College and coffee seem to go hand-in-hand in today’s world. However, for people like me, the bitter taste of coffee is just not worth the caffeine boost. On long nights before midterms and finals, I turn to tea to get me through the night.
It is officially midterm season and that means it’s the prime time for sleep-deprived students. Sleep is extremely important for both the body and mind. To balance sleep and studying, students should opt to take a nap instead.
As busy college students, quite often we are very caught up in our busy class schedules and extracurriculars. In this, we are often inclined to stay up late in order to attain a decent amount of studying and cramming in those late night papers.
On Sat April 23, the Cognitive Science Student Association will be holding the 3rd annual Cognitive Science Conference at UCLA, themed The Future of Virtual & Augmented Reality: Mind, Medicine, & Media. The speaker lineup includes professors and researchers who use virtual reality (VR) as a tool to study the mind, improve clinical treatments, or enhance media.
The conference will take place from 11:30-4:30 in Kinsey Pavilion 1220B. Attendees will learn about the diverse applications of VR and have the opportunity to learn how to make their own VR world on their own laptops. During the intermission, attendees can also try on Oculus headsets.
Regardless of major or background, attendees will find this conference interesting, entertaining, and inspiring.
