Dear CSSA-UCLA members:
Do you still remember how anxious you were when you first arrived in LAX?
Have you ever received the disinterested help from other CSSA-UCLA members? Now you can be the person to help new students. CSSA-UCLA is now calling for your participation in picking up AND/OR accommodating new students.
This year we’ve highly recommended new students to give compensation as a sincere thank to the volunteers. For volunteer drivers, the new students are expected to cover the gas fee, roughly $10-20 depending on distance. For volunteer hosts, we suggest a $25-30/day charge for housing, final price depending on negotiation between hosts and newcomers.
As a volunteer driver and/or host, you need to tell us your availability and pick-up/accommodation preference. We will match you with newcomers and confirm with you. Then we will inform newcomers to contact you and coordinate details with you. Afterwards, you should go to the airport to pick them up and/or offer your house to accommodate these new students.
If you would like to be:
volunteer drivers to pick up new students: register at
volunteer hosts to accommodate new students: register at
We appreciate your participation and enthusiasm very much! We are looking forward to hearing from you.
