Attending UCLA was a life-changing experience for me. I became fascinated in subject material that hadn't interested me before such as medieval religious and Classical Cambodian dance. I became active in several student organizations, including the Nigerian Student Association, Inner Soul, and the UCLA Sex Squad, a sexual health and AIDS prevention performance ensemble. During my junior year, I applied to study abroad - an opportunity I would suggest any student take advantage of - and was awarded a Fulbright-Hay Group Projects Abroad fellowship to study Arabic in Morocco for several months. My experience abroad was documented in the Daily Bruin, the campus newsletter that's produced by students! I spent my last year at UCLA developing a senior project that I performed in front of my classmates, friends and family. I highly recommend that "you" apply to a 4-year university and pursue what you LOVE. Take advantage of the endless opportunities available to you and don't look back!

I enjoyed the campus life., I felt very welcomed onto the college campus! There are hundreds of student organizations for students to find their community and their passions in. There are many possibilities to get involved and they have tons of on-campus resources, such as the learning assistant program, peer learning facilitator program, and more, to help students with their academic needs, as well as for student employment opportunities. The area surrounding the school is also great for students, and very lively! There are local bars, restaurants, Halloween stores, and even weekly farmers markets down the street.
