Bruin Belles Service Association History
The Bruin Belles Service Association was established in 1946 to serve as hostesses of the Bruin Rugby Association. Since then, the organization has evolved from representing the student body to visiting dignitaries to serve other campus organizations and work alongside service organizations within the Los Angeles area.
We take pride in our extensive history and vast alumni network. Alumni often put on workshops and events for current members, act as personal and career mentors, and advise the Executive Board.
Bruin Belles is recognized as being the forerunners to groups such as the USC Helenes and the Layola Marymount Belles.
What does BBSA do?
Bruin Belles Service Association is a student-run organization that emphasizes community service and women's leadership.
There are five different aspects of BBSA: Philanthropy, Women's leadership, Fundraising, Campus Culture, and Social. We annually serve over 10,000 hours of service to Los Angeles organizations and UCLA. Bruin Belles participate in a wide range of community service projects with organizations such as SOAR (Saturday Opportunities for Adaptive Recreation), ACEing Autism, Meals on Wheels, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Scores LA, Project Angel Food, Challah for Hunger, and the Los Angeles Veterans' Hospital.
In addition, we support UCLA's athletic, performing arts, and alumni programs. The organization also sponsors its own events including speaker functions for members, a Women's Leadership Conference, and P.L.A.Y. Day.
We strive to continuously lend a hand to those in need and at the same time create a fun and warm environment for fellow UCLA students to not only become actively involved with the community but also meet many other Belles as well.
What do the social aspects of BBSA include?
We put on many socials throughout the month from simple movie nights to adventures in LA. We have quarterly parties and Spring Formal at the end of the year. Often, long-lasting and memorable friendships form between Belles, coining the term "Belle love" that saturates our community.
What will BBSA add to my life?
BBSA will allow you to explore a different aspect of Los Angeles and help get you out of the dorms! You will meet many great UCLA girls who are just as passionate and dedicated to philanthropy and leadership (and fun) as you are. It is an excellent resumé builder and leadership experience.
