It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our UCLA campus. I hope that your stay at UCLA will prove challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding. You are now part of an exceptionally promising and diverse group of scholars and professionals in training, and we look forward to the contribution you will make to the intellectual vitality of the community.
The Orientation Handbook contains information that will help orient you to UCLA, its opportunities and its programs. It’s intended to supplement the more detailed information you will receive from your department regarding the specific resources and requirements for your own degree program. The UCLA campus provides a wide array of resources and opportunities, and I invite you to seek those that meet your own unique needs.
