UBAA Annual Events

​Legacy Scholarship Dinner

The Legacy Dinner is our signature event.  It not only raises funds, but it is like a

reunion for UCLA Black Grads.  This event must be developed into an annual event

that members look forward to each year.  This event is a public event so it gives us the

ability to highlight UBAA and the work we do.  This gives us a great opportunity to thank

all of our supporters and sponsors, and gives us a platform to develop new sponsors.

Black Convocation

We are committed to participate and UBAA has been slotted into the program and has

several members positioned to participate in the event on multiple levels up to and

including public speaking, coaching and mentoring the new Black student UCLA admits.

UBAA Admit/Yield Dinner
The UBAA Admit/Yield Recognition Event is an opportunity for UBAA to establish a

relationship with the students that have been admitted to UCLA so that they actually

choose us as their school.

High Potential H.S. Student Recruitment Meet & Greet
UBAA is taking a strategic, proactive approach to recruit the top students nationwide, specifically Black High School seniors who have

exceptional GPAs and test scores. We want these students to know that they are wanted and welcome to apply to UCLA by inviting them to a social, informative gathering attended by UCLA Alumni, Staff & Faculty. The parents are also invited to get a feel for the UCLA culture

and ask questions about the application process.

UBAA Admissions Seminar
UBAA and the Alliance (L. A. Urban league, NAACP, UBAA) will host a application

seminar aimed at reaching out and assisting prospective students with the application

process. It is also designed for the students to develop relationships and see what the

campus, faculty, staff and support organizations have to offer. The idea is to contact and

compete for the best before they apply.

We get together every year to re-connect and have fun with our families with the goal

being to increase our membership, so you’re invited! We eat, we talk, we have fun!
