Bruin Helpers: We See You

When Mr. Rogers was a boy and he would see scary things in the news, his mother would say to him, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” We followed that advice and found some generous, "heart-working" and heroic Bruins who have stepped up to meet this moment. Read their stories and help us find more Bruin helpers.

UCLA in the 2000s

The decade that brought us 9/11, the War on Terror and the Great Recession also launched UCLA’s Block era, built the No. 1 hospital and health system in the West Coast, and became the most applied to school in the country. If you were on campus for this decade, take a walk down memory lane, or see what you missed.
