For this fall semester, proctors and mentors met for lunch meetings in the Aviation room of the Hoch every other week.

November 20, 2015, by Ramita Kondepudi

 31 miles. Blood. Sweat. Tears. Last Saturday, on November 14th, my friends Lillian, Richard, Anji and I embarked on a 31 mile bike race across the LA Basin.
