Dean Ettner’s Welcome

On Thursday, September 23, the Division of Graduate Education welcomed our newest graduate Bruins into the UCLA community at Wilson Plaza! There were about 1,300 members who attended the event out of our 5,060 incoming graduate and professional students, representing 50 states, 2 U.S. territories, and 64 countries. Our newest Bruins enjoyed a relaxing evening of delicious food, entertaining music by DJ Matt Graumann, raffle prizes, photo booths, fun games, and the camaraderie of other graduate students, faculty, and staff.

 

This event is brought to you by UCLA Division of Graduate Education.
