November 12, 1986

For the first time in its 21-year-history, the University of California, Irvine, has a freshman class with more students from Los Angeles County than Orange County, and campus officials said the shift signaled a decline in student "parochialism." A recent statistical breakdown of this fall's 2,975 freshmen showed that 1,153 students are from Los Angeles County; 1,041 from Orange County; 700 from other California counties, and the remainder from various other states and foreign countries. Since it opened in 1965, UC Irvine has attracted predominantly Orange County students.
