With a connection to over 500,000 other alumni across the globe, we’re your channel for networking, giving back, engaging and pushing each other forward. With opportunity waiting around every corner, we can turn our potential into exponential growth together.
From events to professional advice, community volunteering to international travel packages, being a Bruin is forever. We offer infinite opportunities to build new relationships and learn from the incredible UCLA community.
As Bruins, we’re uniquely positioned to shake up the world every time we shake hands. And together, we’ll continue pushing one another, the university and students forward by remaining at each other’s side.
