Alumni enjoyed the UCLA Centennial Campaign launch festivities. The $4.2 billion fundraising effort, launched as the campus counts down to its 100th anniversary in 2019, is the largest ever undertaken by a public university. An estimated 1,500 UCLA alumni and community supporters attended a Centennial Campaign event at Royce Hall on May 17, which culminated the three-day kick-off that included Thank UCLA Day, Alumni Affinity Reunion and a light and sound projection show on Royce Hall. See what alumni had to say about their experience.
