It sounds like the perfect way to end your summer of growth and adventure with Summer Discovery.  Students who choose our UCLA campus extension program will spend a week exploring the best of Southern and Northern California while experiencing as many classic California activities as possible. Experience San Diego from the water as you learn to surf or take a kayak tour in La Jolla, enjoy the ultimate California beach and lunch at Mission Beach, and take in the history of Alcatraz alongside your Summer Discovery friends. 

The Summer Discovery campus extension program is your chance to end your summer on a high note – only available to UCLA/and UCLA Anderson School of Management students attending two or three-week Session #1 programs!
