UCLA Alumni Affairs is honored to host New Bruin Send-off Celebrations to welcome incoming students and families. Whether you're a student, alumnus, family member or friend of the University - there's something for everyone at a New Bruin Send-off!

Hosted by regional, diversity and affinity alumni networks each summer, these celebratory and casual gatherings bring together students, parents and alumni for events ranging from backyard gatherings, virtual events, to picnics in community parks. Each event is unique, but one common theme always emerges: the strength and reach of the UCLA community.

Joining us for any of our virtual events? Check out our specialized New Bruin Send-off Celebration Zoom backgrounds.

Parents & Families

Parents and family members are welcome at all of our celebration events. However, we understand that as parents/family members of incoming students, you will have more specific questions as the school year approaches. We encourage parents/family members to attend one of our events below, co-hosted by the UCLA Parent & Family Association, to get answers to any of your questions and inquiries.
