Charles Fischer - 5/27/2015
Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 1984
"I entered the program just as the transition to microcomputers was getting underway. In addition to my excellent systems classes, the team assignments and projects were very useful for my professional career as a consultant, where a lot of the job was collaboration with various end-users and the IT department."

"UCLA was the best decision that I could have made. I was out of state so the tuition was the same as attending a private university elsewhere. The campus is lovely, the students engaged and the teaching staff was always available to answer questions and help guide me on my journey. UCLA is the total package school, a world class education with exciting sports and all the life that Los Angeles has to offer. I will always cherish the four years I spent there and the people I met. Go BRUINS!"

I felt supported by other students as well as professors and advisors. I built life-long personal and professional relationships during my time at UCLA SPH."
M. Bekken - 5/26/2015
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 1995
"UCLA offers an excellent doctoral program in environmental science and engineering. The program is designed for people who wish to make a real practical difference in the environmental arena, as leaders of environmental think tanks or similar organizations. The program accepts people with master's degrees in a wide range of areas, and graduates people who have completed a dissertation in a real-world application, rather than in a lab doing theoretical work or paper studies. The graduates have studied enough variety of subjects to converse intelligibly with lawyers, engineers, chemists, biologists, and anyone who might be involved in the environmental arena."

Graduation Year: 1959
"I have a degree B.S. Applied Physics. This major prepared me for many opportunities I the field of science, where a degree in let say electrical or any other engineering would have restricted me in selecting other jobs. Also if you think about it, at the age of 18 a person does not really know what he is interested in. Majoring in physics really encouraged one in to think and reason instead of memorizing. It was funny that my first boss looked at my records and said: "I see you have a degree in physics, what would you like to do?" As it turned out at the end I wound up designing optical systems which, I enjoyed very much and did for 26 years."

Graduation Year: 2008
"Spending four years at UCLA to get my bachelor's was the best choice I made. It is such a vibrant school, full of energetic and curious individuals doing so many different things. I came from a small private high school of 750 students total, but was able to find a niche in such a large student body."

"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."

"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!"

"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."
