New Student Welcome events
At the start of each academic year, Physical Sciences hosts a welcome event for all first-year (freshmen and transfer) students seeking to major in one of our departments. These events help new students begin to build a supportive network by bringing them together with faculty, alumni, graduate students, and older undergraduates.
Click below for videos of these events featuring UCLA Physical Sciences alumni sharing their experiences and advice on being a student and pursuing a career in these sciences after graduation.
