On Saturday, March 1, the women's basketball team welcomed school children to Pauley Pavilion as a part of the Bruin Adopt A Classroom program. During the course of the season, team members wrote and received letters from several different classrooms. All of the children were invited to a special meet-and-greet session after the game where they had the chance to get autographs and talk with their Bruin Pal.
The Adopt A Classroom program is offered to elementary and middle school classrooms in the greater Los Angeles area. Bruin student-athletes correspond during the course of their competitive season and the program culminates with a visit to the UCLA campus and admission to a game.
