You are invited to a getting-to-know-you event connecting new students to the Physical Sciences community through casual, candid discussions with Physical Sciences alumni, faculty, and current undergraduates.
This event is geared toward new students interested in a Physical Sciences major/minor and begins with a welcome from Dean of Physical Sciences Miguel García-Garibay. This will be followed by a panel of alumni answering some of your most common questions about the keys to success as a UCLA student. We will conclude with an outdoor reception where students will meet the professors they are most likely to learn from during their first year, talk with upperclassmen about their experiences, and interact with alumni who’ve gone on to a wide variety of careers.
Meet our panelists
Students who attend will have the opportunity to enter into a raffle for a gift from Dean Miguel García-Garibay.
If you cannot attend in person, please RSVP so that we can send you a link to the livestream of the event.
In the words of a student who attended a previous year’s version of this event: “It’s a priceless opportunity to get to talk to esteemed faculty and alumni who have had extensive experience in their field, and then find out how you can apply your current education to the real world.”
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com.
We can’t wait to meet you!
