You are a vital component in the recruitment process showing potential students the benefits of a UCLA education and our strong Bruin family.
In order to provide a holistic introduction to the college experience, MEChA de UCLA historically invites UCLA alumni and current students to engage with admitted students. Our Lantinx and Xicanx alumni are highly valued as positive role models who impart indispensable advice and demonstrate how to succeed as students at UCLA.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
1. Student-Alumni Dinner Guest. This dinner will provide admitted students an opportunity to network with alumni and discuss the Bruin experience, as well as career paths post-UCLA. We hope that you will answer any questions that the students may have on a variety of relevant topics.
2. Letter Writing Campaign. We are asking you and fellow alumni to write a letter to this year's newly admitted students giving words of encouragement as they begin a new path towards a higher education. In addition, we would like for you to give a short bio on the back of your letter giving the following information about yourself. We hope these biographies can serve as a source of inspiration, as well as a connection point for our Black transfer students that are about to make the biggest decision of their life. We are looking to collect more than 200 letters, and hope you can support us by writing one! Thank you in advance for your support.
