DMA Technology Summer Camps atUniversity of California, Los AngelesJune 22nd – August 14th


For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the UCLA campus, eat in the same dining halls as UCLA undergrads and students ages 12+ can even stay overnight. Digital Media Academy selected UCLA not only because of its academic excellence and advanced research programs, but also because of its ideal location in Los Angeles, the nation’s most ethnically diverse large city and the heart of the Southern California experience.

Soak up the native sunshine as you stroll the original buildings of UCLA’s North Campus (constructed from imported Italian brick) and then contrast that view with the ultra-modern buildings of South Campus, where the university’s science-related programs are based. Visit the Pauley Pavilion at center campus, as well as Ackerman Union and the Student Activities Center. Or journey a mile nearby to Bel Air and see the UCLA Hannah Carter Japanese Garden.

Sports Powerhouse: UCLA has won 125 national championship titles, more than any other university. Student athletes from UCLA have won more than 250 Olympic medals. (The school has had at least one competitor in every Olympics since 1928 and a UCLA athlete has captured gold in every Olympics since 1932.) Under famed coach John Wooden, UCLA men’s basketball teams won 10 NCAA championships, including seven consecutive titles (an NCAA record).

Famous Alumni: Oscar-winning film composer John Williams (Star Wars, Jaws) is an UCLA alumnus, as are actors James Franco (127 Hours), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption). UCLA alumni includes 105 Oscar winners and 278 Emmy Award winners. Musical groups that got their start at UCLA include Maroon 5, Linkin Park and The Doors. Fifteen Nobel laureates are associated with UCLA, as was Google VP Vint Cerf (often considered “the father of the Internet”) and Henry Samueli, co-founder of Broadcom Corp.

Campus in Starring Roles: UCLA’s campus has appeared in numerous films, including Legally Blonde (2001), Old School (2003), The Nutty Professor (1995), Erin Brockovich (2000) andAmerican Pie 2 (2001).

Local Attractions: Southern California is ideal for family vacations, with a huge variety of tourist attractions in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Anaheim. See Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and Grauman’s Chinese Theater or take a studio or network tour. Disneyland is close by, as is Universal Studios and other theme parks. Summertime sports include Major League Baseball with the L.A. Dodgers and the L.A. Angels (of Anaheim). And, of course, legendary beaches like Malibu are nearby, putting the Pacific Ocean within close reach for swimming, surfing and sailing.

Internationally Famous: UCLA is such a recognized and admired name that clothing carrying UCLA insignias not only sells with popularity across the U.S., but it also in high demand around the world — especially in East Asia. In fact, more than 40 UCLA stores are located in China, with other stores in Mexico, India and Europe. The University of California, Los Angeles is the flagship school of California’s state university program, as well as the state’s largest university. UCLA offers more than 300 undergrad and graduate degree programs in an almost endless number of academic disciplines. The university is organized into five undergraduate colleges, seven professional schools and four professional health science schools. Some of its leading academic programs include healthcare and nanotechnology. Considered the most selective public university in the U.S., UCLA’s enrollment consists of some 40,000 students — all of them proud to be called UCLA Bruins.
