This fall, UCLA will welcome the most academically accomplished class in its history. Racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity also increased with a significant jump in the number of students from groups that have been historically underrepresented on campus.
As an alumni association, we look forward each year to welcoming our new Bruins and their families at New Bruin Send-Offs around the world. This issue is dedicated to the newest members of our Bruin family.
Learn about the newest class of Bruins, which includes students from historically underrepresented groups that make up 34% of all admitted California-resident freshmen — the highest proportion at UCLA in over 30 years.
One of the most important rites of passage for new students, and their families, is attending orientation. Hear from Ryan Darling from UCLA New Student & Transition Programs about what students can expect from orientation this year on the Bruin Family Insights Podcast.
