The page you’re visiting is the main portal for the online version of the Daily Bruin’s 2011 Orientation Issue, created with you, incoming students, in mind. This issue is designed to help you gain a sense of what it means to be a Bruin as droves of new students make their way home to the hills of Westwood.

As UCLA’s student newspaper since 1919, our paper offers a closer look into the array of happenings that distinguish the Bruin community, an extensive family that extends well beyond the borders of campus. The Daily Bruin is just as multifaceted as the experiences you can find at UCLA, and our coverage doesn’t stop with the last page of the print paper.

The content you see here comes from our traditional print sections – News, Opinion, Arts & Entertainment and Sports. Beyond this, we invite you to explore our website and uncover the rich multimedia content here at Watch our videos, listen to our radio broadcasts, check out our blogs, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, shoot us an email or come say hi at Kerckhoff 118.
