Hi, my name is Professor Renee Willis from Competitive Edge Education and Business Services. We prepare students for their college experience. And today we're going to talk about UCLA, the University of California Los Angeles. For almost 100 years, UCLA has been a pioneer, persevering through impossibility, turning the futile into the attainable. UCLA was founded in 1919 as a public, coeducational research university and is part of the University of California system.
