If there is one thing that Circle K knows best, it's fellowship. Members get the chance to build connections and develop life-long relationships with fellow collegians, advisors, Kiwanians, and citizens in their communities. UCI Circle K has a family system implemented where members are grouped up with their "brothers" and "sisters." The bigs of each family plan social events throughout the year for their littles, and these small interactions turn into long-lasting friendships. There is also a mentor-mentee program where new Circle K members are paired with older Circle K members. This allows newer members to learn more about what Circle K has to offer them while bonding with their mentors.

Family Day is a day where every single UCI Circle K family gets together and hang out, eat food, and have fun. Come bond with your current family and make friends from members of other families! Family Day takes place once every quarter, and is planned by the Family Heads in an effort to bring together all UCI Circle K members into one, big family in and of itself.
"Family day is a joyous day of being with our families and our Circle K family. This day is filled with positive energy, radiant love, and a whole lot of fun. Family Day is a special day of powerful bonding, humorous activities, and creating a 'home' feeling within our families and UCI Circle K." - Alan Nguyen
"As a new member, Family Day was the first big Circle K event I went to. I bonded with my family and I met other cool people from different families too. Winning the sponge battle for my family was a plus!" - Chelsea Kim

General Member retreat is a retreat dedicated to thank all of the general members for their efforts through service, leadership and fellowship for the Circle K term. This year, the venue was in a beach house located in Oxnard, CA. This event was packed with many activities such as shopping, beach sports, and late night board games.
"I was actually invited to this at my first Circle K social ever! Despite not even starting my first quarter at UCI, I took a chance and signed up to drive. First of all, that drive was AMAZING. The people in my car ended up being some of the most significant people in my life. At the retreat itselfeI met even more people, including people from both the appointed and executive board. The whole experience was honestly life changing. I know that's said alot about things like this but as my first Circle K retreat, I got to build friendships and relationships with people that helped me get integrated not only into Circle K but College in general. Whether it be through board games, early morning breakfasts, trips to the local mall, or photoshoots on the beach for profile pics, this retreat offered so many opportunities for me to get to know members of the club as more than just members; I got to know them as friends." - Jefferson Perez
