather, it provided a gentle transition that made that step easier, allowing students to find out who they were and what they wanted before jumping into hfe at full force.

Extreme sports such as skateboarding were extremely popular at UCLA as students searched out new and dangerous ways to get a rush. One sport in particular literally took place on edges - s n o w b o a r d i n g . Snowboarding was challenging not only physically, but also mentally. One had to be able to adapt to harsh weather conditions, be able to pull off jumps, and also think about their own safety. There were many advantages and disadvantages to this particular sport. The main disadvantage was the fact that snowboarding is a seasonal sport. Mountains and snow were an essential part of this now ultra-popular actixitx; but they can be hard to come b ' in our sunny cit)-.

Road Rules appealed to cmlege viewers because of its challenging mmsions including sk ' diving, skyboardinM and competitions in other seasonal events like winter sports. While the challenge of an extreme sport competition was tennpting, participants often won themselves lot only a medal for their skill, but also a fre ; ride to the emergenc - room. But then aga n, it was all about die risk, right? It took a special kind of person tc actually attempt a sport such as skydiving, or rock climbing. " Sk- di ing was one of me best things Fve e%er done. " said fourth year communications student Maya Lee.V ' There is nothing in the world like that msfc. " But not all extreme sports included jumping out of a plane or chmbing up a mountain. Sports like surfing, wake boarding, and water skiing gave students enough m a challenge to satisfy them udthout me nauseating feehng of falling from 10,0( 0 feet. In Los Angeles, Bruins had the opportunity ' to participate in many different extreme sports. Students were even able to get their adrenaline fLxes on campus at tlie rock climbing wall located in the Wooden Center. In addition, there were mountains, deserts and beaches awaiting frenzied extreme athletes only a short car trip away.

Study habits ranged from the extreme, D0uncling out a week ' s worth of work in a single niriit session, to die mild, " I think I have a test tomorrow. " Various techniques were utihzed, and cajK-ine was often employed. Jessica Flores, a second ear psvcholog) ' major summed up her disciplined stud)- habits, " I got into a car accident one night and all I could think about while waiting for the tow tnick was all of the homework I had to do! " The opposite extreme was the technique of so-called " studying by osmosis. " This meant a student laid his or her head on top of the pertinent textbook and took a nap, absorbing the information by mere contact. And weren ' t our biology professors proud... Many students found that studying outside ot their dorm room or apartment provided a more stimulating atmosphere. One student chumed that the employees of Seattle ' s Best Coffee on Wilshire knew him not only by sight from the lengthy hours he spent studying there, but also by name. While some students found the quiet atmosphere at campus Ubraries like Powell or the YRL conducive to learning, many others were distracted by the tomb-like feel of a silent building. Going to class wasn ' t mandatory, and even became almost unnecessaiT with the advent of lecture notes. Of course, diis sentiment missed the whole point of having lecture notes, which was to allow the student to focus on lecture without having to worry about capturing every word.

Some faces, however, were more recognizable on campus than others. Either coaches or professors, UCLA had Its own share of celebrities... Professor Roger Bohman was one such professor. Students by the hundreds flocked every quarter to his Bio 30 and 40 classes. Because they fulfilled the General Education hfe sciences requirements, thousands of UCLA students have at one point had a class with Professor Bohman. His Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology 30 class (Bio 30) was a class devoted to cancer, including topics ranging from DNA to the emotional effects of the isease on the patients and people around them. His Bio 40 class dealt with the topic of AIDS and other STDs. Students often took both classes from Professor Bohman.

WHO ' S WHO 121 -Albert Carnesale: Bruinlife: What was i onr most memorable college expenence? Chancellor: Trving to embarrass me? (Laughs.) B: No, we have other questiom that will. (Laiiglis.) C: My most memorable college experience was the inteniew for admission for Cooper Union. It was highly competitive because it was free. I was appKing for mechanical engineering and I remember that f the professors what was inteiA-iewing me asked me why I wanted to study mechanical engineering. I said it was because I had a cousin who was a mechaim al engineer. He said, " Did you ever build things or take watches apart? " 1 said no. [He asked] " Did you e ' er build model airplanes? " I said es. He said, " With gasoline motors? " I Sciid no. He said, " You mean the kind that vou wnd up ' ith the propeller and it has a rubber band? " I said yes. He said, " Well did it fly? " I said, " Well, actualh no. While winding it up, it collapsed. " He laughed and I was admitted. My other is a shorter one. Because I studied engineering at that time, thcic •ere vew few women in engineering. One of the most memorable thigns I remember was j4- Professor Mar) ' Blade my sophomore year. I came in one day and A said " Professor Blade! You ' ie all dressed up today! " And she looked at me and said ", I ' m AO ' AYS dressed up. " (Laughs.) These are the two that come to mind imniediatel). ■ - _ B: How are the cJuillniges ijoti fared hi college different from uhat the graduates are facing today? C: Well the big differences is a much smaller proportion of the population went to college. When I was a yotmgster, I ' m sine it wasn ' t 20 percent of die graduates of high school who went on to some form of higher education. Today, that number is greater than two thirds. So, j it was just a much bigger comparatix e advantage, simply to have gone to college. We didn ' t have to worry so much about what we studied in terms of thinking tliis out. It ' s an asset for that first job. B: What extmcnrricular activities were ijou involved in while in C: I was one of the few people who worked 25 hours a week. jlWrked at Macy s all tlie time that I went to college. That certainly cut back [on my free time]. Most of m ' extraciuTicuIar actixities were more associated wit hdie neighborhood in whitli 1 lived, because I was commuted to college from the Bronx, where I had grown up. I didn t do a lot of things at school other than arri ing there in the morning and going to my classes. It was not a residential school. None of us lived on campus. There wasn ' t the .same device of extra-curricular activities. B: When you were a kid, what did yon want to be? C: When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up and have a job where you wore a white shirt and tie, made $100 a week, and enjo ' ed what you were doing. B: How is being a chancellor better than that? C: Well first of all, being a chancellor meets all those criteria. I ' m veiy happy being chancellor. I did not anticipate being an educator or a professor at the time. I was the first one in my family to go to college. I was more focused on entering the middle class, so to speak. It was only when I got a little bit older, diat I thought, well, being a scientist or an engineer was sometliing I would like to do because it was something I enjoyed in school and was reasonablv good at. I had no intentions of becoming a professor e en when I was in college or graduated from college. I went to w ork as an engineer when I got out of collegg. It was only when I ' d been out a little wlfjp that I became interested in learning more lor the sake of learning, B: Who did yon look up to and aiknirf as a child? i (;.• Actually in iii ' case, it was more my mother whq w« closest and who always encouraged me most. She told me that: 1 could do whatever I wanted to do and took pride in any accomplishment I had no matter how small. B: Who do you admire now? C: Its not a single person, it ' s a vast range of people. First ot all, I adnaire most now people who have really dedicated tiiemselves to helmothers. I still admire people who have accomplislipd a great deal. But those who have really dedicated their lives unselfishly and without regards to how much praise, or income, or status... When they are truly capable of doing that, those are the ones I admire the most. B: How do you find time for recreational activities on top of everything and your busy schedule? ' Ci Well, it ' s a veiy good question, Unfortunately, the answer is, it ' s very ' : difficult. There isn ' t a great deal of time for recreation and ) ' et, the " only way you have any is to make sure you set aside some time. I ' m not as good at that as I should be. The other thing to add immediatel) ' to that is diat most of the res[)onsibilities 1 have as eliancellor aie eiijn able things to do. For example, most of mv evenings are spent on unixersit) ' business. Thev tend to be with intere,sting people — faenitv, students, ahunni, donors, peopk ' who care about UCL.V. and constituencies in the city. Man of the things that I do as part of my job, others would consider to be recreation. That is like going to a wonderful dinner ]iart tn- ' j;()ing to an opening at the Ceffen Theater, That I do partly because i am on theboard of tlirectors of the Gefien as Chancellor But also, it ' s hard to complain about going to the openings at the Geffen. I want to cKfferentiate the definition ol recreation. It doesn ' t work so i well. If you mean by private ■ time, that has no universit)- connection, that ' s the hardest part »lif niitl just ol ' p .h £1 ■BV !lir| oft inti ml «lie llol enjo U C:l gilu III 122 STUDENT LIFE Behind the Suir ie -• w part, rhere isn ' t a gr eat deal of time for that. 1 try to fiml some and when 1 do that, I am more prone to make it an e eninjj; of reallx doing nodiing, or close to it. It eonlil be ha ing dinner, going to a mo ie, or jnst sometliing tliat realK ' is private time, as opposed to a large group of people. B: How do i oii perceive yourself? C: Extraordinarih " fortunate... My life has been so much richer dian in ' expectations e er were that it ' s really been quite remarkable. I consider nnself en- blessed in terms of the responsibilities I ' ve had, e people I ' ve gotten to know, and work widi, and had as friends. All of those things were absolutely unandcipated. Perhaps die best indication of it ' as, I remember, once when I was in ited to go to a conference in Eiuope. I was ;xll excited and my son said to me, " Dad, when are ou going to stop getting excited about things like this ' ? " And I told him that I hope ne er. And so far the answer is still never. I just enjo - these opportunities and am grateful for them. B: How do you think other people pereeive you? C: The answer depends on how well they know me, because the nature of mv job is that I haxe contact with large numbers of people but I don ' t actualh ' get to kmow diem personally. And they don ' t get to know nie. Their perception of me is based more on the official actions I might take than it is on anything about me personally. So again, it depends on who you ask, whether you ' re talking about people who hio ' me well, or if x ' ou ' re really asking me not how 7 am perceived but how is the chancellor perceived. Those would be two veiy different answers. ffTHotf do you want other people to perceive you? C: Again it depends on what group of people you ' re talking about. If pu xv ' ere going to sa m - role as chancellor, which is the one I assume lu ' re interested in, I would hope diat they would see me as caring iabout the UCLA fciniiK and about the people wko make up this wonderful institution. Also, as tning to do my best to sene them and to make their affiliation witli UCIj. all the more positive and beneficial to tiiem. I hope thc will also sec me as someone who is enjoying himself, and reaUy does take pride in tlie institution and pleasure in being able to sen-e it. B: Wliat is your pet peeve? C: Pet peeve. Let me twist it jnst a little bit. I am compulsive. I am one of those people [who v ' antsj e ( ' i- thing in place. My pet peeves are almost alwa " s or tend to be quite iiiiiior and insignificant. When things are not in order in my Me. I tend to get distracted. B: What fictional character do you think you tnost resenibl C: Janies Bond B: (Laughs) Why- C: Miy not ' ?!! (More laughs.) B: What do you hope people will say about you once you completed lace than it would have been had he not ' i our clunwillnmhipr, C: That UC:LA is been chancellor. 15: What is the most (oniiium topic thai iiou discuss nith tiour students in i our office li s? w K- C: The l)iggcst suqirise abouCTriat is most people think that when students comedo office hour it ' s because tlic ' have something to complain about. It turns onl. thats not true. The majorih ' or students who come to my office hours, cj B ' siniply because die) ' d like to meet me, they ' re happy about UClJI nd they would just like to chat about things and it gives me wonderful opportunities. ' What I most often talk about are the responses to c[uestions, ' " What you like least, and what ou like most, about UCLA? " And what you diink might be able to do to make it ever better. It is remai-kable how small the percentage of students who come Iwcause they have some personal thing that they want to talk to die chancellor about. B: What do you expect will be some changes, such as in technology, that will shape UCLA ' s future? C: I think there will be a substantial reduction, for example, in eiy large lecture courses. It wont go away completely — there ' s still a difference between ha ing a person there iOj the nature of commimication, than there is watching the tape on ideo. Its certainly changing the way we do research. If you ask any faciilt i nember who ' s involved in collaboration with colleagues, there ' s a good chance that one of them won ' t even be on his continent, let alone, not down the hall. It ' s affecting that as well as the enormous amounts of data that we can handle. It will substantially extentl our senice to the commimity and elsewhere because the sources and information are so much more readily accessible. There ' s no doubt in my mind that diere will still be a place for i qgJOTjesearch imiversities like UCLA. Because we do all three in an integrated wa . students like xon are involved not only in the teaching and learning process, but also in the reseai-ch process and also in the semce process. Because they ' re integrated, it requires that we bring the peojile tog( ther for the interactions. I believe it will change the way v e do things, but it won ' t change what we do. B: Okay, one last ijucstion. Chancellor, and we reniind you that you don ' t have to ansircr this if you don ' t want to: boxers or briefs? C: You tend to be more embanassed than 1 am about this.

However, nothing could prepare the wide-e ed freshmen for v hat they wouki hit upon reaching Bruin Walk; politics, religion and activist groups all intent on conxeyiug dieir message. Even though activism of all types was prevalent on campus, college can be a bubble; it was ea.s - for students to remain focused on their own worlds and issues and avoid any contact with the outside world. However, the activism of many students on campus was proof that this bubble was easily popped. With dozens oi passionate students lobb iug to sa ' e die Ciilifornia coastline, free unfairly jailed men, or to vote for a particular USAC candidate, it was difficult to keep one ' s eves closed and not become involved in at leiLst one or two organizations or causes. At an activism-hub like UCLA, it seemed absurd to us that at one time women were not allowed to enroll as students, or that minorities were forbidden entrance to the countiy. However, in realit}-, these issues reniiiined a focus of debate on campus, albeit in an altered form. Segregation no longer e.xisted in its original state, but diversity arguably remained the central issue on campus. SimilarK; women ' s studies remained an important part of the curriculum, designed to empower the " weaker " sex. It seemed that Bruin Life Yearboolc 1976 Students in 1976 rally for non- discrimination by the UCPD in a peaceful protest. Today, race issues still surround issues on campus and in the community in general. in the 81 years of UCLA ' s history, it was the same issues that keep popping up, demanding our attention and energy to create a more perlect world. One oi ' the most highly publicized political events at UCLA this ear was Al Core ' s Uth hour campaign trip to Westwtiod. Democrats flocked to rally support for dieir candidate, while faithful Republicans were not far behind, carrying Bush posters and chanting for their chosen canditlate. " The atmosphere at the rally was intense, " stated Robyn Coldfarb, a second year pohHcal science student. " It was one of the more riveting and relevant issues that was addressed all year on campus. " Other major issues on campus included the public request of many students tor the Regents to repeal SP-1 and SP-2. These were bills that took away the practice of affirmadve action on UC campuses, and many Bniins were angered by this decision. MEChA provided a poignant display of sadness and protest against the thousands killed while crossing borders with white crosses on Bruin Walk on el Dia de los Muertos. The welfare of poor Iraqi children was also an issue that consumed many UCLA students. Wliatever the cause, whoever the group - activists could always find a haven on campus to fight for what they thought was right.

Ackerrndn met students ' needs By Hellen Lee iiipipj?r A fter a long morning of frantic dressing and extensive lectures, life slows dowai just in time for lunch. You headed to Ackerman to make the iMggest decision ofxour da -: what to eat tor lunch. You snuck a peak into a dim but li eh ' Cooperage, where pizzas, chicken, salads, and Krispy Kreme donuts stood with great temptation. You decided against it and headed on upstairs to the loud and bustling enxironment of The Terrace Food Courts. Panda Express and Wetzel ' s Pretzel stole a couple hungr y glances from vou, but ' ou headed straight to where oiu- pasta-cra ing nose led ou. You breeze through the hiirly long crowds and finall)- ordered your slice of Italy. But before you sat down and bite into that deiiciousK- baked egetable pizza from La Cucina, take time out to reminisce on what Ackerman was like a couple ears ago. If ' ou were a first or second year student, xour memon was blank, and for the third, foiuth, and fifth ear Bruins, what Ackerman used to be, might still be just a ague memory. But in case you ha e forgotten, Rubio ' s and La Cucina were new additions to the food coiut, with Rubio ' s opening in fall of 1998 and La Cucina ani ing in 1999. Preceding both restaurants was an old cafeteria hv the name of the Treehouse. The Treehouse was in humble Bniin senice for almost four decades! After years of dishing it out. The Treehouse became outdated and unable to keep up with the demands of the ever changing public. After nniltiple sun evs performed b - the food senice departments, it was ob ious that tlie UC ' LA student bod " hungered for some fresh Mexican food and saxoiy Itahan pasta. Like magic, the demands of the puiilic were met immediately by the UCLA powers that be, and Rubio ' s and La Cucina were brought to Ackerman. In this same mannei-. Tsunami and Krisp Kreme appeared to meet the diverse demaiuls of our school. Tsunami arrived in 1999 to provide us with the foreign tastes of sushi and other Asian delicacies. It was also the replacement for a coffee shop by the name of the ' iewpoint. This coffee shop was not as popular with the UCLA students, and so it was replaced by the more exotic and enticing Tsunami. Mouth-watering Krispy Kreme donuts were also brought to campus by ASUCLA in response to Bmin demands. Without having to travel many miles for this deepl)- coveted donut, students could enjoy them right on campus. Along with these new renovations, Mobv Discs joined our entourage of new additions. According to recent sun eys, a nuisic merciiandise store was in iiigh demand. With this information, Papercuts stationan- store was replaced with Moby Discs.

(Jas was heconiing more exjDensive In tin ' week and the demand lor it wasn ' t slowing down. This gas crisis was not onK a problem for UCLA students, but for the entire connnunit , and the nation as whole. Millions of Americans shelled out more cash for gas and were forced to tn and limit driving time as problems in the Middle East and conflict o er oil management drove prices sky high. One student, who spent the ear abroard last year, was unpleasantK ' siuprised by the incredible increase in the cost of fuel during her time abroad. Fourth )ear Spanish student Kristin Brett remarked, " 1 couldn ' t believe it when I came home after being | (20M 161 1 t 1)G G Q gone for a year and had to pay $2.17 for a gallon of gas!

" Her surprise at the high cost of gas was a students and drivers in the LA communitv and across the nation. Because the production of oil was decreasing due to the overuse of this precious natural resource and because oil control was in the hands of a few tumulous foreign countries, Americans did not have much say in the control of gas prices. In the last 2i17 TOY a ClC IIOH twentv ' years, more and more people have begun to drive automobiles and as the number of cars on the road increased, so did the demands for oil. As a result of this gradual shortage of gas, public avvait-ness about the environment grew as did the need for new and more efficient transportation. Alternative natural fuels needed to be researched and the older models of cars needed to be replaced with newer, more gas efficient ones. If more cars were made to use gas in an economical way, gas consumption would decrease and the limited natural resource, presened. While solutions to these growing problems were being researched, the rapid gas consumption in America anil the resulting exorbitant prices charged to fill up continued to plague motorists. In an effort to tr ' relieve Americans of the strain on their pocketbooks and preserve the small oil supply available, officials issued recommendations for ways to conseive gas. Their suggestions were to maintain a constant speed limit, to use cniise control, and to use over drive gears. By heeding this advise, car owners were able to consene their gas and save a few bucks in the pi ' ocess. When purchasing gas, customers were charged according to the " volume of measurement. " Because gas pumps measvuv volumes of gas and not densities of fuel concentration, the ideal times to purchase gas were during early mornings and late evenings when gas was the densest. Although these penny saving ideas were helpful to some, for many of us stamng students, the best idea was to just leave our cars at home and take advantage of public transportation. Bniins got around by riding the Big Blue Bus, which was free for the first time this year, with the swipe of their Bruin Card. The bus took students all cner the Westwood and Santa Monica area which not only allowed Bmins without cars an efficient mode of transportation but also contributed to the preservation of gas. Nevertheless, Los Angelenos were citizens who kne their cars and despite the city ' s effort to encourage the use of public transportation in addition to caq ooling and ride sharing, many people continued to pa to ridiculous prices for gas rather than part with their precious wheels. The high cost of gas was a serious problem for LA drivers, who .spend their lives in their cars. Even beyond the LA community, the gas crisis touched commuters and car owaiers all over the countn- as it cost more and more each week to fill up their tanks. All Americans faced this financial burden and had to learn how to conserve their gas and save a little dough at the same time. of qa5 Ga5 prices hosie def v e gotten OMt of controi, " - Kristm Brett 4t(i L ear GAS PRICES 133 Still smokin ' after all these years By Jennifer Bayerd e years ■ There was an abundance of student smokers on campus, second in number perhaps only to the squirrels. The year 2000, and cigarettes were still plentiful and smokers still clueless despite all of the hiowledge and information forced down our throats growing up. The dangers of smoking, even of second-hand smoke were widely kiiown, vet people still fought for their right to pollute their owm bodies. Ironic, wasn ' t it, in the face of LA " s smogg) ' skies? The problem with smoking on campus was that it affected all those aroimd the smoker.

Some used it as a stress reducer, beliexdng that it calmed them dowai and reduced anxiety levels. Others fell victim to conformity. So many people in Los Angeles smoke, that sometimes students started smoking as well, just to be a part of the group, only to eventually get addicted. It wasn ' t just tobacco being smoked, either. Reefer Madness also flourished, although still not as common as cigarette smokers on campus. Mary Jane remained as popular with students as in her hey-day of Dazed and Confused. Despite the manv warnings of our youth, many students still felt it necessary to partake in dangerous trends. Still, if you feel an addiction was necessary, my recommendation is coffee...

Billboards, magazine covers, television shows, and even the evening news were constantly featuring the latest female celebrit) ' looking incredible. Slim bodies, tanned skin, deep blue eyes and perfectly stsled blonde hair were everyday sights for Los Angeles residents. Of course we ;ill knew that this was the result of a personal trainer, an expensive stylist, a professional makeup artist, and state-of-the-art airbrushing, vet for many Bruins, images such as diese were often painful. Many males and females spent every day at die Wooden Center working out to achieve that elusive perfect body. For women, this meant slim and toned while the men attempted to attain firmness by hfting an unlimited number of weights. Sure it was good for the bodv to work out; it was essential to being a healthv ' person. With time restraints and frustration about the dreaded " freshman L5 " , many students changed their eating habits in order to lose weight. Leaving home in general often resulted in a change in diet. Students no longer had their parents preparing nutritious and well- balanced meals for diem even- night; dorm life changed this. Students were seived meals diat, at first, seemed great: pizza, fries, grilled cheese, and other options were offered everv ' day. These options grew old rather quickly and students fell into unhealthy patterns. Third V ear sociologj- student C.laire Wendt said, " eating habits change because people have more freedom and choice in what tliev eat. They might be pick-y though, and eat the same foods all the time, getting little nutrition. " However, urban mvths that cleiimed even the salad was starched and bagels were glazed secretly prevented manv from even attempting to eat these seeminglv healthy foods. Research showed that certain t) ' pes of dieting were detrimental to the bod); possibly even as harmful as other eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. In addition to the physical effects like decreased metabolism and loss of lean body mass, die emotional effects were present also. Ranging from depression and mood swings to social withdrawal, these signs could hopefully be recognized by friends before the problem got out of control. Unfortunately, if not discovered, these disorders could lead to further deterioration and even death. Anorexia and bulimia, two of the most prominent eating disorders, affected mostly women, though a smaller percentage were men as well. Often afflicting middle and upper-middle class young women, these disorders can be caused by pressure to look good and fit in with society ' s standard of beauty. Especially in Los Angeles, the glamour capital of the United States, thin was in and beauty was defined by a small group of touched-up supermodels. Help was and is always out diere for people who have trouble dealing widi eating disorders, though, where they learned that tnie beautv ' does not come from conforming to unrealistic ideals.

There were times when we woke up in the moming, and just wanted to get a breath of fresh air Instead, we ended up breathing the d r polluted smog wiiich greeted us exei;) ' morning with the sun. The smog problem was just one of many pollution problems we Los Angelenos faced everyday. Through se ' eral go emmental measures, air, water, and land pollution officials tried their best to impro ' e our planet, our cit ' , our community, and our lives. There were hefty fines that penahzed anyone who Uttered, or contributed to die pollution problem in any way. But how stubborn we still were, we wouldn ' t listen!

" UCLA students ' awareness about environmental issues and air pollution was ver) ' up to date, thanks to the continuing efforts of environmental groups on campus, such as CALPIRG and Greenpeace. These groups frequenth ' visited classrooms around campus to advertise beach clean ups and fundniisers open to all students. They also frequented Bruin Walk where students could sign up at their tables and volunteer their time to help preserve the environment. In addition, students were further educated about pollution through classes like Atmospheric Sciences 2 and 3. Because these classes fulfilled General Education requirements for Life Sciences, many students were exposed to this very pertinent information (we do Uve in LA after ail) and learned a great deal about air pollution in our citv and all over the world. Professors Lew, Cassmassi, and Lyons instructed classes which covered such sul)jects as the individual sources of air pollution and its global affects as well as general causes of air pollution and " proposed methods and status of its modification. " These classes, taken by so many UCLA students, helped educate and inform the student body about the serious problem of ;iir pollution and the small steps students as individuals could take to help stop it. Indeed, students at UCLA dealt with environmental issues in different ways, just as we all had differing opinions on how to fix it. As our city gre w larger and larger we had to buckle down on our usage of materials that were to.xic to our earth. If not, we would have been partially responsible for destroying the environment for the next generation. Through classes and on campus organizations, students learned a great deal about the causes and consequences of pollution.

Couples faced discrimination and prejudice not only from society as a whole, but from other members of their own racial groups as well. Interracial couples struggled with problems that others didn ' t even think about. Coming from different racial backgrounds, oftentimes these couples had to deal with disapproving parents who felt that their children would be better off with someone of their own race or culture. People in interracial relationships frequently felt isolated and ostracized from their own racial group, from society, and even from their own families. The obstacles and difficulties they had to face were formidable at best and the lack of support these couples found, only made their situations harder Couples involved in these partnerships also laced discrimination from the opposite sex within their own races. For example, a woman involved with a man of a different race or culture might find that the men in her own race disapproved of her decision to date an ' outsider ' While some might view this attitude as prejudiced, others simph ' saw it as an important means R0C 0[ A6YY 0y ' 6 of m;iintaining their racial or cultural heritage. So whv persist with these seemingly impossible relationships you ask? Well, love was a strong motivation to make things work. In addition, many UCLA students involved in interracial or intercultural relationships hoped that the increasing tolerance for racial and cultural diversity would encourage people to understand and accept the situations of tlie couples. " I don ' t really think that people at UCLA look at interracial relationships in a negative light because it ' s such a diverse campus. If anything, I think we promote diversity rather than discourage it, " said fourth year English student Tinnetta Rockquemore of ' mixed ' couples at UCLA. This seemed to be the general consensus on campus as students felt that UCLA was relatively tolerant emironment for couples of different races or cultures. Couples of mixed backgrounds certainly felt the pressure of society to conform and date within their own races or cultures. However, UCLA, with its encouraging and supportive student body seemed to be safe haven for the otherwise discriminated against lovers. Although interracial and intercultural relationships remained a controversial issue in today ' s society, most Bruins supported this group and served as an unbiased environment where students of all races could interact and date as they pleased. - TinKietta AemDre EKigli5(n 4t( year 142 ISSUES Sangtip Chiendpradap On a diverse UCLA campus, this interracial couple meets for the first time.

Was it a major problem for UCLA students? When asked if she thought UCLA students as a whole practiced safe sex, Rob n Brandmeyer, a fourth ' ear history- student said, " Yes, it seems like there is enough information out there, I don ' t see why they shouldn ' t. " Bruins, along with the rest of the country, were indeed bombarded with achertisements of everjiliing from birth control pills to condoms. Professor Roger Bohman taught the Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology 40 class, a class that focused on AIDS and odier sexually transmitted diseases. He hoped that by teaching the class he could " minimize the number of students who will contract diseases. I infonn them of risk factors so they can be responsibly sexually active. " Oe of his goals in teaching the class was to spread information about the diseases by word of mouth. ' ith o er 400 students in each of his classes. Professor Bohman was certain that precautionary data was getting out to the UCLA community. With so much talk about AIDS and HIN ' people were nowadays more careful when choosing their sexual partners. Discussion about sexual education began its implementation at elementary and junior high school levels. Some People disagreed, ho ' e -er, about when instruction should begin. Many parents did not want their children taught about sex at too ' oung of an age. Most UCLA students did receive " sex ed " at some point during their earh ' schooling. Most of them were at first separated into groups, boys went to one room and girls went to another. Fast forward ten ears and it seemed Professor Bohman was giving us a refresher course in Bio 40. Another issue that future Bioiins and their parents were faced with was condom distribution at their schools. Many were opposed to junior high and high school students ha ing condoms readil - a ' ailable at the school because thev felt this promoted sex. Others thought that it might ser ' e its purpose as a method of pre ' enting unsafe sex and pregnancy. Few people were willing to admit if they were infected wth some t} ' pe of STD, but if the statistics were correct, one in four people will be at some point during their lives. Needless to sav, many were already infected and according to reports, many more will be in the next several years. So what can we do to prevent the further spread of AIDS and other infectious sexTiallv transmitted diseases? Education and behavior modification were our only true weapons against these devastating diseases. In addition, by targeting college students and college campuses for sex education, the information got to one of the most sexually active age groups. Students who were aware of the dangers of STDs and the consequences of contracting them, were more likely to take precautions against unsafe sex and therein protect themselves from these diseases. Awareness was definitely out there; clearly some people just remained unwilling to behave responsibly. Many claimed that " in the heat of the moment, " putting on a condom was the last thing they were thinking about. However, commercials and advertisements for Trojan and Lifestyles condoms addressed this issue and tried to glamorize the use of condoms while at the same time promoting the safets ' provided by the effective use of these prophylactics. Studies show that if used correctly, condoms can decrease the risk of contracting AIDS and other STDs by 60-90%. With such a encouraging number, it was difficult to understand why people continue to ignore the benefits of safe sex. Although information and education about STDs has caused the number of new incidences to decrease in the last few years, the AIDS epidemic and the spread of STDs was still a very prevalent problem in American society and around the world. We can only hope that the continued research about these diseases will soon offer a cure and that in the meantime, people use discretion and safety in their sexual activities.

Have those Jews for Jesus supporters and the angiy old men preaching about fire and brimstone and the temptations of the world gone too far? Some felt that thev definitelv had. Although actiNism on campus was an important part of Bmin daily life and did, without a doubt contribute to the diverse interests and concerns of the student body, there were times crivism m when non-biased students felt uncomfortable with the extremism of these active groups. Did they really need to stand in front of Wooden with those big signs and yell at passer-bys?

By Jennifer Bayerd k AfA We were all familiar with the traditional definition of sexual harassment, usualh ' peipetrated by a man against a woman. But times they were a-changing, and equal rights began to spread to the right to be harassed. Many women recall with a laugh, their cnishes on North Campus male professors. Danielle Furman a fourth vear English student states " I call it Professor goggles when all of a sudden )()ur professor is attractive — its the intelligence of his lectures, and his interpretation of the literature that ' s attractive. " Interestingl) ' enough, the intelligence of the professors seemed to be the catalyst for these crushes, as students were inspired by the lectures. And it probabh ' was not ftur to call this " harassment " as the professors imdoubtedly were never even aware that these cnishes existed. This was not to make light of a serious problem. The threat of sexual xdolence against women remained frighteningly real. Many students relied on Campus Shuttles and Evening Vans for a safe ride home in the dark after evening classes or a late night stud ing at Powell. Memories of the string of attempted rapes on campus just Uvo ears ago remained fresh in the minds of many female students, and in the minds of chivalrous male students, who insisted on wiilking women home from both bars and classes. Lots 2 and 3 were haunted this year by a man who would follow single women to their car and grab them — touching their breast or even grabbing them in between their legs. While no further violence was pursued b - the culprit, his presence was felt and feared b ' women on campus. E en men this year were accosted. One anon ' mous male student recalls with disbelief tlie time he was watched by a stranger in the restroom. In addition, the threat of sexual assault on campus increased in January as an assailant haimted se ' eral public restrooms on campus. Two women were assaulted by the same suspect in restrooms in both Schoenburg Hall and Boelter Hall. The first victim was approached from behind while at the sink. The suspect covered her moudi, direatened her, then sexu;illy assaulted her before fleeing the room. The second victim was similarly confronted in the restroom at the sink. The suspect forced her to lie down on the floor and threatened her, but she was fortunately able to persuade him to leave. Computerized composites of the suspect soon after appeared on the doors of every women ' s restroom, and UCPD increased foot patrols all over campus. Despite the many cautionary ' steps taken bv ' the Police Department, women on campus, in general, felt extremely threatened by such blatant assaults. Without a doubt, the iolence of these incidents left Bruins shocked and concerned for months. While many students felt a false sense of safety in living among peers, it was important to remember that college campuses were a magnet for the world ' s " sickos. " For this reason, UCLA took great pains to try and secure a safe campus for students, providing CSOs for walks home, as well as the Evening " Vans.

Having gone to one of tlie nations preeminent institutions of academia we felt a sense of prestige and self worth. However this prestige, as all great things tlo, came with a heftv price. For those of us who were not fortunate enough to get grants, scholarship mone) ' , or substantial financial aid, we were left at graduation with a large sum to pay. In addition to all our debts, the University of California Regents decided to raise the price of tuition. It was already difficult enough to manage pa)ing tuition. B)- raising the cost of education, it made affording an education near to impossible for many. UCLu was a diverse school with people of various economic backgrounds. Some students came from affluent families, where paying five to si.x thousand dollars a year for tuition was not a problem. Some could easilv afford room and board fees with a complete meal plan. For many others, however, paying money for an education was hard and bv increasing the price, their goals of finishing school and getting a diploma became ;rlmost unreachable. Many students were not even aware of where all this money was going. We certLunl)- did not need any more construction and we knew the Regents were not going to fLx the j. i.AQ n c h.)(r r- parking problem. So why did we have to pay more? The increase in the price of tuition ' created controversy throughout the entire UC education system as students wondered CUff .e ffC)W lOW about the reasoning behind this change. Were die regents doing this to trim down the inflax of the number of incoming students or were their intentions different? Was it fair or unhur to raise the price of tuition without letting students know where the money was going? These were puzzling questions for many students. Several protests were organized to attack this problem and represent the opinions of the students. It seemed to manv, that raising the cost of education benefited only the Board of Education itself Joseph Tugui a second year sociology student said, " the rise in the cost of education has a severe effect on the students who come from low-income backgrounds. Paving for an education becomes so expensive that this raise could have negative results. Students have to start looking for jobs, work 30 to 40 hours a week, and carry full course work load over the quarter as well. This makes it hard for many students trving to get an education. They have to sacrifice way too much to get a degree. After a while, they see getting an education and graduating as unattainable goals. " Other students had a more positive, but precautions outlook on rmsing the price of education. Paloma Pino, a first year mathematics students said, " while I have not had a chance to review the schools budget and see where the increase is justified, I think that a periodic increase to adjust for inflation or certain major investments is reasonable. But. I think that students should have some input in deciding where increasing would be justified and on which projects tcj institute. " Despite the vaning views on the raise, the general feeling among students was that by increasing tuition, the Regents not onl)- discouraged many lower income families from sending their kids to college, but also prevented many students iJready in school from finishing. What happened to the idea that the education of America was more important than money in the pocket? Although increases in the cost of higher education was a nation;il phenomenon, it was still difficult for students to accept this raise in tuition and to pay for it. Students everywhere were discouraged at the thought of having to shell out even more cash to get their degrees. Getting an education at UCLA came with a prettv ' high price tag, and although it may have been justified, it did not make the load on students any lighter. 05ep(i Ti igi ii Sociologi) 2Kid L ear RISING COST OF EDUCATION 151 The confrioversiql websit e known as Napster illicited varying ' re s from stude mm%m By Erik F During the advanced technological age we spent in school many of us spent a great deal of time on the computer. We surfed the net to find the hottest websites and searched online sources for research and information. There was one website in particular that attracted thousands of students and web surfers alike-Napster. Offering free downloads of MP3s of well-known music artists, this was one of the most popular and controversial sites on the web. As we downloaded songs from our favorite artists, some of us kept the music on our hard drives or stored it on a compact disc. This turned out to be very convenient for students who just wanted to hear music before buying an album. But some of us ou used it to take advantage of the free music by dovmloading a whole music album. This caused extreme controvers y between music artists who were determined to terminate Napster and its endless supply of free music, and those who supported the Napster service. UCLA students had varying opinions on this somewhat controversial issue. We asked four students during the 2000-01 year to give their opinions on Napster and where they thought this computerized controversy would end. While some strongly supported Napster and its sendees, others felt that the website was immoral and its use, unjust.

Parking was not just a transportation issue on campus, it was the issue on campus. Parking was a problem because it was completeh ' non-existent. As residents of W ' estwood, we paid exorbitant amounts of mone - in rent and vet we still had no parking spot to call our own. The problem was exacerbated bv the blood thirst ' parking enforcement vultiu-es, who delighted in ticketing the miwan ' or the forgetful.

How could the authorities not ha ' e I ' aised an evebrow to see hundreds of students who claimed to commute from San Diego every day? Parking was so scarce that such " little white lies " were mandator ' in order to get the opportunity ' to pay hundreds of dollars a year just for the pri ilege of parking within a mile of campus. One way of easing the transportation problem by the school was to demolish the parking lot bv Yoimg Dri e. 3rd [AGGf Thanks. Then, as if to compensate, UCLA worked out a deal with Santa Monica ' s Big Blue Bus system, to pro ide it as a free service to bearers of Bniin Cards. Previously costing a mere $0.50, this was not realh ' that momentous an occasion. However, as they say, even ' little bit helps. The Big Blue Bus did provide an opening to new opportimities to students without cars, however, with easy trips to Third Street Promenade, Centur} ' Cih ' , and the beach. As an added bonus, the drivers were also very friendly, and never hesitated to point out the proper bus routes should a student get lost (not that I ever did...). Another method of transportation utilized by students was Campus E.xpress which shuttled students around campus and to Lots 31 and 32. ' hile these shuttles were mostly for convenience as all stops were within walking distance, they didn ' t iilleviate parking troubles, although they chd make for happier, and lazier students. The Evening Vans, added an element of safet) ' on campus, as they provided for a safe ride home in the dark after evening classes. Although many students griped about the problems with transportation around campus and ' estv ood, others found wavs around them, such as walking to class or taking the bus. And just about evenone was relatively satisfied with the convenience of the Campus shuttles, as thev were free and accessible to eveiyone.

Prospecti -e freshman and transfer students had to meet certiiin criteria to be accepted to the unixersiU ' . The freshman applicant had to go through an academic review which included an e ;iluation of the academic grade point average, and performances on standardized tests like the SAT and SAT II subject exams. The performance in honors and ad ance placement college comses, the strength of the senior year program, the qualit ' , quantity; and level of coursework throughout the entire high school program, and the strength of the program taken within the context of the high school attended were all taken into consideration. Many of the entering freshman applicants had GPAs above a 4.0 because UC-recognized honors. International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, and college courses received extra grade points. After sur i ing an academic re iew came the comprehensive review. The personal i i i ' statement was an integral part of the application process. This part of the application CALLLylLU 0 Y L ga e students the opportunity to open themsehes up and to share their personal perspectives on their owni understanding of who the) ' were within the context of their community, family, and the rest of the world. Outside factors could eidier enhance students ' academic excellence or show the obstacles students overcame to achieve academic success. This personal perspective gave admissions counselors the opportunity to see die students as people rather than just numbers. Entering transfer students also had a competitive application review process. Transfers needed to have junior class level standing, a GPA of 3.0 or above in transferable courses, and show progress toward completion of major preparation classes. All these requirements were considered under the academic criteria portion. Personal criteria and circumstances were also considered in the transfer application review process. UCLA admissions took into account things like full and part-time employment, family responsibihties, involvement in clubs and or organizations and personal hardships. Admissions had a difficult time in deciding on which of the many talented students that applied to UCLA would actuallv be allowed to become a part of the Bruin community. UCLA was one of the most popular school in the nation for the third straight year. There were 37,000 applicants for the 4,200 places in the incoming class of Fall of 2000. No wonder it was so hard to get in! . ' Vldiough the admissions process was a trving one, students could take pride in the fact that their applications excelled above the rest. After considering the many factors that involved in acceptance, the office of admissions determined which students it was going to accept.

Fall 2()()0 marked the FDA approxal of RUD40, the so-called abortion pill. It had been available in Europe for a number ot years, and its arrival in the United States was met by mixed reviews. Many praised its availabilibi ' as another way for women to be in control of their bodies, while the dnigs critics charged that it would be abused as a form of birth control. Novembers presidential election was also an arena for abortion issues. As it usually happened, the Republican candidate George W. Bush was pro-li fe, while his opponent Al Gore, a Democrat was pro-choice. Man ' people based who they were voting tor on this issue. Many people who were pro-life chose to be this way for religious reasons. One of the major topics in olved in abortion was the arginnent surroimding the life, or lack thereof of the fetus. While some argue that the fetus was not a life because it cannot sui " vive on its own outside the womb, other vehementK ' beheve that a heartbeat equaled life.

During our time in school, we faced several political issues. One of those issues was the elimination of Affirmative Action. This was a system in where minorities and women were given an equal chance in entering a institution of higher learning such as UCLA. It was a measure that not onl - helped students of a lower disadvantage get in but it also made the " diversity " of the institution a lot broader and better. UCLA and many universities around the nation exercised this measure in order for it to have a good reputation as a imiversity. With such progress, Affirmati e Action still had its disadvantages. What Affirmative Action did was reject the admission of many students representing the majority who sustained excellent grades and SAT scores. Th ey were not admitted into UC schools while other student who might not have had the proper qualifications were admitted in order to better the schools o erall diversity- ' . As in any other conflict, there were protests all around schools about Affirmative Action. One side denounced it and the other supported it. Evei ' ything came douai to a democratic vote. During election month, the Affirniatixe Action measure was eliminated and there was Ndsible anger, turmoil, and unrest in our student body. Walter Meza, a fourth year psychology student s;iid, " As a minority, I believe that affirmative action affects most the oppressed in our society. This oppression therefore leads to insecurity in our (hispanic) people. Students who are admitted on the basis of Affirmative Action, feel somehow displaced. Many minorities such as Hispanics entered UCLA and not excel, mainly because they are not well prepared to handle the accelerated and rigorous academics. When we get objectified like [being incompetent], we form raciiil groups and follow lines of more oppression making look inxisible. " During the presidential campaign, there were several issues brought up regarding education and getting jobs as well. Measures to impro ' e the educational admission system were not taken seriously by man ' . Kane Hayashi, a third year geology major said, " I dont think the reinforcement of affirmative action will change the situation in our socieh ' because it is sustained b ' the few dominating power that manipulates our society only for dieir benefit without [us] being aware of it. " The reinforcement and eUmination impacted our student body in unique ways each taking it differently. Ranion Enriquez, a third year political science major gave his thoughts; " I think the end of affirmative action will have a negative effect on campus diversity and long term effects on minority groups. Without affirmative action, the voices of those groups can not be expressed and we, as students in general, lose out on the diversity of ideas. Affirmative action simply tried to ' level the pla ing field " by encouraging groups that were historiciilly under-represented.

Similariy Mahu existed to cater to the needs of the Asian Pacific LGBT students and communit)-. Their programs consisted of weekh- rap sessions, youth conferences, workshops, karaoke, and bonfires.

Ten Percent, the name of the magazine, was a mystical number derived from a study done in the 19.50 ' s. It boldly declared that a suqmsing ten-percent of the population was either gay or lesbian.

S3 ive recall of Firestone tires causa serious problems for Ford Explorer owners By J UV VUV Wm nne In response to heightened unease over the safety of Firestone tires, the company in the summer of 2000 recalled 6.5 million tires of the line typically found on Ford Explorers. Both Ford and Firestone were held accountable for the recall. In -estigators found mounting evidence that Firestone tires had a higher tendenc) ' for tire tread separation, which could make the tire explode and cause an accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration compiled a total of 88 traffic deaths at the time of the recall. Explorer owners by the hundreds of thousands put themseK ' es on the waiting list for tire replacements. Most of the recalled tires were manufactured in Firestone ' s Decatur, Illinois Plant. In its own defense, Firestone stud that the lower-than-suggested air pressure Ford recommended for the Ford Explorer tires (26 psi), may have contributed to the accidents. Eventually, records revealed that Ford had already been worried about the safeh ' of the Explorer due to tlie instability of the car ' s design in relation to its tires. In the end. Ford decided to end its contract with Firestone and sign a new one with Michelin ' s ATX tire.

People all over California were faced with electricit) ' bills that were between 200 and 400 percent higher than their normal bills and the threat of blackouts looming ahead in the not so distant future. Suddenly what seemed like a problem for the power companies became an enormous threat to their consumers. How this crisis began and how it got so out of control, was the question on the minds of many Califomians. A brochure published on the internet by Southern California Edison, one of the power companies most affected by the crisis in Southern California, described the problem as stemming from the fact that California uses natural gas, a fuel which is much more expensixe than the low-sulfur fuel oil or coal used in other states. They also contributed much of the problem to the fact that citizens were against the idea of building new power plants and their complaints slowed down the building process of the plants. Signs of an impending shortage began in the summer of 2000. As reported by the informative web sites published by SCE, there were blackouts and 22 emergency shortages in the Bay area during the month of June. Shortly therafter, San Diego residents started to feel the affects of this crisis when their bills increased at dramatic rates. The winter months brought even higher bills for more Southern Califomians and even rolhng blackouts in many areas during the first few weeks of the vear Although the crisis seemed hopeless, SCE and other companies issued chiims that they would continue to try and keep costs down and urged consumers to conserve in every possible way. " SCE ' s objective is to keep the hghts on in Soudiem California and to provide reliable and safe service to customers. " The state government also issued hsts of ways to conserve electricity during the shortage.

Controversy over a Westwood mural raised _ questions about freedom of speech H I B k Anmral of tlie Statue of Libei+v ' situated on the side of the Westwood Medical Plaza building was the subject at hand in a contixnersy over the rights to free public speech. The artist, Mike McNeillw was painting his mural on Febman- 20, 1999 for only a few hours before police accosted him, citing the artist with 16 criminal charges that could ha e led to either sLx months in jail or a S 1,500 fine. The primary reason why McNeilly was arrested was that he had violated a cit code which said that an artist maN ' not paint a mural that is in public iew without first obtaining a permit from the Cultural Affiiirs Commission. According to City Councilman Feuer, the particular section of W estwood at which the mural was located " merits special protection from off-site billboards and mural signs. " In response to the accusations laid against him, McNeill)- argued that the process of getting a permit to p;iint his mural was not as easy as it sounds. In order to apply for a permit at the Cultural Affairs Commission, McNeilly needed to obtain permission from Feuer, which McNeilly claimed would have been very unlikely. McNeilly cited the 1969 Shuttlesw ' orth ' . City of Birmingham Supreme Court case in which it was ruled unconstitutional for a higher power (such as the cit) ) to restrain citizens from their right to free speech without specifying " narrow, objective and definite standards. " Bob Ross, McNeilh ' s attonie)-, also planned to use the cit) ' municipal code yHy15 " t " fQ DQCt v Q 91.6205.1, which stated that artists were allowed to paint temporary signs that contain , , 4- " political, ideological, non-commercial messages without obtaining a permit. The C ' P ' IkIKJkI UI I IUjC building owner, who supported McNeilly, ;ilso faced charges. Therefore, according to Aj( ]r-) P f (lJ P [ McNeillv, it was because of the impossibility of obtaining permission from the - i i « councilman that constituted a violation of McNeilly s First Amendment right to free QX ' bCkO Q.Q. WIT k1 IL speech. " Although I personally agree with the mur;il ' s message, I also diink that one must respect the opinion of those who might disagree with it, " said Anthony Aleta, a second ear political science student. " This is wh - I can see vvhv the councilman would be opposed to the mural. " McNeilly refused to take the mural down during the court process for fear that doing so would indicate the cits ' s victon ' . On the original mural, McNeilly had painted a tear on the eye of die Statue as a symbohc protest ot his arrest. Soon after the arrest, McNeilly laid across die unfinished mural a sign saying " Liberty Censored, " and then on Memorial Day 2000, covered the mural with a new graphic called " Liberty 2000. " On August 10, 2000, McNeillv again covered the mural with another graphic called " Know Censorship " in which " know " was used instead of " no " to let the public " know " about the infringement of the right to free speech laid against him. The mural condnued to change and raise controversy periodically, such as the " Pearl Harbor " movie ad put up for a short time in March. This controversv, alth(High it may not have occupied the top spot in the CNN Headline News, was nonetheless nevvsworthv. The debate over the right to free expression and speech was one that has been important to American citizens for decades. In fighting for his right to express himself, McNeilly continued the legacv ' of this debate and impressed upon many people the importance of standing up for whatever we believed in. tl " Alti OMg I per50 ialliy) aqfQQ witi (f e mwdb me55aqe, I also ( Y k (f a! om - Anthony Aleta Political Scie ice 2Kid L ear LIBERTY MURAL 169 UIB Jpdents in general were i n tota pport of out talented athletes su Ashleiqh C W Rumors of the special treatment athletes receive have circulated for years. People have claimed athletes get new cars, clothes and other benefits ' regular ' students were denied. But were these rumors true? And more importantly, if so, were this treatments well deserved? No one attends UCLA for four years without coming to understand the importance of the athletic department to the school. One trip to a UCLA football game illustrated the pride and fanatic enthusiasm students and alums share in support of Bruin sports. Furthermore, the money that the games and the teams brought in to UCLA was enough to assure any doubters that the UCLA athletic department was one of the most profitable sectors of the school. But despite the importance of the department, some students still felt that the special treatment of athletes at UCLA was unfair They felt that there was no reason why athletes got to take their finals early or get free parking while the rest of us were denied these benefits. Because there were so many different opinions about this subject, we ask students what they had to say about this issue. It turns out, most people supported the athletes, specitil treatment or not. So, although some may feel that early finals and special tutoring was unfair, many felt it was justified in light of the many benefits the athletes bring to the school. fit I " I do HY k e mcQwjQ special treatmev]t bwt I tCiini it ' s JMstified because t eijj go awaiy) a lot to meets and e jev]ts.

Whetlier it was for food, clothing, or shelter, man has always searched for an image and a territorv- in which he may express himself. To accomplish these feats, man had to compete with odier men or beasts win. Whether it was a caveman competing with other cavemen for shelter or women or the powerful emperor Augustus in the Roman empire fighting to e.xpand his kingdom and conquer the world agiunst the resistance of his bitter rivals, man has alwavs expressed a desire to be dominant. Millions of vears later a lot has changed, but the determination to rise above )our competitor has not. Toda -, we find these actions most i idh ' expressed in sports rivalries, especially in the competitive world of college sports. UCLA knew a thing or Uvo about rivalries, as was clearly evident in the bitter attitudes of most students when the letters ' USC were mentioned. During Beat ' $C week UCLA held a bonfire, destroyed a car, and even sang chants to express our hatred towards those nastv Trojans. Although the rivalry has become a strong and long lasting tradition for both schools, occasionallv things go a little far This vear, SC (in the opinion of many) went to far by spray painting many signs on Bniin wiilk and releasing rats with red and gold tails into the on-campus computer lull. In the past, both Tonuuv Trojan and our sacred Bruin Bear have also been vandalized. In these modern times, the Bruins go to extremes by vvTapping our bear in a giant latex condom to protect it from SC vandals. Likewise SC took precautionarv measures to ensure the safetv ' of Tommy But college rivalries didn ' t begin or end with the LA cross town rivalry. Battles between schools were all across the country. USCs rivalry with Notre Dame, Stanford and Cal Berkeley, Miami and Florida State, Army and Navy, and Harvard and Yale were just a few rivalries students experienced during the college years. Whether it was football, basketball, soccer, or academics, students tried hard to better their rivals in order to bring a better name to their own universities and at least a little disgrace to the enemy. Howard Chambi, a graduate student in historv, expressed mixed feeling about this issue, indicating that college rivalries can be " fun but pointless. " But Shondella McClellan a fourth vear political science student and a cheerleader Siiid, " Everv vear I look (bnvard to the UCLA versus USC football game.

" But not all Bruins approved of this ongoing battle. Chai Shenoy, a fourth year political science student expressed her feelings by saying, " I think the USC and UCLA rivalry is not healthv.

It seemed like just as a project was finished, the Facilities Management tmck pulled up and tore another building down, Clearlw UCLA was not satisfied until perfection had been reached.

What next? Although the possibilities seemed endless, college seemed to be the logical answer to this life changing question. While four more years of school seemed like an endless commitment to more tests, midterms, and papers, as freshman year began, first ' ear college students began to see that diey had clearly made the right decision. Increasingly each year, the demand for college educated employees grew. As technology ' became a more integral part of the workplace, a college degree was no longer an impressive addition to the resume, but a mandatory factor in getting the job. Gone were the davs when a high school education could carry one through life to a rewarding and successful career. Today, a college degree was a standard expectation for anyone interested in a promising career. Advancements in technology and our growing understanding of the workings of the world has led to the quickening of the pace of life and a new need for well educated and imaginative members of the workforce. Employers have increasingly begun to realize that a college education was an necessary to this new and improved workforce. Employees who lacked this crucial element on their resumes have recently begun to find that they are left at a clear disadvantage, as more college graduates enter the workplace and fill high-paying positions. But the growing cost of attaining higher education often discouraged potential college graduates from achieving graduation goals. Every year tuition increased and with it, the number of students who can not afford to get their degrees. Never the less, the importance of a college education has continued to grow and more employees have felt the pressure to return to school and complete their educations, despite the hefty toll it might take on their paychecks. Maysa Eissa, a third year English and French student reflected on how her education will affect her after she graduates. " College education is expensive but I ' m hoping that the benefits we will receive in the workplace after we graduate, will make the cost more than worth it. I ' ve talked to a lot friends who have graduated from UCLA and they all say that you might as well not even walk in the door [of a potential job] if you don ' t have a college degree. I think paying for college is definitely an ' investment for my future, ' " said Eissa. Clearly, a college education has became an inxaluable resource in the quest for employment. Despite the high cost of education, it seemed that students were willing to shell out the money now in order to reap the many benefits later. In this age of technology, and social advancement, the education and training as well as the exposure to diverse interests and backgrounds received in college will stand us in good stead as we earned our diplomas and headed out into the real world.

Terry Cummings. Roberto Reyes Ana At the UCLA vs. USC football game, yellow and blue faces and bodies cheered for every touchdown with high spirits. It was THE game - everybody went or saw it on television. Attending sporting events was one of the many ways that Bruins had fim and spent their precious weekends and evenings. Despite the tact that most students had to juggle school, work and extracurricular activities, as always, fans made time for the games and showed up to support the blue and gold with that old traditional Bruin spirit. Whether it was to cheer on good friends at swim meets, scope out that cute pitcher from the baseball team, or rally against a cross- town rival team that had no chance of claiming victory, the fans of UCLA athletics never failed to show support. " The sports fans here at UCLA really bring the school together, " said Stephanie Toby, a second year American literature student. " My friends and I always had so much fun dressing up and getting out there to cheer on the athletes. " It was not just current students who sported their UCLA gear while trecking to games. Hundreds of alumni came as well, bringing their children and families to spread that Bruin love. Even prospective Bruins that have just entered elementary school came to scream for their favorite role models with the " I ' m going to college " program. No matter their what age, size or attachment to UCLA was, every person that cheered or clapped helped that winning touchdown, goal, or run to be made. Of course, it w as none other than the talented athletes of UCLA that brought extra fame and reputation to an already outstanding school. With a drive to succeed for the team or with a personal desire to break self-set boundaries. Bruin athletes pushed their hardest to win. " That feeling when you know you ' re about to beat a team, and the clock is ticking down; you know you ' re going to win and that it took the whole team to get there - that ' s the best feeling, " said fifth year Women ' s Basketball player Marie Philman. It was with this deep passion that all UCLA athletes played. With world-renowned coaches and many number one ranked programs. Bruins had experience and knowledge to push them ahead. The year was filled with wins and unexpected losses, which created euphoria or sometimes sadness amongst the entire student body. The cheerful air surrounding Bruin Walk following an amazing win the night before showed the immense impact that athletics had on UCLA as a whole. It wasn ' t just athletes that got into the games. Screaming fans felt that yelling just a little louder would block the opponent ' s goal or send the ball flying out of the park. Though UCLA wasn ' t just about sports, the athletics created a sense of unity and pride throughout campus. If we won, we all cheered. However, if we lost, we vowed to take on that team, far away or just across town, with a vengeance in 12 months ' time. And they had better watch out: all of UCLA will be there along with the athletes to win. By: Carrie Basham Lifc Yearbook 1955 It is difficult to believe these players were on the field in 1955.

According to their ad isor VIollie Quinn, " the UCLA Spirit Squad continues to work hard to promote school spirit, and through long practices and constant!) challenging tliemselves, they ha e achie ed the highest level of their sport. " TechnicalK, the cheerleaders were only one part of the U(X. Spirit Squad, but each separate group desen ' ed its individual spothght. One could not find diem on the UCLA Athletics website because they were actually a part of the Center for Student Programming located in Kercklioff Hall, far from the other athletes in the Morgan Center. Despite this distinction, the members were clear!)- athletes. Their practice schedule consisted of two-hour practices, from 6:30 until 8:30 each weekday morning, five days a week. Following auditions in May, the cheerleaders held simimer practices fixe to eight hours a day from July through September. This rigorous practice schedule did not include their attendance at games which included football, men ' s and women ' s basketball, and the OKnipic sports such as men ' s volleyball, women ' s gymnastics, Softball, and soccer. To make even further demands on their time, squad members often made public appearances, usuallv at some tvpe of an alumni event and frequentlv for local radio and television stations as well. The UCLA cheerleading squad was co-ed, giving the members some extra muscle and allowing them to throw tlie girls even higher antl perfonn more comphcated stunts. Most of the men had some cheerleading experience either during high school or at a company such as United Spirit Association. Some, however, had no [)rior experience, yet thev ' had the athletic abilit) ' and coordination that worked so well for the squad. Tliis was partly due to many hours in die gym before auchtions took place.

" °S;iHard by Erin Sheffield Women ' s Water Polo showed no mercy against their opponenets As the reigning National Champions, UCLA ' s Women ' s Water Polo team faced a new season looking to win again. With former assistant coach Adam Krikoiian promoted to head coach of both the mens and women ' s teams, the Bruins ' prospects were promising. Although the ' lost four graduating seniors last year, the Bmin team did not feel a deep impact. Two of their players, Coralie Simmons and Robin Beauregard, redshirted the last two seasons to train with die U.S. National team. After competing in the Sydney Olympics, the ' returned to play for the UCLA team. Simmons, the team ' s captixin, reentered as a senior and Beauregard as a sophomore. The return of these giris and the ox ' erall strength of the team gave the Bruins a pre-season ranking of first place. This season, diough, things were a httle different. The 2001 season marked the first year that women ' s water polo was a NCAA sport: only after the sport gained fort ' -four teams could they qualify for this position. With this new distinction came some different rules. Instead of sixteen teams going to tlie National Championship, as had happened in the past, NCAA rules dictated that only four teams would go, diree from each conference and one wild card. The wild card team was Ukely to be the second place team in die Bruins ' conference, as this conference historically had the top teams. As a team in the most competitive conference, the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, die Bruins ' understandably felt a little more pressure. ,1he four top teams in the country, UCLA, Cal, Standford, and USC were in the MPSF, and the new rules guaranteed that only two of diese teams at the _ most could go to die NCAA tournament held at Standford in May. Even with the additional pressure, the Bruins were prepared to ' defend their title. ' Tm proud to be a Bruin and so are the rest of my teammates. We all worked incredibly hard to make each other and our coaches proud, " said junior set defender Eleanor Muqiliy. Practices were just the beginning of their hard work. Their pre- season schedule consisted of two hour practices each morning and weight training three days a week. Once the season began, the schedule increased to diree hours a day, six days a week unless there was a game. Players were also required to attend morning conditioni workouts two to three days a week, and weight training two days a week. Coach Krikorian believed this schedule was imperative for his team to succeed. " We had many talented players but the challenge was to get tliem playing well as a team and to maximize their potential.

Graduation means the closing of one door, and the opening of another. But with every past graduation, there has been a logical HANI teji the difference with cor graduation is that nohody is really sure what that next step is. Three eUise IViends and UCLA graduates spoil their caps, gowns, and leis as part of celebrating their graduation from college. Knowing that this meant separating from many friends, graduation was bittersweet. UCLA ' s college graduation ceremony was a spectacular occasion for all graduates. It symbol i cd the closing of one door and the opening of another. Unlike high school graduation. however, there was a great variety of different doors being opened by each graduate. •V For nian ' , i;r,iduation k-lt very bittersweet. We were leavinj; childhood and stability behind in tavor of assuming more adult challenges. With these challenges came an immense amount ot both autonomy and responsibility tor our decisions. Before, we may have had parents guiding our steps, or we just followed along with what everyone else was doing; now it was entirely up to us. Before everybody was still pretty much doing the same thing. We all moved from diapers to the potty and the tricycle to the bicycle. We all went from high school to college. At the time, choosing the right university seemed a daunting task, but in comparison with where we are today, it was a fairly minor decision. Now we have to decide where we go from here, in any of thousands of directions. Law school? Grad school? A job at Pricewaterhouse or Morgan Stanley? Go for a PhD and a professorship? Or a degree in publishing? Teach? The world is open to us, ready to receive us, but we have to choose the form. Graduation d.iy was, for this reason, both exciting and petrifying all at once. Were headed into the real world (not to be confused with " The Real World " that we ' re familiar with as college students via MTV). For the la st four years, we ' ve lived with, eaten with, gone to class with, and partied with all the same people. Our friends became our family. It was almost unbearable to consider a life when we will not see those people every day. Now we ' re all headed in different directions and different lives, albeit with passionate promises to keep in touch, tjroups of friends were cast to to far corners of the country, sometimes even beyond. Relationships fall under the strain of becoming " long distance " or even crumble outside of the college atmosphere. Wouldn ' t it be easier if we could all be like the gang on Beverly Hills 90210, and always stay with the same group? Maybe. But that ' s not as fun, and its not very challenging. Although we will encounter loss, and we close the door on certain aspects of our lives, we will also gain new experiences and new friendships. We will be exposed to opportunities that were impossible at a university. Although life after college may be scary, we had to take that next step. And, as tentative as that step may be, we all took it eventually, the question just becomes, where exactly will it take us? So now, we ' re all wearing the same black robes and the same black mortar boards sitting in the same gym. But we all look a little different too. There ' s the girl with the pink flip-flops, and look, that guy has a lei made with money. Gone were the days when we sat with our high school friends and giggled excitedly about what the next four years would be like. This was college, or should I say was. The poignancy of the moment was captured by the fact that this is the very last time we will all be in the same place, both physically and figuratively, for we are all going very different places. And that ' s what makes it fun, and that ' s what makes it challenging, and maybe that what makes it the real world.

Crowing up in Los Angeles, Jama was aware of the extremes between tlie -ei- wealthy and the impoverished. |ama learned earl that many things about the world were uTiiair. One of her professors, Barbara Koremenos, said about [ama, " I have not encountered an otlier student at UCLA with more commitment to anil enthusiasm regarding public polic ' issues. " Choosing political science as her major. Jama focused nnich ot her time on public polic) ' issues. She accimiulated a 3.8 GPA while Cixrrjing two minors. Women ' s Studies and Urban Planning. Brimming o er with excitement, [ama hopes to " get started working for change on the most difficult problems we face as a societv. " She was passionate enough about these issues to write five research papers while at UCLA. Incredibly enough, she managed to receive an A grade on each paper. According to Jama, " the research papers all center around the things 1 want to dedicate nn ' life to - leadership and urban policx ' , especially housing issues. " Jama was truh ' an indi idual who knew who she was. She said, " My deepest instinct is to change things about this world that I think are unfair. " She iilreacK made a difference. Working with die " Lm Going to College " program for foiu " ears. Jama hoped to change the mind set of many .children who are told b societ ' that college was imattainable to them. As I program ' s assistant coordinator for the past year she further devoted her le to these children. i ■ Jfima de oted nmcli of her time to changing the political attitudes of her " ' ' temporaries. With the 2000 presidential election approaching, Jama and ottier Bruin Democrats dexased a program called " 200 in 2000. " Acting as the program ' s director. Jama sought to enlist at least 200 olunteers to not C O hyi Ct i bZ O e VO Va onK add manpower to the organi tion, put also to more importantly increase awareness about political apatli ' and challenge it. The culmination of " 200 in 2000 " was a ralK held on Halloween, one week before the election. Attended by the Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore, Governor Gra ' Davis, and nmnerous celebrities, the raOy drew a crowd of over 12,000 from all o er the L(xs Angeles area. Despite Gore ' s narrow defeat. Jama insists that. " I feel proud to have been a leader in a successful campaign that sought to empower otcrs and raise awareness of important To future generations of UCLA students Jama offers this advice: " appreciate and take advantage of the incredible opportunities that exist at UCLA. " Jama cei-tainly did. While attending UCLA .she not only got involved in the " Lm CJoing to College " program and Bruin Democrats where she s( rv ed as Alumni Director. Jama was also the Alumni Scholars Club presitlcnt, a campus tour guide, and an orientation counselor for incoming freshmen, just to name a few. Moreox er, she ventured off campus to volunteer for the Special Olympics antl to mentor elementan ' and middle school children through the LA Teamworks program. A devout member of the Catholic church. Jama acted as her brother ' s confirmation sponsor, and has been a volunteer at the Universit) Catholic Center her entire time at UCLA. Following graduation. Jama plans " to spend a few years gaining " real world ' public policv ' knowledge to ground mv ' graduate school experience in a vei-) ' practical understanchng.

Tinu- in e lab as a research assistant, hdwever, was just one of mam ' activities that ima dove into while at UCLA. Amazingly enough, he fomid the time to to-fonuil two organizations at UCLA. In the M of 1999, Ninui start( d tlie IJCLA liittiiK ' t l ' .ntiv|iiviieurs Association " due to a Noid that 1. along with Rtoof ni friends, felt existed in the UCLA undergraduate cnrrieuluni. " ing as a link bet een undergraduates and the Anderson Seliool o Management, tlie organization provided information on e-business and Internet entrepreneurship. In addition to the lEA, Ninia recently co- founded UCLA Aware, an organization devoted to helping the homeless. My friends and I initiated this organization liecause we felt that by increasing awareness of such organizations, we would encourage students to participate in public semce, " said Nima. While doing all of this, he managed to accumulate a 3.98 GPA. Jhe greatest amount of his time, it seems, was spent in the lab. Since fqm 1998, Nima has worked in the UCLA Division of Cardiologv- in the Adierosclerosis Research l!nit. Here he conducted numerous studies iinder the supervision of various professors. Three of his research projects have been pubhshed, ;md he has presented his work to various medical conferences and meetings. In conjunction with the UCLA Health Department, Nima also produced an Independent Study Project and a Student Research Project, both focusing on customer satisfaction at the Arthur Ashe Student Healdi and Wellness Center. Along die hues research, Nima was chosen last summer to participate in the An Heart Association Research Program. This ten-week intemsh cardiovascular laboratorv ' " enabled me to gain tremendous insight process of scientific research. " Nima ;ilso spent countless hours applying what he was learning in tl classroom to the greater communit)-. He volunteered his time witli die ' enice Familv Clinic and the UCLA Arthur Ashe Center as a chnic . assistant. When asked which position was more rewarding Nima repliei " the Venice clinic sen ' ed low-income and underprivileged inchviduals...ll made me realize how fortunate I have been in my life. " Not always completely engrossed in scholarly thought, Ns volunteered to coach his younger brothers basketball team in 199.5 and been doing it ever since. " I initially began volunteering as means spending time wddi my younger brother... It was my first experience at a leadership position. " He also tutored high school students, undoubtedly bestowing on them some of his vast knowledge of science, mathematics, Enghsh, and historv. Nima found time to be the co-chairman of tlie Mortar Board National Senior Honor Society, and to be the editor of die society ' s annual calendar Nominated by one of his research supervisors, an assistant professor of cardiology, Nima was described as " a superb individual who not only deserves recognition, but also more importantlv ' can be a great role model for other students who may be encouraged to follow a similar padi and to acliieve what Nima has achieved. " Nima graduated with a degree in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology and a speciahzadon in Business Administration. On the way to die degree, Nima accumulated several awards for his academic excellence and his research work. He was recognized as an Alumni Scholar and by the UCLA Alumni Association as one of UCLA ' s top 200 seniors. The Provost Honor ' s List acbiowledged Nima everv ' quarter he has attended UCLA. Nima will continue with his education as a M.D. Ph.D. student in UCLA ' s Medical Scientist Training Program. His advice to future generations of UCLA students is " Don ' t forget your roots.

Iler seivice to the coninnniit - was imitjne not only in its magnitude, but also in consideration other incredible academic achievemeuts. Her ability to not onK balance her academic ' load in addition to her extracurricular work but to excel in both. clearK marks her as an exceptional student -ith tlie determination antl discipline to tackle any feat. As a chemistn major. Karen was acknowledged as an exceptional scholar In professors and honor societies alike. In the tall of 1999, she was awartled the prestigious i ' ' thvl Terr - Mc ' Coy Prize for Excellence in Chemistn- based on lu ' r high academic achievements and facult) ' nominations. In addition, she has been ii ' cognized by se ' eral honors societies including the Golden Key Academic National Honors Society and National Societv of Collegiate Scholars and was initiated into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa as a junior. Karen largely attributes her academic success to her parents, whose attitude, she says, " caused me to approach all of mv endea ' ors vvath a determined mind-set. " Professor Jay Friedman, who worked with Karen in the UCLA College Honors Program, described her as " a superior student. " He was supported in his opinion by fellow Professor Yves Rubin who said she " was a star student in [his] course. " Clearly, Karen ' s h ard work and masteiy of her subjects las won the attention of man) different people within the UCLA academic community and will certainly stand her in good stead as she moves on to medical school. But Karens achievements went way bcNond the classroom. Most notably was her ovei-vvhelming commitment to those in need. She was involved with volunteer programs benefiting people and especially childi-en throughout the Los Angeles area. During her first t vo years at UCLA, she was involved in the Student Recruiter Program wliich aimed to encourage jimior high school children which come from disadvantaged backgrounds, to work toward college. She described |ier experience as " emotionally rewarding as I witnessed a shift of pei-pecti e in the minds of die young children. " She goes on to add that, " my experiences with these cliildren triggered an awareness of certain priceless benefits that can be reaped b ' helping a person in need. " In addition to the Student Recruiter Program, Karen was also active in the Jewish Student Union where she was elected publicit chair and in conjunction with the board, helped to increase participation in the organization by 75%. She also participated in CALFH G, was a member of the UCLA Pie-Medicine society, and involved in tlie Bruin Leaders Project. Karens community service has been extensive and her interest in the field of medicine has motivated her to achieve incredible goals within die medical community. In her junior year, she was offered the opportunit) to work closely with a pediatric oncologist, Dr Robert Cooper. It was in Dr. Cooper that Karen found an important mentor and the inspiration to truly pursue a medical career. In speaking of her experience, Karen says, " apart from [Dr. Coopers] many accomplishments stands a unique compassion that shines in moments of human suffering. This is the a.spect that I admire and a.spire to emulate above all. " Her work at the oncology clinic aUowed her to " accompany Dr. Cooper on his rounds in the hospital and spend time wi th many of the critically ill patients. " Karen cited her countless volunteered hours as her most notable achievement. Her work at the oncology clinic stood at the forefront of her dedication to those in need, howe er, it is certainly not limited to that experience. Her involvement in the Student Recruiter Program, as weO as in Camp Heartland and the C:ARE organization also demonstrated her unending commitment to the communit). As she embarks upon the ne.xt part of her academic career at medical school, Karen hoped that like her mentor Dr Cooper " I too will transcend boundaries as I reach out to touch individual lives.

One of the many faculty members who has been involved with Queen and has beei; touched by her sheer strength of will said, " While Queen ' s educationa accomplishments are clear when you look at her transcripts, what is not reflected there is her ragged tenacity when confronted with severe hardships... While most students would be unable to continue their academic pursuits hi the face of what Queen has dealt with as a matter of course. Queen has flourished. " Having faced the death of her father. Queens ability to deal with this tragic loss while also maintaining her student status at UCLA, made her truly exceptional. This remarkable woman ' s achievements were not only impressive, but awe inspiring. Her academic success in and of itself was to be admired. Putting herself through UCLA by working sometimes more than 40 hours a week. Queen still managed to maintain a Summa cum Laude academic standing, while double majoring in Afro-American Studies and Philosophy, with a minor in Education studies. In addition, she received a number of awards for her scholarship. They included the UCLA Distinguished Bruin Award, membership in the Golden Key National Honor Society and Mortar Board National Honor Society, the Julian " Cannonball " Memorial Scholarship, as well as being an honor student in the UCLA College Honors Program. One of her most notable academic accomplishments was her acceptance as a Law Fellow at the UCLA School Qf.,i .aw. She v ' as one of only 47 students selected from tens of thousands of )licants to participate in this elite program. Outside of school, one of Queen ' s largest commitments was as a United States tAir Force R.O.T.C. cadet. In this capacity. Queen excelled as usual. During her J involvement, one of tlie many awards she received was die American Legion 1 Award (Gold Medal). This distinction was reserved for one cadet each year and was the liighest honor that can be bestowed upon the most exceptional Air Force ;adet. In addition, through the UCLA Expo Internsliip and Study Abroad iervices. Queen was granted die opportunit) ' to study abroad in Cariatti, Italy, in an exchange program, and also in Washington D.C. as a full-time intern at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Clearly her sense of duty ' included, but was not limited to her studies at UCLA. Among her commitments to her academic studies and the Air Force, Queen Iso dedicated a great deal of time to tlie community In her years at UCLA, she pinanaged to volunteer for Project MAC, Project B.R.I.T.E., Project SET, was involved in the AIDS Walk 2000, the Career Based Outreach Program and a )letliora of other activites. Her dedication to the community around her was just more of die many tilings to which she was deeply involved. Clearly Queen ' s tensive community service and academic accomplishements attest to her ievotion to many worthy causes. Queen ' s own words best describe her ability to maintain a positive oudook on life no matter what the circumstances. When asked what was the most important tiling she learned at UCLA, she replied with, " if you can dream it, you can achieve it. You owe it to yourself to be much more dian a number on a transcript but rather, POTENTIAL personified. " Furthermore, the adxice Queen passed on to future Bniins was a testament to her own success. She stated; " Realize that our college journey is yours alone to experience. Be prepared to rise to the challenge of adversity when times get tough. Acknowledge the fact that you can ' t have a rainbow without first going through a personal storm. And finally, reserve your strength to be able to continue when at times it would be so much easier to quit. " The tenacity of this accomphshed woman wjus clearly something to be admired. Her personal triumphs in die face of her own adversity make her a role model for any Bniin to follow. - Ashleigfi Lonson SENIOR OF THE YEAR 379 Yoko Yuzawa Psychology Elisheva H.

Mothers and fathers of Bruins showed their support in many different ways as they were always there to do the eight clap or lend a snoulder to cry on. A student reads UCLA ' s daily newspaper, the Daily Bruin and comes across a Bruin Lite Yearbook ad. Bruin Life ads were common in tlie Daily Bruin. Bruin Life Yearbook ads that reminded students to purchase a yearbook featured the famous UCLA squirrels. Ad reminders to purchase yearbooks while having graduation portraits taken utilized the two word question " Forgot Something? " , a take off of the popular milk commercial that featured the two word question " Got milk? " 0- .Sb Av:o Roberto Revcs Anq Bruin parents have tor many years been some of the most involved supporters of the school and its students. UCLA football games clearly illustrated the spirit of this great group as many parents attended the games and tuned in when attendance was not possible. But this was only one of the many facets of parental assistance at UCLA. Many students relied on the moral support of their parents and on parental encouragement to fulfill students ' dreams of higher education. Parents also donated their invaluable financial support. Many students made it through school on their own but many others could never have done it without the support of their parents. With tuition raising every year, many Bruins depended upon their parents to help through them with the heavy financial burden their college educations incurred. Although we mav have moved out and moved on to college and done all the other things growing up entails, it was important to remember that for most students, it was our parents who got us here. It was also our parents who made us stay and helped us through those rough first few weeks in the dorms (boy that food was bad). But more than Mom ' s cooking or Dad ' s advice, it was the knowledge of the fact that they stood behind us and our decision to continue our education in the hopes of graduating and moving on to something bigger and better. Whether it was financial help, their spirit at the games, or their shoulders to cry on during those, " Mom, what am 1 going to do after college? " moments, the support students received from parents was invaluable as always. In addition to parental support, students depended almost as heavily on their friends. Acting as our surrogate families, our friends were a crucial part of our college experience through their ability to understand and empathize with the stresses of midterms and finals and the worries about what life will entail after college. Most students felt that without their friends, they never would have made it. Who else would have stayed up with us all night and studied or driven all the way to Sunset to pick us up at bars at 3 a.m. Friday nights? Although friends provided different types of support that good old Mom and Dad, the help students received from both groups was imperative and undeniably helped make college the incredible experience it certainly has been. So next time your roommate leaves their dishes in the sink or forgets to clean the bathroom, try to look the other way and remember how many times they ' ve bailed you out over the last four years. And, while our parents did have a tendency to nag and worry, maybe we should realize how important they really were and remember to say, " Thanks Mom and Dad. " Because despite the fact that the question of the day every time you see them was, " So, what are you going to do with your life next year, " remember, they only do it because they love us.

Querido Mar Adan, realmente es muy dificil decir algo o muchas cosas a la genre, creo que sale mejor cuando no tienes una relacion afectiva familiar, cuando a la persona a la que se las dices o piensas hacerlo tiene un lugar muy especial en uno, este es el caso de parte de nosotros que nos hemos percatado de los grandes esfuerzos que han hecho ustedes tres en salir adelante y desde luego guiados por la direccion de tu Mami y la comprension y amistad de Leon tu hermano, estos esfuerzos culminaran en fechas proximas con la terminacion de tus estudios profesionales, mismos que tu has llevado acabo con gran exito y con mucho trabajo, pero desde luego que el linico que podra vanagloriarse o pensar en una equivocacion del camino escogido seras tii, los elementos se te han proporcionado con todo amor de parte de ellos y siempre esta, tu sucursal familiar a estado al tanto de tus actividades y desde luego apoyandote en todo, por ello te felicitamos de todo corazon. No estas terminando, ahora empiezes otra etapa de tu vida estudiantil, con mas trabajo y responsabilidad que confiamos saldras adelante para lograr tu futuro y la tranquilidad de tu Mami y hermano. No cambies y sigue adelante y como siempre contaras con tu ti ' o Pepe o Papa postizo, como yo lo entiendo y dado tu entusiasmo por ser alguien en la vida, tendras garantizado un lugar muy importante en la profesion que has elegido.

We are extremely proud of your achievement and we all know that the best is yet to come! You have given us unforgettable memories, you brought smiles to our faces, love to our hearts, and pride in the character of your soul. You are very special and we all love you. MOM DAD Dennis, Risa Lola Epay 422 REGALADO, STAFFORD i Aric, Today is the happiest day of our lives. It represents a major achievement on your part consisting of the many accomplishments in your years of education. Most of all, it teaches that when you want something bad enough, you can achieve it, and you don ' t even have to knock yourself out to do so. Even you will agree that had you exerted yourself with maximum effort, it is likely that by now you would be close to completion of graduate school. But, you will look back years from now and you will say-without hesitation-you did it right. You paced yourself perfectly, and your social life— a very important part of the entire college experience- certainly did not suffer. Your humility is amazing-perhaps, the most incredible of all of your many attributes. From your award in elementary school for the spelling bee to taking first on your team in the academic decathalon; from the California Golden State Award to Valedictorian of your graduating high school class... when you decided you wanted it, you worked for it, and you won it. We must confess, we would have to think really hard before committing to be in a competition against you. With all of this, you never lost your sense of humor. You never lost your sense of good nature, loyalty to friends and family, and feelings that so many young men lose out of despair and as they shed their teen years. You ' ve remained a good brother, a good son, a seriously good friend, and overall, a balanced young adult. Aric, you are unquestionably on the right track. Stay there. Know that we care for you and we are here for you. Congratulations, dear Aric. We love you very much. Mom, Dad Michele ZAMEL 423 Carol Hsu Dear Carol You have paved a road of accomplished goals... there is no end to this road with your ambition and intelligence.
