Welcome New Bruins

This summer, Alumni Networks worldwide are hosting Send-off parties for incoming students making their way to Westwood in the fall. From picnics to backyard barbecues, new Bruins and their families can create a support network with other new students, their parents and local alumni, as we welcome them to the UCLA family. Come to a Send-off near you.
