    Join us for a hike (more like a stroll) around the Sepulveda Basin and the nearby L.A. River on Friday April 26, 2024 at 9am. The hike is expected to be about 3 miles of easy, flat terrain. The trail is part paved and part dirt. About half the hike is around Lake Balboa (above photo) with an off-shoot along the L.A. river.  

    Meet and check in the parking area adjacent to the Swan Boat rental dock at 9am.  There are restrooms nearby.  Dress in layers and bring sunscreen, a hat, water and a snack.

    BTW-The Japanese Gardens and the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Preserve  are nearby for any hikers that want a fuller day in the Basin. 

    Registration is now open. Go to the RA webpage  retirees.ucla.edu to sign up.

    • Chancellor's Residence (in-person)

    Join waitlist


    Over the past 15 years, Mrs. Carol Block has welcomed students from The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to the Chancellor's Residence to showcase their talents while creating a fun unique opportunity for UCLA emeriti and retirees to interact with Bruins and experience beautiful music in a social setting.

    This series has featured hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students performing music of diverse styles, including classical, jazz, bluegrass, mariachi and more.

    Grace Chen started learning piano at the age of six with her grandmother, who graduated from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and was a piano professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. They had piano lessons over Skype for four years, where she was given a great deal of freedom to play from instinct and found her passion for piano. She also owes a great deal to Anna Semyanovsky and Professor Hans Boepple for essential lessons in discipline and precision.

    She currently studies under Professor Inna Faliks, who continues to open her eyes to the immense awe of possibilities from combining thoughtful precision with self-confident instinct.

    Previous awards include: Northern Regional Winner of the 2021 MTAC Piano Concerto Competition, Finalist in the 2020 Marilyn Mindell Piano Competition, and First alternate in the 33rd Celia Méndez Young Pianists Beethoven Competition.

    Town Hall Q/A about Google Email Storage


    What is ChangingWhile the vast majority of alumni and retired Bruins are under the email "g.ucla.edu" storage quotas, several accounts exceed the future storage capacity.

    UCLA’s current storage significantly exceeds the new model’s limits, and as a result, UCLA will need to reduce its Google Workspace storage to ensure uninterrupted service and cost-effectiveness. An option for those who require additional storage and are eligible 

    Google Workspace for Education storage is comprised of any data in UCLA Personal "g" Drives, Gmail and Photos, and Shared Accounts for all affiliate groups using the UCLA campus environment. 

    Retirees, Emeriti and those on Recall are affected.

    In this Townhall Q/A UCLA IT support will answer all your questions about this change. Email your questions to adixon@errc.ucla.edu 

    To Learn More: https://it.ucla.edu/google-workspace

    Retirees: In June, retirees will have a Permanent Baseline Quota of 5GB in UCLA’s Google Workspace instance. This limit applies to your Google Mail account; note that UCLA Google Workspace services will be limited to only Google Mail starting June 27, 2024.

    EmeritiA temporary one-year extension is available until June 2025 for research-related personal drive data storage for emeriti set at slightly above current usage. While the extension is underway, emeriti are asked to continue to reduce their storage use.​
