Your Future Starts Here: For Newly Admitted Latinx Students

April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Please join us on the evening of Monday, April 5th for Your Future Starts Here, a virtual event honoring our Latinx admits for the Fall class of 2021. As many of you know, UCLA Enrollment Management developed these strategic welcome events that feature faculty, staff, and our academic departments/centers. Research supports that early engagement with faculty helps increase the yield of these extraordinary scholars. Your presence and participation in the past have been incredibly impactful, and we thank you for your continued support. Connecting with faculty and staff can make a difference in committing our most talented Latinx students.

This enrollment event positively impacts our yield, with over 83% of those in attendance becoming Bruins for the Fall class of 2019. These students continue to express a strong desire to meet with our Latinx faculty to make their final college choice decisions. Our success speaks for itself through these student responses.

    • “I thoroughly enjoyed how interactive the staff and faculty were. Even if a student would not approach a faculty member, they would come up to the students and engage them in conversation which I found lovely.”
    • “I wasn’t sure initially because I didn’t know if I would fit in well to the school, but the event helped me realize that I will be entering a community that is there to support me through my college career unconditionally.”
    • “The event was inspirational and not only encouraged me to commit to UCLA, it encouraged me to pursue a higher education.”

This year, although our program will be virtual, we aim to have at least 25-35 faculty and staff members present to welcome and engage with our students by participating in small group meetings, serving as panelists, and answering questions from students, parents, and guardians.

RSVP to Juan Espinoza at jespinoza@humnet.ucla.edu and a confirmation email with more information on what to expect for this virtual event will be sent to you closer to the event’s date. We ask that you also mark this date on your calendar.

We look forward to your participation and support of these exceptional students on April 5th!
