Spring Sing - May 18, Pauley Pavilion. Get your tickets now for UCLA’s oldest and greatest musical tradition! Since 1945 Spring Sing has entertained generations of Bruins and this year is going to be even more spectacular. In addition to the amazing show put on by the student performers, Linkin Park will be honored with the George & Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement. Alumni Association Gold Members are eligible for one free ticket.

UCLA Awards History
From the first Bruin Nobel laureate, to the first woman to host a TV variety show; from the man who broke the color barrier in professional sports, to the Father of the Internet - the men and women honored with the Edward A. Dickson Alumnus of the Year award were a who's who of UCLA lore. As we celebrate the next generation of dignitaries on June 2, take a look at the legacy left behind by these great alumni.

Bruin Brewers and Vintners
Grapes, grain and persistence led these UCLA alumni to success in the beer and winemaking industries. While each one entered into business for different reasons, they all share a passion for their craft and represent the best of the Bruin entrepreneurial spirit.

Gift-a-Grad Special
Now is the best time to gift a graduating senior an Alumni Association Gold Membership.

Then and Now
UCLA was a much different place in 1938. The landscape, the student body, the whole Southern Branch was still in its infancy. Check out this visual comparison of the campus then and now and test your knowledge of how much you know about UCLA in 1938.

Bruin Recipes
Alethia Shih, M.A. '14, Ph.D. '17 (aka Ala) is a food blogger with a decadent new twist on the classic British Victoria sponge cake. It's the perfect dessert served alone or with a cup of afternoon tea.
