How to Thrive in the Sciences at UCLA and Beyond
Friday, September 29, 2023
1:00 – 6:00 PM
De Neve Auditorium & Adjacent Courtyard
Food • Giveaways • Great People!
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 or minor, including but not limited to:
biochemistry | chemistry | chemistry-materials science | math | applied math | math-economics | statistics | data theory | physics | astrophysics | biophysics | atmospheric, oceanic, and environmental science | climate science | geology | geology-engineering | geophysics | earth and environmental science
There will be two group RSVPs: Group A starts with a welcome from Dean of Physical Sciences Miguel Garcia-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 be able to meet the professors they are most likely to learn from during their first year, talk with more advanced UCLA students about their experiences, and interact with alumni who’ve gone on to a wide variety of careers taking advantage of the skills and knowledge they gained as UCLA Physical Science majors. Group B will do this in reverse!
Students who attend will have the opportunity to enter into a raffle for a gift from Dean Miguel García-Garibay, who will be there to welcome you to UCLA!
If you cannot attend in person, please RSVP so that we can send you a link to the livestream of the event.
