The list of things to do in Los Angeles is as long as the city is vast. Los Angeles boasts various aspects of arts and culture, yet finding things to do on a budget can seem like quite the task. I am constantly trying to find new and interesting things in LA while still being financially savvy.
Being an LA native, I’m fortunate to have been surrounded by a somewhat diverse culture. The Huntington Library and Gardens, the Skirball Center, and the Getty are among the few LA cultural centers that have piqued my interest in the arts. Yet, as I’ve grown financially independent, I’m forced to find more frugal means of entertainment.
One of my favorite events in Los Angeles occurs the second Thursday of every month: the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk. The art walk boasts an eclectic crowd of people gathering to explore various galleries, peruse shop street vendors and indulge in some food truck deliciousness!

I definitely recommend going early to avoid the crowds and enjoy exploring the miscellaneous galleries. Read more »

Over this past summer, AJU made a significant leap forward technologically. Within a matter of months, the wireless network speeds increased by 11 percent.
For returning students, the new network’s 40 Megabit connection (that’s roughly six times faster than a home network) speed is most apparent in the dorms. In years past, the dorm network often faltered under our constant use to the point that anything more than basic browsing could be futile, or the network would simply go down, often for indefinite periods of time.
Now, that has changed! Read more »

“Someone may have died in those shoes,” my friend says whenever she sees me with a new (or rather, old) pair of vintage shoes. Well, if the previous owner is dead, I’m sure she wouldn’t mind, because every Angelino, dead or alive, shopped in a vintage store at least once. Read more »
