UCMAA Southern California Chapter

Reconnect with Golden Bobcats in Southern California

On January 24, 2012, UC Merced hosted its first Southern California alumni event in Orange County.

On December 7, 2013, the UCMAA Southern California Chapter was officially approved by the UCMAA Board and became UC Merced's fifth official Chapter.

The UCMAA Merced Chapter serves to:

  • Foster and maintain strong relationships between the Chapter's members and the UC Merced
  • Promote leadership and a spirit of citizenship amongst all UC Merced alumni
  • Act as a conduit for the exchange of information and ideas between UC Merced and Merced alumni
  • Aid in the advancement of the University
  • Serve as a network that works towards the building of a strong foundation for UC Merced's students
