Blue and Gold Belles!

Two of my favorite things are Bruin Pride and Bruin Belles, and what could be better than combining these two loves through Campus Culture events? 
Earlier this year I volunteered at the Chancellor's Game Day Party tailgate at the Rose Bowl before the Utah football game (where the Bruins came out with a W!). I had always wondered what fancy events go on under the big canopies in the UCLA Fan Zone and I finally found out through Belles. Stationed at the temporary tattoo table, I helped toddlers, kids, teens, and adults alike put on UCLA & Joe Bruin tattoos and get super spirited before the game. One man even wanted a UCLA tattoo smack dab in the middle of his forehead! Seeing baby Bruins getting into the blue and gold spirit so early on in their lives just makes me so excited! 


Earlier this month a huge group of Belles and I went to the Pauley Pavillion Opening Madness grand opening event. Finally getting to walk into the brand new arena and in the same hallowed halls as UCLA leg…

First Year Belle: Karen Bryan

Bruin Belles has been the best way to transition into life at UCLA. As a first year, UCLA can seem like a huge school, whether it’s in classes, in the dorms, or just walking down Bruin Walk. I was overwhelmed and sometimes intimidated during the first few weeks by all of the people I was meeting. I was worried by the uncertainty of where I would find my place in such a diverse school.
Once I heard about Bruin Belles and was accepted into the organization, I was immediately welcomed with open arms. Bruin Belles has given me a community of likeminded women who are all amazing! There are girls from every year and major, and the diversity of backgrounds makes it so easy to meet so many different kinds of people.
Every week I find myself searching for empty space in my schedule to sign up for more events. There just isn’t enough time in a quarter to do everything that I want to that Belles offers! I love that I am able to participate and attend events that I would never have the opportunity …

WELCOME TO THE BELLE BLOG!

Hey everyone,

Welcome to our brand new blog! This project is a currently a work in progress, but I'm hoping to get the Belle Blog up and running within the next couple of weeks. We created this site to give you all the inside scoop on what the Belles are up to! Instead of only sending out the newsletter to BBSA alumni and supporters in the winter, this will give us the chance to keep you updated throughout the year. We'll be featuring the perspectives of many of our members, highlighting their experiences at specific events they volunteered at or about their general experience in Bruin Belles. Get excited!

Much love,
