The 411-acre campus has over 60% of its land devoted to lush green fields, tropical trees, flowers and plants. UCLA is one of the USA’s finest college campuses, academically, culturally, architecturally and recreationally.

Noted alumni include athletic superstars, political figures, Nobel Prize winners, actors, and musicians.
