What is USAC and why does it matter?
The Undergraduate Student Association Council (USAC) is comprised of 13 elected undergraduate members who represent over 28,000 undergraduate students.The body of USAC’s aim is to vigilantly and passionately represent student needs to UCLA administration, the campus, and the community, ensuring that every student gets the most out of their college experience and student fees. After paying close to $150 to your student government, it’s incredibly important to ensure elected officials hold true to their word of representing you and serving your needs. It is the goal of USAC to enrich the lives of every student and these elected officials are accountable for your needs. For more information check out the USAC website at http://www.usac.ucla.edu.
