"Hail to the Hills of Westwood" is the school song or alma mater of the University of California, Los Angeles. It was written by Jeane Emerso, a 1929 graduate of UCLA,[1] and adopted by the school in 1960;[2] the current arrangement performed by the UCLA Marching Band was written by band member Dwayne S. Milburn for the 1985 football season.[2]

Until 1925, UCLA shared the University of California alma mater, Hail to California!. "Hail Blue and Gold", written by a UCLA student in 1925, preceded "Hail to the Hills of Westwood", and was the school song until 1960.[2]
