2013-2014 UCLA Common Book

The Common Book experience was created for all new undergraduate Bruins. By reading a common book over the summer, and then coming together to discuss the book during True Bruin Welcome, students engage in an intellectual and community-building activity that introduces them to the UCLA experience. All incoming UCLA first-year and transfer students are provided a book to read during summer orientation. During True Bruin Welcome Week (week zero), they participate in discussions of the book and related issues; the discussions are facilitated by Resident Assistants. Faculty and staff are encouraged to incorporate themes and ideas from the Common Book in their courses and programs.

Please use this guide for further information related to this year's book, I Never Had It Made.
