This school year is like no other in history. COVID-19 has upended everything, requiring the entire campus community to sacrifice and adopt new ways of living and interacting. There are new rules, but there is also a new sense of community. That is what Bruin for Bruin is all about.

To promote safe behavior, and work toward the goal of getting the UCLA community back on campus, UCLA would like to highlight artistic expressions of what Bruin for Bruin means to you.
