Population Pierce: Westwood bound

 

17-year-old Alex Arzoo, a biology major, sits on a bench in the Botanical Garden of Pierce College in Woodland Hills, Calif. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016. Arzoo's parents went to UCLA. "My parents never pressured me into going to UCLA even though my mom hates the Trojans," Arzoo said. "UCLA gives me the feeling of being in a community. It feels like it's own little city in the middle of Los Angeles. It has its own supermarkets, it has its own dormitories, everything exists within it. I love the idea of entering its own little bubble of society for my college career" Photo: Mohammad Djauhari
