- Talking to everyone
As an international student, interacting with other students is something that you have to do if you want to enjoy life around here. Talk as much as you can with the people around you. Don’t hesitate to ask about things you don’t know.
- Exercising to unwind
We have an awesome swimming pool at the Lyon Center with a hot tub next to it. There’s also a sauna, which is awesome! That’s a great way to relax. Otherwise, I go hiking. There are some amazing national forests, such as the San Bernardino National Forest.
- Discovering hidden gems
Campus has a lot of nice secrets, like little hidden gardens. In between the buildings for the Thornton School of Music there are parks, benches and trees. The music students are always practicing, so you can listen to music. It’s very cool and relaxing.
- Munching on umami
L.A. has some of the greatest burgers in the U.S., and gosh, they’re good! There is, of course, Umami Burger. You have the crisp, cooked outer meat, and the juiciness of the inside. Then crispy lettuce, a good bun and carmelized onions. It explodes in your mouth!
