New Parent & Family Sessions
New Parent & Family Sessions are one-day sessions designed to welcome families to the UCLA community and address the concerns family members have relative to their student’s upcoming university experience. Bruin Day introduced you to the many opportunities available at UCLA but New Parent & Family Sessions will look closer at life on campus, strategies for success, and what it means to be the family of a thriving UCLA student. Whether you are a family member of a first year or transfer student, new to UCLA or familiar with campus, a parent, partner, or supporter, we welcome you to our sessions.
Your session will feature presentations from UCLA staff, faculty, and students on academics, available services and educational opportunities, the transitional experiences of students and how families can support them, and general campus life. Lunch and light refreshments are included. All activities will be led by New Student Advisors, trained undergraduate counselors who are intimately familiar with the student experience.
New Parent & Family Session components are held separately of your student’s session but do coincide with the last day of each three-day First Year session as well as a standalone session on Saturday, August 5. Sessions run from 8:00 am to approximately 5:30 pm PDT. Your new student(s) should attend a New Student Session as the Parent & Family sessions are not intended for students.
