Edwin W. Pauley Pavilion known as Pauley Pavilion, is an indoor arena located in the Westwood Village district of Los Angeles, California, on the campus of UCLA, it is home to women's basketball teams. The men's and women's volleyball and women's gymnastics teams compete here; the building, designed by architect Welton Becket, was dedicated in June 1965, named for University of California Regent Edwin W. Pauley, who had matched the alumni contributions. Pauley donated one fifth of the more than $5 million spent in constructing the arena; the arena was renovated in 2010-12 and was reopened on November 9, 2012 when it hosted a men's basketball game against Indiana State. Pauley Pavilion contains 11,307 permanent theater-style upholstered seats, plus retractable seats for 2,492 spectators, making a total basketball capacity of 13,800; the capacity prior to the renovation had been exceeded several times for several men's basketball games by adding portable seating alongside the retractable seats.
The Bruins reopened the newly renovated Pauley Pavilion on November 9, 2012 in front of a record crowd of 13,513. A new record was set when 13,727 fans watched the Bruins defeat the Arizona Wildcats 74–69 on March 2, 2013; when the floor seats are retracted, there is space for three full-sized basketball courts. These courts are used for team practice, intramural games, pickup basketball games, it can serve as a convention hall or large dining area when in this configuration. When used for men's volleyball, the basketball court is striped with colored tape; the volleyball net is erected at the half court line. The women's team uses blue and yellow Sport Court lined up perpendicularly to the basketball court tucked up to the east end of the court. There is a tunnel on the south side; this is the "backstage" entrance for players and broadcast personnel. The floor is called "Nell and John Wooden Court" in honor of former UCLA Men's Basketball Coach John Wooden and his wife Nell. From the opening of the building until 1987, the extra press not involved in the radio or television broadcasts sat behind the south side press table.
The working press moved to sit courtside at "press row" on the northern side of the court, as the south courtside seats were opened up to influential and affluent boosters. In 2003, the UCLA Athletic Department made available north side courtside seats to affluent donors; the media now sit higher up in permanent seating dead-center in the north side of the bleachers. The press move to the north side in 1987 was as controversial as the 2003 move, in that the student section was now behind the press table and big donors had taken the south side courtside seats; the student section has moved several times as well. Since 2003, the student section of 1,750 seats occupies the north side bleachers; the UCLA Varsity Band has moved to accommodate seating changes. They were located on the north courtside directly across from the UCLA bench. In 1984, they moved to the northeast corner courtside. In 1990 they moved to the north courtside directly across from the visitors bench. In 1996 they moved to the north side above the student section.
In 2003, they moved to the west side of the arena to be courtside. Before the construction of the Pavilion, the on-campus home to the UCLA Bruins men's basketball team was the 2,400-seat Men's Gym known as the Student Activities Center, but disparagingly known as the "B. O. barn." After John Wooden led the Bruins to the national championship in 1964, fans and Wooden felt that a more suitable arena needed to be constructed. However, it had been obvious before that the Bruins needed a new arena. Games that were expected to attract larger crowds were played at Pan Pacific Auditorium, the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and other venues around Los Angeles. Pauley Pavilion was constructed so that there would be some space between the crowds and the action on the court. Wooden cited the example of the close quarters of Cal's Harmon Gym where fans would "pull leg hairs from his players' legs". Kareem Abdul-Jabbar known as Lew Alcindor, was recruited to UCLA on the promise of playing in the new arena.
H. R. Haldeman headed the campaign to build a state-of-the-art sports arena. A million dollars was raised, matched by a donation from Edwin W. Pauley, a member of the Board of Regents of the University of California; the building was dedicated to Regent Edwin W. Pauley, at the June 1965 commencement ceremony by UCLA Chancellor Franklin D. Murphy; the facility opened for the 1965–1966 college basketball season. The first game played in Pauley Pavilion was on November 27, 1965, it featured the freshmen team, led by Lew Alcindor, against the UCLA varsity squad, the two-time defending champions and pre-season No. 1 team. The freshmen, led by Alcindor's 31 points and 21 rebounds, defeated the varsity team 75-60, a surprise considering the varsity squad had been chosen to finish number one in the nation in the preseason. Ohio State was the first visiting team in the regular season; the varsity Bruins defeated the Buckeyes in the inaugural game 92-66. Pauley Pavilion hosted its first NCAA Regional Finals in the 1969 post-season.
The Bruins advanced from there to win the 1969 Championship. John Wooden coached what would be his final game as varsity head coach in Pauley Pavilion March 1, 1975 in a 93-59 victory over Stanford. Four weeks he would announce his retirement following the NCA
Stephanie and Spy
Stephanie and Spy, is a sculpture by American artist Robert Graham, located in the Rolfe Hall Courtyard on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles, in Los Angeles, United States. The two-part, bronze sculpture was made in 1980-81 and depicts a nude woman standing next to a horse; each figure stands on its own pedestal positioned about 2 feet from each other. The sculpture is made in cast bronze and depicts two figures: one is Stephanie, a nude female, the other is Spy, a horse; each figure stands on its own pedestal and the pedestals are placed next to each other so the figures stand side by side, about two feet apart. Spy stands to the proper right of Stephanie. Both figures are looking forward. Spy's feet stand straight and parallel to each other, except for the proper left hoof, placed back from the plane of the proper right foot. Stephanie stands straight with her arms at her sides lifted away from her hips; the front of each of the pedestals are aligned despite the difference in the length of the sculpture and pedestal between the two figures.
The sculpture measurements are as follows: Stephanie 611⁄2 × 71⁄2 × 111⁄2 in. and Spy 711⁄4 × 133⁄4 × 55 in.. Stephanie and Spy is owned by the Hammer Museum, located on the University of California, Los Angeles campus; the sculpture was a gift to the museum from Roy Doumani. The sculpture is installed towards the center of the Rolfe Hall Courtyard on the UCLA campus, surrounded by 10 other works by Robert Graham: Fountain Figure I, 1983 Fountain Figure III, 1983 Lori, 1986 Olympic Torso, 1983 Olympic Torso, 1983 Sasha, 1993 Study for Column I, 1988 Study for Column II, 1988 Study for Column III, 1988 Untitled, 1977 Robert Graham Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Robert Graham Studio Hammer Museum Murphy Sculpture Garden, Hammer Museum, UCLA
UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture
The UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture is a professional school at the University of California, Los Angeles. Through the four degree-granting departments, it provides a range of course programs. Additionally, there are eight centers located within the school. In 1919, UCLA's leadership demonstrated an early commitment to offer students opportunities to explore the arts by the establishment of an art gallery and a music department, but in 1939 the College of Applied Arts was founded with the addition of a Department of Art, followed by the College of Fine Arts in 1960, with degrees available in art, dance and theater arts. Following academic restructuring in the late 1980s, the UC Regents formally approved the establishment of two schools: the School of the Arts and the School of Theater and Television. In 1994 architecture and urban design joined the School of the Arts, which became the School of the Arts and Architecture. Brett Steele was appointed dean of the School of the Arts and Architecture in 2017.

UCLA Bruins men's basketball
The UCLA Bruins men's basketball program represents the University of California, Los Angeles in the sport of men's basketball as a member of the Pac-12 Conference. Established in 1919, the program has won a record 11 NCAA titles. Coach John Wooden led the Bruins to 10 national titles in 12 seasons, from 1964 to 1975, including seven straight from 1967 to 1973. UCLA went undefeated a record four times. Coach Jim Harrick led the team to another NCAA title in 1995. Former coach Ben Howland led UCLA to three consecutive Final Four appearances from 2006 to 2008; as a member of the AAWU, Pacific-8 and Pacific-10, UCLA set a NCAA Division I record with 13 consecutive regular season conference titles between 1967 and 1979 which stood until passed by Kansas in 2018. UCLA men's basketball has set several NCAA records. 11 NCAA titles 7 consecutive NCAA titles 13 NCAA title game appearances* 10 consecutive Final Four appearances 25 Final Four wins* 38 game NCAA Tournament winning streak 134 weeks ranked No. 1 in AP Top 25 Poll 221 consecutive weeks ranked in AP Top 25 Poll 54 consecutive winning seasons 88 game men's regular season winning streak 13 consecutive Div-I regular season conference titles ** 4 undefeated seasons * 1980 tournament final vacated by NCAA ** Surpassed by Kansas in 2018 In 1919, Fred Cozens became the first head coach of the UCLA basketball and football teams.
Cozens coached the basketball team for two seasons, finishing with an overall record of 21–4. Caddy Works was the head coach of the Bruins from 1921 to 1939. Works coached the team only during the evenings. According to UCLA player and future Olympian Frank Lubin, Works was "more of an honorary coach" with little basketball knowledge. Wilbur Johns was the UCLA basketball head coach from 1939 to 1948, guiding the Bruins to a 93-120 record. From 1948 to 1975, John Wooden, nicknamed the "Wizard of Westwood", served as UCLA's head coach, he won ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period, including a run of seven in a row that shattered the previous record of only two consecutive titles. Within this period, his teams won a men's basketball-record 88 consecutive games. Prior to Wooden's arrival, UCLA had only won two conference championships in the previous 18 years. In his first season, Wooden guided a UCLA team that had finished with a 12–13 record the previous year to a 22–7 record—then the most wins in a season in program history—and the Pacific Coast Conference Southern Division championship.
In his second season, Wooden led the Bruins to a 24 -- the PCC championship. The Bruins would win the division title in each of the next two seasons and the conference title in the latter season. Up to that time, UCLA had won only two division titles since the PCC began divisional play, it had not won a conference title of any kind since winning the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1927. In 1955–56, Wooden guided the Bruins to their first undefeated PCC conference title and a 17-game winning streak that only came to an end in the 1956 NCAA Tournament at the hands of a University of San Francisco team that featured Bill Russell. However, UCLA was unable to maintain this level of performance over the immediate ensuing seasons, finding itself unable to return to the NCAA Tournament as the Pete Newell-coached California teams took control of the conference at the end of the decade. Hampering the fortunes of Wooden's team during that time period was a probation imposed on all UCLA sports in the aftermath of a scandal involving illegal payments made to players on the school's football team, along with USC, Cal and Stanford, resulting in the dismantling of the PCC conference.
By 1962 the probation was no longer in place and Wooden had returned the Bruins to the top of their conference. This time, they would take the next step, go on to unleash a run of dominance unparalleled in the history of college sports. A narrow loss due to a controversial foul call in the semifinal of the 1962 NCAA Tournament convinced Wooden that his Bruins were ready to contend for national championships. Two seasons the final piece of the puzzle fell into place when assistant coach Jerry Norman persuaded Wooden that the team's small-sized players and fast-paced offense would be complemented by the adoption of a zone press defense; the result was a dramatic increase in scoring, giving UCLA a powerhouse team led by Walt Hazzard and Gail Goodrich that went undefeated on its way to the school's first basketball national championship. Wooden's team repeated as national champions the following season before the squad fell in 1966 when it finished second in the conference to Oregon State. UCLA was ineligible to play in the NCAA tournament that year because in those days only conference champions went to the tournament.
However, the Bruins' incarnation returned with a vengeance in 1967 with the arrival of sophomore All-America and MVP Lew Alcindor. The team reclaimed not only the conference title but the national crown with an undefeated season. In January 1968, UCLA took its 47-game winning streak to the Astrodome in Houston, where Alcindor squared off against Elvin Hayes in the Game of the Century, the nation's first nationally televised regular season college basketball game. Houston upset UCLA 71-69 behind Hayes' 39 points. In a post-game interview, Wooden stated, "We have to start over." They did, went undefeated the rest of the year, avenging Houston 101-69 in the semi-final rematch of the NCAA tournament en route to the national championship. Hayes, who had bee
UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science
The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, informally known as UCLA Engineering, is the school of engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. It opened as the College of Engineering in 1945, was renamed the School of Engineering in 1969. Since its initial enrollment of 379 students, the school has grown to 6,100 students; the school is ranked 16th among all engineering schools in the United States. The school offers 28 degree programs and is home to eight externally funded interdisciplinary research centers, including those in space exploration, wireless sensor systems, nanotechnology; the school was renamed for its alumnus and professor Henry Samueli, who received his B. S. M. S. and Ph. D in Electrical Engineering there. Samueli is co-founder and chief technology officer of Broadcom Corporation and a philanthropist in the Orange County community, he and his wife Susan donated $30 million to the school in 1999. It was at UCLA that Dr. Henry Nicholas and Dr. Henry Samueli met and formed Broadcom.
The main building is Boelter Hall, named after Llewellyn M. K. Boelter, a Mechanical Engineering professor at UC Berkeley who became the first Dean of the school, he "often took an active role in the lives of the school's students, his approach to engineering impacted many of their careers," according to the school. He was succeeded by Chauncey Starr, a pioneer in nuclear power development. HSSEAS is housed in two other buildings: Engineering IV, Engineering V, which houses the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Engineering I was demolished in August 2011, to be replaced by Engineering VI, which will house the Western Institute of Nanotechnology on Green Engineering and Metrology in 2014; the ground breaking ceremony for Engineering VI building was held October 26, 2012 with Congressman Henry A. Waxman and Henry Samueli. On March 19, 2015, Engineering VI phase I was dedicated and phase II broke ground with the help of James L. Easton, class of'59 alumnus.
The school is credited as the birthplace of the Internet, where the first message was sent to a computer at Stanford University on October 29, 1969 by Professor Leonard Kleinrock and his research team at UCLA. On September 29, 2008, President George W. Bush presented the 2007 National Medal of Science to Kleinrock for "his fundamental contributions to the mathematical theory of modern data networks, for the functional specification of packet switching, the foundation of Internet technology, his mentoring of generations of students has led to the commercialization of technologies that have transformed the world." Room 3420 at Boelter Hall, where the first message was sent, has been converted into The Kleinrock Internet Heritage Site and Archive. UCLA conferred its first Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering in 1947, its first Master of Science degree in 1948, its first Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1950. Annual Engineering commencement ceremonies are held in June at Pauley Pavilion. HSSEAS has seven departments and one interdepartmental program, which are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
