(Season Schedule):

Starting strong, get hyped on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 6 p.m. PST for the Men’s Basketball game against Stanford! The game will be hosted at Pauley Pavilion, located at the bottom of The Hill. If you’re not a Den Pass holder and don’t have automatic free entry, there’s no need to worry! You can stop by the UCLA Central Ticket Office in person or visit their website to reserve your seat. In previous years, the first 100 attendees got free shirts, pompoms and bucket hats. So, line up early and give yourself a chance to secure amazing UCLA merch!

44th Annual Vietnamese Culture Night (Jan. 15, 2024)

Every year, UCLA’s Vietnamese Student Union (VSU) hosts their free cultural production in January. Students from UCLA’s Vietnamese community come together for a night of heart-pulling acting and breathtaking performances. Featured campus organizations include ACA’s Lion Dance Team, AweChords A Cappella, VSU Modern, Lạc Hồng Performing Arts Group and more. Tickets will be released later through UCLA’s Central Ticket Office and have been known to sell out in minutes. Follow their Instagram to never miss out on their latest updates!

UCLA VS. Washington Gymnastics Home Opener Meet (Jan. 27, 2024)

Come to Pauley Pavilion and watch our gymnasts flip and fly through the air on Jan. 27 at 6 pm PST! Saturday’s meet will be ONE of FIVE regular home meets for the season, so grab a ticket through their website and cheer along the sidelines. You can also tune in through TV: PAC-12 Network and support your fellow Bruins through the screen!

Workshops at the MakerSpace (various dates in January)

Last on the list, but certainly not least, be sure to stop by UCLA’s MakerSpace on The Hill in January and sign up for their free creative classes! The MakerSpace is located right across from The Drey and is open to all UCLA students. You can sign up through their Eventbrite and partake in workshops such as Intro to Laser Cutting, Intro to 3D Printing, Custom Vinyl Cutting and more (based on past offered workshops). Aside from their special workshop tutorials, you can still visit the space any time and explore your creative freedom with the tools and materials they offer at no cost!

No matter where you are on campus, you can always find something fun to do. Don’t be afraid to read those pamphlets in your dorm lounge or grab the flyers passed out on Bruinwalk! We hope you visit some of these wonderful January recommendations and have a great rest of your winter quarter, Bruins.
