Spring Quarter 2020

We may be away from campus but our Bruin spirit has never been more connected with the UCLA community. Let’s celebrate I ♥ UCLA throughout the quarter with activities that highlight our Bruin love and pride.

 

WEEKLY 

#BruinFridays
Share a picture of yourself at a UCLA athletic event with #BruinFridays. Don’t forget to wear your UCLA gear this Friday and nominate three other friends!Conversations With TEDx Speakers
Speakers from the TEDxUCLA series will discuss varying topics each Thursday from noon-1 p.m. (PT) through Zoom. They will be conducted with a host, moderator, speaker(s) and participants from home. You can ask questions, share perspectives and take part in ideas worth spreading through these conversations. This is a great space for discussion and dialogue where the audience can engage with speakers and the topic as well. The series is free and people can sign up for the email alert list at tedx.ucla.edu/conversations (you’ll receive the Zoom link a day before). Follow our Facebook or Instagram to see who the speakers are and what they’re going to discuss each week.Zoom Backgrounds
