    Diddy Reise!! The most amazing build-your-own ice cream sandwiches in the world, and its located right in Westwood. Only $2, but the line gets pretty long because its so popular.

    Not the ideal price for a middle class family, I have to admit. Luckily, middle class scholarships are becoming a thing.

    UCLA is really a wonderful university. The price of tuition is a great value for the education received. Housing can be expensive, but it is worth it to have at least one year of dorm life. It makes a student's life so much easier not having to worry about cooking or driving and parking. It also makes it easier to attend events and participate in activities, which are usually in the evening. The campus is hilly, so I like to think of it as a built-in workout :). The campus also happens to be gorgeous; there are a lot of trees and the architecture is unique, especially in north campus. This makes studying almost anywhere on campus absolutely perfect. Studying is enjoyable not only because of the atmosphere, but because you can pick to study something you are interested in from a variety of classes. The professors, in my experience, are so engaging that they make you even more interested in the subject. They have surpassed my expectations. At a big university, I didn't think professors would have the chance to remember students' names or be so available to answer students' questions, but they have been so attentive and responsive. They make learning enjoyable. Even though studying and learning is the main purpose of attending UCLA, it is important to have a support network. People at UCLA are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I often encounter smiles, hellos, and enthusiastic directions when needed. You truly feel like part of a community- a helpful, supportive, nice community. There are also clubs focused on creating smaller communities within the campus (cultural, religious, transfer, etc.). Overall UCLA excels aesthetically, academically, and in extracurricular activities.

    With the tuition the way it is already and the UC Regents passing a tuition hike, the thought of graduating with a lot of student debt gets really depressing, especially because this is a public school.
