The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. For these four inspiring Bruins, their first steps began at UCLA.
Friday, May 17
Noon - 1:30 p.m.
James West Alumni Center
Free admission. Lunch is provided. RSVP required.
For these four Bruins, UCLA was the beginning of a long and successful career path. Now they return as distinguished UCLA Awards recipients and are gracious enough to share their story with current UCLA students.
The Inspiring Bruins Luncheon gives students the opportunity to engage in a dialog with these highly accomplished alumni over lunch and then through a Q&A panel discussion. They will reflect on how their experiences at UCLA, and their successes and challenges in life, led them to where they are today. Through the lessons learned on this day, our hope is for students to leave with a better vision of their future.
