Visiting the Bruin Zone at Boston College
Visiting the Bruin Zone at Boston College is a great way to spend a day with your family. From former football stars to women’s tennis team, you’ll find plenty of entertainment to keep the kids entertained.
Bruin family weekend
Bruin Family Weekend is a three day event sponsored by UCLA. It includes tours, lectures, and fun activities. The cost is $95 per non-student attendee. It excludes international families, low-income students, and out-of-state families. However, the price can be subsidized for Academic Advancement Program (AAP) families.
The event begins with check-in at Bruin Central. There you will receive a free instant family photo and a packet with information about the Chancellor’s Bruin Game Day Party. You can also reserve your seat for the game by contacting the Bruin Central ticket office.
The first half of the game will feature a rousing performance by the UCLA Marching Band. In the second half, UCLA will host a Puget Sound defense that allows the third-most passing yards and rushing yards in the conference. The Bruins will look to hold the Pioneers to only 12 first downs.
The UCLA Bruins football team is a member of the Pac-12 Conference. They play home games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. They played in the 2011 and 2012 Pac-12 Football Championship Games.
Former football stars
Historically, UCLA’s athletic department has been hit hard by declining attendance. The latest data shows that last year’s average attendance was the lowest since the school moved its home games to a new stadium forty years ago. Next season, the Bruins will play two more games against Pac-12 teams, and it’s expected that the average will go up a bit.
In particular, it’s been a rough go for the Bruins’ football program. There have been 35 former players in the NFL, including the likes of Denver Broncos’ star linebacker Greg Dulcich, and New England Patriots wideout Matthew Slater. It’s hard to argue with the fact that the aforementioned pandemic is a huge setback for an athletic department that once boasted a storied history. Nonetheless, the team is finally proving itself under new coach Chip Kelly. The program is expected to make an immediate impact in the coming years. It’s been a long road to the top, but fans should be encouraged that the team is finally on the verge of an identity shift.
Women’s tennis team
Despite being one of the newest programs in the Pac-12, the Bruins have been consistently competitive. In January, they made their maiden road trip to Los Angeles and were rewarded with a 4-1 win in a spirited match that went down in the books. They have won eight of their last nine. They are currently ranked 15th in the nation. They will be competing in the ITA Southwest Regionals in San Diego on Thursday.
In terms of performance, the Bruin zone has the tools to make it to the NCAA Tournament. Their top players include Patrick Cantlay, Corey Pavin, Ben Goldberg, Roscoe Bellamy, and Patrick Zahraj. The Huskies are also well-represented in the doubles department. They are currently paired with two seasoned veterans in Sven Lah and Jimmy Bendeck. They are tied for second in the conference with Washington. UCLA has the top scoring doubles team in the league. They are the only team in the Pac-12 to go undefeated at home.
Bruin Fun Zone
Associated Students UCLA (ASUCLA) has recently introduced the Bruin Fun Zone, a recreational facility that allows Bruins to hang out and play games. It also offers an environment for fostering community building. The Bruin Fun Zone is a space that complements Wellness Wednesdays and movie nights. This new facility is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and features table tennis, computer games, and more. It is a relaxing environment that is not found in dorms on the Hill.
As a fourth-year communication student, Alejandro Martin-Cruz was interested in the retro-style activities that the Fun Zone offered. He said that he was eager to experience the new facility when it opened. As he tried out the various activities, he was impressed with the variety of games available. He said that he will use the space more often as it continues to grow and evolve.
Solomon’s team is currently collecting feedback from the UCLA community to determine what services and activities they would like to see in the future. They plan to continue adding more facilities as they develop the Bruin Fun Zone into a more mature space.
