Company Detail

Founded in 1919, BruinLife is the most historical, all-inclusive (and second-largest) publication on campus.

BruinLife is composed of:

  • BruinLife Photo Studio
  • BruinLife Annual (the yearbook)
  • BruinLife Online (online blog)

BruinLife, and its predecessor Southern Campus, have a unique historical and official status at UCLA. With both of our publications, our main objective is to give the UCLA student body an accurate reflection of the school year through photos and stories by Bruins and about Bruins. BruinLife Online focuses primarily on providing lifestyle and entertainment content to the UCLA community, distinct from Daily Bruin’s campus news. This includes guides to LA, tips for apartment hunting, reviews of local shows, trend alerts, etc. in blog-style articles. We strive to give the UCLA campus, an accurate reflection of the school year thru photos and stories about your every day Bruin.

The Bruin Life staff consists of over 70 staffers across 7 departments:

  • Writing
  • Copy
  • Photojournalism
  • Layout and design
  • Illustrations
  • Marketing
  • Video

When will intern training happen? Student Media training usually occurs on the weekends after Weeks 2, 3 and 4, but the editors will alert you to more specifics during the hiring process. In addition to your staff-specific training, a workshop on Media Law is required. Both the weekend trainings and Media Law training are required, and your acceptance into the organization is contingent upon attendance.

Can graduate students apply? Yes! All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply.

Can UCLA Extension students apply? Unfortunately, no, you may not apply if you are not enrolled at UCLA itself.
