Bruins come to UCLA from near and far, and every year our out-of-state students travel miles in planes, trains, buses, and cars to attend UCLA. Out-of-state students at UCLA represent every region in the country, including the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest, and Non-contiguous regions. Moving across the country can be an intimidating experience, but there are resources and programs dedicated to helping you find your community at UCLA.
Our mission in FYE is to bring awareness to the out-of-state population at UCLA and ensure students find their home away from home. We want our out-of-state students to feel like Bruins, regardless of where your home state is and even though UCLA may at times feel foreign. First Year Experience is dedicated to equipping you with the tools, knowledge, and tips you need to be successful at UCLA. We host events for out-of-state students, connect students to resources, and support the Out of State Student Association (OSSA).
The Out of State Student Association (OSSA) is a student organization here to provide peer-to-peer connection and community between OOS Bruins.
