Ever feel frustrated standing in line to buy new books and supplies in the UCI Bookstore in the first few weeks of a new year? Imagine what it was like in 1965 at the first UCI Bookstore:

New UCI students will want to explore the many fine beaches in Orange County. Below are historic photographs of three of the most popular beaches:

Main Beach in Laguna Beach in approximately 1920. Notice the old pier, which no longer exists.

The south side of the Huntington Beach pier ca. 1910, now the location of major surfing competitions including the annual U.S. Open of Surfing every August.

Beach scene along the Balboa Peninsula ca. 1930s.

Welcome Week 2010 is approaching, so we’ve pulled a few interesting photographs from Welcome Weeks of the past…

New students getting acquainted in the 1970s. Could the person in the middle be film actor, SNL alum, drama major and 1979 UCI graduate Jon Lovitz?

In 1980, the fabulous local punk/new wave band the Nu-Beams perform at Welcome Week.

Also from 1980, the Career Planning and Placement Center was giving away “a free record album” … Pat Benatar’s Crimes of Passion, wow!
