What Makes You Boundless?
The UCLA Alumnae Conference, held on March 11, was more than a series of interactive sessions facilitated by Bruin women. It was a space for honest and open dialogue, recognizing the challenges women faced personally and professionally. Inspired by the theme “Boundless,” alumnae were encouraged and uplifted by their sisterhood community.
Bruins in the Cannabis Business
Bruins are innovators, so it’s no surprise UCLA alumni are involved in developments in the burgeoning marijuana industry. Featured here are three Bruins who are making their impact in diverse ways and changing perceptions about the cannabis business.
It's Good to Be Gold
Gold Membership with the Alumni Association certainly has its perks. Not only is it an investment in UCLA's future while receiving premium benefits, but it's also like a VIP pass. Here are a few extras we added to the Gold Member experience.
Bruins Honor Legacy of Cesar Chavez
March 31 was Cesar Chavez Day, honoring the nation’s best-known Latino civil rights activist. Taking a page from his advocacy for farm workers' rights and nonviolent protest, UCLA students in the 90s rallied, marched and staged a hunger strike for the creation of the Cesar E. Chavez Department of Chicana/o Studies.
