The launch for Boom magazine‘s Urban Humanities issue was held tonight in the Perloff Hall Courtyard at UCLA. It was a small event, and most of it involved seasoned academia members standing around drinking, so there admittedly wasn’t a lot for me to do.
Well, there wasn’t a lot for me to do at the actual event itself. But I was at UCLA, and it was really my first time ever being on the campus proper. So, along with a friend from my honors 201A class who was there to attend the launch for some credit, we explored the campus to see what we could see.
And what we could see was undoubtedly beautiful, to say the least.
Though, I do have to say, the place is literally like a small city. Just these places we saw are a fraction of the available things to look at! So, as beautiful as everything was, it definitely strikes me as the kind of place that I’d like to visit and explore rather than the kind of place I’d like to study. But that’s just me.
Seriously though, calm down UCLA. Schools don’t need to be that big.
