Bruinlink Issue 2

Greetings UCLA parents and families:

We hope you enjoy the November issue of Bruinlink – our newsletter designed specifically for parents and families. The articles are a collaborative effort, written by staff, faculty, students and UCLA parents. Highlights include information about the upcoming winter break, transportation services from LAX, and involvement opportunities for your Bruin in the New Year. 

For the first time ever, we have extended our newsletter to include a special video portion with information on The Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center. We hope that you enjoy this new feature and the accompanying articles. Your feedback is very important to us, and we welcome any suggestions you might have.

From the Office of Parent & Family Programs, we want to wish you and your family a very happy thanksgiving and winter break!
