ALUMNI HOSTS have been making UCLA a warmer and friendlier place for students since 1968 by serving up good food and conversation through Dinners for 12 Strangers. After 40 years, this UCLA tradition is expanding to students in the professional schools, including the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, with alumni guest/host dinners throughout the country.
The award-winning Dinners for 12 Strangers is based on a simple idea: On three specific dates, local alumni host dinners in their homes for students, faculty and fellow alumni. Dinners range from catered affairs and simple buffets to home-cooked fare. In addition to a great meal, the program offers participants an opportunity to make new friends and valuable Bruin connections.
The 2010 Dinners for 12 Strangers will be held on February 27, 28 and March 6. Every effort will be made to match medical students with Medical Alumni Association members.
