Through a New Lens

by Sidney Diongzon

Walking around campus on a rainy day, you see things through a new lens: the vibrant colors of the university logo now slightly muted, the peaceful atmosphere between leaves and concrete, and angles from buildings never seen before through puddles. It's quite beautiful actually.

Then the sun shines through, and there is a freshness in the air that revives your spirit. School, work, relationships—all part of the busy Southern California lifestyle—seem to slow down as we look up and appreciate the change of pace.
