Homecoming at UCLA is a student-run organization supported by the UCLA Alumni Association, working to unite all generations of Bruins through school spirit and traditions. Each fall quarter, Bruins come back to their home in Westwood for a week-long celebration of sports, entertainment, philanthropy and community.
While we are unable to come together to campus this year, we invite you to join us online for Homecoming week and celebrate the Bruin spirit. Our re-imagined virtual events will involve exciting new ways to engage with the Bruin community and bring UCLA to your home.
Homecoming volunteers serve on one of five committees. All members meet weekly throughout the academic year to plan events and programs.
Alumni Relations Committee
Led by the Alumni Relations Director, this committee works to maintain a strong relationship with the UCLA Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Association to promote and increase alumni engagement during Homecoming Week activities. This committee works to bridge the connection between students and alumni to celebrate UCLA’s Homecoming together. They are responsible for creating and developing new alumni-centered events during Homecoming Week and to grow traditional events like the “Bar Crawl.”
Led by the Apparel Director, the apparel committee is responsible for designing, ordering, and organizing sales for all Homecoming apparel. The apparel committee is responsible for keeping track of inventory and sales of all Homecoming T-shirts and other apparel sold, leading up to and through Homecoming Week. All members on the committee do not need design experience, but a creative eye is necessary in order to create our annual T-shirt design.
Led by the Outreach Director, the outreach committee functions as the liaison between the Homecoming General Committee and campus organizations, UCLA students, and the greater Westwood community. They facilitate events such as “Paint the Town” and the clothing drive. They will find ways to incorporate community service into the Homecoming experience, either internally for the Homecoming organization or the entire UCLA community.
Student Engagement Committee
Led by the Public Relations Director, the public relations committee manages all social media outlets, the Homecoming website, and all other forms of public correspondence. This committee works to maintain a presence on Facebook and Instagram during the entirety of the year and is responsible for advertising and creating all marketing campaigns for all events during Homecoming Week. They are responsible for maintaining and enhancing the Homecoming brand.
Public Relations Committee
Led by the Student Engagement Director, the student engagement committee is where Homecoming is connected to the students of UCLA. By putting on events like the “Homecoming Bash” or bringing the best food trucks to Strathmore and Gayley, this committee never fails to bring the spirit of blue and gold to any event. Student engagement will be putting on several new and exciting events and spirit-focused initiatives during Homecoming Week, in hopes of inspiring the campus to promote Bruin Pride.
