No other UCLA tradition generates as much fanfare, nostalgia and excitement as the Beat ’SC Bonfire and Rally. Held the week leading up to the UCLA-USC football game, this celebration embodies not only the rivalry, but also the tremendous spirit of UCLA students, the loyalty of fans and the love of generations of UCLA alumni.
The Beat ’SC Bonfire and Rally assembles one of the largest outdoor gatherings on campus to cheer our Bruins on to victory against the Trojans when they play on Nov. 22.
