Greetings UCLA parents and families:
As I begin my third year at UCLA, I continue to be amazed at the energy around the campus as we prepare for the start of the new school year. Although the campus has endured an unexpected trial over the summer, we wait in anticipation of a new year, new students, and new surprises. For those of you who are new to BruinLink, this is our very own e-newsletter, created exclusively for families of undergraduate students. The Office of Parent and Family Programs collaborates with staff and faculty, as well current parents to create a robust collection of helpful articles five times a year. For those of you who are returning this year, welcome back! We hope that you continue to enjoy reading and sharing your opinions on the articles. To everyone, we wish your family a wonderful academic year!
As always, we greatly appreciate your feedback on the Bruinlink and highly encourage you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or suggestions you may have for future articles.
