Light the Way Home

Bruin Engineers Reunion 2020 stands as a time to reflect on all you’ve accomplished since graduation and all UCLA has accomplished in its first 100 years. We reunite as Problem Solvers, both to give back to the place that gave us so much and to provide further growth and innovation for the school. This reunion offers the unique opportunity to light the way home for our fellow Bruin Engineers as we lay the foundation to ensure a bright future for those who come next.
