UCLA represents the very best of what a university can be—a diverse community of talented people who enrich our society through education, research and service. Our extraordinary students are simply the best of the best. They come from every walk of life and share a commitment to excellence. For more than 10 years, we have received more freshman applications than any other university and have enrolled about 10 percent of those who applied. Our world-class faculty includes many who are the top scholars in their fields. They are actively engaged in teaching and research because they love learning and discovery.
UCLA enjoys a special relationship with Los Angeles and Southern California. Faculty, staff and students provide informed service to almost 200 civic organizations. Our scholarship advances medical science, engineering, education, the arts and humanities and many other fields all over the world.
I hope you will visit our beautiful campus and attend some of our many world-class cultural and athletic events. In the meantime, please enjoy a virtual visit online.
