Alumni Map

“UCLA has provided me with a long term stimulus for education and knowledge, for which I am eternally grateful. I am proud to claim it as my unofficial home for 28 years, first as an undergraduate, then a graduate and ultimately as a faculty member. So many wonderful memories!”

-Harlan Amstutz (BS ’53, MD ’56)


“As a proud Bruin, I can trace my success back to my chemistry education at UCLA, which was rewarding both personally and professionally. I would not have been able to create the various chemical systems that are the backbone of my company without my degree, but the greatest tool I acquired at UCLA was the ability to persevere. The valuable support and education I obtained helped me become the successful business owner and philanthropist I am today.”

-Myung Ki Hong (BS ’59)
