Shoo Shoo Shakin in The School Year 9 It was the start of the new school year and students were welcomed to campus by an assortment of activities provided bv the UCLA Alumni Association. The Fourth Annual Bruin Bash featured many events for new and returning students that began Sunday, September 24th, with a full-house concert. Rooney, a fi e-piece rock band, performed in front of hundreds of students at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at the start of the evening. Energy reverberated throughout the stadium, empowering the performers with even more enthusiasm. Students packed the stands and sang along with the band. Many other groups performed before Rooney took the stage, receiving fa orable reviews from the stands. Following the concert was a dance held at Pauley Paxilion, where students danced the night away until Monday morning. Kim Ishikawa, a first-year undeclared student, said, " The entire event was definitely fun. The music at the dance made the night more fun, because we all knew the songs. But the concert was even better because my friend Kathleen also caught the drumstick of Rooney! That was the highlight of the night. " The Tennis Center was packed with bodies and excitement as students danced with their friends and met new people. Students who did not want to attend the dance were given another option to go to the Ackerman Grand Ballroom and watch a free sneak preview of Borat. The film told the story of Borat Sagdiyev, a Kazakhstan journalist, and his journey to America. The Bruins were lucky to enjoy this sneak peek of the movie, which premiered a month later. All of this was offered in one night, free of cost, to UCLA students. The only sacrifice students had to make was time, which many did not fret about, since classes did not start until days later. First-year psychobiology student Andrew Nobe expressed, " Bruin Bash was a great way to start the school year. Most of us just started our first school year and I got to meet a lot of new people through this event. " The following Sunday, the Enormous Activities Fair gave students a comprehensive view of the various clubs on campus. The massive fair was held on the Intramural Field, allowing students to bask in the sun and float from table to table in search of activities that interested them. As students wandered around the field, skits and songs were performed for entertainment. Free goodies were given out, and people waited in line for a chance to win a free iPod or other merchandise provided by the Apple store. The Activities Fair was a great opportunity for new and returning students to hit the ground running and get involved at the beginning of the new school year. The week ' s numerous activities enabled first years to experience a taste of UCLA student life, and introduced them to the many exciting, hectic and energetic activities that the campus had to offer to its students. - b y Monica Nguyen hniin hash 17 " Cougars stifle Bruins After suffering back-to-back road losses, the Bruin football team was in dire need of a win as they returned to the Rose Bowl for their homecoming game against the Washington State Cougars. Coming off of a game in which they had victory snatched away from them in the final moments by 10 Notre Dame, the Bruins hoped to bounce back with a win against a solid Washington State squad. It wasn ' t to be, as Washington State dominated in all aspects of the game, winning by a final margin of 37-15. The Bruin defense, which had thus far been the cornerstone of UCLA ' s success, yielded 542 yards of total offense to the Cougars. Washington State quarterback Alex Brink continuously exploited UCLA ' s aggressive defensive scheme by checking off to receix ' crs in man coverage, torching the Bruin secondary for 405 yards and three touchdowns. UCLA ' s offensive woes continued, as no Bruin back gained more than 35 yards rushing, putting more pressure on redshirt st phomore backup quarterback Patrick Cowan. While he showed promise in his debut against Arizona, Cowan struggled in his next two starts, completing under 50% of his passes and throwing two interceptions. Against Washington State, Cowan gave the Bruins the lead going into the half on a 36-yard strike to senior wide recei er Junior Taylor. Unfortunately for the Bruins, this was the lone touchdown in what was another inconsistent and frustrating day for the L ' CLA offense. In honor of homecoming. Bruin cheerleaders and yell crew members sported thro vback uniforms as they rallied support for the Bruin football team. At halftime, the solid gold sound of the UCLA marching band spanned over generations, as the Bruin alumni band joined current students in a Halloween medley which included songs from " The Munsters, " " The ,- ddams Family " and Ghostbuslers. The festi ' ities continued into the stands, where students put on a card show that was shown on national tele ision. The loss snapped UCLA ' s ten-game home winning streak and dropped the Bruins to 4-4 on the season. With match-ups with conference leader California and crosstown rixal L ' SC still left on the schedule, the Bruins had little time to fix the glaring issues in their play. Still, many students remained optimistic about the remainder of the season. " Ve ha e a lot of young talent on our team that will eventually come together, " commented third-year psychology student Darryl Shiraishi. " We still ha -e a lot of winnable games left, so we can still get into a bowl game.

In honor of homecoming, the marching band was joined by the alumni band in a medley of Halloween showtunes. Phdtosiaohi ' il h Pnnre ' . ' Wilv n In preparation for the most anticipated rival football game of the year, students got pumped up with spirit by participating in numerous events ranging from a car smash to the well-known bonfire and rally. Jeff Pang, a second-year business economics and sociology student, stated, " I was not looking forward to the rivalry game after the 66-19 loss last year, but Blue and Gold Week brought back the spirit and enthusiasm. " The week was appropriately named, as students wore school colors throughout the week to showcase their Bruin pride. The week of events began on Monday, November 27, when students guarded the Bruin Bear in front of Ackerman Union every nighi from uninvited ri als looking to play pre-game pranks. On Tuesday, students played Trojan Pinata at the Wooden Center. During the week a blood dri e was held to " Get the Red Out " and SAA offered UCLA T-shirts in exchange for red items of clothing which were donated to USAC. The most anticipated night for UCLA students, staff and alumni was the Beat ' SC tl Above: John Andrawis, a fourth-year biology student, rears back and prepares to take a swing at the red vehicle used in this year ' s car smash.

The parade featured grand marshals Sue Enquist and Karch Kiraly. Enquist had been the head coach of the Bruin Softball program for 19 years. Prior to her coaching career, she led her fellow Bruin teammates in 1978 to their first national championship in Softball. Karl Kiraly, on the other hand, led the Bruin olleyball team to three NCAA titles as an All American team player in the 1980s. With such astounding athletes as grand marshals of the parade, the students present became even more excited for the riveting speeches of current Bruin football players. There were stands on the sidewalks around the parade route that offered students and passersby warm goodies such as churros and popcorn to snack on while they awaited the procession. On stage, the Bruin football players spoke to fans of all ages and rallied support for the game two days later. Fans, donned in blue and gold, jumped around with excitement as the air resounded with the thunder of air sticks accompanying the players ' voices. Unfortunately, due to high winds, students were unable to enjoy the warm glow of the bonfire. The rally committee was forced to cancel the bonfire for the safety of the students; instead, the eyes of the students were delighted with falling confetti. As Andrew Liu, a second-year business economics student, described, " The rally was exciting, because I didn ' t go the year before, but like everyone else, I was disappointed that there was no bonfire. [Still,] the whole point was to bring the school together. " Despite the disappointment. Bruins rallied together and helped bring spirit into the Rose Bowl on game day and into the blue and gold victory. — h y Monica Nguyen o Co Q r:3 CD CD Q CO Co O Q CD O O CQ Co c Q CD 3 5 ID O d.

For seven painstakingly long years, Bruin fans had to sit back and endure the media fawning over how dominant crosstown rival USC was. For seven years, Bruin seniors had to walk off the field in their final regular season game reflecting silently as Trojan players celebrated yet another year in possession of the Victory Bell. For seven years, the UCLA athletic department watched USC produce three Heisman Trophy winners and a BCS National Championship. And on December 2, 2006 one courageous performance by the Bruins made it seem as if the past seven years had never happened. Coming off of three consecutive wins o er ranked opponents, USC was ranked No. 2 in the BCS standings and looked to be a shoo-in for the National Title game. To experts and analysts, the matchup with the Bruins was just an afterthought, with ESPN ' s Kirk Herbstreit proclaiming, " They ' ll run right through UCLA. " On the day of the game, the atmosphere in the sold-out Rose Bowl was electric. A sea of fans adorned in powder blue screamed their support as the Bruins tried to pull the upset against the Trojans. In the first quarter, it was apparent that the game would be a defensive struggle. Faced with the task of stopping use ' s prolific wide receiving tandem of Dwayne Jarrett and Steve Smith, defensive coordinator Dwayne Walker chose to focus his attack on Trojan quarterback John Da id Booty. Walker sent blitzes at Booty from every conceivable angle, confusing and rattling him into early and inaccurate throws. Offensi ely, redshirt sophomore quarterback Patrick Cowan surprised e eryone with his ability to break down the Trojan defense with his legs. On the Bruins ' lone scoring drive on the first half, Cowan scrambled for 55 yards, including a one-yard dive into the endzone that put the Bruins up early 7- 0. USC responded with a safety and touchdown of its own and went into halftime with a 9-7 lead. In the second half, senior All American kicker Justin Medlock added two field goals to give UCLA a 13-9 lead. With under two minutes remaining in the game, it looked as if the Bruins were going to suffer from another late game collapse, as the Trojans drove all the way down to the Bruins ' 18 yard line. But in almost fairy tale fashion, redshirt senior linebacker Eric McNeal tipped and intercepted Booty ' s pass on third and four, sealing a Bruin victory for the first time in seven years. When the clock hit zero, pandemonium ensued, as UCLA players rushed the middle of the field to celebrate. Drenched in Gatorade, head coach Karl Dorrell triumphantly pumped his fists in the air as he addressed tens of thousands of screaming supporters. Students that attempted to rush the field were met with pepper spray and police dressed in riot gear, so instead, junior tailback Chris Markey and redshirt senior wide receiver Junior Taylor made their way over to the student section. " I was really disappointed we could not rush the field to cap off such an amazing win, but the look on Pete Carroll ' s face and the exhilaration of finally beating USC was worth it, " commented third-year psychology student Kristy Ito. With the UCLA band blaring " Sons of Westwood " behind them, Markey and Taylor kicked off a celebration that would last all night long, and would forever stand tribute to one of the greatest performances in Bruin football history. - hy Benjamin Yim ii»;r gamp 23 " .24 Alumni giving bacic For those who didn ' t feel as connected to the university, SAA allowed students to make UCLA their homes. Student Alumni Association, often known as SAA, is the student volunteer program that worked on behalf of the UCLA Alumni Association. Throughout the academic year, SAA planned numerous events to connect alumni, students and the university. These events included Blue and Gold Week, Dinner for 12 Strangers, Spring Sing and Interview With a Bruin. Each activity allowed students to interact with alumni to get a better perspective of what would come post-graduation. Blue and Gold Week, held prior to the highly anticipated UCLA vs. USC football game, was filled with activities for students to ignite school spirit in preparation for the match-up with their crosstown rival. After the loss last year, SAA had to work even harder to boost morale for both the students and the football team. The week was a success as the students ' energy strengthened and excitement mounted. As Maddi Akhter, a second- year political science student expressed, " UCLA is a big school and I love participating in Blue and Gold Week activities because it feels as if the entire campus comes together to cheer on UCLA so we can beat SC. All week you see people wearing UCLA gear and doing the 8-clap and it all culminates in the big bonfire rally on Thursday night. " Another well-known event was Dinner for 12 Strangers, in which students, faculty and fellow alumni attending a local alumnus ' s home to enjoy a home-made dinner in an effort to make UCLA a smaller, friendlier communitv. Held in the by Monica Nguyen middle of winter quarter. Dinner for 12 Strangers encouraged twelve strangers to become twelve friends by the end of dinner as they socialized and made connections with fellow Bruins. Through these interactions, students had the opportunity to feel more connected with the university. The next big event for SAA was Spring Sing, in which student competitors showcased their talent at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. Spring Sing originally started off as fraternities serenading sorority sisters. In 1945, ASUCLA director William Ackerman decided to organize the first Spring Sing competition held at Royce Hall to see which singing group was the best. Though the competition was popular. Spring Sing became dormant for a decade until SAA decided to revitalize the tradition in 1978. Since then, SAA has kept the tradition of Spring Sing alive for all Bruins. Parag Sampat, a second-year undeclared student, commented, " The talents and the bands were great, but the thing that really swept the show away were the skits that were put on in between. They were hilarious and very fitting! " The final major SAA event of the year was Interview With a Bruin. This event allowed students to brush up on their interxiewing skills through mock trials with UCLA alunuii professionals. Students gained valuable knowledge to help them gain a ompetiti e edge in the real world. With the numerous events held on campus each year by the Student Alumni Association, students were able to feel more at home at UCLA, and truly form a Bruin family with the past, present and future. — i Above: Fourth-year communication studies student Heather Wemgart and second-year communication studies student LIndsey Olson help themselves to home- cooked food at a UCLA alumnus ' s house at SAA ' s Dinner for 12 strangers.

Culture Unites UCLA A forgotten war, a great Diaspora, go ernment redress of abuses, the term " homeland, " a simple hyphen. These words by themselves were meaningless until touched by the brainwork of a few talented writers, organized by some dedicated leaders, and animated with the enthusiasm of more than 50 dancers, singers and actors. UCLA cultural nights might not ha e been Broadway shows, but they all came pretty close. The purpose of cultural nights was to educate, inform and entertain people of all races, backgrounds and ages to provide them with a better understanding of a certain culture. These student-run productions proved to be well-received for their exuberant stage backgrounds, vivacious dances, stimulating plotlines, talented indi " iduals and enriching presentation of ones culture. The excitement began in January, w ith the ' ietnamese Culture Night titled " Qiia Huong: My Homeland. " The group performed a musical depicting the ' isit of a UCLA graduate to her homeland, Vietnam. The piece took the audience throughout ' ietnam ' s entire countryside, contrasting the traditional northern region with the modern south, diving into the indigenous population and their customs, and exploring the remnants of French colonization in the country. Hours upon hours of work had been de ' oted into each production. " Practices for the first couple of weeks felt like a part-time job, but they soon consumed my life the week before the e ent, " recalled second-year psychology student and leading female for VCN 2007, Yvonne Hoang. " But the new perspective that I gained about my heritage outweighs e erything, even not ha ing a winter break. " The Korean Culture Night performance, titled " The Forgotten War, " portrayed the lives of five different people and the consequences of the war on their identities. It had been a KCN tradition to focus on themes which encompas.sed not only the Korean community, but that of American society as well. Steve Noh, a third-year psychobiology student, also a performer in KCN 2007, shared the same sentiments, " It made me realize that no matter who won, the end product was unnecessary pain for both sides, dead soldiers, and really still no resolution. " A similar hea ' ) ' theme was portrayed in the Japanese Culture Night 2007 production on government redress for victims in internment camps during World War II. Though these programs illustrated historical topics of great gravity, they program still found ways to include their traditional and modern dances along with their vigorous but refined arts of drumming. Samahang Filipino ' s Samahang Filipino Cultural Night 2007 consisted of many dance suites, such as traditional dances, Spanish-influenced dances, modern hip-hop, mountain dances and experimental ballroom dances. These diverse dances attributed to the Diaspora of the Filipino community throughout the world, which proved to be diverse and different but still unified. This theme alludes to more than the Filipino community alone. As a diverse group of students encompassing different religions, backgrounds and ethnicities, students still connected to one another from the old Orient to the New World, from their parents ' past to their future, displaying that all cultures contain a part of each other. — hy Thoa Nguyen riiltiiral p pntn 29 " A one night stand College students were used to lamenting about clubs closing at 2:00 a.m., when everyone lingers for a moment or two until it becomes too obnoxious to continue dancing with no music. However, during President Day ' s weekend, there was a dance floor with an energetic crowd, where the music wouldn ' t stop even though some wanted it to, and the spinning disco lights wouldn ' t stop shining despite the break of day. The sixth annual Dance Marathon took place from 11 a.m. of February 17 to 1 p.m. of February 18. Dance Marathon, one of the most anticipated events on campus, was a fundraiser for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Camp Kindle and Camp Heartland, both summer camps for children who were living with or had been affected by HIV and AIDS. As a philanthropic tradition of UCLA, Dance Marathon brought students together to raise awareness for the most devastating epidemic of the time and share a common cause that could save the lives of thousands of children. This year, Dance Marathon closed with incredible success, surpassing previous years. With the undying effort of 650 dancers and 1,000 moralers, Dance Marathon raised $330,245.70, a big leap from last year ' s S268,000. The dramatic increase in funds was not only rewarding for the event ' s contributors, but also reminded students that anything was achievable with ■ unswerving unity and dedication. Dance Marathon public relations director and fourth-year political science student Shannon Raj related, " We felt the dancers were able to come out of DM with a better of sense of what this devastating pandemic is all about, and why the fight against AIDS is so incredibly important that they should give up their weekend to participate in this massive demonstration of student awareness and activism. " The overall theme of School House Rock brought back nostalgic memories, such as high school cliques, prom and spring break. Dancers dressed in leis, Hawaiian shirts and surf shorts grooved with the prom queens in silk gowns and puffy dresses. From the all-time favorite beats of the 80s to sexy R B, the ear- throbbing music urged the dancers to rock on, while moralers mad clamoring entrances every three hours to give the dancers waves of energy. The bouncing crowd was driven to madness while the temperature of Ackerman Grand Ballroom hit a sizzling point with the appearance of guest performers, including American Idol Kimberly Locke, 98 Degrees ' Jeff Timmons, and James Franco of Spiderman fame. Participants were also reminded of their cause by guest speakers, which included HIV-positive students, children and parents, as well as AIDS patients. First-year biology student Jia Yee recalled, " What I loved the most about Dance Marathon were the kids who came to speak to us and inspired us to continue dancing. It really let you see what you were dancing for. " In the midst of joyful vivacity, it was the spirit of charity that kept the dancers on their feet for 26 hours despite their sore bodies and exhausted legs. - i vm by Ha ze Kwo k " We felt the dancers were able to come out of DM with a better of sense of what this devastating pandemic is all about, and why the fight against AIDS is so incredibly important...

This annual event was sponsored by UCLA and many students worked hard to plan and deliver the event throughout the year. With jazz performed on Sunday and reggae performed on Monday, there was a diverse selection of music available to satisfy all different tastes. On the day of the event, the grassy field was filled with an explosion of color, as umbrellas, blankets and dancing people decorated the area. The music was the force that drove this friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. People jived along to the songs and tapped their feet on the grass, keeping time to the rhythm. The upbeat sounds that floated up from the field enticed many students to explore this rich world of pleasing sights and sounds. " It was great to sit out in the sun with my friends and move to the great rhythms of the music, " attested jazz enthusiast James Engler, a second-year English I Above: The lead vocalist of the group Detour Posse closes his eyes with emotion as he belts out a tune.

E ery year, famous musicians are brought lo entertain the eager and e en raucous crowd. The pre ious year, world-renowned Gerald Wilson performed on jazz day. Wilson had been a jazz musician for the past 50 years and had worked extensively in composing and arranging music in modern jazz. He worked with the likes of Ray Charles and Duke Ellington, and had even taught popular ethnomusicology courses at UCLA. At the Jazz Reggae Festival, Gerald performed a few of his classics with The Gerald Wilson Orchestra and spiced up the crowd. Another jazz phenom, four-time Grammy winner Dianne Reeves performed a few of her fa ' orites. Her soulful sound enveloped the field with a spirit and passion only jazz could express. Reggae day was even more popular, as many more packed the IM field to get see the performers. With the rising popularity and interest in reggae in popular culture, the streets of Westwood were packed ith cars pumping reggae music as they tried to enter the UCLA campus. The event had many endors selling Jamaican food, such as jerk chicken, as well as different types of clothing and jewelry. Buju Banton, a popular Jamaican musician, performed for over an hour and electrified the anticipating crowd with his appearance. He sung hit songs such as " Champion, " " Bonafide Lo ve " and " Me Too Bad. " The twenty-year tradition of the Jazz Reggae Festi al displayed the rich melting pot of culture that is instilled in UCLA. Many students and fans with varying tastes in music were able to attend and learn about the different histories and styles of jazz and reggae. Enjoying the warm rays of the sun and the companionship of fellow music lovers rounded out the Jazz Reggae experience as a must-attend event of the year. - hy Eric Young ja77 rp yni- fpsti Ti] 33 " .34 Right: Curious George greets the curious criiidren Children iiad the opportunity to meet authors and to browse through extensive collections of children ' s bool(S.

Books over Bozo ] Every year, when gentle spring breezes make their last rounds, white tents pop up all over campus to present a weekend of carnival-like madness. But you won ' t catch Bozo ' s last act here. This craze drew the most voracious readers, a ' id scholars, and eager adventurers — a larger and far more aried audience than Bozo could ever hope for. Southern California inhabitants fondly remembered this literary circus as the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Back by popular demand, this giant book festival made its debut in 1996, and has continued to draw ever-larger flocks of book-lovers every year. Colorful exhibitions ranged from the well-known Borders booth to mom-and-pop bookstores, along with a myriad of independent booksellers that presented a large collection of cultural and ethnic works. Both publishers and writers roamed the fair and poetry readings. Discussion panels and demonstration events punctuated the already jam-packed days. Children ' s storytelling stages excited the young ' uns, and at book-signing booths authors awaited their loyal, adoring fans with pen in hand. Many celebrities and famous writers attended the festival, allowing their fans to acquire personally- autographed copies of their work. " We got to meet Julie Andrews! " gushed second-year history and English student Emily Martin. Rubbing elbows with the stars, delving into their favorite books, and spending the day in the breeze and sun was very enjoyable to all the festival attenders. For every UCLA student, this was a weekend to toss aside textbooks and rediscover the joy of reading for pleasure. Throngs of students turned out to browse through the maze of booths, or to simply weave among the crowds and revel in the energy. Parents and siblings flocked to the UCLA campus to tour the book fair with their favorite Bruins. Aside from the main attraction of books, demonstrations won the hearts of most students. When asked about her experience at the Festival of Books, third-year mathematics applied science and accounting student Angela Lee immediately remembered the cooking demonstration, " It was really cool because it was like Food Network live. " Others found their niche among the melee of clamoring kids. Ling Tang, a second-year mechanical engineering student, commented, " Seeing all the hype for reading and literacy was refreshing, but my favorite part was making my foam fish necklace in the kid zone. It was just a lot of fun because I don ' t get to do that kind of stuff anymore. " There was something to satiate all interests. The Festival of Books certainly reminded many of what it feels like to have time to stroll and window shop, and to feel giddy and carefree among the smell of burgers and kettle korn in the air. It also served as a reminder to overworked students and adults to indulge their inner child, and that even with literature they can clown around a bit. Well, perhaps there is hope for Bozo after all. - by Joyce Chen fpsrival of hnnks 35 " Talent showdown Spring Sing, hosted by the Student Alumni Association, is an annual exent held each April showcasing the diverse and eclectic musical talent of students on campus at UCLA. What started off as a rivalry between two fraternities over who had the better serenaders had evolved into a much-anticipated event, with last year ' s event boasting a sold-out crowd of about 4,000 at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on campus. On Friday, April 28, 2006, over 50 performers graced the stage as they competed in categories such as Best Solo Performance and Best Production Number. From a capella numbers to singer songwriters, the best of the best wowed and kept the crowd wanting more. Between numbers, the audience laughed during side- splitting skits from the much-acclaimed comedy troupe, the Spring Sing Company. One of the highlights of the event came when composer and performer, Burt Bacharach, appeared to perform his hits, including " This Guy ' s in Love with You. " He received the 2006 George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement, a distinction that honors musical artists who have done exemplary work in their field. " [When he performed], Burt Bacharach stole my heart, " said second-year undeclared student Dariane Nabor. Overall, Spring Sing 2006 continued the tradition of not only showcasing the plethora of talent on campus, but also of giving students an even larger sense of pride in their school. Third-year English student Catherine Manabat explained, " Spring Sing gives me the feeling that, ' Wow, these students go to my school. ' " During the spam of the show, many performers showcased their skills and expertise to the pleased crowd. The comedic, musical, dramatic, and a variety of many more acts allowed the student body to take a glimpse into the great pool of talent that was found in the UCLA student body. What started off as a tradition by heart, .soon expanded into this huge event that recognized many from students to professionals, but captured the awe of over 4,000 audience members. For the lucky individuals who were able to acquire tickets to this sold-out event after waiting in neverending lines at the Central Ticket Office, there was an outstanding concensus that appro ed of the e ent. Indeed, people who attended may have come with their minds set on discovering new talents and pleasing their ears, but other discoveries, such as new music genres, or simply meeting more people, certainly allowed this program to fit into UCLA ' s repertoire of grand events. — by Pearl Anne Pagnrignn " Liz. ill L mm ' ' [When he performed], Burt Bochorach stole my heart ' - Dariane Nobor, second-year, undeclared student Above: Burt Bacharach displays the Lifetime Musical Achievement Avrard that he received from UCLA.

Ph j[i:};i-aphed by Yong Kim- ' f w Though sexual assault remains one of the most prevalent forms of violence on college campuses, 90% of assaults go unreported and only 1% to 2% of the assailants are ever prosecuted. The UCLA Clothesline Project was a branc h of the national project that has made a profound impact on campus and on the lives of indi iduals. The organization worked to " bear witness to the survi ors " and to " remember " and help heal ictims. Education and raising awareness of the prevalence of sexual abuse was an important goal. " Clothesline Project aims at providing a enue for survivors to do just that, in a non-political, non-judgmental, open forum of T-shirts. It also serves as a reminder that survivors are not alone, and that we ha ' e much to fight for in our struggle to eradicate sexual violence " explained Jennifer Wang, a third-) ' ear psychology and women ' s studies student. As part of the healing, remembrance and education process, UCLA students, staff and faculty were encouraged to design their own shirts at the UCLA Center for Women Men C Q CD Above: Students stroll through the grass reaeiing the messages painted on the colorful T-shirts.

It was a common sight to walk past the grassy plaza in front of Schoenberg Music Hall and see colorful T-shirts decorated with mo ing statements and testimonies of abuse fluttering in the breeze. Throughout the days when the clotheslines were displayed, hundreds of students silently reflected as they traveled the circumference following the trail of the heart-wrenching, but hopeful, creations. As they passed by each one, they read, discussed or contemplated the mo ing message painted or drawn onto the garment. Each message was unique to the creator and each decorating scheme equally as moving. Some T-shirts expressed anger, some were forgiving, but all of them helped to heal. The T-shirts pro ided an outlet for sur ivors to express themselves. The freeness of their creations in the wind symbolized not only their healing process, but also their ties to the past. Victims thus demonstrated that they were not to be held down by past abuses. T-shirts of all sizes, designs and colors clothed the trees of the plaza, creating a serene but empowering atmosphere. The bright colors almost laughed to the sky as though announcing that while they had been victims of violence and tangled by past storms and winds, they still live vibrantly and fully. The unique array of T-shirts reflected how sexual abuse affects all types of people: old and young, rich and poor, lonely and loved. The Clothesline Project has worked diligently to provide an outlet for people to express their feelings and to heal from their past trials and demands. Over the years, their efforts made the issue of abuse more publicized to the student and working population of UCLA, as well as to populations around the country. — h y Michele Pham Q o CD CO CD o O O CD 3 O CQ — 1- 1 ..I CO S CD a CD CO CD Q Q CO c- Q r _, Co CD 3 rj -1 O o O CD CO — 1- Q Q n O.

Carnesale was nationally known for his expertise in international affairs and national security policy. During his tenure, Carnesale concentrated UCLA ' s efforts on attracting research funds and private monies, in order to sustain the university ' s trajectory as a top ten research institution during an era of decline in state support. From 1997 to 2005, he doubled the scale of research support, initiated the Fiat Lux program in 2001, saw the quality of student body increase, and launched the UCLA in LA initiative to promote community partnership and service. Norman Abrams became acting chancellor of UCLA on July 1, 2006. The Chicago native held AB andJD degrees from the University of Chicago and had been a member of the UCLA faculty since 1959. The UCLA School of Law professor taught and wrote about anti-terrorism law and evidence, as well as federal criminal law. Before being appointed as acting chancellor, Abrams served as UCLA ' s ' ice chancellor of academic personnel from 1991 to 2001, and as interim dean of the law school from 2003 to 2004. " It is indeed a privilege to work with UCLA ' s outstanding students, staff and faculty on behalf of one of the world ' s greatest universities, " Abrams commented on his time at UCLA. During his office, he focused on what he called " UCLA ' s three-part mission of education, research and service, and its commitment to providing access and excellence for the students of California.

Well, for those of vou who were lucky enough to lake one of the Fiat Lux seminars, you ' re probably thinking that your seminar gave you just thai and more. Fiat Lux, translated from Latin as " let there be light, " was a true name for these intimate settings, based on UCLA ' s effort to give students a more personal, interdisciplinary approach to learning. In addition to the general education cluster courses, L CLA offered Fiat Lux seminars designed to create stimulating conversations and to spur the free flow of ideas between students and faculty members. Started in 2002 by seminars based on the events of September 11. 2001 the Fiat Lux series offered roughly 150 seminars. This trend continued by incorporating media sources and personal experiences of faculty and students. This year, UCLA offered more than 200 Fiat Lux seminars, ranging from topics such as " Science Fiction and Religion " to the " Geography of Fire in California. " Colleen Caldwell, a first-year molecular, cell and developmental biology student, recalled her fall quarter seminar entitled " Africa in a Global Context " and how it inOuenced her, commenting, " Some day I want to go to Africa, and it was ... a chance for me to study the relevant politics and social issues a little bit. Fm glad that I was in that [seminar], because my major doesn ' t cover any topics like that ... It gave me a chance to branch out. " The Fiat Lux seminars were each worth one unit, and were pass or no pass classes which helped students in the Honors Program contribute to fulfilling requireinents. And, although freshmen were given priority, enrollment in the Fiat Lux seminars was open to all undergraduate students. Class sizes averaged to be around 20 people, which gave each student the benefit of close contact -» " with the instructing faculty member. Faculty members were able to prepare a class on practically any topic, which provided students with insights into the professors ' intellectual strong points and fa orite areas of study. Fiat Lux seminars enabled undergraduate students to spend a few hours of their busy week attending a class that gave them fresh views into topics that they otherwise would ha e had little opportunity to study. The topics of these classes ranged from the familiar to the fantastical. Some were focused on providing a more comprehensive view of the material, while others honed in on a ery specific subject. Many were engaging and allowed students to add a fresh little something to their already-demanding course loads. - Illuminatin g • new ICS by Ashleigh Puente liiil lll 49 " -50 academics Mf |Some, the idea of research brought up the image of nerdy scientists shuffling laround in a windowless basement laboratory. Others pictured people hunched lover computer keyboards with piles of data printouts and graphs stacked all around the tiny office cubicle. Luckily, student research at UCLA was nothing like that. As an internationally acclaimed university, UCLA boasted the most highly regarded professors and researchers in both the sciences and the humanities. Under the tutelage of UCLA ' s renowned faculty, students began training to become the next generation ' s Nobel Prize winners. Students of all majors found mentors that constantly challenged them to apply what they learned in class, and to take it to the next level. For starters, the Student Research Program served as a springboard for those undergraduates who had not yet had any experience in research. Since its establishment in 1985, SRP helped more than 10,000 students jump- start their research careers. The program offered research courses, seminars, tutorials and departmental honors programs. More importantly, it encouraged students to search and apply for research positions on their own, which in turn allowed students to determine exactly what they were interested in pursuing in the future. More ambitious undergraduates set out to find research positions on their own, and were richly rewarded by the challenges and responsibilities that came with those positions. Garima Yagnik, a fourth-year microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics student, worked with plant genetics under the wing of Dr. Robert Goldberg in the Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology department. She said, " One of my favorite things about doing research is how one question or one experiment doesn ' t produce a final result, but leads to more and more questions that take you down paths you never would have thought of You ' re always able to keep building on what you ' ve done before and that makes doing your current work that much more fun, because everything is tied together. " Many times, the work of student researchers also contributes to future discoveries. liana Van Allen, a fourth-year cognitive science student and a speciaHzation in computing, added, " Being a research assistant for the Psychology Department as an undergraduate student has been very rewarding because the research I have helped conduct could actively contribute to and shape the field of cognitive science. I have been able to explore my interests and apply what I learn in class while gaining really aluable experiences. " While the research in the sciences is better known, research opportunities in the humanities department were just as exciting and pertinent to society. Regardless of what field, students gain an immensely valuable experience that will stay with them throughout their professional lives. - by Joyce Chen ■ " I have been able to explore my interests and apply what I learn in class while gaining really valuable experiences.

The class he was describing was Communication Studies, German and Indo-European Studies M70: " Origin of Languages. " Students could tell immediately that this was not just a class on the true origin of languages. The class comprised of only around 45 students, with majors from chemistry to English, from first - to foiu ' th-ycars. This was definitely a GE course, but by no means an ordinary one. The professor indeed kept to his word, first covering the basics of linguistics, then moving to the evolution of man, language as it pertained to the brain and human behavior, and finally archaeological evidence. Though the ultimate answer to the cjuestion of the origin of language could ne er fully be answered, trying to reconstruct the first languages could be a rewarding experience. Howexer, like many fields that were based on scientific theories and archaeological finds, hypotheses were always formulated and disco eries made each day. Therefore, the course, though only four years of age, was constantly changing to be scientifically up-to-date. The professor only required a course reader for the class, some chapters of which he personally penned. Lectures with Stex ' ens existed between a stable lecture and a discussion medium. " I like more exchange, not a passi e audience just sitting there while I speak for an hour, " shared Stevens. " I prefer to speak in small bits and ask students what they think. " Professor Stevens not only encouraged class participation and enthusiasm, but also expressed some of his own. " Glass can be a drab when you go through so much material, " admitted fourth-year business economics student Brian Stough. " But once every 20 minutes, he ' ll throw in a few one- liners to peak your interest. It ' s a break from my routine economics class, and change, for the better, in the supply and demand of education. " Classmate Ngoc Le, a third-year English student, agreed that " Professor Stevens creates a fun learning atmosphere by incorporating his personal experiences as well as genuinely showing his enthusiasm for the material. " As for the bigger picture, though science still pro ided no clear answers, what it did pro ide was a class for students to better understand who they were. Language is a major component of the human experience, a proponent for this modern world, and an opponent for linguists, anthropologists, ncurolinguists and others alike to disco ' er its mysteries and provide us a deeper understanding of our human nature. It is by far the most useful biological faculty of mankind to utilize or e en manipulate. These questions were left to be uncovered with the layers of sediment and dust lying atop the remains of our prehistoric ancestors. - JJctiJt;! by Thoa Nguyen Below: Professor Stevens smiles encouragingly as he listens to a student ' s thoughts.

" - Fourth-year business economics student Brian Stough Professor Christopher Stevens graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a BA in German, received his MA abroad through Middlebury College, and finally earned a Ph.D in Germanic Languages and Linguistics at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. His passion for Germanic languages stemmed from a professor he met as an undergraduate. As a historical linguist, he focused on how languages change and relate to one another. Naturally, he also speaks fluent Dutch, German, and various dead languages including Old German, Dutch, Frisian, Saxon, English, Norse, and Gothic. Though with such a daunting academic profile, he rarely gives off the intimidating professor aura. His PowerPoint slides ore adorned with light- hearted videos, siren-like sounds, emoticons, silly family pictures, and fictional Melvin scenarios.

In the days before deadlines for essays or exams, students flocked to quiet areas, such as study lounges, designated for their use. Powell Library, which operated 24 hours beginning with the third week of the quarter, was a popular dungeon for the already-tortured brains both during day and night. Located right across from Royce Hall and next to the Humanities building, students swarmed towards the library in between classes. Even though Boelter Hall had its own library and computer labs for the South Campus dwellers, first-year material engineering student Andrew Morris frequented the College Library for its " quiet environment and comfy chairs. " Morris added, " I can take a nap and stay awake for the next two classes. " For students who needed the magic potions to cram in that last chapter, Kerckhoff Coffee House, the Ackerman Union food court, and the Northern Lights Cafe in North Campus Student Center supplied beverages and snacks to revitalize their overworked synapses with caffeine and protein. .Students from the dorms chose to study in the study lounges and Covel Commons study rooms, which opened until 2 a.m. The air conditioning kept students aw ake by sending cons tant chills down their spines and limbs.

They stocked up on food before entering a period of social hibernation in their cocoons of oblivion. As the countdown began, the procrastinators writhed at the looming thought of doom over their party drinks; the crammers, mummified with lecture notes, were delusional and brain-dead after long hours of tackling undecipherable texts or cryptic formulas. On the other hand, those who started early were able to relax before the big day.

Armed with a B.A. from Brown University, on M.F.A. in piano from tfie State University of New York at Buffalo, and a Pfi.D. in History and Theory of Music from the University of Chicago, Professor Winter successfully juggles multiple projects and commitments. Aside from teaching and authoring. Winter concentrates his efforts on spreading the word about the importance of interdisciplinary studies in today ' s musical and artistic realms, where the " the digital revolution has blurred previously sacrosanct distinctions between text, image, and sound. " Professor Vi ffierest in multimedia was piqued in 1989 when the Voyager Company invited him to produce its first interactive software title. Since then, he has given many international lectures on how artistic content functions within the digital world, and advocated the practice and study of arts and digital media integration. Aware that " the artist of the 21st century will frequently be challenged to create in collaboration with others, " Professor Winter continually adjusts his teachings to answer the central concern of how we " prepare our students to be leaders in a world that seems perpetually under construction.

With much gusto, the animated speaker greeted the audience, and then leaped off the stage and cruised the theater aisles, all the while maintaining a running narrative about ... last week ' s midterms? Regardless of the subject matter, Professor Robert Winter brought it to life with his extreme enthusiasm. Of course, the subject of midterms only came up once or twice a quarter; usually. Professor Winter lit up the stage with news of the latest artistic exhibitions, as well as the histories and technique behind such performances. In his class, " Arts Encounters: Exploring Arts Literacy in the 21st Century, " Professor W ' inter told all about the arts of today, and equipped students with the critical skills needed to understand them. The class curriculum exposed students to a w ide variety of artwork and practices, ensuring a good base of knowledge overall. Students examined the memorable paintings of Frida Kahlo, who depicted her Mexican heritage as well as her personal pains with a somewhat surrealistic touch. Through " Romeo and Juliet, " students got a glimpse of the wonderful, yet tragic, world of Shakespearean drama; then they danced away the years, from the charming, three- step waltz to the swingin ' jazzy beat of ragtime. A short sojourn in the life and works of Richard W ' agner IB by Joyce Chen revealed his imjjortant contributions to both the opera scene and his lasting impression on music of recent film scores. Students also delighted in learning about the music of Ira and George Gershwin, whose Broadway lyrics had long since made their mark in the American cul ture. A brilliant piano recital by world- renowned soloist Gloria Cheng opened the students ' eyes and ears to the world of classical music. And of course, as a supplement to such a breath-taking performance, students studied the classical favorites, Mozart and Beethoven. From their exposures to such works, students saw real-life applications of what they learned in lecture, and came to appreciate the histories and inlluences that each era of art represented. Students who took the course really had fun with Professor Winter ' s exciting lectures. Mary O ' Reilly, a first-year undeclared student, said, " It is an entertaining class. It ' s really cool to see current performers in class. " First-year undeclared student Janet Kwon elaborated, " The class presents a good mix of art forms, since Professor Winter brings in a wide variety of the world ' s top performers. On top of that, he also emphasizes class participation, and both of these make the class different everyday. " Professor Winter ' s energetic teaching style inspired ex-en those who have not had much experience with the arts, and made the material both easy to understand and enjoyable.

But perhaps, even more valuable are those lessons learned outside of the country. Far beyond campus borders, our future biologists frolicked among the flora and fauna of the Caribbean, aspiring artists dabbled in Chinese watercolor, and the journalists of tomorrow got a firsthand experience of both the newsroom and German culture. UCLA presented students with a myriad of opportunities to hop on a plane to a faraway place; the Education Abroad Program alone offered a choice selection of 150 uni ersities in almost 50 countries. Students were able to choose between year-long studies, semester courses, summer sessions, and subjects of anything from engineering to communication studies and dance to foreign language. Some students chose a course of study that pertained to their majors, while other more ad enturous students explored an area of study different from their usual stomping grounds. Aside from appreciating the cultural differences, students also disco ered the important role of language and communication in everyday life. Third-year communication studies student Francesca Chang, who studied Chinese at Taida University in Taiwan, explained, " The first thing I noticed was that we really take language for granted. The language barrier is pretty tough to work with. But the main reason I chose this program is because I am half Taiwanese, but my dad never passed on the culture nor the language so I wanted to go there myself and dig into my roots. " Whether their motivations were of academic curiosity, or personal enrichment, students discovered things that UCLA classrooms could not re eal. For those who wanted to see the world, but were slightly hesitant to di e right in, L ' CLA also offered tra el study for the no el globetrotter. The cost-effective travel study programs ranged anywhere from two to six weeks during the summer; and as a comforting thought, a UCLA professor or teaching assistant led these troops overseas. However, as short as they were, these programs were just as varied and e.xciting as the longer study abroad programs offered. Whichever cultures were explored, the memories and lessons of studying abroad will last much longer thait what will be remembered from lectures. Lily Huynh, a psychobiology alumna, recalled, " I had one of the best times in Malaga, Spain. Instead of the fast-paced society we have here in the U.S., people in Spain were more relaxed and valued their families and lifestyles more.

The five-unit class was exclusive, allowing only students in the major to participate in the class. Those who wanted to enroll in classes such as DESMA 162 had to consult with the instructor before being a part of the course. With the strict enrollment, students had a better chance of learning the basic concepts pertaining to sound and digital audio. There was an emphasis on learning practical techniques in creating original sound assets for integration with other media. During class, students learned a variety of topics including the physics of sound, Digital Audio Workstation, recording tolls and techniques, electronic sound synthesis. Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and digital audio formats and standards. The goal of the class was to provide a basic understanding of how to conceptualize and execute sound designs. Students were graded on four original sound design projects, as well as quizzes and class participation. The four projects required conceptualization, live field recording, digital audio synthesis, mixing, mastering and digital delivery. At the end of the quarter, students submitted the design projects into a class audio exhibit in which faculty and students were invited to review and make comments on the projects. To become a Design Media Arts student, prospecti e students had to submit a portfolio for exaluation. With an outstanding faculty engaged in both research and creative work, the UCLA Department of Design | Media Arts offered an undergraduate program which focused on visual communication design with an emphasis on digital media. This uniquely challenging program invited students to balance aesthetic sensibility with logical reasoning, formal theories with practical application and contemporary thought with historical perspective. " [DESMA 162] focuses directly on sound, whereas most of the other classes in the department have to do with visual media and technology, " stated Drew Schnurr. Schnurr, lecturer for DESMA 162, was asked to teach last year; he thought it was a great opportunity and the class had proven this true. During fall quarter this year, Schnurr taught one of his largest classes, for which he had to turn away some students at the beginning of the course. Even with the challenge of a large group, Schnurr found the experience gratifying. Schnurr explained, " I see many people making real strides, which is great; the students ha e amazing potential.

While a number of Bruins decided to join the workforce immediately after their imdergraduate careers, others chose to pursue graduate or professional schools to earn advanced degrees like a master ' s or a doctorate degree. Swimming through the alphabet soup of graduate admissions tests, however, was yet another trial for aspiring professionals as they forged their paths to the next stage of education. Much like the SATs, these tests aimed to assess candidates ' ability to succeed after their admission; unlike the SATs, however, each test was specialized for each particular school. With the growing competition to get into graduate, medical, law or other professional school, those applying knew all too well that the graduate admissions tests were yet another hoop to jump through to achieve success. In addition to grades, application essays and interviews, these tests often placed equal, if not greater, bearing on an applicant ' s overall standing. Students often utilized any advantage that they could get in order to better prepare for these exams. Test preparation materials came in every form imaginable: review books, audio CD ' s, and prep courses, which cost upwards of $1,600. For students taking review courses such as those offered by Kaplan and Princeton Review, their already rigorous schedules were supplemented with an additional four days of review sessions each week, with weekly practice exams during weekends. Numerous students felt that test preparation was an important method of reviewing and preparing them for the tests. Students always kept an ear out for workshops, events, and sessions that offered them free test preparation or tips to help them gain an edge on the other students taking the test. Ambitious students were eager to find a way to make their test scores superior. Many regarded these test scores as the determining factor for admissions into graduate or professional school. Many of these tests such as the GRE and the MGAT began to switch over to a computer-based format. Tests offered only a few times a year were now available almost weekly. Among other advantages, the tests were " more structured, and [students] get more time per question, " according to Dalvin Tsay, a fourth-year history student, who took the GRE in the fall. However, they did come with some drawbacks. Tsay added that the GRE was " less effective because you can ' t go back and change answers, so it ' s kind of an annoyance.

After graduating with a B.S. in aerospace engineering from USC, he went on to pursue a master of East Asian language and culture, with which he had an opportunity to spend a year at Waseda University, Japan. Being half Italian, half American and a keen traveler, as well as having spent a period of his childhood in Acra Beach in Barbados of the Caribbean, Professor Nardi believes that his exposure to cultures has helped him to understand the similarities and differences of human interaction across cultures. Professor Nardi is a fiction writer, as well as the co-author of the bestseller, 16 Personality Types: Descriptions for Self-Discovery and Quick Guide to the 16 Personality Types in Organizations. In 2003, Professor Nardi founded the website, and invented the beloved Socialbot, Truman. Out of his various commitments in researcRI publications and social technology.

It ' s me, baby, " flirted Truman, the robot who had made acquaintance with many Human Complex System students. Artificial intelligence has become increasingly rele ant in daily life. Most people have spoken with a robot, or c en completed a whole transaction by talking to machines on the phone. Countless movies ha e explored the implications of artificial intelligence, such as " Artificial Intelligence: AI " and " I, Robot. " The technical aspect of artificial intelligence might ha e intimidated students who were not particularly computer-sa ' ; ho ve er, the creation of artificial intelligence also invoK ' ed ' arious disciplines from the humanities. " AI should be multidisciplinary, " concluded Professor Dario Nardi, instructor of Honors Collegium 25, " Artificial Intelligence: Machines as People, People as Machines. " It was a fi ' e-unit class offered in the winter, where students were introduced to arious aspects of artificial intelligence, such as its implications on society, media portrayal and its social, psychological and philosophical relevance. Fourth- year molecular, cell and de ' elopmental biology student Maher Abdel-Sattar recalled, " [Professor Nardi ' s] lectures are seriously fun, his classes always have simulations and projects that get students to interact by Haze Kwok and do more than just listening to lectures and taking notes. " One of the most exciting components of the class was the hands-on experience with Socialbot during lab sessions, where students used software to create personalities for their robots. While simulating human beha ior in their robots, students explored the human cogniti e process that related senses to responses and words to emotion. W ' hen asked about his expectations for the students, Professor Nardi replied, " I want them to be able to look back and say that they have positive experience with artificial intelligence and be able to think more critically about new technology. " Mo ies and literature have imagined resentful and blood-thirsty robots that would eventually adopt enough human behavior to take over the world. It could be rather terrifying to see artificial intelligence starting to become more and more sophisticated. Also, learning how to write computer commands could sound like taking up a whole new language for some students. Honors Collegium 25 aimed to disarm the mystery of artificial intelligence by using simple, user- friendly software that did not require students to have previous technical experience. With the knowledge of programming artificial intelligence, students were assured that there was no black magic in the machines that knew how to laugh and dance. - L MMj I Above: Professor Nardt ' s class follows fiis presentation on the blackboard witfi interest.

Wesley Kenney, a seven-time Emmy Award winner, executive producer of the three top soap operas during the 1970s such a s " All in the Family, " " General Hospital " and " Days of Our Lives " . In this film production class, students who had no prior film-making experience learned to produce a film from scratch under the supervision of Professor Kenney. Teaching at UCLA enabled Professor Kenney to work with bright and driven students. He remarked, " Students are really responsive and I enjoyed great feedback from them. It is a hands-on course where they come in and they are doing something, so I have no problem with attendance. " Adjusting to a new school could be a daunting task, especially for those who came from out-of-state. Professor Eric Hayot, a global fellow of the International Institution and an associate English professor from the University of Arizona recalled, " Teaching at a new institution is always a bit complicated — you don ' t know the student culture, you don ' t know the cultures established by the majors the students are in. That was a big part of the challenge of teaching here last year, just figuring out how what I was trying to do in the classroom was being understood by a group of students whose intellectual culture I didn ' t know well. I made a few mistakes, I think, but in general I was happy. " Professor Hayot worked on a book about the history of the Western relation to Chinese suffering. A man of many talents. Professor Hayot is an amateur cyclist, an aficionado of sports video games and a fluent speaker of French, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Many visiting professors came from diverse backgrounds, such as political science Professor Alain Marsot, who has been " traveling literally since [he] was born. " On teaching Southeast Asian politics, Professor Marsot remarked, " Before you talk politics, you need to know the background of the country. " Born in Vietnam, he grew up traveling back and forth between China and Europe, and subsequently spending a considerable amount of time in Southeast Asian countries. Professor Marsot shared his extensive knowledge on the geography, history and religion of Southeast Asia with UCLA students.

It could often become a habit to leave studying as a last-minute check-off on a busy student ' s to-do list of the quarter; it wasn ' t uncommon for frustrated Bruins to find themselves despising studying. Luckily, students found that it didn ' t have to be this way, and thai they didn ' t have to deal w ith those pressures alone. As cliche as it may sound, tutoring was an excellent way for concerned students to prepare for midterms. Counseling was an even better way to deal with the pressure. " Because of tutoring, " Sergio Davila, a first-year biophysics student, stated, " I feel that I ' m ahead of the game in lecture. " Many students felt the same way and thanked their tutors for their efforts. " Tutoring has given me greater academic confidence and has helped me explore my favorite subjects to greater depths, " said Davila. Furthermore, students found peer counseling very helpful. It was a comfort to have someone closer to themselves in age, who was likewise going through a lot of the same things as they were, to talk to. Despite all of the good things about tutoring, some people still shied away from seeking help. Since before college, tutoring was often associated with being unintelligent, but as first-year biochemistry student Paola Castro explained, " Tutoring is for smart people. The people that go to tutoring are the ones that already ha ' e As and want to keep them. " Castro made a good point — everyone could benefit from discussing about what they were learning, asking questions, and hearing others ' responses. Both Covel and AAP offeyed an opportunity for students lo gain guidance and help from their peers. Peer tutoring was a great and important aspect of the life of a Bruin in need. The counselors consisted of trained UCLA students helping and guiding fellow undergraduate students in Campbell Hall, located in North Campus nestled between Haines and Bunch Halls. " My peer counselor was great. We talked about everything: our days, or classes, our problems — everything — when we met. It was so casual and inviting. We quickly became friends, " said second-year history student Diane Von Der Ahe. Over 300 students were able to participate in Peer Counseling. In doing so, they were given advice on courses, time management, social matters, and adapting to UCLA. Older and experienced students were fountains of knowledge for new, incoming students. Everyone needs someone to talk to and receive help from, and tutoring and peer counseling offered was for students to stay grounded and on top of their courses and career goals. - iJIP by Ashleigh Puente tiilpn.

Throughout this journey, we rely on our friends to console us in our misfortunes and lead us in the right direction. This very psy chological aspect of human nature has inspired an innovation which has altered the lives of many. Peer counseling is its name, and P2P experience sharing is its game. Students can easily find themsehes lost amongst the tumultuous bustle of a big college campus. The university recognized and sought solutions to remedy the situation. Third-year psychobiology and education student Jenice Pua expressed, " I ' m interested in education, and ASK gives me an opportunity to open new doors for my career goals, all the while helping fellow students. " ASK Peer Counselors breached the gap between the average Bruin and the empty corridors of College Academic Counseling, serenely situated on the A-level of Murphy Hall. Counselors answered simple questions and pro ided services needed to resolve the more complicated problems students encountered. ASK could be found at various locations on campus, making it a convenient resource for those with quick inquiries. AAP (Academic Advancement Program) was centered around a narrower student population. They selected students whose backgrounds might have negatively affected their col lege experiences. Not only did they foster academic success, but AAP strove to encourage students to pursue graduate-level education, and nurtured the modern thinker capable of success in the rapidly developing century, all the while providing the basic peer mentoring and tutoring for its participants. PLUS (Program Leading to University Success), a component of AAP, focused on college retention in first-generation and low -income students. " PLUS AAP has given me the resources, the networking, and confidence to not only graduate, but be successful overall. 1 belie e that I would not be as determined, independent and skilled as I am today without the resources and even more so the people in the program.

F Peer counseling was a convenient way to gain advice about school and life from students that have recently experienced the same problems and joys. With the memories of their struggles and successes fresh in their minds, the counselors are effectively able to give the students advice that was pertinent to the time and environment. For those that felt lost in the dark, peer counseling was a method to lighten their way.

On August 24, 2006, the International Astronomical Union (lAU) made the decision to reduce the number of planets in the solar system to eight, a mo e that sent science teachers and textbook publishers around the world scrambling. The decision achieved after about 2,500 scientists attended the heated lAU meeting was unanimous. Pluto has a diameter of 2,390 kilometers or about 19% of the Earth ' s diameter. Its most detailed characteristics, however, were still unknown due to the lack of technology to support the study of this small and faraway object. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by American Clyde Tombaugh, and was named after the underworld god of Roman mythology. Since its finding, the former " planet " had lent its name to the element in the periodic table, Plutonium, and to the Disney character, Pluto, Mickey Mouse ' s dog and sidekick. In the late 90s, supported by the development of the telescope, many astronomers began to argue against the status of Pluto as a planet, citing the discovery of many faraway astronomical objects whose size ri aled that of Pluto. A few weeks before the demotion, howex ' er, a group of astronomers proposed to increase the number of planets from nine to twelve, by adding the asteroid Ceres, Pluto ' s moon, Charon, and a small solar system body named 2003 UB313, also known as Pluton. This proposal proved to be controversial ,and essentially brought into question as to what constituted a planet. To justify the reclassification of Pluto as a dwarf planet, the I AU confe rence in Prague also issued a stricter definition to the planet nomenclature. They agreed that in order for a celestial object to qualify as a planet, it must orbit around the sun, be large enough to sustain a hydrostatic equilibrium, be nearly round in shape, and ha ' e an orbit cleared of other celestial bodies. With an orbit overlapping that of Neptune, Pluto ine ' itably failed the last requirement. The demotion of Pluto proved to be disappointing for some people for sentimental reasons. Many people had grown up with an endearing knowledge of Pluto and de eloped soft spots for the former smallest and fiu ' thest situated planet. As a result of this deeply rooted knowledge, it was difficult to unroot it from the mind. J " My teachers always taught me that Pluto might not be a planet, so I never really considered it to be one. " Berenice Camargo, fourth-year, international development studies " Personally , I think the whole debate over Pluto really shows how little we actually know and how small we are in the whole scheme of things. " Daniel Lieu, first-year, undeclared However, for the most part, people remained optimistic for the future of astronomy. " Pluto ' s demotion to a dwarf planet doesn ' t worry me too much, " commented Eric Fong, a third-year biochemistry student. " Times are changing and if that means Pluto isn ' t a planet anymore, then I ' m fine with that. It just shows that science is always changing and that ' s what makes it exciting. " Indeed, the change in Pluto ' s status would not discourage scientists, but would inspire future astronomers to delve deeper into the unknown that lies far beyond the galaxy. — Above: Al Tombaugh, son of the late Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered Pluto, stands in the foreground at a protest for Pluto.

The war displaced o er 950,000 Lebanese and 300,000 Israelis while damage to the Lebanese infrastructure was estimated to exceed U.S. $2.5 billion. The conflict began on July 12th, 2006 at about 9 a.m. when Hezbollah, an Islamic militant organization in Lebanon, initiated rocket attacks on two northern Israeli towns. Under this diversion, a separate ground force killed three Israeli soldiers and captured two from a patrol convoy. Fi e other Israeli soldiers were killed while attempting to give chase. Calling this " Operation Truthful Promise, " Hezbollah ' s leader Hassan Xasrallah declared that " the prisoners [w ould] not be returned except through one way: indirect negotiations and a trade of prisoners. " Hours after the abduction, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) began shelling targets in Lebanon. The Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised that " ' [Lebanon would] fail and pay a dear price for their actions, " remarking that the raids were " not a terror attack, but an operation of a sovereign state without any reason or provocation. " Two Lebanese Cabinet ministers and 14 members of the Lebanese national assembly were Hezbollah members. Other Israeli officials declared that they would turn Lebanon ' s clock back 20 years if the soldiers were not safely and unconditionally returned, saying that negotiations would encourage further abductions. In 2000, Israel had traded 430 Lebanese, Jordanian, and Palestinian prisoners for one Israeli businessman and three bodies of Israeli soldiers also abducted by Hezbollah. A bomb exploded one quiet summer day, breaking the silence of the morning and the hearts of men, women and children throughout the land. The attacks lasted o er a month and by the end of the 34-day conflict, the Israeli Army had fired o er 100,000 shells and the Navy, over 2,500 shells. Hezbollah, however, sustained little damage compared to the size of the Israeli campaign — namely by apparently preparing for such an offensive years ago. The Hezbollah had anticipated a conflict and were prepared. They had built up an arsenal designed to counter an Israeli defensi e. Guerilla attacks by small groups of Hezbollah militants also proved to be problematic for the IDF. Many of the Katyusha artillery rockets fired by the Hezbollah were targeted at Israel ' s heavily populated centers. A large number of Israeli civilians were displaced from northern Israel, while one million were forced to evacuate to security shelters. Lebanon and Israel both agreed to approve a UN Resolution for Israel to withdraw from Lebanese territory and Hezbollah to disarm, . fter the 34 day-long conflict, Lebanon was left in shambles. The streets had become peppered with unexploded cluster bombs and filled with thousands of internally displaced civilians. According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), this event has caused Lebanon to step back about 15 years in development. Foreign policy in Israel, Lebanon and affiliated nations such as Syria and Iran may also have changed; there was a renewed atmosphere of tension. Indeed, the 2006 Lebanon-Israel conflict marked another chapter in the wider Middle Eastern conflict. - The 2006 Israel-Lebanon Conflict .

AP PhotO- krapl lphanfin rnnf ir 79 ' -80 by Fides Lay November 7, 2006 proved to be a good day for the Democrats. After a close race in the midterm election, the Democrats emerged as victors for the first time since 1994 by gaining a majority in the House of Representatixes and the Senate with 230 and 51 respectively. The win by the Democrats also paved the way for California Representative Nancy Pelosi to be the first female Speaker of the House, the closest position to presidency that any woman has e ' er held in the United States. The gubernatorial race in 36 states also reflected the o erall trend of power shift, with Democrats landing more than half of governorship positions across the nation. In Colorado, Bill Ritter became the first Democrat in eight years to be elected as governor, while Ted Strickland won the governorship of Ohio after 16 years of Republican domination. Massachusetts, meanwhile, liit a historical milestone by electing its first black go vernor, Dex ' al Patrick, who also became the second black governor in the nation, L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia being the first more than a decade ago. In California, Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger seemed a second term in the office after a decisive victory over Democrats Phil Angelides. The war in Iraq was one of the major focuses in the election and ultimately became a deciding factor for many voters. Exit poll results showed that most voters in the midterm election opposed the United States ' ongoing involvement in Iraq. In line with the issue, on November 8, 2006, President George W. Bush announced the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld which prompted many speculations among the public regarding the future of U.S. foreign policy in Iracj. President Bush, however, insisted that Rumsfeld ' s resignation had nothing to do with the Democrats ' victory. There were also xarious state and local legislatures that were part of the midterm election ' s agenda. Among these issues were abortion, stem cell research, the increase of minimum wage, the legalization of medicinal marijuana, and alternative energy planning. Despite the overall Democratic victory, Americans were much more di ided on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. Arizona, for example, was the only state among eight that voted to reject the proposition to ban same sex marriage and civil union with a close margin of 51%, while Idaho and South Carolina supported it with an ox ' erwhelming 67% and 78% ' 0te respectively. Other states that sought to legalize the ban included Tennessee, Colorado, Virginia and Visconsin. When it came to women ' s rights, however, most states such as Oregon and South Dakota chose to reject the ban on abortion and the amendment that rec|uired parental notification for underage abortion. The midterm election also recorded a higher turnout among the college-age voters. With so many issues being the focus of the election, it was almost impossible to be knowledgeable on all of them. Lalitta Prachakiit, a third-year design and media arts student commented, " I ' m not familiar with all of the issues, but I think it ' s important to vote on those that I believe in such as abortion. " Many factors contributed to the steadily growing cynicism toward the government, but the fact that people still took their time of the day to learn and ote showed that they still had a siu ' ge of trust and hope for their nation. — A Change in the Political Climate " I am cautiously optimistic about being American again.

Following Richard Nixon ' s resignation on August 9, 1974 Ford became known as the " accidental president, " the only president not elected into the office of President or ' ice President. During his term, he was praised as a president who united the countr - at a time when it needed healing. His most notable act during his presidency was to offer a full pardon for Nixon ' s cr imes in the wake of the Watergate scandal. Rather than ha ing the nation suffer through the prosecution of a former president. Ford believed that the nation needed to look forward to the future. " I think he had to, because the country was ery Nulnerable to fragmentation at that point, and it enabled the country to mo e forward at a point where it cotild ha ' e very well started mo ing backward, " said fourth-year history and classics student Adam Trott. Ford ' s decision to pardon Nixon, howex ' er, was met with sharp criticism, though praised for his w illingness to put the interests of the nation abo -e his own political career. Arguably, this o:ie act cost him the presidential election in 1976. Although Ford ultimately lost the election to Jimmy Carter by less than 1 percent, early polls showed that he trailed by as much as 30 points. In Carter ' s inaugural speech, he paid tribute to Ford ' s sacrifice for the country, saying, " For myself and for our nation, I vant to thank my predecessor for all he has done to heal our land. " Vhen he took office, the nation was mired in the Cold War at the same time that it was recoxering from the ' ietnam War, and was battling both economic inflation and recession. Public distrust of the go ernment was on the rise. In his inaugural speech. Ford pledged to serye the nation with honesty and integrity; historians concur that he did just that, comrnending him for his exceptional leadership in restoring honor to the office of President.

Ironically, the execution was carried out at C ' amp Justice, an Iraqi army base northeast of Baghdad, where Hussein had once stationed his military headquarters, and tortured and hanged Iraqis in his davs of power. Official ideos of the hanging were released; one showing masked executioners placing the noose around Husseins neck, and the other displaying Hussein wrapped in a white burial shroud with his head and neck exposed. The audience seemed to rush the gallows after Hussein was hanged, but his body showed no signs of abuse when it was returned to his hometown the next day. He was buried at his birthplace of Al- Awja in Tikrit, Iraq that same day. The execution of Hussein occurred almost three years after his capture on December 13, 2003. The hunt for Hussein had lasted roughly eight months, and the months leading up to his discox ' ery were marked with the arrests and deaths ofthose closely associated with him and his regime. Immediately following his capture. Hussein was held by U.S. Forces at Camp Cropper untiljune 30, 2004 when the Iraqi go ernment took claim of him to stand trial in an Iracji court for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Special Tribunal charged him specifically with the crimes by Joyce Chen against the people of Dujail in 1982, which included the murder of 148 people, and the torture and wrongful imprisonment of several hundred others. On No ' ember 5, 2006 Hussein was convicted of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death by hanging. There was extensive controversy over Hussein ' s execution, among both the Iraqis, the U.S. and other countries as well. President George ' . Bush stated that Hussein ' s hanging was " the kind of justice he denied the victims of his brutal regime. " Others, however, disagree. Richard Dicker, director of Human Rights Watch ' s International Justice Program took the position at the other end of the spectrum, and said, " Saddam Hussein was responsible for massi -e human rights violations, but that can ' t justify gi ing him the death penalty, which is a cruel and inhmnan jjunishment. " Aside from the debates o er the death sentence, there were also endless deliberations about the objecti ity of Hussein ' s trial. The many disputable elements of the trial and execution inxited a great many opinions. Ben Ferguson, a first-year microbiology, immunology and molecular genetics student, asserted, " He got what he deser ed, but I ' d hardly say his trial was fair. " While the threat of the former Iraqi dictator has been removed, many fear that the execution may trigger new waves of iolence.

Bush as a member of the " Axis of Evil, " a nation whose leadership purportedly sponsored terrorism and sought nuclear weaponry. While no formal relations existed between the United States and North Korea, arguably any relations between the two nations were hampered by those comments. This set forth a series of international predicaments in the nascent stages of the new century. In 2002, North Korea acknowledged that it, in fact, had a secret uranium enrichment program. In 2003, North Korea formally withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1968. Aimed at securing a peaceful end to North Korea ' s nuclear weapons program, the Si.x-Party Talks began in August of 2003. The talks were a series of meetings between six nations: the United States, North Korea, South Korea, China, Russia and Japan. These were initially designed to find a peaceful resolution to end North Korea ' s nuclear weapons program, with a series of talks. Five rounds of meetings brought together the six nations, although it wasn ' t until February 2007 that it was considered to have produced significant progress. Amidst the fifth round of meetings in 2005, talks stalled for an entire year, and resumed only toward the end of 2006. In between the first and second phases of the talks. North Korea claimed to possess several classes of ballistic missiles, including the long-range Taepodong-2 missile. purported to have a range of 6,000 kilometers. On July 5, 2006 despite warnings from the international community, seven missiles were test-launched into the Sea of Japan. The Taepodong-2 failed within a few minutes of launch. On October 9, 2006 North Korea claimed that it had tested nuclear weapons. Responding quickly, the United Nations passed Security Council Resolution 1718, imposing economic sanctions on North Korea, with the condition that the sanctions would be lifted if it complied with a number of provisions. These terms included the immediate end of nuclear or ballistic missile testing, as well as a return to the .Six-Party Talks. Soon after, North Korea agreed to return to the Six- Party Talks for a fifth round. On Feb 13, 2007 in the third phase of the fifth round. North Korea agreed to shut down its nuclear reactor within 60 days and allow for international inspections. In exchange, the other five countries agreed to pro ide energy assistance in the form of 500,000 tons of fuel oil, as well as food aid. President Bush expressed optimism for the deal, lauding it as " an important step in the right direction. " While many were hopeful, some remained cautiously optimistic. Similar deals were reached in the past, including the 1994 Agreed Framework. It remained to be seen, however, whether these new terms would pro ' e fruitful after the long crisis. — Six-party talks for nuclear sanctions m ' ' .I " The situation is terrible ... It ' s really a shame people have to live under such fascist regimes while the rest of the world feels too scared to help. " -Kevin Duffel, philosophy, 3rd year " North Korea is an issue that deserves more attention, not only because of the nuclear issue but also because of the humanitarian crisis. " -Adriana Ahumada, international development studies, 4th Year Working towards Iraqi recovery The world witnessed, in recent years, the execution of Saddam Hussein, the capture of many insurgents, and the Iraqis ' first steps toward a democratic goxernment - and yet there was still no peace in Iraq. Most recently, increased security in Baghdad ordered border crossings to be prohibited between Iraq, Iran and Syria. Vithout the figurehead of Saddam Hussein, the two dominant Muslim groups, the Shiites and the Sunnis, fought openly for donrinance in Iracj. Soon after the security crackdown began, car bombs and ci ilian-directed suicide attacks began to plague Baghdad on a daily basis. Fueled by an inbred hatred for one other, the two groups had e en taken to bombing the other group ' s mosques, particularly during religious times. Facu more alarming was the use of chlorine in the car bombings, along with reports of counterfeit American ehicles and uniforms being used. More violence was expected, and the Iraqi refugees saw no immediate relief in the future. Iraq had a parliamentary-style go ernment, in which Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki held the legislative power. In 2005, an interim transitional government was established until the Iraqi National Assembly was elected as Iraq ' s new legislati e authority on December 15, 2005. . fter its election, the . ssembly then met to elect the Speaker, President, Prime Minister and Cabinet, and draft the Iraqi Constitution. This pro ed to be no easy task, as many religious tensions played hea ily into the process. To help the situation. President Bush had planned to send 21,500 more troops to Iraq, was met with Congress ' s opposition to the proposal, and the House furiously debated the nonbinding resolution that would reinforce its disappro al. The belief that more troops would dri e the war efforts toward ictory was countered in the House. Some belie ed that an increase in troops in Iraq would not make America safer, and that the action would e en damage Iraqi recovery. The decision came to a vote, and the bill disapproving of the increase in troops was passed. As of early 2007, U.S. troops simply tried to keep the peace and help Iracji security. This action, in turn, made officials working in security the most- targeted ictims by power-seeking groups who worked to dissuade the Irac]is from cooperating with the current government. Many Americans desired the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, feeling that the U.S. presence in Iraq was not producti e on the road to peace. Despite this largely popular opinion. President Bush argued that an increase in troops would be able train Iraqi security forces and help stop the attacks. He speculated that pulling out U.S. troops would collapse Irac| in a ci il war. which would lea ' e it ' ulnerable J " My feelings on Iraq have become a tug-of-war.

Second-year chemistry student Annie Liou remarked, " The solution in Iraq is no longer military, but political. There needs to be a political compromise between the two groups to allow them both a share of Iraq so that they stop fighting, and work toward peace. " While that peace had still not materialized, the Iraqi government continued to work to its achievement, with the hope that one day, the people of the nation and the world would see a collaborative Iraqi effort rebuild the country. — Above: President Bush addresses military personnel and their families, commending them for their courage.

Don t Taser by Monica Nguyen Students gathered, on No ember 17, 2006, in Meyerhoff Park to protest the use of a taser on a student by UCPD officers in the Powell Library CLICC computer lab. Outraged words filled the air, demonstrating anger at the officers ' actions on No ' ember 14, 2006. Powell, which opened certain study rooms for 24 hours during midterm and finals weeks, was open only to students and faculty beginning at 11 p.m. for safety reasons. To ensure the strict adherence to this rule, UCLA Community Service Officers (CSOs) conducted random BruinCard checks throughout the night. During one such check, on No ember 14, Mostafa Tabatabainejad, a fourth- vear Middle Eastern and North African studies and philosophy student, who was using a computer in the CLICC lab, was unable to produce his ID. He was consequently asked by CSOs to leave the library. He failed to leave immediately, prompting the CSOs to leave and return with UCPD officers as Tabatabainejad was preparing to head out of the building, when one police officer grabbed his arm. The student yelled at the officer to release him several times. As a result, an officer shot Tabatabainejad with a taser gun, an electroshock weapon, causing him to fall and cry out in pain. Students present in the library at the time recorded the whole incident with camera phones, which showed Tabatabainejad being tasered at least four times, with a duration of approximately three to five seconds each. In the videos, students could hear police officers requesting him to stand up and stop fighting, saying that if he didn ' t, he would " get tased again. " UCPD Assistant Chief of Police Jeff Young explained that at the time, the police had no way of knowing whether the individual was armed or if he was a student. However, students at the scene repeatedly asked the officers to show their badges for identification, at which one police officer threatened that they would " get tased too. " According to the UCPD police release, Tabatabainejad " encouraged library patrons to join his resistance, " at which officers felt it necessary to use the taser. As Young described, " He wasn ' t cooperative; he wouldn ' t identify himself He resisted the officers. " After the incident, students protested on campus, declaring their outrage. Many walked around with signs stating, " I ' m a student, don ' t taser me, " expressing their discontent with the incident. When asked about the situation, Sean MacDavid, a third- year chemical engineering student, responded, " I think the situation definitely could ha ' e been handled differently. I saw the video, and it was ob ious that he was uncooperative, but that is not a legitimate reason for the officer to taser him at all, especially not multiple times ... I think the officers should be punished for using excessive force. " After a week, students settled down and reverted back to their normal lives. Howe er, the incident would certainly be remembered, and called for the reevaluation of the forms of appropriate pimishment on a university campus. - Use of taser arouses mixed feelings Far Left: A student speaks out against the use of the taser gun. as a protest sign waves behind her head.

While shooting a segment for a tele ision program, Irwins heart was pierced by a stingray ' s spine when snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef of his native Australia. Irwin would forever be remembered for his catch phrase, " Crikey! " exclaimed whenever an exciting e ' ent occurred on his show. He was also famous for his charming Australian accent and his signature khaki shirt, shorts and hiking boots, worn on outdoor excursions and e ' en on talk shows, making him a astlv recognizable television icon. Irwin ' s claim to fame was his hit show, " The Crocodile Hunter, " which debuted on Australian TV in 1996. It soon became a hit in the United States and c entually became broadcasted in over 130 countries. Irwin ' s bold tele ' ision persona, the " Crocodile Hunter, " reflected who he was in real life. His courageous antics, such as leaping onto the backs of crocodiles on TV were taken to the Australia Zoo, located in Beerwah, Queensland, which he operated with his wife, Terri. Founded by his parents. Bob and Lyn Irwin, Irwin grew up surrounded by the many animals of the zoo. His interests for dangerous and exotic animals sprouted from a young age. For his sixth birthday, Irwin received a twelve-foot long scrub python. " I ' ve been catching [crocodiles] since I was nine. No problem, " stated Irwin. After graduating from high school, he became a crocodile trapper, removing the reptilians from places where they were considered dangerous. Always concentrating on giving back to society and protecting those he loved, Irwin was an activist in educating the public on caring for and enjoying wildlife. " I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message, " Irwin explained. Through founding the Wildlife Warrior Worldwide, Irwin got his fans interested in preserving wild habitats for endangered species, promoting considerate tourism, and fighting illegal poaching. While leading his many fans toward environmental awareness, Irwin was also a caring husband and father, ho passed down his passion for natiu ' e to his two children, Bindi-Sue and Bob. Shortly after Irwin ' s untimely death, a memorial service was held at the Australia Zoo, which was attended by over 5,000 people and viewed by over 300 million viewers around the world. Bindi-Sue, who would continue her father ' s dri e for conservation and media work, spoke at her father ' s funeral. " My daddy was my hero, " she said. " I know that Daddy made this zoo so everyone could come and learn to lo e all the animals. Daddy made this place his whole life and now it ' s our turn to help Daddy. " - Educator, humanitarian and crocodile hunx " Steve Irwin was a wonderful crocodile hunter, experiencing many dangerous situations that no one would have ever done. His death was unfortunate.

A big wake-up call from the summer habits of sleeping until noon and watching TV all day. Freshmen Orientation was jam-packed with acti ities and workshops. The actix ' ities fair was a student fax ' orite, housing o er twenty student clubs and organizations, giving freshmen a chance to see what was available on campus. Orientation also helped students make new friends. " I made a lot of friends at Orientation, " id Ashley Smith, a first- year undeclared student. " It was a good welcoming experience. " But joining mailing lists and meeting new people weren ' t all that the Freshmen Orientation Counselors had in store for the newcomers. Those hree short days were filled with welcoming speeches, campus tours, dorm food, and even a new video warning against plagiarism. Taking up the last two days, and perhaps occupying the minds of most of the freshmen, were the steps to planning their very first college schedules. Long lists of classes were taped up in Rieber Fireside Lounge, dumbfounding No need to raise that Bruincard the ir Right: Fifth-year communication studies student Jennifer Muise beats on tier taiko drum, showcasing her cultural heritage.

Orientation Counselors, however, saw their students through to the end, where they successfully arranged fall schedules and learned the basics of UCLA ' s schedule- planning tools. Wilson Truong, a first-year psychology student, noted that Orientation " put college in a good light ... it took away the stress that picking classes by myself would have brought. " Truong, along with hundreds of other students, was now confident that he could plan a good schedule by himself in the future. One of the most memorable events that occured during Orientation was the famous Carpe Noctum. During this activity students formed groups that raced around campus snapping photographs of answers to clues that had been provided by the Orientation team. The clues led them all around campus and the winning team proudly donned new UCLA sweatshirts in the end. Orientation left freshmen excited for college; it showed them what to expect out of their first year at UCLA. Being a freshman, or a new person in any environment, can be difficult, but UCLA worked hard to pro ide resources to keep its students in college, and to help them succeed in the future. - Right: Students mill past the tables, looking at clubs and oranizations that mterested them.

Living in the dorms was a great experience, especially for freshmen, many of whom were away from home for the first time. It was a step towards independence, and many loved living in the cozy rooms with wooden furniture. Yet reality hit when new students learned that the joys of communal showers were sparse, a walk back to their rooms was a sport in itself there were no magic fairies to wash their dirty clothes, vacuuming was a must at least once a month, and taking out the trash was ' ital to the room ' s fragrance and well-being. With these responsibilities added to the dorm students ' busy lifestyles, they still found time to get inx ' oK ' ed in dorm-hosted social events. Each area, whether the residence halls, the plazas or the suites, hosted many activities throughout the year, such as weekly floor government meetings, Tai Chi at the Beach, Casino Night, dorm dinners, and game nights in the lounges. Stich activities helped foster the spirit of a dorm fraternity. Life on the hill offered something that was irreplaceable. It presented a chance to interact with peers during all hours of the day, a chance to form " study " groups that turned into impromptu 80s dance parties in the trod, and a chance to establish memories that would linger in those halls for years to come.

" Some loved the dorm life at L CLA so much that they decided to return as Resident Assistants, Programing Assistants, or Student Leaders for their living areas. Through these jobs, they were able to create a unique and memorable dorming experience for others. This group of people was in charge of the daily activities, programs and socials that occured in their buildings and on their floors. A friend w as just a short walk away and fun activities were just around the corner. " Dorming is part of the college experience. I love the social atmosphere and the fact that I have a chance to live with someone other than my parents " said second-year physiological sciences student Sandi Chu. " My roommates are so amazing and wonderful that they became some of my closest friends " With a vast variety of food selections in the many dining halls, with the center of campus about a ten-minute walk away, and with splendid Westwood a bit beyond the outskirts, a student had all he or she needed to live and enjoy life at L CLA. Needless to say, life on the hill was a world of its own. - earning to do laundry. y Michele Pham 1 Left: Fifst-year mathematics student Simon Gian concentrates as he plays pool in the Rieber Terrace recreation room.

Another reason students chose to h e off campus was the freedom they enjoyed awa ' from campus regulations and the surveillance of Resident Assistants. Ccsia Minemana, a second-year law student remarked. " UCLA is a highly regulated place. If you li c on campus you really have to take into consideration what you do. " The freedom of haxing alcohol, microwa e and other prohibited items, including one ' s undressed self in plain iew, was indeed deliciously priceless. Often with reasonable rent, students held their own parking spaces, but walked to school to save gas and parking fees. Li ing in apartments also allowed students to choose their roommates or to have their own rooms, for those who preferred more privacy and space. Typically ranging from one to two bedrooms, apartments were generally more spacious than dorm rooms. Instead of sitting on somebody ' s bed with six other people, Students take first steps into the real world ife in the (adult)Hood by Haze Kwok and wading through knee-deep laundry trying to grab some chips at a dorm party, an apartment gave students a living room to start with, and maybe a barbeque on the ijalcony with a pleasing night view. When the clock chimed twelve and the Porche turned into a pumpkin, students found that they could not forget that freedom came with responsibilities. Fifth-year electrical engineering student Abhijeet Joshi commented, " Living in apartments gives you a more mature and true taste of life, where you need to deal with your neighbors and manager formally. " Lixing off campus was a pre ' iew of adulthood, in which students paid their own bills, settled disputes with other adults, and lived under their own discipline. Even looking for apartments could be a pain. It required the stamina of poring over multiple online databases, making relentless phone calls to the landlords ' answering machines, and hiking the whole of Westwood. In some cases, students also found themselves waiting in line in the wee hours of the morning, just to be placed on a wait list. To save the brave and the clueless, the UCLA Community Housing Office provided students with apartment listings and other useful resources, helping students make that leap into autonomy. - Right: Fourth-year political science and psychology student Francis Henriquez relaxes on her large leather couch.

Passing by Royce Hall, students could always catch a snippet ot UCLA history and anecdotes from the campus tours. Down Janss Steps was a beautiful slope of green meadow scattered with towering oaks trees, ideal for a sunny day picnic. Students enjoyed a taste of nature while Studying under the generous shades of the rich foliage and having intimate exchanges with the legendary squirrels of UCLA. Next to the lush grassland, UCLA was also blessed with an exciting obstacle course known as Bruinwalk. Students usually sprinted the slope with undi ided determination, looking straight, putting on headphones, and holding their breath until they reached the bottom. In fact, Bruinwalk was the vein of campus life where countless opportunities were offered to students if they took time to stop by the many student groups stationed along the way. For those who did t eir tabling duty, Bruinwalk was a regular haVig-out for friends. Officer of the Chinese Students Association and third-year economics student Shi Kan Pang remarked, " It ' s a good gathering location for our officers in between classes to hang out and get to know each other better, as many officers will stop by between classes even when they are not tabling.

The fun didn ' t stop at the Ackerman turna round. A foray of restaurants and shops fined the streets of Westwood Village. Instead of hiding in the intimidating silence of libraries, students who needed some discreet distractions to help concentrate chose to work over a cup of boba in the teahouse or a salad outside the Whole Foods market. For quick snacks, student swarmed to places like Pinkberry or Diddy Riese to add a little sweetness to their hectic college lives. Fourth-year design and media arts student Togo Kida remarked, " Hot weather is simply a good enough reason to bring me to the beach. I ' d go there for no reason with my friends just to watch people and walk around. " A quick getaway to Santa Monica was just one of the luxuries for those who lived by the coast.

If students did not want to go to Westwood at night, some would stay in their rooms and spend time relaxing with a couple of their friends. Claire W ' u, a second-year political science student for example, enjoyed many movies with her friends in the dorm room. The dorms were expedient for many of the first and second years because everyone lived within a five-minute walk. But if Wu did not want to watch a movie, she had the option of going to the apartments to hang out with her friends or drive around Los Angeles. She commented, " I love Los Angeles during the night because nothing really closes until late night. I love going to the clubs around L. during the weekends with my friends until the wee hours of the morning!

But when students were not in places such as Santa Monica, Westwood or on campus for meetings, they could be found in their rooms, doing that thing professors tend to give out after lecture homework. Despite all the activities that surrounded students, the one important thing about college was to study and obtain a higher education. That was why Powell, the college library, was available 24-hours a day beginning after third week of each quarter. So even though eager students had places to go, things to do, and people to see, they always kept their studies as a priority and would go to Powell to study for their classes. - ainting the town blue by Monica Nguyen Above; Third-year biology student Tammy Pham and second-year biology student Mark Farag enjoyed a night out on the town.

Many students obtained jobs through the work-study program, which was offered through eFAN, the Electronic Financial Aid Notification. Part of the earned salary from work-study went toward finances that had to be paid by students. Other students were able to find jobs through the job boards organized by ASUCL.A. Whate er method students used to search for work, these jobs earned students incomes. The money they received from the jobs helped support their living arrangements, food and the occasional splurge on personal items. Time management was a key issue for many working students. Many found that ha ing a job while staying in school was much tougher than it had i een in high school. To maintain a high GPA, students were required to set time aside for studying, yet this time was greatly diminished by long work shifts occupying valuable space in their schedules.

Ser ice needed no reward, and students were driven to act through the goodness of their hearts. As students of higher education, many felt it their responsibility to educate those in less fortunate circumstances. Members of the Asian American Tutorial Project engaged in one-on-one tutoring with immigrant students in Chinatown, ensuring their gradual assimilation to a foreign environment. An AATP veteran, third-year psychology student Tuan Dao affirmed, " Even though I have to wake up at an inconceivable time on Saturday mornings, the satisfaction of seeing my tutee smile after grasping the main idea of a story is more rewarding than any hours of sleep can bring. It ' s that warm and fuzzy feeling that ' s kept me in AATP since my freshman year.

Members of the Hunger Project visited a transitional home each week where they served dinner, ate alongside the residents and ensued in compelling conversations with those willing to share their stories. To volunteers, the experience presented them with an understanding of homelessness and social problems unattainable inside air-conditioned lecture halls. The concept of giving back to the community did not center on service clubs alone. Cultural organizations sponsored mentoring programs to tutor students in their respective ethnic communities. African Student Union ' s African Education Program (AEP) focused on raising low- test scores in Compton ' s local community while Vietnamese Student Union ' s Higher Opportunity Program for Education (HOPE) concentrated on at-risk students in the Westminster residence.

" - Justin Wolske, GSA Director gsa pvpnrs -118 student liie ThosCn who participated in the igorous Reserve Officer Ji-aining Corps (ROTC) strovetowards excellence while serving the country. UCLA offered three different programs in which students selected which department of service tljey would enter, including the Air Forcp rmy and Navy. The Navy ROTC ,s a program that trained students to become officers in the Navy or the Marine Corps, while the Army ROTC and Air Force ' vROTC prepared them for their respective njilitary forces. Students could get involved in any of the programs prior to the start of college. Officers spoke at high schools to inform prospective students about the program. Once they applied for the program, new cadets received a four-year scholarship to go towards their studies as they trained with ROTC. As soon as the school year began, sthdents who were involved in the program part icipated in v ious activities throughout the week as part of their training. They also Wpt through Physical Training, or PT, early in the mornings before classes to get their ' bodies into prime condition. The program sought to traiW its cadets in the science of warfare and thwart of leadership. Another part of their training was Weekend Laboratory where officers discussed various topics about the army that included current events and life in the arm d forces. Aside lue, gold and camouflage t Proud to be a Bruin ... Sir! by Monica Nguyen from the talks, ROTC students participated in battalion activities that strengthened their communal ties and fostered leadership. Despite the physical training the men and women had to endure, they were still expected to maintain their grades. Each ROTC program required a lot of time and effort from participating students. When asked why students would join such a demanding program, first-year history student and member of the Air Force ROTC Niki Werling replied, " I enjoy the camaraderie that exists between the cadets ... We have to depend on each other, grow with one another, and, in the process, make friends who we will keep forever. " Zachary Slavis, a second-year electrical engineering student further elaborated on this camaraderie between cadets, saying, " The bonds I build with my fellow midshipmen makes it feel like a family,;! know there are people who I can turn to who will support me and help me whenever I need it. " After graduation, students received a commission in the military for four years of active duty or four years of reserve status. The other ROTC programs offered a similar setup in goals and hoped to send noble men and women into the armed forces to serve the country. — Right: Cadets line up in formation with their sacks early in the morning.

Library had long since rung their last chimes for the day. A cool wind breezed through campus, yet the tension in the air was unmistakable, creating a deafening silence. Already, endless emptied Nescafe and Kerckhoff coffee cups had piled high on the trash cans just outside of the doors of the library. The night, however, was still young. Even at the late hours, every imaginable study space, from the study lounges in the dorms to the innermost depths of Powell Library ' s 24-hour reading room, was occupied. Many students would still continue their studying for hours on end. Except with a few small breaks. Nearby, swarms of students, clad in little more than the barest essentials., amassed on the intersection of Landfair and Gayley Avenues. Arguably the highlight of finals rituals was the Undie Run, in which students stripped down and refreshed their minds with the night breeze blowing in their faces, as they careened through De Neve, next to Pauley Pavilion, and up Bruinwalk all the way to Royce Hall. " It was very cathartic, " said second-year biochemistry student Michele Wang. From its humble origins as a brisk jog down the streets of Landfair and Glenrock, the Undie Run quickly exploded into a spectacle of an event. In the span of a few years, it burgeoned from a crowd of fewer than 20 to an estimated 4,000 runners, with perhaps as many gawkers and observers and even a great deal of media attention. In order to accommodate the growing number of runners, the original route was moved down Bruinwalk, culminating in a celebration atop Royce quad. Traditional Undie Run garb often included anything from boxers and bikinis to more festive — and often improvised — attire, such as Viking helmets, capes, and occasionally nothing but a strategically placed plastic cup. The Undie Run, while drawing the largest crowd, was not the only finals week Preparing tor nnals never was so cathartic. Left: An excited Undie Run participant jovially jogs down Bruinwalk.

Midnight Yell, rooted in decades of tradition, continued to be one of the most celebrated traditions at UCLA. Though in recent years quelled in the residence halls, it remained a strong tradition among apartment-dwellers. Like clockwork, bursts of screams could be heard at the stroke of midnight. Screams that pierced the otherwise hushed Westwood community lasted for no more than a minute, and as abruptly as they had begun, the dead quiet returned to the night air. And then it was back to hitting the books. Studying hard, however, required the occasional energy boost. Those in the residence halls were privileged to the quarterly Food for Finals program, designed to help students stave off late-night hunger cravings. Students absconded with a veritable trove of goodies to bring back to their dorm rooms, including bagels, candy bars and veggie sticks. While these snacks rarely lasted through finals week. Food for Finals was still a welcome relief to the monotony of cup ramen. Twenty-Two Hours of Quiet remained another tradition in the residence halls. To accommodate a quiet study environment in the dorms, residents were to asked limit their noisy revelries to the hours of 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., lest they face being written up. This proved difficult for those who finished their finals early and had the opportunity to rejoice. Every quarter, as finals loomed over UCLA students, outlets of stress relief manifested itself in strange ways. Students certainly observed their own untold finals rituals. Whether or not these rituals paid off, only when grades came out the following week would they have found out. aring down for finals David Luoii " -- Above: Second-year art history stuiJent Cybelle Tondu concentrates on her studies at Kerckhoff Patio.

At first glance, in the eyes of a bewildered bypasser, these student organizations seemed to be concentrated solely on soliciting their baked goods to increase awareness for starxing children in Africa, or trying to convince others to join their group in hopes of gaining membership dues to fund their annual officers-only retreat. In actuality, these student-run organizations helped fellow students form networks with other students with the same interests, backgrounds and goals. Student organizations allowed students to choose their level of participation within the group they could either become a leader and organize meetings and events, or remain an active or inactive member who simply enjoyed the company of others. Either way, these groups allowed individuals to connect with others outside of their classrooms and fixing arrangements. Student organizations not only allowed students of similar interests to pursue their hobbies and passions as a group, but also to form unforgettable bonds and friendships in the process. College life was more than just studying, papers and finals. Student organizations enhanced the college experience at UCLA, connecting students of different genders and ethnicities, exposing them to different perceptions and schools of thought. With meetings often takingplace during the evening and after classes, and practices and events during the weekends, students were constantly challenged to prioritize their obligations while balancing their already tough academic expectations. However, students came away from their experiences having learned important life skills, such as time management, leadership abilities, organizational planning, and social competence, all highly valued in today ' s ever-demanding labor market. Whether they focused on academics, cultural, pre -professional, performance, service, or special interests, the many different groups on campus exposed UCLA students to a dix ' crse enxironment, regardless of whether the student was a member of these groups. In effect, these millions of smiling faces on Bruinwalk ha e thus achieved their goal of bringing about awareness and attention for their groups, despite many students " best efforts to steer their paths away from them, by Tiffany Liu. ¥ stuHpnl nr ,Tni7.ilinns 127 " .128 student orgarazations Right: The USAC council deliberates on the latest issue during its weekly meeting in Kerckhoff Hall, home of USAC, The Undergraduate Students Association Council attended to everything from student needs to general social concerns.

Photographed by Tushar Ranjan J Lending students I a The Undergraduate Students Association Council (USAC) is the governing body of the Undergraduate Students Association (USA) of which every UCLA undergraduate student was a member. The 13 student officers and commissioners are elected by the undergraduate student body every spring quarter. The remaining representatives were appointed by the 2006-2007 elected USAC president Marwa Kaisey. More than 70 undergraduates were appointed to administrative committees, and the Academic Affairs Commissioner appointed approximately 25 undergraduates to Academic Senate Committees. The students in these committees were in charge of running and putting on many of the major campus-wide events at UCLA. Weekly USAC meetings were held Tuesday nights in Kerckhoff Hall to inform members of updates for each office, to approve official policies, and to bring up issues that were pertinent to the organization. The many USA programs gave students an opportunity to take advantage of the resources offered. The events of the Campus Events Commission were attended by thousands of students, staff and faculty. Their programs included a low-cost film program where students were able to watch $2 movies or see films days before their theatrical releases. A speakers program attracted many to listen to the leading speakers in a wide range of disciplines and performances by many innovative musical and entertainment groups. Another aspect of USA was the Community Service Commission. CSC was the largest completely student-run, student-initiated community service organization in the nation. Some of the current projects of the CSC were Special Olympics, VNLC, the Watts Tutorial program. Bruin Partners, Hunger Project and many other more. The projects ranged from f eeding the hungry, tutoring disadvantaged students in academics, teaching people to read, and educating others about different cultures. The Student Welfare Commission had a very active role in the lives of students. Their programs helped students learn about eating healthy, fitness, recycling and being aware of diverse cultures. SWC worked hard to spread knowledge about AIDS and substance abuse awareness around UCLA. The Student Welfare Commission was in charge of the frequent blood drives that were seen on campus, and were also responsible for the 17,000 yearly donations. SWC also offered to students convenient and affordable CPR and First Aid classes. A large group of volunteers helped to plan and run these health events. There were many more committees that made up USA. Some of them were in charge of the logistical side ot running events and making sure that there were adequate funds, resources and facilities. USAC worked together like a well-oiled machine running on enthusiasm and a true care for the campus and its students.

A large number of sandwich boards dotted every walkway and students traipsing down Bruinwalk were bombarded with twice as many flyers than usual. During this time, students were reminded of how much the GSA does for the UCLA campus. Ever since its establishment in 1936, the GSA had been a strong advocate of students ' rights. The GSA made today ' s express te.xtbook lines possible, a feat accomplished in the 1960s. Their efforts influenced ASUCLA to reform its poorly organized bookstore by creating a separate department for textbooks only. Aside from promoting graduate student interests and encouraging a more tightly knit graduate student community on campus, the many projects that GSA took on profoundly impacted all UCLA students. Comprised of a cabinet of officers, a forum of representatives, and academic councils as well as the student interest board, the GSA worked to ensure equal attention to all issues, such as academic rights, health care, taxes and transportation concerns. The GSA also provided special programs for the students. The well-known Melnitz Movies program was a series of movie screenings at the James Bridges Theater on campus, and was free to all UCLA students and faculty. The Graduate Student Events group also organized get- together opportunities for graduate students in order to promote graduate student interaction. Past events have included mixers and meet ' n ' mingles at anywhere from the Hammer Museum to Sunset Canyon. The Community Service Commission further connected graduate students with numerous volunteer opportunities, many of which collaborated with undergraduate students. The groups included the UCLA Mobile Community, Habitat 4 Humanity, UCLA Music Partnership Program, and the Public Interest Law Fund. Another noteworthy group under the GSA was UCLA ' s Sustainable Research Center, which tirelessly provided education and resources to the UCLA community concerning sustainability and environmental health. In addition to their own projects, the GSA devoted time to broader issues and support groups, such as the UC Students Association, the always- looming issues of the California State Budget and student fees. Although their primary aim was to improve graduate student life, many of the issues they took on impacted both graduates and undergraduates, and ultimately bettered the UCLA campus for all students, by Joyce Chen.

His goals for the academic year included to physically restructure the office to integrate every department, including the television staff, into the Daily Bruin this year, as well as converging all three online, print and television versions of the paper. Such an arduous task could only be given to one who lives, eats, and breathes Daily Bruin. " [The Daily Bruin] has given me my life, my friends, my social life for three years now. Yeah. This is all I do, " shared Schenck. His lifestyle assured the public that no matter what happened, there would always be a newspaper the next day. Even if the event occurred at 1 1 p.m. at night, an article would most likely appear the next morning. Even if the printer and back-up printers stopped working, there were instructions on how to paste up a paper with a trip to Kinko ' s. This dedication and determination made Schenck the perfect candidate to set the precedent for the Daily Bruin for many years to come, by Thoa Nguyen. h d) l ' Paper of Passion, Professionalism, For most of the 250 mcmbcr f the Daily Bruin staff, the newspaper became not only a passion, but n way of life. This dedication earned the publication the title as one of the top ten collegiate newspapers in the country. The professionalism in the workforce, the equipment and the attitude made the Daily Bruin competitixe with professional papers. The December 2005 issue of Newsweek magazine read, " The UCLA Daily Bruin ' s offices, with more than 100 top-of-the-line Apple workstations, rival those of a medium-size professional paper. " This statement paid a lot, considering a staff of part-time 19-, 20-, 21-year-olds who were paid with something that resembled a salary. However, in contrast to professional papers, the environment in Kerchoff 118 felt much more relaxed. Fourth-year communication studies student and editor in chief Jeff Schenk compared the differences, " Our staff is constantly makingjokes; we have all sorts of quotes up on the wall that are funny and or disgusting and that ' s the kind of stuff that you just don ' t get out of a professional newspaper. We have a lot more fun. " Hands-on experience in cooperation with workshops given by professionals from the Los Angeles Times gave the staff a better education in journalism than any classroom could provide. This professionalism went as far as members ' inability to join certain clubs in order to maintain journalistic standards of unbiased news reporting. Such sacrifices yielded fruits of appreciation from avid and irregular readers alike. " The articles contain content which are all relexant to us as UCLA students, as opposed to professional papers that encompass a much broader audience. Plus, the updates on campus events keeps everyone a bit more involved, " commented first-year materials engineering student Andrew Wong. Fifth-year chemistry student Joey Villanueva added, " I enjoy reading the opinions from the Viewpoint section, some are funny and others are quite unorthodox in that they seriously challenge your views. In addition to all that, the sudoku always keeps you busy during monotonous lectures. " Be it the admirable office culture for quality journalism inspired by L.A. ' s wide outlet of major news sources or Schenck ' s infectious passion for journalism, readers and writers could both concur that the Daily Bruin engraved itself as a proud Bruin tradition for past decades and many more to come, by Thoa Nguyen. - 1 1 H;iilv liriiin 133 " .134 student organizations WfM: Fourth-year history and political science student Joseph Mafioleas looks through the wit«}ow separating himself and his DJ partner, third-year biology student Kyle Hyman as they interact on air.

" UCLA-TV and UCLA-Radio are both part of UCLA broadcast media that helped introduce UCLA students to the fundamentals of broadcasting. UCLA-TV, a student-run cable television channel, was broadcasted on channel 29 for those in the dorms and a few- select other buildings. This channel hosted many shows, like " Daily Bruin TV, " " Super Seniors, " " Tight Short, " ' " the Mike and Ben Show, " and many more. BruinNews29, a 30-minute show that aired every Thursday at 7 p.m. between weeks one and nine, provided television news for the UCLA campus. The Mike and Ben Show was a half-hour sketch comedy show that was first established in 1999, making it the longest-running television show ever at UCLA. " The show started off as just a few guys with a camera and has really morphed into an institution over the years, " said the show ' s producer, Danny Ricker. " I love working on the show because we ' re a really tight-knit group; joining the show is kind of like joining a fraternity, but with no dues and more nudity. " " The Mike and Ben Show was surprising. The events in the episodes just left me with my mouth open. I did not know what to expect, " attested second-year English student James Engles. " ResTV channel 22 is programming by students for UCLA residents on the Hill, " explained Cameron Lee, a second-year history major student. " The ResTV team develops, shoots and edits all of our own shows and we feature actors and participants living in the residential halls. We broadcast everything from weekly news shows to library commercials to a comedic movie review show. Check it out on channel 22! " The students involved were able to develop their writing, filming, editing, acting, producing, and managing skills, enabling them to gain experiences for the future. UCLA-Radio broadcasted on the internet from and the music played during these shows ranged from many different genres from rap to classical music, depending on the time of night and the personalities of the DJs. This organization was " committed to the finest programming to inform and entertain UCLA and the world at large, and offering UCLA students and staff the opportunity to participate in the creation and delivery of this content. " UCLA-TV and Radio productions reflected the real lives and thoughts of students. The students of these media organizations knew how to operate with precision and wit, but also knew how to have hours upon hours of fun doing what they loved best.

Many students passed through KerckhofF Hall everyday, to grab a cup of coffee at Kerckhoff Coffeehouse, to attend a meeting in one of the staterooms, or to apply for a job with ASUCLA on the third floor ... but little did they know that in a tucked-away little hallway in Kerckhoff lived the student organizations that produced the many newsmagazines found on campus. These publications, including Al-Talib, FEM, Ha ' am, La Gente, N ommo, Outwrite and Pacific Ties, allowed students to freely express their opinions on issues regarding politics, race, gender, and identity in creative ways. Through articles published in these newsmagazines, students were able to speak to their readers on campus with the use of their own words and cartoons. Though these publications may not have been as well known by the general student population as the Daily Bruin, many of these publications had a following of avid readers that appreciate dthe hard work of those staff members and editors that slaved away into the dark of the night in front of old, tempermental Macintoshes in tiny offices inspired by posters and clippings that stood for what they believed in. 1 I r,M is the UCLA-basod collcginlp Irminisl newsmagazine.

Originally formed as an aspect for ACA ' s culture night (CACN), the continued growth of the team has allowed us to entertain and perform at many locales and celebrations in the Los Angeles area. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for members of the UCLA community with the chance to learn about Chinese lion dancing. For our audiences, we seek to excite, educate and invigorate them with every performance. For our members, we build a sense of " family " away from home and promote leadership development in addition to teaching the various aspects of lion dance. To foster a dance community among students, staff, faculty, and alumni through the movement and music of many dance styles. The weekly dance lessons and special events introduce participants to swing, salsa, tango, and waltz, as well as line and circle dances from around the world. Our three main goals are (1) to provide cultural awareness through dance and music, (2) create a friendly, tolerant, and e.xciting social environment where anyone in the UCLA community can get together to share in a common interest, and (3) develop a strong organization within which to develop strong student leaders.

ARC endeavors to implement changes in the UCLA Medical Center and Plaza by improving overall patient and family experiences. We provide highly reliable feedback about patients ' hospital experience to the management of the outpatient and inpatient care units and program directors of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. . RC focuses mainly on assessing the School of Medicine ' s resident doctors ' progress. Student volunteers gain exceptional clinical and interpersonal experiences with the patient in hopes to improve patient satisfaction in the hospital. Admissions to ARC is highly competitive and requires an application, Curriculum Vitae, personal statement, and an interview. Approximately 18% of the students who applied are admitted to ARC each selection process. ing Care One of the greatest benefits of being a part of a student organization was not limited to students ' time here at UCLA — they carried the experiences and lessons learned with them throughout the rest of their lives, and often in their careers as well. Aside from being another addition to their resumes, prc-professional groups on campus allowed students to connect with others who had similar goals. Whether they planned on pursuing business, accounting, health services, medicine, optometry, geriatrics, pharmacy, dentistry, or law, to name a few, there was at least one group on campus that each student could join to guide them in exam preparation, interview preparation, internship and networking, as well as general skills that ccould be utilized in that career path. However, the biggest benefit to joining these groups was knowing that they are not alone in their struggles to get into graduate, medical, or law school, and that they found friends in the same boat.

Pill Alplia Delta Undergraduates Evaluating Residents How wouU it feel to be a part of the accreditation process of the David Geffen School of Medicine and control a portion of resident-doctors " progress? ARC was a volunteer student group organization in the UCLA Medical Center made up of eight interns: Surgery with Mark Landig and Phuong Ngo, Medicine with Robin Kang and Mark Chou, Pediatrics with Sheena Kamra and Ceclia Choy, OBGYN with Michelle Domingo and Jillian Tarrab, with Mark Landig as the lead intern. 30 student volunteers helped the school of medicine get its renewal of accreditation. Each medical school must follow the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requirement — two of which are bed-side manner and clinical knowledge. Volunteers would go on their prospective floors daily to evaluate the patient ' s resident doctors. Departmental interns sent weekly reports to their prospective lead attending doctors to assess his residents. All data was then taken into account on the resident doctor ' s file for evaluation. ARC ' olunteers thus gained valuable experiences in dealing with patients and doctors. Additionally, unlike most volunteer programs, ARC is a very close-knit group of individuals, all possessing a similar passion. The experiences obtained from ARC have been positive and exciting, by Mark Landig. f mg .142 student organizaOons The Association of Chinese Americans (ACA) is involved in cultural, social, community and political projects, which benefit its members, its campus, and its community.

When freshmen were herded into the Student Acthities Fair at Orientation, many of them headed straight to certain brightly decorated tables and signed up with a student organization that represented that student ' s cultural background. Cultural organizations on campus were usually quite large, as students found that the easiest way to meet other people they could identify with were students with similar cultural backgrounds. These groups often hosted a variety of ordinary activities for their members, which may not have necessarily related to their culture, from broomballing to intramural sports teams and potlucks to snowboarding retreats. However, many groups also held events that promote dcultural awareness and identity — they attend edconventions, cooked ethnic food together, put on culture nights, and formed traditional dance and performance teams. Since many students foud that it was easier to relate to others that come from a similar cultural background, they created a network for new students away from home, forming lasting friendships regardkess of age, majors and career paths, focusing instead on each student ' s own cultural II J msteaa on eacn siuuerus own cuituiai A| ' identity ■ [j I Chinese Students Association WV.

UniCamp is a completely student-based organization that strives to prove that " every kid deserves a chance. " We believe that socio-economic factors should not be a reason that a child does not get an equal opportunity to reach their full potential. Therefore, through week-long summer camp sessions and or a year-long mentorhship program, we emphasize things like goal-setting, higher education, tolerance, self- confidence, and anything else that matters for a young person ' s development. Most of all, we believe in " woodsey, " our coined term for how we want to act, how we want to treat others, and how we would like to be treated in return. Basically, it means, do the right thing, the thing that makes you feel good and warm inside when you go to sleep. Unicamp My Experience: UniCamp I have been involved with UniCamp since my first year at UCLA. Last year, I was a head counselor, or program director, for one of the UniCamp sessions. There were 7 week-long sessions of camp per year, with around 160 children and 50 volunteers each week. UniCamp has been the most defining experience of my UCLA career, and possibly of my life. The people you meet through camp have the biggest hearts and are the most generous. It was really amazing to see such dedication from college students. We fundraised to make it happen, raising over 1120,000 last year to help pay for camp. This allowed the kids to pay only $50 of the usual $400 cost for a week. Camp taught me a lot about the potential of kids, if they are given a fair chance. We tried to do things like body image talks with teenage girls or set role models with all the kids. " Woodsey-ness " was really how we defined everything. We have woodsey language, which means no swearing, and names for each member at camp. The purpose of the funny nicknames was so that the kids and counselors can escape city and school life and their typical selves. In the mountains, we wanted people to feel free to be anything they wished to be. I loved camp and what it stood for, I made some of my best friends through camp, and have pursuaded all of my closest friends to take part in it. Going up to the mountains with the children was really magical, and words can never do the experience justice, by Tiffany Duong. -. i . .148 student organizations f To be a link for students between academia and industry specifying in engineering and technology.

Members perform in outreach events to the LICLA community and the greater Los Angeles area, aiming to fulfill the club ' s vision. The rapid growth of the club and its many successes is attributed to the commitment of its members. Their love of learning about the Chinese culture and performing arts is what drives the club year after year. Lotus Steps is presented in the spring every year. The production features student and alumni-choreographed pieces borrow from classical, contemporary, ethnic, folk and martial arts dance styles. Chinese Cultural Dance Club Whether it was a cultural dance, hip- hop, play or other .special art, most students who participated in these student organizations were not majoring in the fine arts. Student groups dealing with the performing arts allowed students from all backgrounds and majors to participate in an activity that was fun and rewarding, while allowing students to take their minds off of school. On almost any given evening on the Bruin Plaza Stage, a group could be seen practicing for an upcoming performance or competition. Sometimes, many small groups would be littered around the Bruin Plaza area, striking poses, practicing lines, and perfecting formations as another member shouted in the background, " One, two, three and FOUR, five, six, SEV-en, eight! " Various practices could also be sighted in the upstairs rooms in the Wooden Center, as well as random parking structures throughout campus. When it finally came to the big performance or competition, many Bruins eagerly went to cheer on their peers or simply to marvel at the skill and grace with which these groups iS ftryiMMAtc M ' I I ce I i Front Row: Philip Luu.

Membership is free and our meetings usually incorporate a group ride out to a restaurant and the next logical progression: lunch dinner. Our members range from daily commuters to licensed club racers; so, whether it be a night of cruising around town, a Sunday ride through Malibu Canyons, or a track-day event at one of the nearby sanctioned racetracks, B.M.A. appeals to riders of all styles, backgrounds, and likes. As a club, B.M.A. is committed to the promotion of safe and responsible riding techniques. As a matter of fact, we take safety seriously because riding motorcycles can be very dangerous, especially on the streets and freeways of Los Angeles. We encourage all Bruin Riders to come out and be a part of our dynamic and fun-filled group. CALPIRG is devoted to protecting the public interest. To do this, we work on environmental, social and student- interest campaigns. When consumers are cheated, our natural environment is threatened or the voices of ordinary citizens are drowned out by special interest lobbyists, Calpirg speaks up and takes action.

O tO L and Sisters Siudeiils in the Greek system often confessed that their deepest and fondest memories of college were not related to academics, but to their Greek experience. Being a part of Greek life enabled students to find a " home away from home " and to create relationships that were unlike any other. In addition to the brothers and sisters at the chapter on campus, members were able to form relationships with alumni and other chapters across the nation, or even worldwide — forging a network that reached beyond college years. Some students entered coUege with prejudices against sororities and fraternities ingrained in their minds from movies popular Hollywood teen films, and swore that they would never join such an organization. Later on, however, when they decided to give these groups a chance, they ended up feeling like it was the best thing they had ever done. Other students knew right from the start that the Greek system was something they wanted to be a part of, and they do e right into fraternity and sororit ' life. Such students enthusiastically put forth their best efforts to present themselves in appealing ways to organizations in the hopes of receiving a bid, before school had even started. Regardless of the stereotypes that revolved around the Greek system, students were able to overcome these expectations and define the world for themselves. There were several different councils on campus that emphasized different ideals, such as cultural identity, community ' service, pre-professional training, or simply creating a social network. Students interested in joining the Greek scene dius found themselves faced with a diverse selection of Greek organizations to choose from. Whether it was late night parties on a Thursdav ' night with an 8 a.m. midterm the ne.xt day, practicing for sports competitions like intramural playoffs, getting up at 9am on a Saturday to do service to the community, or just hanging out with fraternity brothers and sorority sisters at the house and bonding over a late night Puzzles food run, being a part of a Greek organization provided many memorable events for the students who made it their lifestyle, by Tiffany Liu. - an-ek lifp 173 " .174 greek lite The UCLA Panhellenic Council is the representative and legislative body for the eleven National Panhellenic Council chapters on the UCLA campus.

The Multi-Interest Greek Council (MIGC) exists to serve the needs of their member organizations, while upholding high standards of conduct, scholarship and service. These Greek chapters are often formed to develop a cultural support network, advance social action and service within their specific communities, and bring the concepts of friendship and camaraderie together with a particular ethnicity, interest, or academic tocus. MIGC organizations are formed on such principles as academic advancement, campus involvement, social and recreational involvement. Several of these Greek-letter groups are local, unique to UCLA, while others are national regional with brother sister chapters around the U.S. or specific to the Western Region. The philosophy of bringing students together to celebrate culture or a specific interest, in the name of brotherhood sisterhood, is a testament to the values-based reality in Greek Life.

As one of the best colleges wofldwide, being a UCLA student athlete requires much more than athletic prowess. Hundreds of student athletes are turned away each year because they cannot meet UCLA ' s high academic standards. Even after gaining entrance, students are required to maintain a high level of academic achievement while continuously juggling the rigors of practice and competition with schoolwork and tests. Hours of dedication and effort poured into sports are matched minute for minute in the classroom doing schoolwork. During their run to the Final Four, the men ' s basketball team had to deal with final exams in addition to preparing for tough opponents. However, players knew that this was just part of being a Bruin student athlete. Sophomore point guard Darren Collison didn ' t think finals added any additional difficulty to his practice schedule, commenting, " At UCLA you always have to concentrate on school.

Coming off of a thrilling 10-2 season that included four come-from-behind wins and a Sun Bowl victory, expectations were high for head coach Karl Dorrell and the 2006 Bruin squad. Off-season adjustments were unusually hard on the team, as the Bruins lost their leading passer, receiver and rusher to the NFL. In addition, coach Dorrell brought in six new assistant coaches, including a new offensive and defensive coordinator. The Bruins, who had been one of the nation ' s best offensive teams in 2005, looked to continue their high scoring ways behind redshirt sophomore quarterback Ben Olson, junior tailback Chris Markey and redshirt senior wide receiver Junior Taylor. Defensively, no one was sure what to expect under new defensive coordinator Dwayne Walker.

In his debut game as a starter against Utah, Olson did not disappoint. Completing 25 of 33 passes for 318 yards and three touchdowns, he had one of the best games ever by a Bruin rookie quarterback. However, over the next few weeks, it was clear Olson was suffering from the effects of not playing competitive football for o er five years. After his outstan ding performance against the Utes, Olson struggled, throwing only two touchdowns and five interceptions in his next four games. Surprisingly, UCLA ' s defense compensated for their offensive woes, ranking among the best in the nation in run defense and third down conversions. Defensive ends Bruce Davis and Justin Hickman especially stepped up their games, finishing the season with a combined 25 sacks. In a matchup against Arizona, Bruin fans watched in despair as Olson went down with a knee injury that would sideline him for the rest of the season. But redshirt sophomore quarterback Patrick Cowan didn ' t panic as he stepped into Olson ' s place and executed UCLA ' s game plan without skipping a beat.

Over the next month, Cowan had his share of growing pains as well, as the Bruins lost four straight games, including a last- minute heart-breaker against No. 11 Notre Dame. After their fourth loss against No. 10 California, coach Dorrell called upon his team to forget their record and think of their upcoming games as a new season. His strategy paid off, as UCLA rebounded with victories over Oregon State and Arizona State. However, two wins weren ' t enough for anyone to give the Bruins a realistic chance going into their annual showdown against crosstown rival USC. The Trojans were ranked No. 2 in the BCS poll and looked to be a shoo- in to the National Championship game. Behind an inspired effort by Cowan and the Bruin defense, UCLA shocked the nation by pulling a 13-9 upset against the Trojans, ending use ' s seven game winning streak against the Bruins. " I know how important this is to the Bruin family, " Dorrell told the Daily Bruin. " It ' s been a long time coming. It ' s special. " UCLA looked to ride the momentum from their big victory over the Trojans into the Emerald Bowl against Florida State. However, costly mistakes, including two interceptions and a blocked punt, resulted in a 44-27 loss. Still, the future was as bright as ever, as the Bruins would lose only three starters to graduation. Combined with Dorrell ' s best recruiting class to date, UCLA would be a serious threat to contend for the Pac-10 title and a BCS birth next year. - story by Behjarmr Vim. by Benjamin Yim As one of the oldest sports in UCLA ' s storied athletic history, Bruin football has a rich tradition full of championship teams and Hall of Fame coaches and players. Though the sport officially began in 1919, UCLA didn ' t achieve national recognition until the legendary Henry " Red " Sanders became head coach in 1949. In the nine years under Sanders, the Bruins accumulated a 66-19-1 record and claimed the programs-only national championship in 1954. The Bruins went 9-0 that season, including a 34-0 shut out victory over USC, and were voted United Press International National Champions. Over the years, UCLA has sent its share of players and coaches to the NFL. Four Bruins have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including three-time super bowl winner Troy Aikman. Numerous coaches found success in the NFL as well, such as Dick Vermeil and Terry Donahue. Vhile he was head coach of the Bruins in 1976-1995, Donahue set the all time conference win mark, with a record of 151-74-8. He led the Bruins to 13 bowl games, and at one point had an NCAA record eight bowl-game win streak. With talented players and coaches establishing a tradition of excellence, it ' s of little wonder why the Bruins are able to compete at such a high level year after year. w ■■i Below: Junior defensive tackle Brigham Harwell and seniot defensive end Justin Hickman celebrate after a crucial stop against Notre Dame.

One of these starters, freshman forward Lauren Cheney, recorded her first goal of the season against the fourth-ranked Texas A M Aggies, a game-winning strike within the final minutes of the game. Game-winning heroics became Cheney ' s specialty as the eventual Pac-10 Freshman of the Year award recipient amassed seven late-game goals. Despite the loss of notable leadership of co- ( aptain senior defender Mary Castelanelli and senior midfielder Caitlin Ursini, the young Bruin squad was buoyed by the offensive prowess of Pac- 10 Player of the year Danesha Adams and the impenetrable defense of sophomore Erin Hardy. By the end of the regular season, the Bruins ' home record was the picture of perfection at 12- 0-0, a statistic that was especially noteworthy considering that Drake Stadium would be the location for post-season play. As redshirt junior midfielder Stephanie Kron so eloquently told the Daily Bruin, " This championship for us is about the team. It ' s not about one girl scoring more goals than another or getting more playing time, it ' s about making it to December 3 and that final game and coming through with that 100th championship. " The Bruins made a deep run into the NCAA tournament, reaching the Final Four for the third concecutive year. However, the Bruins faltered in the quarterfinal match as they lost to the North Carolina Tarheels 2-0, leaving UCLA still looking for their first national championship. Although they came up two games short of their goal, the consistency and passion with which the Bruins played indicates that UCLA will be in contention for a national title for years to come. story by Ellen Park.

Deci d s by Benjamin Yim Though it ' s only been an official Di ision-l sport for 14 years, UCLA women ' s soccer commands a high level of prestige and respect that rivals any school in the nation. Beginning in 1993, the Bruins hadn ' t had a losing season, posting an impressive mark of 214-55-15. The team captured seven Pac-10 championships, including a fourth consecutive title in the 2006 campaign. In ten NCAA tournament appearances, the Bruins advanced to the championship game three times, though they had come up empty on each occasion. The Bruins especially gained additional media attention under the tenure of seventh- year head coachjillian Ellis. UCLA finished the season ranked in the top- 10 in each of the last six seasons, which were accompanied by deep runs into the NCAA tournament. Numerous Bruins had also earned All-American honors, including alumni defenders Kendall Billingsley and Jill Oakes. Many current student-athletes also enhanced their play by competing on national and youth national teams in addition to their collegiate careers. Though the Bruins have yet to claim a national title, with the second ranked recruiting class in the nation, UCLA laid the foundation to be a powerhouse year after year in NCAA competition. With a rich tradition full of all- star caliber players in its wake and a limitless amount of potential ahead, the success of the UCLA women ' s soccer team was only a taste of great things to come in the program ' s future.

By combining the experience of returning veterans and the number 1 ranked recruiting class in the nation, the UCLA men ' s soccer team generated tremendous amounts of hype entering the 2006 season. The excitement over what the Bruins would be capable of was enough to vault them to the top of the polls by College Soccer News. Returning players included senior defender Kiel McClung, senior keeper Eric Reed, sophomore midfielder Sal Zizzo and senior defender Brandon Owens. Though new to collegiate ball, the freshman class was stacked with experience, as many members were involved with U.S. Youth National Teams or played for elite high school teams. Though half the team was comprised of true freshmen, the Bruins wasted no time forming bonds of trust and teamwork that would help them pick up crucial victories late in the year. This camaraderie became even more important when five Bruin starters went down with injuries early in the season, including a season-ending knee injury to Brandon Owens. Without veteran leaders such as Owens, UCLA looked to its talented freshman class to lead the team to a potential fifth-straight Pac-10 Championship. Despite these setbacks. Coach Salcedo said that the team " relished the opportunity to compete against some of the top teams in the country. " The freshman responded courageously, playing beyond their years and experience and would virtually be considered veterans after their first season as Bruins. The regular season started with a tie against Cal State Northridge and losses to No. 1 Maryland and No. 3 Virginia. The Bruins defeated the Washington Huskies 2-1 in double overtime on a goal by freshman midfielder James Jaramilli. The win was the first in a five-game winning streak that propelled UCLA up the rankings.

Oregon State. This winning streak was disrupted by a loss against Wasliington and Cal but the squad rebounded with a win over San Diego in the regular season finale to finish off the regular season 6-2-2 in its final 10 games. At the end of regular play, eight members of the Men ' s Soccer team were selected to the 2006 Men ' s All Pac-IO team. The leaders of the team -junior defender Mike Zaher and sophomore midfielder Sal Zizzo - both received first- team honors. The UCLA men ' s soccer team finished the season ranked No. 14 in the Soccer America poll and No. 22 in the NCAA poll, and was given the eighth seed the NCAA Tournament. In the tournament, the Bruins showed no signs of inexperience, playing with passion and determination that translated into victories against some of the top teams in the country. In the round of eight, UCLA scored a dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind victory against the top-seeded Duke Blue De ils, punching the Bruins " ticket to the College Cup. The team traveled to St. Louis for the 2006 College Cup and was greeted by fierce winds and harsh temperatures that manv of the players were not accustomed to. Nevertheless, the Bruins were able to avenge an early season defeat by blanking Virginia 4-0 in the semifinals and looked to win the school ' s illustrious 100th national championship against unseeded UCSB. However, despite a valiant effort, the Bruins fell just short of clinching this momentous ictory, falling to the Gauchos 2-1. At the beginning of the season. Coach Salcedo stated, " It will take a lot of hard work. ..and most importantly, selfless attitudes " for the team to ha e a successful season. To think that the Bruins were able to reach the finals of the College Cup with an inexperienced roster, and a season laden with injuries gave insight into the great things that this team is capable of in the years to come. With the 2006 season used as a period of learning and maturation, there ' s no doubt that the Bruins will be back in the hunt for a national championship next year. — story by Benjamin Yim.

Former players ha e made over 2,000 appearances on a U.S. National Team, none of these more famous than the five Bruins that participated in the 2002 World Cup. Led by goal keeper Brad Friedel and defender Frankie Hejduk, Team USA had their best performance in 72 vears, advancing to the quarterfinals. UCLA also produced more professional talent than any other college in the nation. 46 former Bruins had suited up for an MLS team, thirteen of which had won titles. At the collegiate level, the Bruins have had great success as well, participating in 33 of the 39 NCAA Tournaments since the program ' s creation. UCLA claimed the NCAA championship four times, including the 198.5 title in which the Bruins defeated American University in eight overtimes to seize the program ' s first championship. The first three national titles were won under legendary coach Sigi Schmid, who accumulated a staggering 322-63-33 record during his 19-year tenure at UCLA. Schmid ended his career with a 0.810 winning percentage, the fifth best in NCAA history. He was inducted into the AYSO hall of fame in 1996 and went on to coach the Los Angeles Galaxy, winning the MLS cup in 2002. In recent years, UCLA attracted some of the top talent in the nation. The 2006 squad boastsed eleven members that had played on an international team. Such talent was one of the reasons for the Bruins " recent success, winning a NCAA title in 2002 and going deep into the College Cup in 2006. w ith senior Ashley Caldwell and the up- and-coming runner redshirt sophomore Allie Bohannon leading the talented and speedy pack, the women ' s cross country team was bound to cross the finish line at the top. The season started with an intense drive to secure success after the disappointment of last year ' s failure to enter into the championships. This season was Caldwell ' s final Pac-10 cross country race and she was determined to lead her team to the finish line. Emerging runner Bohannon ran close behind in second at the race. Backing them up was a strong group of runners: seniors Allison Hall and Jenna Timinsky, juniors Claire Rethmeier and Monika Rothenburger, sophomore Olga Aulet-Leon, and freshmen Nicole Pennes, Hannah Roeder and Bailey Schutte. Bohannon earned the first All-Conference honor of her career at the Pac-10 Cross Country Championships in Palo Alto, CA by leading the Bruin women to a fifth-place team finish. She finished eighth overall as UCLA ' s No. 1 runner in a time of 20:47. " Allie led the team for the first time in her career and ran over a 25-second PR over the 6K distance, " explained Distance Coach Eric Peterson in an interview after the meet. " It was a huge performance from a young runner and it is something that we are all really excited to see ... I ' m so thrilled for her. " At the West Region Championships Bohannon continued her stellar season by leading the Bruins for the second consecutive meet as UCLA finished fifth overall. Caldwell and Bohannon were honored by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association as members of the All-West Region team after impressive performances at the West Regional Championships. Bohannon improved immensely throughout the year and led the Bruins to success during her first full season running cross country for the UCLA. Bohannon finished eleventh and Caldwell finished 19th at the West Region meet as UCLA ' s No. 2 runner. The championships marked the end of senior Caldwell ' s illustrious cross country career. Caldwell is one of three Bruin women to ever win Ail-American honors multiple times in the sport and the only to do it in non-consecutive years. Prior to the Pac-10 Championships, Caldwell had been the No. 1 runner for UCLA, earning All-American honors in cross country and outdoor track last season. The rest of the UCLA lineup was comprised of sophomore Olga Aulet-Leon (46th, 22:36) and seniors Jenna Timinsky, (47th, 22:37) and Allison Hall (51st, 22:44). Despite the successes at this race, the women ' s cross country team fell short of their goal of qualifying for the NCAA Championships for the second straight year. The season, though, was still successful and the team ' s drive to race to the top had been bolstered by the end and they are now determined more than ever to capture a championship for the next season. story by Michele Pham.

Women ' s water polo has been UCLA ' s most dominant sport, despite its recent birth. The program was instated in 1995 under head coach Guy Baker.

Baker added to his legacy by leading the UCLA women to national championships for three consecutive years, from 1996 to 1998. During this span, the Bruins accumulated a record of 95-3, and were lead by the play of career goal leaders Coralie Simmons and Catherine von Schwarz. When Baker left the program after the 1998 season, current head coach Adam Krikorian picked up where he left off, winning fi e national championships in eight years, including back-to-back titles in 2001 and 2006. The 2005 Bruins were possibly the greatest women ' s water polo team in collegiate history. Led by Natalie Golda, Kelly Rulon and Thalia Munro, the Bruins went 33-0 on their way to capturing the national championship. UCLA dominated its opponents, winning games by an average margin of 7.87 goals. The Bruins had the best season ever recorded by any collegiate water polo team and their 33-game winning streak was the longest in NCAA history. Although it was an event only in the past two Olympic Games, former Bruins have played an integral role in helping the L ' S national team medal at each Games. In 2000, coach Baker led the U.S. National team to the silver medal. In 2004, Baker coached a team comprised of seven past and present Bruins that took the bronze.

" We developed into a family and most of them are ... my best friends now. " March echoed some last words of advice to fellow players, reminding them to " push yourself to succeed and do your best but still take a step back to enjoy the short-li ' ed days of college. It all really does go by in one flash. " The number three seemed to be the cursed fate for the men ' s water polo team. Despite their diligent efforts, the team could ne ' er get past being ranked third for the season, coming in third in the NorCal Tournament, third in the SoCal Tournament, and third in the MPSF Tournament. However, despite the rank they placed against other schools, to fellow- students, they were always No. 1. - story by Thoa Nguyen. Front Row: JacoD Mi.:u ' , -- " i. ' .j ' ;: ' . ' . - ' --.

Photographed by Agata Kosmalska, Daily Brum. by Benjamin Yim Since it was established in 1962, UCLA men ' s water polo has blossomed under excellent coaching unparalleled by any other school in the country, attracting the nation ' s top talent year after year. Much of this prestige is due to UCLA ' s first head coach. Bob Horn. Horn served as the Bruin head coach for 28 years, amassing an impressive 487-188-8 record. During his tenure, Horn captured four NCAA titles and 13 league titles, placing him among the UCLA coaching elite. In 1976, he was inducted into the U.S. Water Polo Hall of Fame. When coach Horn retired in 1990, it was doubtful that anyone would be able to match his productivity and prowess. Fortunately, coach Guy Baker stepped in as the new Bruin head coach and continued what Horn had started. In ten years. Baker led UCLA to three additional national championships, including back-to-back titles in 1995 and 1996. Despite his collegiate success. Baker left to become the head coach of the U.S. Women ' s National team in 2001, leaving the door open for current head coach Adam Krikorian. Krikorian wasted little time making his mark on the program, winning back-to-back titles in his first two years at the helm. Since then, he has maintained a better winning percentage than either Baker or Horn with a 138-41 record. Having already accomplished so much and with his best years still in front of him, Krikorian has molded UCLA men ' s water polo into a championship- caliber program that continues the tradition of excellence that it was built upon. .242 athletics Lose Some, Gain Some Right: Sophomore center Chinyere Ibekwe battles for the rebound with an opposing UC Santa Barbara player.

Despite these losses to the team, the Bruins were still able to compete formidably, as the other players gained experience on the court. Led by senior guard Noelle Quinn, the Bruins had a successful season with many wins against schools such as Washington State University and Arizona University. In the first game of the season against UC Santa Barbara, the women ' s basketball team dominated the courts, winning by a score of 87-62. " We did a great job on defense and really focused on our defensive intensity, " head co ach Kathy Olivier stated after their first win. " We didn ' t let up ... We played aggressively, and our offensive boards proved that. Our defense created a lot of our offense. " Junior forward Lindsey Pluimer scored a career-high 23 points in the game. The Bruins played a rigorous non-conference schedule that prepared them for Pac-10 conference play, including hard-fought losses against No. 5 Tennessee, No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 9 Baylor. In their first Pac- 1 game against Cal, the Bruins pulled out an impressive 77-68 overtime win at Pauley Pavilion. Senior forward Amanda Livingston led the Bruins with 16 points and 10 rebounds, recording her fourth double-double of the year. After the game, Olivier commented, " We had great balance. It was a total team effort and a nice team win. " However, the Bruins were unable to keep their momentum as they lost to Stanford the following game. After the upset, they brought things back together as they closed the year with a win against Washington State.

Not only that, but she had ten assists and nine rebounds, making a near triple-double. Defensively, the Bruins limited the Cougars to 31 percent shooting from behind the arc. Quinn ' s and Pluimer ' s excellence both on the court and in the classroom earned them Academic All-District Honors. In order to receive such an honor, they had to maintain at least a 3.2 cumulative GP.- and had to ha e completed one full academic year at an institution. Pluimer, a sociology student, held a 3.68 GPA while ranking second on the Bruin team in scoring (15.9 points per game), third in rebounding (6.0 rebounds per gaine), and first in blocked shots (0.84). Pluimer had started every game since freshman year, and also received first-team Pac-10 All-Freshman honors. Quinn, on the other hand, led the Bruiris in scoring (16.8), rebounding (7.0) and assists (6.0). Quinn had made her way into UCLA records, ranking eighth for 1,699 points and rebounds (757) and seventh in assists (416). Quinn was the third Bruin in the last two years to be drafted. The senior guard was selected by the Minnesota Lynx as the No. 4 o erall pick in the 2007 WNBA draft. She also finished her UCLA career as the No. 4 all-time scorer in history with 1,829 points. There were high hopes for her in the professional league, voiced the Lynx head coach Don Zierden to the Daily Bruin " As a coaching staff we really like her ability to pass the ball and score within the flow of the offense. She is an extremely talented player who knows the game. We look forward to adding her to our solid core of young players. " Overall, the Bruins had a year filled with ups and downs. The season was primarily seen as a building year in hopes that the upcoming years would bring many wins back home. Despite Quinn ' s absence in the following season, there is always a gain. This rebuilding year would only lead to successful upcoming seasons. story by Monica Nguyert. irali.Sk ne icom e(forkr )achDoii werealy to know iolidfoif i» year in linsteli 5 sea Lett: Senior guard Noelle Quinn surveys the court for an open teammate.

The Bruins won the AIAW national championship in 1978. Led by AU-Americans Ann Meyers and Denise Curry, the Bruins won their last 21 games, culminating with a 90-74 victory over Maryland for the national championship in front of an AIAVV record crowd of 9,351 in Pauley Pavillion. Curry ended her career as the the all-time Bruin scoring leader, racking up 3,198 points. Both Curry and Meyers were inducted into the UCLA Athletic Hall of Fame. Recently, many Bruin players found success in the WNBA after their college careers. Among these are Natalie Williams, Nikki Blue and Lisa Willis. Williams was the highest drafted Bruin into the VNB. , being selected third by the L ' tah Starzz. In addition to being one of the league ' s piemiere players, Williams led the U.S. National team to the gold medal in the 2000 Olympic Games. Blue and Willis are the most recent products of the Bruin program. For three years. Blue and Willis were a part of " the Big Three, " along with senior Noelle Quinn, which accounted for the majority of UCLA ' s offensive production. Both Blue and Willis ended their careers in the top ten on UCLA ' s scoring charts and have found success at the professional level. 2008 brings one of the most talented recruiting classes in recent memory to Westwood. Under the guidance of head coach Kathy Olivier, the Bruins will look to continue their success and add a second national championship to their rich history. .246 athletics Another Great Season Cut Short After falling short in the NCAA title game in 2006, the UCLA Bruins looked to return to the Final Four to take care of unfinished business. But it was unclear whether the Bruins would be able to reach such a lofty goal with the departure of two senior starters and star point guard Jordan Farmar for the NBA. The heart and soul of the team was junior guard Arron Afflalo. After withdrawing his name from the NBA draft the previous summer, Afflalo returned to UCLA hungrier and more determined than ever to win the school ' s twelfth national championship. He improved in every aspect of his game, leading the team in scoring and playing tough- nosed, relentless defense. Afflalo earned Pac-10 Player of the Year honors and was named a first team Ail-American by ESPN and the Associated Press. Joining Afflalo in the backcourt was sophomore guard Darren CoUison.

Daily Brum. questioned whether Collison could post the same league leading statistics that Farmar did, but Collison quickly put all doubts to rest. Collison finished the season second in the league in assists and led the conference three point shooting percentage. He also proved to be an outstanding on-ball defender, leading the league in steals and creating numerous fast break opportunities and easy transition baskets. In preparation for what was to be the toughest Pac-10 competition in recent memory, the Bruins undertook a brutal out-of-conference schedule. By prevailing over multiple NCAA tournament-bound teams, including No. 6 Texas A M, Kentucky, Georgia Tech and BYU, the UCLA claimed the top RPI in the country. The Bruins rode their momentum into conference play, achieving a 14- game winning streak. In recognition of their high level of achievement, UCLA was voted No. 1 in both polls for six straight weeks for the first time since their championship season in 1995. The Bruins finished the season 26-5, with their only losses coming on the road.

However, the Bruins still had a relatively easy path to the Final Four, as they didn ' t have to leave California for their first four games. The Bruins defeated Weber State and Indiana to reach to the Sweet 16, where head coach Ben Rowland faced his former team, Pittsburg. The Bruins were able to withstand a late Panthers rally and advance to the regional finals against No. 1 seeded Kansas. With a 24-point performance from Afflalo, the Bruins were able to down the Jayhawks and advance to their second consecutive Final Four. " It ' s a great win for us, " sophomore guard Michael Roll told the Daily News. " We ' re going to the Final Four, which is a great time. But we know what we have to do when we get there. Ever since practice first started, this has been our goal. " Unfortunately for UCLA, they ran into defending national champion Florida in the semifinals. The Gators returned all of their starters from their 2006 championship roster, which was the team to deny the Bruins the championship last year. The result this year was all too familiar for the Bruins, as they fell 76-66. Though the season ended earlier than they had hoped, the Bruins still had a lot to be proud of UCLA won 30 games and reached back-to-back Final Fours for the first time since it was coached by John Wooden, ith no seniors on the team and the No. 1 recruit in the nation incoming, the Bruins would be a favorite to win all in 2008. - story by Benjanvn Yim. by Benjamin m The accomplishments of coach John Wooden during his time at UCLA stand as one of the greatest feats in the world of sports. In his final twelve years as the Bruin head coach. Wooden compiled 665 wins and ten national championships, including seven in a row from 1967 to 1973. Wooden also boasts an NCAA record 88-game winning streak and four perfect 30-0 seasons. He has been recognized as one of the greatest sports figures to have ever lived and is the only indix ' idual to be inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach. Wooden also coached some of the greatest athletes to have e ' er played the game, including AU-Americans Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Wooden is known for more than his championships and winning record, as he is considered one of the great teachers of the game of basketball. He emphasized the growth of his players as individuals as much as he emphasized their growth as athletes. He used this idea as the foundation for his infamous Pyramid of Success. . ' Vlmost 40 years after the Pyramid was first seen, its ideals are still essential to building character and teamwork. At the age of 96, Wooden still finds ways to contribute to the sport in which he has already had so much influence. Wooden is one of the chairmen of the McDonald ' s AU-American game, which annually selects the country ' s top high school talent. And despite his age, he still attends every UCLA home game, where, year after year, he proudly watches the blossoming of the program that he helped to build. •nw Below: Junior guard Arron Afflalo focuses intently on disrupting Cai ' s Ayinde Ubaka.

The always consistent performer of the 2006 season, Jalynne Dantzscher, was forced to retire due to chronic back and rib injuries that had plagued her all of last season. Nevertheless, with the strong freshman class of Anna Li, Ashley Jenkins and Brittani McCullough, Kondos Field was optimistic about the team ' s potential, saying, " The combination we have this year of talent, enthusiasm and heart could see this team to another great year of UCLA Gymnastics.

During that stretch, UCLA dominated their competition, sweeping their opponents in 14 of their 19 victories. Perhaps even more impressive was that the Bruins played their first 15 games on the road. By the time the Bruins returned to Pauley Pavilion for their first home match of the season, the team was battle-hardened and experienced with solid road victories over No. 5 Florida and No. 7 Hawaii. This experience was vital to the Bruins ' success as they entered the Pac-10 season, with looming matchups against Washington, USC, Cal and Stanford, all of whom were ranked in the AVCA top 10.

Since 1965, Banachowski has been the head coach of the UCLA women ' s volleyball team and has left his imprint on the sport, winning six national championships and accumulating 1,004 total wins; the most out of any other coach in women ' s volleyball history. He is widely recognized for his contributions on and off the court, receiving numerous awards and accolades, including the AU- Time Great Coach Award and an induction into the National Volleyball Hall of Fame. In addition to his contributions as a coach, Banachowski has been very influential to the development of the sport. Through the years, he watched the old Division of Girls and Women ' s Sports grow and evolve until the NCAA finally recognized it as an official sport in 1976. Under Banachowski ' s influence, the Bruins have attracted some of the top women ' s volleyball athletes in the world, producing more professional beach volleyball players, All Americans and U.S. National Team players than any other school. Such talent has allowed UCLA to compete at the highest level year in and year out, achieving a 1,004-266 record. They have won a national championship in every decade until the 1990s, including two sets of back-to-back titles. Though the Bruins haven ' t been as dominant in recent years, their return to the Final Four in 2006 is a promising step to recapturing their aura of dominance in the volleyball world. .262 athletics Spike to the Top Senior middle blocker Nick Scheftic leaped up and the Penn State Nittany Lions focused on returning the ball that could make or break their season.

The Bruins entered the tournament riding a nine-match winning streak, but were faced with much adversity.

After sweeping Indiana-Purdue University, Fort Wayne (IPFW) the No. 2 seed Bruins faced Penn State in the NCAA men ' s volleyball title match. Wanting to avoid a repeat of last year ' s heartbreaking five-game defeat to Pepperdine in the 2005 championship game, the Bruins were ready to roar. They swept the Nittany Lions 30-27, 30-27 and 30-27, and clinched Coach Al Scates ' s 19th NCAA men ' s volleyball title. The Bruins started the new season with the loss of key elements to the 2005-2006 championship team, due to the graduation of Dennis Gonzalez, Nick Scheftic, Damien Scott and David Russell. The Bruin s began with a weak 1-4 record. Frustration plagued the team and coach Scates expressed to the Daily Bruin, " I can see improvement, but we have to win these types of matches. We gotta be better. " For the first half of the season, the Bruins were off to a rocky start. The men lost twice to each of their top-ranked opponents, Pepperdine, UC Irvine and BYU.

To coach Scates ' s delight, the talented pool of freshmen was more than ready to step up. Tony Ker ' s brother freshman Kevin Ker became a consistent setter for the Bruins, and freshman Garrett Muagututia had an important impact as an outside hitter. Assistant coach Brian Rofer commented to the Daily Bruin on Muagututia ' s skills, " He ' s always been a very polished volleyball player, there are very few that come out of high school at the level that he plays at. " Riding a three-match winning streak with a sweep over use and a confidence-boosting 3-2 win over second- ranked UC Irvine, there were two games left before the MPSF tournament, and the No. 4 Bruins were optimistic in having another strong playoff run. The Bruins were motivated by a passion and drive to win UCLA ' s 100th NCAA title, hoping to further add to coach Scates ' record- breaking resume. - story by Eric Young. Photograph courtesy ofASUCLA Photography. by Jeffrey K. Cheng When most people hear the words " UCLA " and " dynasty, " they think of a certain wizard and a ten-championships in twelve-years streak his basketball squads put together. What many don ' t realize is that in the middle of Wooden ' s own dynastic period, another UCLA coach was laying the grounds for his own dynasty, which would span five decades. The history of UCLA volleyball has been dotted with some of the greatest names in the sport, such as Karch Kiraly, Sinjin Smith and Doug Partie. But the name that will always be synonymous with UCLA Volleyball is Al Scates. In the 36 years the NCAA has sanctioned a national championship in men ' s volleyball, Scates ' s Bruins won an astounding 19 times — more NCAA championships than most athletic departments can claim. Players have come and gone, and stars have ignited and faded in Westwood, but UCLA ' s winning ways have, largely, remained the same. The Bruins have won championships in fi ' e separate decades, tallied three undefeated seasons, and have run off three-title winning streaks on three separate occasions The Bruins ' latest championship could perhaps have been considered the most unlikely- Coming off a disappointing Finals loss to Pepperdine in 2005 at Pauley Pavilion, the Bruins started off 2006 a decidedly mediocre 12-12. Whispers grew louder as Scates ' s Bruins were mired in a five-year streak of not winning it all, which seemed sure to grow to six. An improbable 14 wins later, the Bruins coolly hoisted their 19th trophy and reminded the volleyball world that UCLA isn ' t going anywhere. r Below: The Biuins huddle up during a break in the action against crosstown rival USC.

The team had a mixed season, experiencing many astonishing highs and a few heartbreaking lows. A relatively young squad, the Bruins picked up five freshman plavers, including top recruit freshman Yasmin Schnack.

Even without tv o of their top players, junior Riza Zalameda an d Schnack. the Bruins quickly swept the Rainbow Wahine 7-0 in all six singles matches and all three doubles matches. The Bruins also dismantled Cal Poly, 6-1, just before heading into the National Team Indoor Tournament in early February. However, the wave of success that the team had been riding seemed to break all too early, as UCLA lost to Northwestern and Clemson, but not before defeating Wisconsin, 6-1. Yet the Bruins took no time to recover from their stumble at the Indoor Tournament. In non-conference play, UCLA again put on impressive displays against their opponents.

Once again, UCLA dominated the following week against UC Irvine, sweeping all doubles and singles matches of the day. " I think our team strength and support gives us an advantage over our opponents, " Wetmore said. " It ' s nice to have the extra support. " Shortly afterwards, however, the team suffered harrowing against ranked opponents Cal and Stanford. The Bruins fought hard against No. 9 Cal, bringing three of six singles matches into the third set, but exentually falling, 7-0. The matchup against No. 1 Stanford, however, scored much closer, as the team led 3-2 going into the last two singles matches, coming within striking distance of the win. Their efforts to upset Stanford fell just shy, as those two deciding matches both wont into the third set and ultimately favored the Cardinal. Opening the Pac-10 on the road against Washington and Washington State, the Bruins displayed the depth of their team without Zaiameda and junior Tracy Lin. Even without their No. 1 and 2 players, the team didn ' t skip a beat, as it shut out both teams, 7-0. Against Washington, the Bruins quickly took a 1-0 lead, winning all three doubles matches. The Bruins would only extend the lead further, as freshman Stephanie Wetmore held a strong 6-1, 1-0 lead until her opponent retired. Sophomore Ashley Joelson added to the lead by defeating her opponent 6-2, 6-2. To seal the win, Schnack, ranked 28th in the nation, also pulled a 6-2, 6-2 victory.

Head coach Stella Sampras Webster has played a major role in shaping the UCLA women ' s tennis program. The sister of ATP great Pete Sampras, Sampras Webster had a highly successful playing career in addition to her accomplishments as a coach. As a player, Sampras Webster was a four-time All- American from 1988 to 1991, only the second Bruin in history to ever achieve that status. She won the Pac-10 doubles championship in 1989 and 1991 as well as the 1990 regional doubles title. In addition to her individual accomplishments, Sampras-Webster lead the Bruins to four straight NCAA top-3 finishes. After graduation, Sampras Webster competed on the professional circuit, where her career highlights include advancing to the second round of the U.S. Open. Sampras Webster accepted the head coaching position after long time head coach Bill Zaima announced his retirement in 1996. Since then, she has guided the Bruins to nine top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, including five top-5 showings. In 2004, Sampras-Webster led the Bruins all the way to the NCAA team championships for the first time since 1991.

With seniors Benjamin Kohlloeffel, Chris Surapol and Philipp Gruendler leading the team, the Bruins were an early fa orite to win the 2007 team championship. As part of UCLA ' s magical title run in 2005, these Bruin seniors were expected to provide leadership and experience to their teammates and set good e. amples for the talented class of freshmen joining the squad. After a year in which he held the nation ' s No. 1 ranking and captured the NCAA singles championship, few could question that Kohlloeffel was one of the elite singles competitors in the country. " Any time he takes the court, we ' re going to have a very good chance of winning, " praised head coach Billy Martin to UCLA Sports Information. " ' [The other players] tend to be a little bit more relaxed knowing that he is up there and most likely taking care of business. " Though he didn ' t begin the season as the nation ' s top player, Kohlloeffel continued where he left off in 2006, by winning eleven straight singles matches. Kohlloeffel dispatched his competition quickly and decisively, leading the Bruins to significant victories over No. 19 Stanford and No. 18 Texas A M, as well as avenging UCLA ' s 2006 quarterfinal defeat by downing No. 14 Pepperdine. Kohlloeffel suffered his first defeat of the season against crosstown rival, No. 9 USC. But Kohlloeffel showed the maturity and leadership that was expected of him and won his next seven matches.

Along with an accomplished singles reputation, Gruendler teamed with Kohlloeffel to form one of the best doubles tandems in all of college tennis. Ranked No. 2 in the pre-season polls, the team of Gruendler and Kohlloeffel was a major asset in securing a match ' s all- important doubles point. The Bruins began their quest for a national championship long before the regular season began, as many players competed in pre-season tournaments and in -itationals. After putting in countless hours of work and training, members of the UCLA tennis team finalh- began the season with seven of their first ele en matches in the Los Angeles Tennis Center. " [Pac-10 matches] make you inore focused; there ' s no room to slack off, " redshirt senior Chris Surapol said. The Bruins took care of business at home, winning all of these matches, but they struggled on the road, losing key matchups to No. 5 Baylor and No. 2 Ohio State. Still, UCLA remained determined to prove that they were legitimate contenders for the national championship. " It ' s going to come down to competing hard, playing well, " Coach Martin said. " There ' s no secrecy about it — we have to play well. " After an initial loss to USC, UCLA went on a seven game winning streak in which the Bruins dropped only two games. Though only ranked no. 10, the Bruins caught fire at the most important point of the season.

ASUCLA Photography. by Benjamin Yim As the sport that won the Bruins ' first national championship, UCLA men ' s tennis holds a special place in Bruin athletic history. The Bruins boast 16 team championships, six undefeated seasons, and the some of the most recognizable names in the history of tennis. Among these are former head coaches Bill Ackerman and J.D. Morgan, as well as professional greats Arthur Ashe andjimmy Conners. In 1971, Conners helped the Bruins go undefeated in the season and capture the program ' s tenth team national championship. After he graduated in 1972, Conners won the Australian Open, captured two Wimbledon titles, and won the U.S. Open five times. During his playing career, he spent a staggering 158 weeks at the No. 1 spot of the ATP rankings. Arthur Ashe played a significant role in shaping modern professional tennis as the first prominent African-American competitor in the sport. During his senior season in 1965, Ashe won the NCAA singles title and was a part of yet another Bruin team championship. Professionally, Ashe captured three Grand Slam singles titles as well as a pair of doubles titles. Bill Ackerman and J.D. Morgan, who have both been honored with the naming of UCLA buildings after them, were the first two Bruin coaches from 1921-1966. During his time as head coach, Ackerman won five consecutive Southern Conference Championships, ten Pacific Coast Conference Championships, and the school ' s first- ever NCAA championship. After Ackerman ' s retirement, J.D. Morgan led the Bruins to another seven NCAA titles. Through the hard work and dedication of players and coaches, the UCLA tennis program has become known for its accomplishments in both the collegiate and professional realms. Despite rigorous tournament days that would last from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the UCLA women ' s golf team saw it only as a small hindrance to their passion. " [Golf] has been the center of everything I do, " expressed sophomore Tiffany Joh. " Although it takes up a great amount of time, it is a great experience to be a part of the team. All of the late nights and early mornings are completely worth it. " Teammate senior Hannah Jun concurred, " Being on the golf team has made the college experience more difficult in the sense that playing a sport requires twice the amount of time. " However, upon recollection of memories over the past four years, Jun added, " But it has taught me so many values that I will carry on with me in life. " Before carrying on with post-college life, Jun and her fellow teammates had to carry their bags all across the nation, facing opponents in various states, including Tennessee, Florida, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. The ladies had the opportunity to travel the whole country from east to west, competing on the nation ' s best golf courses. The team placed third in two tournaments at the beginning of the season, the Mason Rudolph Championship and the Daytona Beach Women ' s Fall Preview, as well as the Texas A M " Mo " Morial Tournament in March. The middle of the season did not go in favor of the Bruins, as they placed eighth, eleventh, tenth, and ninth at the Stanford Intercollegiate, the UNLV Rebel Invitational, the Regional Challenge, and the Arizona Wildcat Invitational, respectively. Despite such setbacks, Joh remained optimistic, explaining, " The most important part of the season is the last few tournaments. " These included the PING ASU Sun Devil Invitational, a match between UCLA, crosstown rival use and ASU, as well as the renowned Pac-10 Championship and NCAA tournaments. High rankings in these games would provide the Bruins with a chance at the NCAA Championships. Along with the help of head coach Carrie Forsyth and assistant coach Alicia Um, the athletes kept their hopes high, with Joh voicing the team ' s overall sentiment, " I know [we] will pull it together in time for nationals. " This prediction proved true, as the Bruins placed second at the PING ASU Sun De ' il Invitational. Sophomore Ryann O ' Toole placed sixth at the tournament at four-under par. The success at this tournament boosted expectations for the remainder of the season A small team comprised of only six players, the team ' s passion for those 18 holes, woods, irons and putters as well as school spirit, united each member into a humble family. " Some of my teammates have become my best friends and I learn from them every day, on and off the course, " shared Jun. Upon graduating, she planned to seek a career in professional golf Her parting words echoed that of many in her class, advising her teammates, " Live up to every single moment and truly take advantage of this unbelievable experience. " She added, " But most importantly, recognize that this is your chance to do something great, " be it putting the ball into the hole, scoring under par, or simply being a Bruin. - story by Thoa Nguyen.

The Bruins returned 23 rowers, including eight out of nine from the team that placed twelfth at nationals in 2006. Led by returning senior coxswains Kirsten Potenza and Megan McQuown, UCLA had both the experience and depth to make another serious run at the NCAA Championships. " It ' s like having a coach in the boat, " commented head coach Amy Fuller Kearney about her two senior coxswains to UCLA Sports Information. " They ' re both natural leaders ... and I have confidence in both of them. " Also returning to the team was 2006 POCOCK All-American sophomore Vanessa Teff After a freshman season in which she established herself as one of the most powerful rowers in the league, Teff brought her strength and natural leadership ability to the third seat of the Varsity eight. The Bruins kicked off the spring rowing season in their home waters of Marina del Rey with a matchup against Loyola Marymount University. UCLA entered two Varsity eight boats, two Varsity four boats, and two Novice crews against the Lions in hopes of getting their rowers as much experience as possible before the fierce competition of the Pac-10 and NCAA Championships. All of the Bruin teams easily defeated the squads from LMU, winning by an average of over 30 seconds per race. " This was a really exciting way to start the season. It is good to see our hard work pay off, " said sophomore Bree Hemingway. " We have a lot of depth this year, allowing us to have good boats in The Bruins rode their momentum into their next race at the San Diego Crew Classic. The tournament annually drew the toughest competition from around the country. This year, the No. 14 Bruin Varsity eight would have to compete against No. 8 USC and No. 12 Clemson in the priliminary race. UCLA ' s second Varsity eight and freshman eight would also face stiff competition from perennial rowing powerhouse Stanford. If the Bruin boats finished high enough in the preliminary races, they would compete the following day in the Grand Finals. With the stakes high and the pressure on, the Bruins pulled through magnificently. All four Bruin boats advanced to the Grand Finals, with the Bruin second Varsity eight and the freshman eight winning their respective heats. In the Grand Finals, the freshman eight continued to impress, as they took first place with a time of 7:06, nearly ten seconds better than second place Oregon State. UCLA ' s Open eight and both Varsity eights also had a strong showing, as they all placed in the top four. With the Crew Classic behind them, the Bruins only had three more races to prepare for the Pac-10 and NCAA Championships. The road to a national title would be a tough one, as the Bruins had to travel to Redwood Shores for the Stanford Invitational and return home for a showdown with No. 8 USC. But with a solid performance at San Diego State behind them, the Bruin rowers were brimming with confidence, and were sure to achieve higher results than ever before. - story by Benjamin Yim. every category.

As the owner often NCAA national titles, UCLA is able to recruit the best players in the nation, and is always in contention for a title. Much of this success can be attributed to former Bruin player and coach. Sue Enquist. From 1975-1978, Enquist played for the Bruins under head coach Sharron Backus.

She had a career record of 93-7 and a 0.22 ERA, both of which rank second in NCAA history. Fernendez also led the U.S. national team to three Olympic Gold medals from 1996 to 2004. In 2004, she and four other former Bruins were members of the " Dream Team " that put on one of the most dominating performances in softball history, by allowing only one run, in Olympic competition. _292 athletics Dominating the Diamond Delhering a solid season in 2006, the UCLA men ' s baseball team opened the season with high hopes.

Sophomore infielder Brandon Crawford was the second baseball player to earn Pac-10 weekly honors this season, capturing Pac-10 Player of the Week accolades for the week of February 12. The team ' s first real test came against No. 10 Cal State Fullerton. After emerging victorious in the first game, the Bruins fell in the consecutive games, 7-4, 7-2. Freshman pitcher Justin L ' ribe went two-for-two and drew two walks and Crawford and sophontore center fielder Tim Miuphy each tallied one double during the rubber match at the Jackie Robinson Stadium, but it was not enough to lift the Bruins to victory. Following the tough and disappointing series loss to No. 10 Cal State Fullerton, the members of the Bruin baseball team had to recuperate and refocus for their next challenge.

Daily Brum continued from page 292... the team rigorously practiced offense, despite the fact that they had already begun to feel the toils of the season with injured team members and worn-out pitchers. The next chance that No. 23 UCLA had to prove their baseball prowess was a matchup with the Rebels of Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi. The Bruins turned to senior pitcher Tyson Brummett to guide the team on the right track. The team then traveled to Mississippi for a three- game series. Despite their best efforts, the Bruins dropped two of the three games. Returning to California, UCLA hosted Long Beach State where the Dirtbags defeated the Bruins 14-1. After six straight losses though, the team proved that fortune could be turned around. These losses were met with five wins and a sweep over Stanford. The return of sophomore third baseman Jermaine Curtis also helped the morale. " It felt great to be back out there, " Curtis said. " The team was excited, I was excited. I missed being out there playing and missed the atmosphere. " Despite the many disappointments of the season, the UCLA baseball team still had high hopes for the future, as they expected many talented recruits. For such a young team, the disappointments of the season were overcome by the experience gained from the hard-earned victories. - story by Michele Pham. Photograph courtesy of ASUCLA Photography. vtt m V liJi; Dating back to its founding in 1920, UCLA baseball has seen its share of star athletes and excellent coaches, but no player has had as significant a social and athletic impact on the world as Jackie Robinson. Robinson ' s athletic talents extended beyond the baseball diamond, as he competed for four Bruin teams during his time at UCLA. In football, he was one of the best punt returners in UCLA history, twice leading the nation in yards per return. Robinson also played on the basketball team, where he led the Pacific Coast Conference in scoring in 1940 and 1941. Though he had to miss most of the track and field season because of conflicts with the basketball schedule, Robinson still managed to win the NCAA title in broad jump in 1940. And in baseball, the future MLB Hall of Famer struggled during his time at UCLA, batting by Benjamin Yim only 0.097 during the one year he played for the Bruins. On April 10, 1947, Robinson signed a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Though he faced some struggles early in his career, Robinson caught fire and went on to win the league ' s first Most Valuable Player award. During his career, Robinson compiled a 0.311 batting average and competed in six World Series and six AU-Star games. On the 50th anniversary of Robinson ' s signing of a major league contract in 1997, every team in Major League Baseball retired his number. No. 42. Robinson was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2005, and in 1981 the UCLA athletic department named the men ' s baseball team ' s new stadium the " Jackie Robinson Stadium, " as a reminder that this great man was once, and always will be, a Bruin.

You were trapped in a unventilated suit. Your sight was blocked, and you didn ' t know where you were going or where the stairs ended in the stadium. E ' en thotigh vou were impaired, you still danced, marching and bear-hugging whomever came your way. Yet you still boogied with your big furry paws; you did your diva strut, and your spirit was high like there was no other day. Now, that was the Bruin spirit. That was what it was like to be the two favorite celebrities of UCLA, Joe and Josephine Bruin. The mascots, along with the yell crew, dance team and cheerleaders made up the UCLA Spirit Squad. In order to become a mascot, students must show off their talent in acting, dancing and improvising for unexpected situations during the audition. After the auditions, the new mascots plunged directly into a series of practices, learning the dance routines and how to survive in a 15-pound fur suit. All Spirit Squad members were required to ha ' e physical training every morning from 7 to 9 a.m. along with the additional evening rehearsals for upcoming events. While hitting the gym at 7 a.m. might seem like a worst nightmare to many students, the Spirit Squad was made up of people who had that exact kind of determination. The experience of being part of the Spirit Squad clearly outweighed the sweat and the pain. Sophomore April Stutes, otherwise known as Josie Bruin, remarked, " It is fun to interact with the crowd without anyone knowing who you are. You get them pumped up and you are the face of UCLA, the person who they like most. " While Joe and Josie were heating up the floor with their sizzling dance steps, the Yell Crew team turned the stadium into a roaring arena with cheers. Having a loud, strong voice was only one of the criteria to be on Yell Crew. .Sophomore Yell Crew member Jil Sager related, " You need to be enthusiastic and able to go to all of the games. You also need to know how to figure out sports and handle situational things. " It was about not only yelling at the tops of their lungs, but also keeping up with the game and leading the right cheer at the right moment. The UCLA Spirit .Squad performed at many home and away games. They also made media appearances and accepted requests from the community outreach programs. Throughout the year, the mascots and Yell Crew drove the crowd wild with their exuberant spirit. When supporting the women ' s volleyball team, third-year psychology student Betty Lee recalled, " [The Yell Crew] makes us feel like we are part of the game. " The Yell Crew and mascots no doubt spread the Bruin spirit everywhere they went. — story by Haze Kwok.

They could be heard practicing as students made their way back to their dorms or apartments after a late afternoon class. Their shiny brass horns glimmered in the light of the sunset and their musical notes filled the air and the bolstered the spirit of UCLA. They inspired many to dance in their seats, and were the reason students knew the words to the Bruin fight song. Clad in blue and gold hibiscus-print Hawaiian shirts at the Rose Btjwl, inside Pauley Pavilion, or in full uniform on the dirty territories of opponents from Long Beach to Notre Dame, the UCLA marching band was the prime example of Bruin zest. The marching band performed at the Rose Bowl for the home games before crowds as large as 100,000 people. They built the crowd ' s energy and enthusiasm by playing UCLA favorites, such as " Strike Up the Band, " written by George and Ira Gershwin specifically for the band, " Sons of Westwood, " and " The Mighty Bruins. " Throughout the game the band kept the spirit up with lively pop and rock hits and led the crowd in the popular Bruin 8-Clap. The band originated as a 50-member ROTC unit under V. G. Powell in 1925. Under the current direction of Gordon Henderson, who had been invoked extensively with other drum corps, brought the drum corps style on campus. The marching band was oiten seen forming letter blocks, concert arcs, pictures, and the UCLA script on the crisp green field. They also practiced and performed music from arious genres. This season ' s field shows included a beach show, a Halloween show, a high school band day, a patriotic show, and a Latin jazz show. The highlight for the 250-member UCLA Bruin Marching Band of the season was the full-band trip to the South Bend, India for the UCLA s. Notre Dame football game on October 21, 2006. continued from page 300... Kirby Hanlon, James Charelte, Rafael Leal, Cameron Crisostomo, Kelly Flickinger.

Especially at the USC game this year, because USC ' s band went on just before us, so when we took the field our fans were that much louder in their support. " The Varsit ' Band brought music and excitement to outdoor and indoor UCLA activities. In the winter, the band played in Pauley Pavilion. Their joyful sound graced all the home basketball games, volleyball matches, soccer matches, student and alutnni rallies, and other special events. They played in the stands at the games and tra -eled with the teams to various cities, enues and states. This dedicated group of musicians has traveled all o er the country, adding spirit to the games of various UCLA teams. The sights and melodies of the Solid Gold Sound of the UCLA Bruin Marching Band will forever envelope and bolster school spirit. The band ' s music lix ' ened the field and pleased the eyes and ears with its unified moxement and its harmonizing music. The musicians dedicated many hours to their tnusic ensemble because of their passion for the music, the sense of Bruin spirit in their souls, and the feeling of accomplishment after a sucessful show. Nothing was better then stepping onto the crisp green football field and hearing the roar the echoing final note of the piece after who knew that no game would be the of the crowd, feeling the breeze while waiting for the a release.

" Vou cant do this lor long — your 18- hour daNS of class-job one-class-internship-job two-club meetings-studying-sleeping (optional), h will end up catching up to you. " Echoing faintly from a tiny black earpiece, these foreboding words kind of miss their mark. Parental clair ' oyance used to strike such a chord with ou, but now that you ' ve emigrated out of their kingdom, the profundity that parental wisdom once had is diminished. In the past four years, we ' ve lived our li ' es like superheroes — replace bullets with final exams and the ability to fly with the ability to stay awake for 48 hours straight and you ' ve got your textbook superhero, masked in an outfit of a typical college student. Somehow, within these campus walls, the dense fog of blue and gold clouds any semblance of logic and reason. Impossible, that caffeine-induced stupors might ha ' e lingering effects on your health in future. Preposterous, that dorm food o ' erindulgence will actually result in lethargy and thighs that are tantamount to said laziness. Absolutely ridiculous, that you can ' t learn ten weeks of material within one sleepless night. Invincibility, ' alid or not, is a shared trait of UCLA students. No fickle obstacle can keep us down: Bruin athletes play through excruciating pain to win one national championship after another, while Hiiiin students work through illnesses to attend e ery review session, every shift at work to pay off their ever-growing student fees. W ithout this in incibility, the stuff that dreams are made of would disappear. Any chance you had in getting an A in Chemistry 153L would dissipate without that confidence that is representative of every Bruin, A defeatist attitude is what supports the ' oices of naysayers, nonbeliexcrs and parents who doubt your infallibility. Invincibility, on the other hand, is the stuff that the 2006- 2007 football squad used to silence critics nationwide to halt the championship run of our detested, crosstown foe. Inxincibility is what motivated you to study ten weeks straight to get an A-l- in Chem 153L. Imincibility is about o ercoming insurmountal)lc odds to succeed; it ' s about believing in yourself enough to carve your own identity in the face of opposition. At the end of the road, we ' re startiirg to witness the effects of four years of mental and ])hysical strain. The circles underneath our eyes are getting deeper and darker. Fatigue hits you at freakishly early hoin " s of the night. But Bruin imincibility is instilled in you and will run in your veins no matter where life takes you. Wait until you see what we did today, proclaims the UCLA homepage. Wait until you see what ' 07 will do tomorrow. - by Ellen Park " TTT .314 graduates Sophie Aaronson Psychology Ani Abcarians Communicalion Studies Maher Abdel-Sattar Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology Meghdi Aboulian Mathematics I Kay Abshier Anthropology Emily Adamson MunrntBiulugr Archana Acharya Sociology Marina Acosta Biology Arsineh Aghakhani Philosophy Sunthree Acosta English Ralph Joliuz Agilpay Chemistry bb I Josephine Aguilar Biachcmi.stn Ainsley Ahern Historv Philosophy Wendy Aleman Ecunomus Erica Alexis Sociology Brian Alfaro Ecolopy.

" five-year veteran of the UCLA Spirit Squad, Green has delighted in leading the yell crew and even had the chance to perform as our beloved Joi Bruin. Green reminisced, " I had a great experience always being on the cou on the football field. You just have a lot of fun. You get to make up a lot of veirc cheers. " Certainly, his unique " crescendo " cheer took some time to break in, bui Bruins were always ready and willing to rally behind their fellow spirited Bruin. For Green, fostering school spirit was also another way to give back to the university. Additionally, through his role as a Resident Assistant, his participatior in Unicamp, Campus Tours, and much more. Green taught students to explore to find things they enjoy, and to meet new people. " I ' ve learned that part oft ■H| reason that I feel that I was successful at UCLA was that I had people to show m H the opportunities and the ways to get involved at UCLA. [What I do] is rewardi: I M tfHRIi k. because I see these kids grow up and learn to bi I B f independent, " he shared.

Green replied that someone very much like SENIOR OF THE andrew gree E YEAR story by Joyce Chen bhotography by Christal Thavincher design by Victor Yee m: % himself had inspired him during his earher years as a Bruin, to work hard in all aspects and to positi ely influence the community. This mentor was Brian Chan, a 2005 graduate and former Yell Crew member, also a Senior of the Year Award recipient. | This spring, armed with a Bachelor of . rts in communication studies, and minors in Italian and environmental studies, Green takes leave of UCL. . with hopes of culinar school, living abroad, and the companionship of a furry feline friend. Eventually, he ' d like to go to graduate school, and even own lS very wn restaurant. -«? Even with these exciting adventures ahead, Green admitted that he ' ll definitely miss the people at UCLA, the people that he enjoyed being with, and the people that inspired him to do better. As for parting words, Green wanted tu remind Bruins to view college as a journey rather than a stepping stone to a job or to graduate school. " If you relish the journey, the experience. of.cpjlegp: for all the fun and rewarding times, " he said, " then you will be preparing yourself for whatever you will do.

Through his four years, he did not waste one second, doing ever) ' diing from research presentations to teaching at a Christian Sunday school to studying KI-67 protein expressions in brain tumors. With an ever-growing resume, Eskander could be considered as a well- rounded Bruin, despite his rigorous academic pursuits. E ' en with his brains, he attributes his successes to " innate perse ' erance and sheer determination. " Eskander conducted se en research projects and counting, presented and won top prizes at more than ten research presentations nationwide. He also directed and o Trsaw the adxancement of the Neuroscience Undergraduate Society from a nieasiy group of ten to more than 100 students, from philosophy to English majors. His natural leadership skills created new programs for NUS, including luncheons with professors to discuss topics fiom neuroscience to NCAA Basketball, undergraduaCfteentoring, InterAxon (a program to educated and raise interest iii neuroscience in secorKJan-school students), as well as an annual brain dissecrion to increase interest about the brain and its functions in students. Other leadership positions Eskander held include being one of nine students chosen to be an Honors Felloxv in charge of social events connecting students and professors in the program, writing inteniew articles as editor of the UCL.V Undergraduate Science Journal, a television program host for UCLA T ' . and arious on-campus housing positions. Though he may have seemed like a neuroscience nerd with fluency in three different languages, including Arabic and Spanish, Eskander put his knowledge into good use to ser -e UCL.A and the greater Los Angeles communit ' . He served as a campus tocU ' guide for Middle Eastern dignitaries as well as young students of minorir ' backgrounds, encouraging the students to start thinking about higher education. He was also an on-call Arabic translator for the UCLA Medical Center, as well as an honored Xblunteer of the Year recipient in 2006. ThrougK his love for science, he founded and directed science-based programs for junior high kids in San Gabriel Valley, tutored for .AAP, instructed studeMs and college faculty in first aid, and still managed to sell newspapers for the Daily Bruin as a member of the sales entry deparment. ith his many accolades and activities paving an unobstiucted path to success, he is set on completing a future M.D. Ph.D. in Neuroscience, then practicing medicine as a neurosurgeon and sharing with posterity his knowledge and love for the brain. - slmy by thoa ngiiyen, photography hy fushar ranjan, layout by kiistine paiL li _340 graduates Priyanka Doshi Psychobiology Brett Douvros English Jennifer Drader euroscience Kunti Dudakia Communication Studies I ) omen ' : Studies ) k Anna Dunton-Gallagher Psychobiolugy Jimmy Duong Hislorv Nikkianna Dyer Sociolosv Kimhuong Ear Economics Art History I I i 1 ( Mohammed £1 Shorafa . eurosdence Caitlin Engler Spanish Michelle Esmaeili Pivc wbiuluer Morvarid Emamy Psrchohiolosiy Andre Encarnacao Computer Science and Engineering Jennifer Eng Biochemistry Hasti Ershadi Psychology Mario Escobar Spanish Literature Chicano Studies Christina Eskridge Spanish Monica Esparza Phdosopliy Lydia Espinoza Art History Jennifer Esser Biology graHiintps " 3xr .342 graduates Ivan Estrella Clucana and Chicano Studies Sol Eun Applied Mathematics Maire Camille Evans Psychology French Jonathan Everette Global Studies and International Development Studies Daniel Fabbri Computer Science and Engineering Caristina Fan Bioloav Yeng Kai Fan Philosop iv Vanda Farahmand Biology Alexander Fay Historr Arash Fayzzadeh Applied Mathematics -■V I Daniel Federoff , Iiilfi ' iiiiliiiiial Dnelupinent Studies Rebecca Feelber Biology Emily Feher Psychology Christopher Feia Communicalion Studies Rana Feidi Bwehemistn Cinthya Felix English World Literature Spanish Literature Katherine Felsburg Communieatutn Studies Jennifer Fernandez Physiolosical Science Christopher Fields LhiliisHphy Michael Fischer Political Science Alisha Flecky Cilohal Studies Aleyna Fong Psychobiology grnHii.HP ' : " 333- _344 graduates Jason Fong Economics Juliette Forero International Development Studies Shaina Forsyth Engineering Geology Daimler Francisco English Ashley Franco Political Science Wilma Franco Political Science Chicana and Ckicano Studies Elana Franko Psychology Monique Friedl Women ' s Studies .Vkai Ivette Fullerton Communicatiim Studies Joey Furutani Asian American Sludies Julianne Fylstra Neuroscience Histury Lauren Gabbaian Psychology I Aykanush Galadzhyan Fiditieal Seienee Viviana Galea Applied Malhenialies Christine Galido Internaliiinal Dnelopnienl Sludies Lourdes Galindo Chicanii and C.hicano Studies Eric Gallardo . uisin J Erica Galvan Builugj Ashley Gamayo Biueheniistr) ' Thomas Gamboa Alusic Edueation and Music Perfnrmance grnriiintp-;

As an aspiring filmmaker, Dickau hopes to " [bring] misunderstood issues to public light and [spread] awareness through the most powerful artist medium in America today. " To Dickau, each person carries an individual tale waiting to materialize and to " internalize [their] history, emotion and opinion is to disrespect it. " As preparation for his narrative career, Dickau participated in the largest philanthropic event on campus. Dance Marathon. Dickau progressed from a mere volunteer his first year to Media Director by his third year, assembling a series of visual media to create educational videos and documentaries. These were presented at the event to raise awareness and to educate students on pediatric AIDs. Dickau also climbed the hierarchical ladder of the Daily Bruin Arts Entertainment section from a beginning contributor to assistant editor of A E and editor of the film and television sections. In addition, Dickau helped film, write, direct and produce numerous student films for the UCLA Film school. However, living in the crux of America ' s entertainment industry, Dickau extended his skills to various distinguished film companies, including Miramax Films, where he aided with production-related tasks, and Paramount Motion Pictures, where he served as an assistant to their editor in the KNOW HIV AIDs Screenplay Competition. The short !► Camir , Originality film, titled " Black Book, " won the competition, and was aired on MT ' . Dickau recalled, " The facilities were awesome, the people were great, [and] the en ironment ... was spine-tingling. " His many other invoh-ements with film include being a movie critic for, an affiliate of PBS, and an intern at Participant Productions, a company that shares his interests in informing the community about social topics and produce brutally honest films, such as An Incomenient Truth and Fast Food Nation. With his months as a Bruin dwindling down, Dickau decided to become an orientation counselor in his third year, in order to share his feelings for UCLA with the incoming class of 2010, in the hopes that he would inspire greatness in them as well. Dickau has pre ' ailed the daunting factor of being student number 123,456,789 in UCLA ' s database by taking hold of the campus ' tremendous opportunities. " We may be large, but we are diverse, " he commented. This diversity presents " thousands of experiences, points of view, [and] brilliant minds. " His years at UCLA pro -ided him with many opportunities around each corner. Many chances to learn. To share. To change.

Through devoting her time to giving back to others, being involved on campus and in the community, and exemplifying the pride of UCLA, Elina Mnatsakanyan has embodied these ideals. As a political science student with an American politics concentration, she had far-reaching goals for the future. Vith a Russian studies minor, she v ished to iinproxe her fltiencv in the language and understand the culture of its people. However, Mnatsakanyan wanted to do more than just study; she wanted to give back to the community through various means of olunteering. " Coming from a low- income family, I ha -e personally learned the positive impact others " donations and time can have on individuals in need, " explained Mnatsakanyan. As a result, she participated in and organized a variety of events by donating giving back to U C I a time to the Los Angeles Food Bank. UCLA Dance NLuatlion. Habitat for Humanit) ' , Red Cross, UCLA Mobile Clinic, Y VCA. Rexlon Run Valk, and numerous other programs, . side from donating her time to organizations, Mnatsakanyan also pioneered the establishment of Project Fairy Godmother at UCLA. This project, aimed to aid dis- ad antaged teens, funds prom for high school seniors in the greater Los Angeles area. Girls from low-income families were given the opportunity to gel a free prom dress, a prom ticket and other ser ices. Another program Mnatsakanyan launched is the Hi5 2400 Test Prep that collects test preparation materials and donates them to libraries of low-income area high schools, giving the chance for some individuals to improve their performance and eventually increase their prospects of going to college. Even though Mnatsakanyan dedicated more than 20-hours to service a week, she has was able to maintain a commendable GPA. Tim Groseclose, a professor of political science, described Mnatsakanyan as " one of the most bright, mature, friend, and hard-working undergrads [he has] ever encountered. " The lessons that Mnatsakanyan has learned at UCLA have been more than scholastic. UCLA has taught her the importance of diversity by exposing her to the benefits of learning from others, being able to see various points of view, and being tolerant of others ' opinions and beliefs. Before she resided in Glendale, she, her twin sister, her brothers and her parents moved to South Dakota from Azerbaijan. There, she experienced racism and isolation, which made it difficult for her to find her niche in society. Despite the past, Mnatsakanyan has grown to become an individual who has utilized every opportunity given to her. She advises e ' eryone to make the most of their time at UCLA through studying, joining student organizations, giving back to the community, but most importantly, to have fun. For Mnatsakanyan, UCLA has made the past four years the happiest, productive, educational, and successful years of her life, and is proud to be called a Bruin for life. =- story by Monica Nguyen photography by Christal Thavincher design by Marissa Gilman plina mniif ' 38r .382 graduates Jennifer Menjivar Linguistics Psychology Jacqueline Messiha History Mouna Mikati Biochemistry Stephanie Mikus Psychology Jessica Miller Communication Studies Steven Miller History Tobias Miller Business Economics Joshua Mills Women ' s Studies Ranjan Misra Electrical Engineering Manami Mizuno Political Science Jun Mizutani Alicrobiologr, Immunology and Molecular Genetics Elina Mnatsakanyan Political Science Ilona Mnatsakanyan Psychology Shahriar Moghadam Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics Shirin Moghtanei Biology Alexandra Molina Latin American Studies Fausto Molina English Alan Montemayor Chemical Engineering Oliver Montes Electrical Engineering Hilda Montes De Oca Political Science o;raHlintp.a_ " 3B3 " .384 graduates Michelle Montes-Romero Political Science Chicana and Chicano Studies Amy Moore Psychology Maricela Montoya Sociology II Kwon Moon Business Economics Catherine Moore English Christie Moore English Jonathan Moon History Helbert Moradian Civil Engineering I ct ( RanH Moran Shahrza K " mater Psych Cjrra Sean Morishita Amy Morrin Business Economics j Economics ' uates Charity Morris Sociology John Morris Theater Randy Morrison Biology Duncan Morrissey Psychobiology I Dalynna Moser Global Studies Manuel Moya Political Science Claire Moss History Political Science Anita Mossaband Psychology Shanna Movahedzadeh Sociology Taryn Muchnick Political Science Megan Mugerditchian Astrophysics Karl MuUer English aHiiatps " 3B3 " -386 graduates Mabel Munoz Sociology Nami Murase Business Economics Ariel Na Molecular.

As ihe ice presidcui ofthe Phi Eia Sigma National honor society, a Residcm Assistant, and a fitness instructor, Park was still eonniiendably able to commit a substantial amount of lime to her undergraduate research endea ors while still balancing her undergraduate and graduate education education in urlian schools.

E cn though lie did feel overwhelmed at times, he realized that his acii ilies were a part ofhini. His drive to get in ol ed came from the people he worked with. Those he shared his activities with were " like famih. Vou can ' t abandon family. " foriTi of fencing, kendo, has been an important part of Clhen ' s growing experience here at L ' CLA. For the past four years, his schedule has ijcen dotted with hours of kendo jMactice. This sport has truly become a passion for him and his proudest achicxement was being a part of the national kendo team at Harxard. Their dedication and sweat- soaked garments paid off as the team was met viih success as they upset many lop teams on the East Coast. Chen entered college as a student who knew little about his culture l)ut his experiences here through the years ha e changed him. The dixersity at L ' CT . urged him to delve into his culture. CHien taught English in a small illagc that was left half-destroyed by the typhoons in Taiwan and last summer he worked in Taipei, What started as a wish to learn Chinese, nior]jhcd into something more thai festered his interest in other Asian cultures. This interest ultimately led him to his Asian humanities minor. Despite being so active on campus and in residential life, Chen still managed to maintain a very impressive GPA of 3.77 and a focus on academics. He pinpoints the origin of his engineering passion to his inquisitive childhood and the television show, Modern Marxels. He was fascinated how such amazing concoctions were able to lie built from ordinarx ' objects and since he was a strong math and science student, he decided to go into engineering. Despite the rigorous and demanding courses, C ' hen stayed with his choice because of his passion for the field. He explained that the difficulty was meant to " test your character and help you decide if this is what you really want to do. " Through his induction into Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honor society, he was able to meet other engineers that shared his same interests. " It was refreshing to see people who are passionate about engineering. Their upbeat attitudes made me really want to be here. " Being a UC L.A student has enabled Jeff Chen o be able to pursue studies and actixities that xvill help him toxvards his futuie endeaxors and dexelop him as an accomplished indixidual. His search for something mcjre in life and to be constantly improxing as a pers(jn has guided him on the correct ]:)ath towards success. - [! story by: michele pham photography by: eric young christal thavincher designed by: mark landig _410 graduates Adriana Streifer English Noriyasu Suhama Political Science Atsushi Suda Business Economics Setsuko Suga Geography Kalen Sullivan History Geography Ashley Sun Biochemistry Jenny Ju Hea Suh Sociology Jennifer Sun Ensliih I li Shi i Shirin Tahmasebi Political Science Tina Talebi Political Science Izabel Tahsini Psychology Lok Ming Tarn Geugraphy Hiroko Takahashi Neuiuscience Yu Man Tarn AIcitlicDiatia Keiko Takamiya Ecoiiumics Michael Tan Hiitury Kaori Tanaka Psychuluiiy Jennifer Tang Ecunotnics Jie Tang Electrical Eiigiiurring Joyce Tang History East Asian Studies Lri-iHiinu: TTT -412 iiTacliia Wing Shan Tang Communication Studies Nicha Tantipinichwong Physiological Science Anne Tasaki Biology Ashley Taylor Anthropology Diana Tehrani Biolosr Sandy Tejeda American Literature and Culture Barbara Tejeda-Tellstrom History Stephanie Tennant International Eionomic, I i Mid m B Jl l P9ri i B Michelle Thomsen Kristin Thorpe I ' iililical Science Leslie Tieu Biobii ) ' Shanna Tillman Psyclioliigv H 1 Ht-.

Despite her demanding course load and her two minors, education and public policy, this year ' s Senior of the Year not only found time, but made it her priorit - to give back to the connnimity. As an a id sports m fan, an enthusiastic guide and a passionate m m teacher, this senior had truly disco ' ered the heart of UCLA. During her years at UCLA, her interest in public policy enticed Lo to participate in the Center for American Politics and Public Policy Program in Washington D.C. Vhile studying at the nation ' s capital, she composed a research paper entitled " China ' s One Child Policy: Gender Equality or Institutionalized Inequality? " This paper was later presented at the University of California Undergraduate Research Conference. After such a rewarding experience, she started working as an assistant for the CAPPP program and conducted research for Professor Joel D. Aberbach. Her o n honors thesis was concentrated on the " Impact and Comparati e Analysis of the Vorld Bank ' s Support of Education Development in India and China. " Lo ' s passion to help Chinese orphans developed when she worked full-time at the Changsha Social Welfare Center and Children ' s Home.

Through a joint effort with the China Care chapters froin Harvard and Emory, Lo helped raise money in order lo sujjport a children ' s home in Sai Qi through letter-writing campaigns and a major jshilanthropy c ent. During her senior year, Lo worked as a first grade teacher ' s aid at the 54th Elementary School in South Los Angles, where she assisted high-risk children at this Title I school. Her days started out early in the morning, assisting with lesson planning and organization, and sometimes delivering lessons. Her experience as a teaching assistant made her realize her wish to improve the school system and to help kids develop to their potential. " These kids show me how much every student has to offer. If you develop the skills and the talents, everyone has the potential to attend a university like UCLA, " Lo attested. Full of Bruin pride and spirit, Lo was a regular at UCLA basketball games and campus activities. When asked about her proudest achie ' ement, despite her many activities and experiences, she smiled and simply replied, " My friends. Making the friends that I ha e.

Ellen: Oh, my older half It was such a comfort having you around to shine light and provide wisdom when most needed. I can ' t imagine BruinLife and my life without you, it ' s practically blasphemous. I don ' t know what else to say except that you are the true BruinLife veteran.

You ' ve worked hard, and you deserve a pat on the back. Yeah, J.D. Drew and Michelangelo! Ben: You probabh ' know everything I have to say to you (a.k.a. all tiiat I owe you), and a two-fine thank you at the back of a yearbook we both sacrificed so much to complete cannot do justice to all that you ' ve been to me. .So I ' ll say this one thing, not that snails suck or that you ' re stupid, but that we ' re not done yet, and the upcoming year is going to be beyond awesome. The kev fies in you, as I ' ve believed all along.
