Another hearing was set Tuesday for the man suspected of posing as a talent scout to lure 14 UCLA students to his apartment and secretly videotaping his sexual assaults on them. Michael Peers, 50, is due back in court April 4. He remains jailed, with bond set at $38,500. Prosecutors and defenders said they are still reviewing evidence, but expect the trial to begin April 14. The UCLA women allegedly were lured to an apartment in 1998 with promises of jobs in the entertainment industry.

UCLA campus police are investigating a possible fraternity hazing incident that resulted in the hospitalization of two students, including an 18-year-old freshman who remained in critical condition Thursday, school officials said. The freshman, who is from San Jose, suffered possible kidney failure and was being treated at UCLA Medical Center's intensive care unit, said Robert Naples, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and campus life.
Not too long ago, linguistics professor Pamela Munro didn't know a "beauhunk" from a "goob." Then she started assigning her students at UCLA to collect slang terms. And last fall, after students in her Linguistics 88A seminar had collected and compiled an extensive list, they decided they had the makings of a book. The result, a dictionary called "U.C.L.A. Slang," is a hot item in the bookstore at "Pretty People University" (UCLA).
Cherokee Parks sprawls his legs across the seats at Pauley Pavilion and surveys an Olympic Festival women's basketball game on the court below. Parks is in the courtside bleacher seats, about where UCLA students usually sit. A forward-center on the festival's West team, he's awaiting the start of Saturday night's game against the South. When he returns to Pauley a few months from now, he won't be quite so comfortable.

The courtyard at Blacker House at Caltech was quiet at 6:59 a.m. Wednesday, the empty concrete space littered with several splintered wooden pallets, three large tires, a crowbar and sledgehammer. A minute later, the crescendo of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" came blaring out of second-floor speakers. Students began to emerge sleepily from their rooms, messy haired and mostly without shoes, their shoulders hunched against the early morning chill as they listened to about five minutes of music.
