Coronation 48 Weekend
A note about Coronation 48 weekend.
Due to the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic, we are hosting an amended coronation weekend experience. We will host as many events as possible this year while still honoring the rich traditions of the UCLSE established and enhanced since its founding in 1978. We encourage attendees to be vaccinated, and we welcome masks. We hope you will join us in the spirit of community and celebration this year with the hopes of returning to our hotel-based program next year.
