Reunion Class of 2007 – 10th Reunion
Dear Class of 2007 Bruins,
It is an honor to welcome you back to campus for the Bruin Engineers’ Reunion Weekend 2017 on Friday, June 9th through Sunday, June 11th, 2017.
So much has changed on campus in the 10 years, since we graduated! Do you remember E-week Idol or how about the Faculty-Student Tug of War? And who could forget when UCLA beat ‘SC in 2006 with a 13-9 score ending SC’s 63 game streak and eliminating them from the national title game? With all the changes throughout the years, we should take pride in a few things that have continued to remain the same, like the UCLA 8-clap, our top-notch Engineering academics, and groundbreaking faculty and student research.
Unfortunately, plummeting state support is making it increasingly difficult to cover the critical needs of each student and fund the resources needed to sustain our outstanding academic programs and ensure a bright future for generations of Bruin Engineers to come.
As we reflect on the support we received while we were students, from UCLA and its facility and staff, and look toward the future of our School’s continued success, our School needs our support now more than ever. That is why the UCLA School of Engineering and I invite you to show your reunion spirit by making a gift to commemorate our graduation milestone and give back to the school that helped us create our Engineering path.
Bill Goodin, longtime advisor and mentor to our UCLA Engineering student groups, whom many of us know, has even stepped in to show his support for the Young Alumni classes. Bill is offering to help our class surpass our Reunion Class Giving Goal of $9,000 by challenging all young alumni to step up with a gift of any size to UCLA Engineering by May 31st. If we can reach our Reunion Class Gift Count Goal of at least 51 gifts, Bill will commit an additional $1,000 to be applied to our Reunion Class Giving Goal. Since we have just a few more to go to achieve our reunion gift count goal, we can soon unlock these funds, which will help go above and beyond our class dollar goal. If we band together and donate, we will be the first young alumni reunion class to significantly surpass their giving goal!
Join us in this friendly competition amongst the young alumni classes
by making a gift of any size today to help unlock an additional $1,000 for
UCLA Engineering Class of 2007’s reunion giving goal!
