The inspiring stories of the class of 2023

Honoring the unique journeys of the newest UCLA graduates

Each member of the UCLA class of 2023 has earned the right to celebrate this season. And each has traveled a unique journey to reach the milestone of commencement.

To honor those journeys — the challenges our students have overcome, the talents they have contributed and the inspiration they will continue to provide for all of us — we are pleased to spotlight a small number of the 14,000-plus Bruins who will receive their degrees this week and who are poised to launch into the next chapter of their lives. Their stories, representing undergraduates and graduate students from across the entire campus, reflect the qualities that help set UCLA apart as a world-class public research university.

Please join us in honoring UCLA’s class of 2023. This page will be updated regularly through June 16.
