Site Spotlight – UCLA


We are still working to finalize our sites and dates for the 2020 summer but we know there is one place we will be back and that is the University of California, Los Angeles!

UCLA is a university grounded in academic excellence and social change.  Since its founding in 1919, UCLA has risen to become the #2 ranked school for positive impact on society.  Furthermore, UCLA was voted the number 1 public university in America by both the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education.

Participants stay on UCLA’s campus: 419 acres of beautiful property surrounded by the bustling city. The campus is home to many spectacular resources and sights such as the Sculpture and Botanical Gardens, Athletics Hall of Fame, Meteorite Gallery, Planetarium, and many museums.

Los Angeles is home to many must see adventures! Visit the world famous beaches of Santa Monica or Malibu.  Universal Studios Hollywood might be calling movie goers and thrill seekers.  Catch a show at the Walt Disney Concert Hall or watch as the Clippers and Lakers crush their competition in the Staples Center. Endless venues and parks provide continuous recreation and activity for visitors and residents.

Be sure to check our website in mid December to see all of our sites and dates.
