The Campus Climate team believes that it is important to address the needs of this community because they make up 40% of our college campus and have a more difficult time with transitioning to a new and different college campus. It is our mission, in the USAC GR3 office, to make sure that these needs are met because Transfer students contribute a lot to the campus climate here at UCLA.

Liaison Office Hours

11.03.11
Scholarship Resource Center holding liaison office hours in the Community Programs Office: Mondays 11-12pm and Wednesdays 1-2pm (SAC 105)
Representatives from the College of Letters and Science and Academic Advancement Program (AAP) set aside time to have office hours with students in the Community Programs Office (CPO), housed in the Student Activities Center (SAC). This is a really great resource for students because it allows them to sit down with someone from these different departments to discuss academic issues and help facilitate goal-setting. In addition, these office hours are a great resource because students are now able to get the help that they need in a centralize place on campus, Student Activities Center, where many students go everyday to receive academic services, therefore, the USAC General Representative 3 office knew it would be necessary to include the Scholarship Resource Center. We organized this effort with the SRC and representatives from the CPO and now the program is up and running. If you need help with obtaining free money and figuring out financial issues, visit them during their office hours.

USAC President Sends Prayers to UCLA Legend

06.05.10

Yesterday, when we received the news of Coach Woodens passing, I stood alongside thousands of deeply saddened students, staff and faculty. I want to speak on behalf of the UCLA undergraduate community as I send thoughts and prayers to the Wooden family. Coach Wooden will truly be missed.

Not only did Coach Wooden serve as a basketball legend, but also his words of wisdom and remarkable life truly are a source of inspiration for Bruins and sports fans across the country. Alongside the Undergraduate Student Association Council, I want to acknowledge and honor the life of this great leader who meant so much to us all.

For over six decades, John Wooden has been a vital part of the UCLA family, reminding us all, success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming. Being an example of excellence, Coach Wooden truly led a successful life. Not only did the Coach never have a losing season in the 29 years of his career as a head coach, but also to his family and friends, he has succeeded as a father, grandfather, friend and mentor.

As a student leader, I personally have been touched by his commitment to this campus, his life of integrity, and his famous seven-point creed. The same kind of diligence, perseverance, and discipline he taught on the basketball courts was imparted onto many of us in the classroom and as we go out into the community. It is extremely hard to find another individual who has made such an impact on the spirit of the UCLA campus. Few others have the respect of so many, evident as thousands of people across this country immediately sent their concerns and best wishes as Coach Wooden experienced medical difficulty. Only moments after his passing had been announced, an informal vigil of close to 200 students formed outside the Ronald Reagan Medical Center.

I encourage all of us to keep the Coach in our thoughts, recalling his wisdom and great contribution to the world. Losing such a legend is painful to us all and we must mourn this loss alongside the Wooden family, supporting one another. Finally, it is important that we continuously acknowledge what a great impact Coach Wooden has had on us as athletes, students, and as Bruins.
