There is a LGBT Resource Center on campus, and there is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Program. However, with such a varied campus, it's a wonder students aren't more accepting of the many gay pride demonstrations that occur. Nobody's outright hateful of homosexuals, but nobody openly embraces them, either.
Whenever policies are instated that affect campus, you can bet a club will host an all-out protest. Rallies, megaphone-yellings, and marches are commonplace as students blast their respective political ideologies. Though they can get obnoxious, it's nice to be reminded of the aware and active attitude of the student body.
Unlike some top-notch universities, the economic status of Bruins is varied. Nobody's ashamed to disclose their reliance on financial aid, and few flaunt their wealth. People seem to place more emphasis on character than money.
Most Common Religions
UCLA's religious displays are overwhelmingly Christian, though Jewish and Muslim students occupy a large social space, as well. Bible studies are plentiful for those interested, and Hillel (the Jewish student center) bakes and sells very popular Challah bread each Friday.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The minority clubs at UCLA are a political juggernaut on campus-minority students have pride and aren't afraid to encourage change with rallies and protests. There is a political action group at UCLA that mainly comprises the minority clubs and associations on campus.
