When Steven G. Mihaylo made a multimillion-dollar pledge to help build Cal State Fullerton's new business school quarters, there was celebration at the university. It was the largest donation in the school's history, and it came from an alumnus who had transformed himself from a high school dropout to the founder of a publicly traded telecommunications and software corporation. The building was to be named Steven G. Mihaylo Hall.

To many of us, economics is that subject we struggled with in college and then gladly purged from our memories when we left. Way too complicated and, frankly, kind of boring. Then you grow up and wish you'd paid a lot more attention to how it all works. Luckily, people like Anil Puri weren't daydreaming in class. Not only was he paying attention, he loved it and has devoted a good part of his career to trying to explain it to people.

What's in a name? A lot, at least at two engineering schools in Southern California named after high-tech billionaire and generous donor Henry Samueli. The Samueli name could be stripped from engineering schools at UCLA and UC Irvine as a result of his recent guilty plea to a felony charge of lying to financial regulators. A review of the issue is being launched by the University of California's general counsel, officials said.
