Be a part of UCLA Bruin Day
for admitted freshmen!

Special Events & Protocol is looking for staff members interested in volunteering at UCLA Bruin Day on Saturday, April 15, 2017. We anticipate approximately 15,000 admitted freshmen students and their guests will visit the campus, and your help is vital to making the day a success.

UCLA Bruin Day gives admitted students the chance to tour the campus, hear from professors, meet current students and experience what life is like as a Bruin. Our goal is to pack all UCLA has to offer into one spirited and unforgettable day.

We’re looking for friendly faces to help greet guests, direct them around campus, and help us showcase all UCLA has to offer. If you would like more information or to sign-up to volunteer, please visit the link: Volunteer for Bruin Day 2017 before the Wednesday, April 5, 2017 deadline.

We look forward to your help in welcoming admitted students to our Bruin family!
