Dinners for 12 Strangers

homepage

Welcome

Dinners for 12 Strangers is a 50+ year UCLA tradition that has become a global phenomenon. Every year, on one of three nights, alumni, faculty and students come together to enjoy good food and great conversation. This past year, alumni hosted more than 500 dinners around the world involving more than 3,700 Bruins.

Due to the current pandemic affecting the world, we have decided to keep the program going by transitioning to an online virtual gathering format. We believe in the power of community and the Bruin network to inspire and guide one another.

Host sign up will take place in January and guest sign up will take place in February.

Over the course of three nights, February 20, 21 and 27 we encourage you to meet, network and join fellow Bruins around the world.

Sign-ups will open in November.
