UCLA’s Southeast Asian (SEA) Admit Weekend is an award-winning program held for prospective Southeast Asian admitted students in collaboration with Southeast Asian Student Organizations at UCLA, including the Vietnamese Student Union, Thai Student Association, United Khmer Students, Burmese Student Association, Asian Pacific Coalition, and Association of Hmong Students. Southeast Asians, specifically Burmese, Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, Mien, Thai and Vietnamese, are historically underrepresented at UCLA and other colleges and universities. This is mainly due to our immigration history, with the majority of Southeast Asians arriving in the 1970s and afterwards. Because of this, many Southeast Asians who attend college or universities are first generation students who are affected by their refugee experiences. In order to ensure that our voices are heard, and our struggles and experiences shared, we want to increase the amount of SEA students at UCLA by hosting this special program. Already in its 10th anniversary, SEA Admit Weekend seeks to promote higher education, increase community consciousness, and provide a safe and supportive Southeast Asian community on campus, while introducing Southeast Asian admits to the vast variety of opportunities and resources available to them as a Bruin.

SEA Admit Weekend hopes to inspire future generations of Southeast Asian admitted students to become empowered, learn about the rich history and culture relevant to their identity, be aware of the resources available to them at UCLA, and find a safe and supportive community. Our goal is to foster a cohesive and educated environment to better ourselves, our families, and our community. Southeast Admit Weekend is entirely run by the Southeast Asian Coalition, a number of non-profit Southeast Asian organizations at UCLA. As a result, we rely heavily on fundraising and donations from supporters like you. By supporting our campaign, you will become an ally of our mission to educate incoming generations of the Southeast Asian community and raise its representation in institutions of higher education and beyond.
