YOUR ONE STOP SHOP FOR ALL THINGS PROFESSIONAL, ENTERTAINMENT, & NETWORKING

The Undergraduate Communication Association (UCA) is a student-run organization that promotes interest and success in the field of communication and helps students develop an invaluable network with professionals and other members. UCA holds events for its members, such as:

  • Biannual Networking Nights, in which professionals from various communications-related industries (such as NBCUniversal, Paramount, Lionsgate, Warner Brothers, Google, and many more) come to UCLA to network with students.

  • Resume workshops, in which professional organizations send representatives to help members improve their resumes.

  • “Getting Into the Major” Question and Answer sessions with the Executive Board members on the Communications Major

A majority of our members involved with our events have found success in areas such as film, entertainment, media, journalism, technology, consulting, as well as thriving start ups. Although these are geared towards the Communications field, ALL students are welcome to join and network with us and our special guests.

UCA’s biannual Networking Nights during the Winter and Spring quarters are one of the most anticipated professional development events on campus. Twice a year, representatives from a large range of companies are brought together at the Kerckhoff Grand Salon to participate in a live panel discussion with our members! After listening to their stories, our members are asked to line up and wait for their chance to have an intimate one on one conversation with our guests. Food and drinks are served throughout the entire night. We highly encourage to dress to impress in your business casual and bring fresh hot copies of those resumes! Our previous guest list includes representatives from Google, Warner Brothers, NBC Universal, Colourpop, Marvel Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, and many more. Although we tend to cater ourselves towards Communication Majors who aspire to get involved in the world of entertainment, media, film, journalism, marketing, or even consulting, our events are open to students of all majors!
