The body of a man was found Tuesday at the base Boelter Hall on the UCLA campus, officials said. UCLA police are investigating but released few details. UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton said officials don't know if the body is that of a staff member, student or visitor.

The northern half of the UCLA campus was without electrical power for 75 minutes this morning, when problems occurred on a 34,500-volt Department of Water and Power electrical line and an automatic transfer switch designed to restore power. No injuries occurred, and the UCLA Medical Center was not affected, said university spokesman Harlan Lebo. Some classes and faculty meetings had to be conducted outside until power was restored at 10:10 a.m.

A clarification is in order regarding my family's philanthropic activities on behalf of UCLA, which were the focus of a Times article on May 23. The article implied that my wife, Gloria, and I are upset with UCLA for requesting that we give permission for our names to be removed from Griffin Commons. This is not at all true. The donation of the commons building was meant to be the capstone of 30 years of involvement at UCLA. Unfortunately, the real estate recession led to financial reverses and we were unable to fulfill our pledge in a timely manner.

Self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan was arrested at UCLA twice Monday, first in the afternoon outside a child development building on suspicion of violating a statewide restraining order prohibiting him from coming within 10 yards of any child in California. He was detained again about 10:20 p.m. after UCLA police saw McClellan, 45, being interviewed on a TV newscast while standing in a campus parking lot. A university spokesperson said McClellan was booked for trespassing.

The experience of arriving at the Southland's most prestigious public institution is frightening. The main entrance to UCLA is a progression past hideously ugly behemoths that leads to a plaza lost between concrete bunkers. You would never imagine that somewhere up on the hill there is a proper campus with graceful buildings. It is not that the university has not tried, at least in recent years: There is much good landscaping, and newer buildings elsewhere on campus are getting better.

There was an Extra! on the UCLA campus Tuesday. UCLA officials this week took steps to protect statues on campus from USC pranks. The school's bear statue was in a box, as was the statue of former basketball coach John Wooden. So USC students went William Randolph Hearst on UCLA, striking at the fourth estate. USC students, presumably the crosstown ink-stained wretches, hit the UCLA campus early Monday morning, dumping out the Daily Bruin from newspaper racks and leaving UCLA students with the Daily Trojan for their reading pleasure.

New University of California President Janet Napolitano received a mixed reception Friday during her first official visit to UCLA, facing protesters who dislike her past policies as U.S.  secretary of Homeland Security but also meeting with student leaders who praised her as listening to their concerns. Napolitano came to the Westwood campus for a series of private meetings with students, faculty and administrators. Since taking over the presidency two weeks ago, she has been touring the 10-campus system and learning more about its finances, massive facilities and programs.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials are asking for the public's help in finding a "rare and valuable bicycle" stolen earlier this year from a Lancaster home. The bicycle, an almost century-old Indian Deluxe, was stolen March 4, authorities said. The red bike was made between 1914 and 1917 and was in "excellent condition" when it was stolen, according to authorities.  “The exact value of the bicycle is not known, however it is priceless to its owner,” said the Lancaster station's burglary suppression team, which is handling the case.

UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute, or CNSI for short, is the first Los Angeles project by the New York-based architect Rafael Vinoly. It is something of a stealth building. Its broad, low facade, overlooking the Court of Sciences near the southern edge of the UCLA campus, has a modesty that borders on the bland. Sure, the cantilevered glass-and-metal box protruding from the third floor is enough to catch your eye.

A panel of federal circuit judges ruled Thursday that a UCLA-run elementary school may continue to select its students by race because it is a research-oriented laboratory school dedicated to improving the quality of education in California. The 2-1 ruling issued by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is fairly narrow legally, upholding a U.S. District Court judge's opinion that to do credible research the Corinne A.
