Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 1970

UCLA School of Nursing has a proud history of being an innovative school, from the first Dean, Lulu wold Haseplugw who instituted allowing Nursing students to live outside a dedicated "Nurses Dorm" (chaparoned) to not wearing caps, which most nurses now do in practice. Lecture and classrom esperience were followed by supervised hands-on patient care. Bedwide patient care was emphasized as the primary purpose of a nurse, using Nursing Theory to bolster what was taught. When I attended, Nursing theory was coming into its own, with prominent theorists on the faculty and available to students.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 1988

Attending UCLA was one of the best decisions I have made. The school is demanding and the payoff was rewarding. I am very connected to UCLA and have made life long friends there, both while attending and as an alumni. If you want a challenging and rewarding college experience, attending UCLA is the way to go.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2002

I loved UCLA! I received a top notch education and enjoyed every minute of my time at UCLA. I would highly recommend UCLA to any prospective student. The professors and degree programs are nothing short of stellar. I was fortunate enough to become a Teachers Assistant in the Education Department during my time at UCLA and learned so much. I also worked on campus at the John Wooden Center while I attended UCLA and made life long friends. I am so proud to be a Bruin! If you think you might be interested in UCLA - go visit the campus. Talk to the students. Visit the dorms. Attend a football game. Get a sense of what it's like to be a Bruin - you'll love it!

Degree: Finance and Financial Management Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

The Financial Engineering Program in UCLA is offered by the Anderson School of Management. The course curriculum has been well designed to prepare the students for a diverse range of career paths: form Wall Street Banks to Boutique investment management firms. The academics and faculty are excellant. LA being a sunshine city is also a great place to be. As it was rightly mentioned it's one of the few public universities with Ivy League quality education.

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2007

I had a great time during my MBA at the Anderson School at UCLA. The collaborative student body, the entrepreneurial culture of the school along with the opportunity of being in a stellar university like UCLA, all helped in making my two years in Los Angeles quite exceptional. On the professional front the experience was equally satisfactory and I was able to make a seamless transition from a technology background to a career in finance.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2004

UCLA was one of the greatest times of my life because I was able to interact with diverse groups of people, learn about myself through interactions with others of diverse backgrounds, and the support of the alumni network is amazing. I was able to engage in so many activities that opened my mind to the world, especially the study abroad program in Spain. After that program, I started travelling all over the world and have been to over 25 countries before my 40s.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 1965

My UCLA years were the best in my life. I learned so much, had wonderful experiences, and loved the campus and its facilities. You learn how to function in a fast paced world of the best and brightest, in the best part of Los Angeles. I have been an active member of the local alumni chapter for 25 years.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 1998

UCLA was a great experience for me. I gained a lot of knowledge in my major which wasn't only theory but gave me the opportunity to do "hands on" work such as mentor at risk youth. Professors were approachable and very helpful especially when it came to writing letters of recommendation. Aside from studying, I made everlasting friendships who I still connect with as alumni. Social organizations were fun to be a part of which allowed me to give back to the community and also served as a support/motivational group for me especially when it came to stressful times ie midterms and finals. It was great to have been part of an educational institution which is not known only statewide and nationwide, but also worldwide. I'm very proud to be a UCLA alumnus. Go Bruins!

Degree: History, Other
Graduation Year: 1987

For a progressive, diverse and well-rounded student body and first rate education, UCLA ranks among the best universities in the country. Professors are well known in their fields of expertise. I appreciated the level of students accepted to the school. You may have been top of your class in high school, but so was everyone else accepted to UCLA so it makes you strive harder to keep up. Post-graduation successes also are great indicators to the caliber of students and the education they received at UCLA.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2007

UCLA was a fantastic place to study as an undergrad. I was given a lot of flexibility in choosing courses which both appealed to my interests and my future career goals. When I decide 2.5 years in that a Bachelor's of Science was not for me, dedicated counsellors helped me to find the right path to graduate on time with a B.A. I was incredibly happy in my B.A. program, and found that in addition to top-rated faculty-led classes, UCLA offered so many opportunities to pursue my academic (and entertainment) interests outside of class with guests lecturers and visiting performances. Finally, when I graduated, I had a job offer directly related to my degree. Since that first job, I know that when employers see UCLA on my resume, they associate it with high quality and standards.
