What’s up everyone!!!!!! My name is Dennis Han and I will be a part of this year’s Zot Blog team! I am extremely excited for my freshman year of college and I hope you are too because you will be going along this journey with me. Originally, I am from Santa Monica, California which is about a 45 minute drive from here. My major is currently undecided/ undeclared but I know that I want to switch into business administration. The business administration major at UCI is very competitive to enter, but with my determination and optimistic approach, I believe that I am capable of getting in.
So far at UCI I have been having the time of my life. New friends, new environment, and even a new home! Since the involvement fair that took place on welcome week, I have attended a ton of club/organization events, hall festivities, and a numerous amount of dance workshops. The events and activities available on campus are too many to count and there are so many that it is impossible to attend all of them. After being here for the last 5 weeks, UCI has been a truly amazing experience with so much do to and so much to get involved with. Most people think that since UCI doesn’t have a football team, students are unable to come together as a community and have school spirit. But I can now tell you that is all false. See, due to the fact that we have no football team, students have used their imaginations and creativity to form all these unique clubs and organizations, so that students of the same interest can find what they enjoy and share their passion with others. Also, ASUCI (undergraduate student government) organizes and puts on awesome concerts and events that students come out to and celebrate every single year. I recently attended Shocktoberfest which was a school sponsored event with special invitations from the Rejectz, Hoodie Allen, and the Newboyz. I found my way to the front while the artists performed and had a blast! Students are offered so many opportunities here at UCI. Anyone saying they are bored on campus surely hasn’t been taking advantage of all the events going on.
This year, I will be blogging about student health and wellness. Oftentimes, students get so caught up in their studies and involvement that they forget how to stay healthy. I know this because I, personally, have experienced it already and know how easy it is to not eat correctly or simply not get enough sleep. I think that staying healthy is the key to being a successful student here at UCI which is why I will be taking on this challenge this year. Join me on this adventure of learning how to take care of yourself while studying and having a blast!
I look forward to blogging more about my experiences here at UCI. Please feel free to leave any comments, questions, or concerns. Thank you and make sure to come back every week for a new post by me. Have a ZOTtiful day.
