2016 Black Convocation at UCLA
Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
The Black Convocation is an annual event which welcomes new and returning students to the UCLA campus and makes them aware of the different organizations, departments, and resources available to serve them. In keeping with this year's theme--"A1DAY1"--the event will be an evening full of Bruin pride, providing encouragement, anecdotes about the past, and a glimpse of the future from UCLA faculty, staff, and alumni dedicated to supporting all students.
