About the Daily Bruin
The Daily Bruin has been the campus newspaper since the university’s founding in 1919. It covers and serves the campus and the UCLA community with news, information and a forum for the expression of ideas.
The BruinLife yearbook is the most historical, all-inclusive (and second-largest) publication on campus. We strive to give the UCLA campus, an accurate reflection of the school year thru photos and stories about your every day Bruin.
Al-Talib provides an independent perspective on issues important to Muslim communities. Targeting a college-age audience, we seek to create an outlet for activism on and off campus, a platform for representation of all facets of the Muslim-American communities and a safe space for sensitive topics. We believe that this sort of dialogue, no matter how uncomfortable it may be at times, is necessary in order for our community to appreciate and celebrate its diversity.
FEM, UCLA’s feminist newsmagazine, is dedicated to the empowerment of all women, the promotion of human rights, the recognition of gender diversity, and the application of intersectional feminism. FEM celebrates women’s right to equality in all aspects of life and appeals to an audience that believes feminist ideology is still necessary to defeat sexism. We will offer a wide range of timely feature, opinion, and news pieces that tackle gender issues in relation to sexuality, race, class, and popular culture. The purpose of FEM is to enlighten our audience with information and personal accounts that may be rejected or ignored within mainstream media.
Ha’Am has been the official student-run Jewish newsmagazine at UCLA since 1972. We cater to a mainly college-age audience, with the distinct goal of uniting diverse Jewish communities through intelligent debate, maintaining the Talmudic tradition that has sustained our people throughout the millennia. We seek the unique Jewish voice in age-old arguments and perspectives, highlighting what makes the Jews of today exceptional through our articles, personality profiles, and pro-con discussions. We celebrate the intersections of religious and secular life that exist within each Jewish student and writer. This isn’t your grandmother’s Judaism — this is Ha’Am today.

OutWrite focuses on the issues of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, fluid, questioning and other queer identities, by those of the queer community.
OutWrite, originally known as TenPercent, was established in 1979, becoming the first queer newsmagazine in the country. The name TenPercent was chosen from the Alfred Kinsey’s study Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, which stated that ten percent of men identified as homosexual. In 2005, the magazine’s staff petitioned to change the name to OutWrite, due to the emphasis that the title placed on the white, gay male identity, and instead used a name, which better represents the queer community’s vast number of identities. Similarly in the past, the magazine referred itself as a LGBTQ magazine, but has since changed this label to queer. This change in the magazine’s self description, which shifts the emphasis of the community off of a group of dominant identities, unites our community under a single word, a single identity in which we all are united under. By no means does this change in label mean to diminish the many and wonderful identities of our community, but rather allow the celebration of these identities in a united front. OutWrite transforms and adapts itself to better represent and serve the queer community, changing its own identity as our community grows and changes itself.

About UCLA Radio
Student-run radio at UCLA began in the basement of the Dykstra Hall dormitory on UCLA’s campus as KBRU in 1964. ASUCLA quickly took control of the station and moved it to the back of Ackerman Grand Ballroom in Ackerman Union – into a room that had previously been used as a record-listening lounge for students. ASUCLA broadcast the station via carrier current at 530 AM, though the call letters and band were changed frequently throughout the station’s history (including a switch to low-power FM, as well as use of cable FM). For most of its time as a terrestrial radio station, the station broadcast as KLA. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) agents disconnected the station’s 91.9 FM transmitter in 1999 as it was slightly too powerful to be considered a low-power FM signal. For a short time, the station broadcast solely through cable radio, until its website KLAradio.com was launched in 1999 featuring a SHOUTcast stream. The URL was switched to UCLAradio.com in 2000.
