The Eagle Rock Elementary School Library recently reopened after five years, thanks to Eagle Scout Brian Ellingford and volunteer work by teachers, parents and students. Budget cuts had forced the library, which had cracked walls, peeling paint and boxes of books waiting to be shelved, to close in 1986. Ellingford, a member of Boy Scout Troop 106 in Glendale and a former student at the school, restored the library as his Eagle Scout service project.

Susan Wilbur, UC's director of undergraduate admissions, described 2010 as the most competitive admissions cycle in UC history, caused mainly by a budget-related reduction in California freshman enrollment by 10% over two years.
