For nearly 100 years, UCLA has been a pioneer, persevering through impossibility, turning the futile into the attainable. We doubt the critics, reject the status quo and see opportunity in dissatisfaction. Our campus, faculty and students are driven by optimism. It is not naive; it is essential. And it has fueled every accomplishment, allowing us to redefine what's possible, time after time. This can-do perspective has brought us 12 Nobel Prizes, 12 Rhodes Scholarships, more NCAA titles than any university and more Olympic medals than most nations.
