As I’ve mentioned before, I am a Freshman Academy Coach for the Engineering Freshman Academy class. You can check out my blog post about it here, or also read posts by fellow coaches Steve, Lydia, Ryan, and Emily, about their Freshman Academy sections! As freshman academy coaches, one thing we do is plan an off-campus event for our students to attend so that freshmen can see different parts of LA!
We teamed up with three other academy sections for a Beach Bonfire! We rented a big bus, met on campus and then were off to Dockweiler Beach! Dockweiler beach is the perfect place for beach bonfires since parking is relatively easy and there are tons of firepits readily available!
We got there right before sunset, made Smores, brought In N Out for everyone, played lots of beach games and got to hang out with friends in our own academy sections and meet fellow engineers from other sections! Overall it was a great success and a lot of fun to spend a Sunday night at the beach!
