A comprehensive list of everything better than UCLA’s wifi
Our tuition is high enough to have decent WiFi
Fun Fact: UCLA invented the Internet. But that doesn’t stop us from having some of the worst WiFi imaginable. Trying to escape the bad WiFi by wandering around The Hill for the best signal is like struggling in quicksand–you only sink deeper in your despair.
Here is a list of everything better than UCLA’s WiFi:
The Death Stairs
The steep stairs after a long day of class are terrible. Hiding how out of breath you are after your climb is worse. But the most heinous part is knowing you’re not going to have reliable internet now.
I've walked up more stairs in these two days at UCLA than I have in my entire life

Having a class in deep North Campus with only 10 minutes to get to one in South Campus
“I can do Broad to Wgyoung in ten minutes no problem”- No, sweetie, you can’t.
Hearing “Attendance is part of your grade” from your 8 am Professor
It’s a Monday, you haven’t slept, you have midterms, and you still can’t skip out because now you need every percent you can get.
Even better, “The final is worth 45 percent of your grade”
Translation: “You’re screwed and the internet can’t help you now, lol sorrryyyy.”
Walking into a class and then realizing it’s been cancelled
There’s no shame like the one you feel after realizing your twenty minute walk, which obviously caused you to sweat like you just ran three miles, was for nothing. But it’s still better than running around hoping for a decent Internet connection.
Losing your Bruincard and finding it after you’ve already gotten it replaced
That’s $25 dollars you could’ve just saved and spent on Kerckhoff coffee you so desperately need in the morning.
I thought I lost my bruin card so went and got a new one, came back from class & lost my new one, realized both are in back of my phone case

Trying to find a seat at Powell the week before finals
You have better luck passing your final than finding a seat in Powell.
Having a class in the Public Affairs building
It’s got the lighting of a morgue and is just as depressing. Not to mention it is literally a whole mile away from The Hill.
Going to BPlate when they’re serving salmon
No matter how long the line gets, your wait for BPlate will be shorter than waiting for Bruincast to buffer.
