Reunion Class of 2016 – 1st Reunion
Dear Class of 2016 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.
We are inviting you back one year after graduation to celebrate with your fellow Class of 2016 alumni, connect with Bruin Engineers of other classes, and enjoy the sharing your recent memories of your alma mater. Do you remember the robotic concierge at the brand new UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference center or the 75-cent SEASCafe coffee that helped keep you awake during finals? And who could forget the grand unveiling of Phase I of the EVI building with those new student interaction hot spots? These were some amazing memories that your class might remember, as well as the few things that will thankfully always remain the same—are our lovable Bruin bear mascot, the rousing UCLA 8-clap, and our top-notch Engineering academics and groundbreaking 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 we 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 reach our Reunion Class Giving Goal of $4,000 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 54 gifts, Bill will commit an additional $2,000 to be applied to our Reunion Class Giving Goal. Make a gift of any size today to give back to our alma mater and help unlock this challenge!
