March. 5, 2012 “”mdash; Practice makes perfect. And today, we talk to students who have dedicated hours and hours to their goals. Magic is an exclusive art form passed from one magician to another. Third-year history student Angela Sanchez was once a child watching her father conjure illusions. Now she is writing her college thesis on famous women in a male-dominated art during the golden age of magic. To spread her passion, she formed the Magic and Illusion Student Team with second-year biochemistry student Jason Chang and fourth-year economics student John Manion. They discuss how they connect with audiences through illusions that tell stories.
Also, on Sunday, runners, swimmers and bikers took over the UCLA campus for the annual IronBruin triathlon. Nick Handel, a third-year mathematics/economics student, was among the competitors who crossed the finish line. He shares what it takes to sustain his strides over the miles.
