Orange County Network

Welcome to the UCLA Orange County Alumni Network. We are a volunteer group of alumni and UCLA supporters who work with the UCLA Alumni Association on campus to support UCLA. We organize various activities and opportunities for alumni to gather, reconnect and support the university, from hikes to concerts to UCLA Athletic events.

We are also dedicated to fundraising and supporting our Alumni Scholarships for Orange County students.

Please join us at our monthly meetings and/or any of the events we host. We look forward to meeting you and greatly appreciate your involvement and support of our organization.

For more information about ways to get involved, including upcoming events, check out our Facebook page or contact our network co-presidents Lisa Ly and Barnaby Wang.
