This is Bruin Life
UCLA’s new student welcome, This is Bruin Life, features our Chancellor, student body president, campus leaders, current students and alumni. Using art and storytelling, they share what they have learned at UCLA, how they have grown, intervened and worked to create the Bruin Life they want to see-and the world they believe ought to be. As we witness Bruins share their stories, we invite you to step outside your comfort zone and embrace your power to contribute to Bruin Life. The show premieres September 24th at 5pm PDT at [thisisbruinlife.ucla.edu](thisisbruinlife.ucla.edu) and can be streamed on demand after that through mid-October. Check it out and share your story on social media with #myBRUINstory.

“Creative Collective” Living Learning Community
A living learning community is an environment where students with similar interests live together and participate in specially designed programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs. During this period of remote learning, our Living Learning Communities are now virtual cohorts of students with similar interests who don’t necessarily live together.
We are the storytellers, the music-makers, poets, artists, designers, movers, and dreamers. Through creativity we interpret and express the world around us and within ourselves, making connections that bring our campus community together.
