One of the most joyous times on the UCLA calendar comes every spring, when high school students log in to the UCLA Admissions portal to find out whether they've been offered admission for the fall. During these unprecendented times of physical distancing and staying “safer at home,” the UCLA community rallied together to celebrate brand new connections to the newly admitted class of 2024.

Incoming Bruins, together with their families and friends, took to social media on March 20 as they met this exciting milestone, learning their years of hard work paid off before posting live video reactions full of hugs, screams, disbelief, family photos and the best kind of tears.
 

 

 

“The proudest mom.”

 

“LET'S GO! LET'S GO!”

 

“I can’t believe it is becoming a reality.”
