With Fall Quarter fast approaching and a fresh start for my own undergraduate experience, I'm curious...

If you could re-do undergrad all over again today, what would you do differently? Academically? Financially? Socially? Or if you wouldn't do much differently, what are some things that you're glad you did?

And for you Bruin alumni, what resources should I take advantage of? What orgs should I get involved in? I've got one more year to make the most of it...

They shut it down?!?! What!? I never got to do that! Was totally gonna try to sneak in this qtr! Hah. Well I guess that would have been one of my re-dos! That and taking my bio classes seriously when I was a bio major (maybe I would have gotten into grad school a lot earlier than I did), not distanced myself too far out from the kiddos below me my last qtr (prolly would have a better social network post grad), and take more advantage of the gym/career center/cto box office (the artsy stuff that comes by on campus is cool and way cheaper for students). Good luck!

FST (Favorite Student Things) #3:
Realizing all the resources available to ANYONE who has any desire to learn just about anything and is disciplined enough for self-study.

Previously I talked about how awesome it is to have access to academic papers and databases being a student at a university. But, aside from Google searches and Wikipedia (or Microsoft Encarta if that's your thing), there are plenty of awesome online courses for almost any discipline you'd find at any university.

Some incredible resources:
The Khan Academy: http://www.khanacademy.org/
Open Yale Courses: http://oyc.yale.edu/
Open Culture: http://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses

And if you're looking for intellectual stimulation in general?
TED Talks: http://www.ted.com/talks

:]

About FST:
Now that I'm back in school after a 2 year hiatus, I can't help but notice the awesome things about being a student that many take for granted. There have been several moments where I've "not known what I had till it was gone." And so I began this series: "My favorite things about being a (UCLA) student" or "Favorite Student Things" listed in order of recognition (not preference).

I can't seem to stop thinking about G+ and how organizing Circles says something about how I view my social connections.

There was an article that made the rounds early on about how to understand Circles, and the most important thing to take from it was that Circles function in two ways:

1) Determining who you follow on your stream. When organizing Circles by people you want to follow and listen to, you think about ways in which you consume information. It's like organizing who you follow on Twitter into Lists.
2) Determining who you share things with. You have to think about what you want to share and with whom. It's most similar to organizing lists and privacy settings on Facebook.

So keeping this in mind, how should you or I organize our social connections in Circles? And how does the way we organize our connections into groups and Circles reveal how we want to be perceived and how we consume? What does it say about how we organize people in our daily lives offline?

FST #1 (in order of recognition, not preference): Access to academic journals and databases!

Just when I thought the internet was an awesome well of knowledge, I realize that the deep internet is a damn ocean. I feel like Scrooge McDuck swimming in the warm sea of golden ideas.

Has anyone tried "Huddles" on the Google+ mobile app? I'm wondering if you can only do it between people who have Android phones...

Attention comic book nerds! I'm working on a final paper for a class and I need your help. Who are some Asian or Asian American female characters you've seen in comics?

FST (Favorite Student Things) #2:

In this day and age, I don't have to worry too much about losing the assignments I write from computer crashes AND I don't have to spend hours on a typewriter or handwriting papers. Thanks to a combination of Evernote, Google Books, and Google Docs (as I don't have MS Office on my computer), my papers are saved in "the cloud."

With Evernote, I can draft up a paper locally on my desktop app (or on my phone!) or online on the site and sync them all up. Instead of buying textbooks, I find the articles I need for reference on Google Books. Then when it's time to format, copypasta to GDocs. There are several copies of my papers all over the place. :]

Sooo.. Which public figures (or even people you know personally) are emerging as people to "follow" on G+? If you had a "Must Follow" circle, who would that include?

Taylor Swift had been announced by +Vic Gundotra a week ago and I think she may have been the first "celeb." Of course, the comments were as expected on that with lots of "imma let ya finish but..." stuff. But lots of techie celebs before that, certainly.
