The weekend of April 19-20, 2014, UCLA students hosted Pride Admit Weekend (PAW), the campus's first-ever LGBTQ overnight admitted student weekend for 9 students from across the country. Organizers believe it may be the first of its kind in the nation.
"In response, our students have worked to develop the first overnight program built to highlight all the resources our campus has to offer and increase LGBTQ student enrollment at UCLA in the fall."
UCLA students braved many obstacles and navigated campus to identify LGBTQ admitted students and hosted them for two days of panels, activities and even a queer short film festival in collaboration with OutFest. They aimed to demonstrate the diversity of the queer community at UCLA and all the ways they could get involved if they choose to come to campus in the Fall.
