New Bruin Send-offs

Send Them Off Right. From July - September, alumni networks worldwide host New Bruin Send-offs to welcome incoming students and families to UCLA. Ranging from backyard gatherings to potluck picnics, these events showcase the reach and strength of the UCLA community, provide a space for students and parents to ask questions and give alumni a chance to share their UCLA experience. Attend a Send-off near you!

'84 Olympics

Bruin Stories: When I Volunteered in the '84 Olympics
During the summer of 1984, UCLA opened its campus - and its heart - to the Games of the XXIII Olympiad. UCLA’s central location, top notch facilities and plenty of space for athletes and spectators made it an ideal setting, and gave these Bruin volunteers a front-row seat for all the excitement.

Alumni Spotlight: Mike Nguyen '95, M.B.A. '02
How does the first Vietnamese-born, non-kicker to play Division I football go from scoring a touchdown in the 1994 Rose Bowl, to becoming an economics and financial analyst for high-stakes legal cases? Hard work, intelligence and the help of a mentor.
