Dinners for 12 Strangers Cheers to 50 Years. What began as two dinners near campus has now grown to more than 400 worldwide. It came into being in the late 60s during a time of challenge and promise, and continues today with food, fun and Bruin camaraderie. The formula remains the same - arrive as strangers, depart as friends. Hear from longtime hosts and guests why Dinners for 12 Strangers is one of the most popular (and most copied) Bruin traditions. Then sign up to participate.
