COVID-19 Updates

The latest announcement from UCLA stated that Fall quarter is online. Nothing is confirm for Winter quarter yet. Currently, we are planning for to host our trips in an online format. If, by Winter quarter, the things are looking well, we possibly can host our trips in person. AB is committed to the safety of its participants. Therefore, we will be sure that all participants are provided with the necessary supplies for safety such as masks and hand sanitizer. Additionally, we will monitor the situation at the time of spring break and make all necessary modifications to the trips to keep everyone safe.
