A handful had dreamed of attending the University of California, La Jolla, the name given this brave new campus by the Board of Regents in 1959. Eighteen months later, after listening to community debate, the Regents voted to scrap UCLJ for the more inclusive UCSD (Morgan, 2004).
"La Jolla was a place that banned land ownership by Jews or minorities," [former Revelle College Provost F. Thomas Bond] said. "Putting that together [with] a university system that was largely liberal made for some interesting times" (Nguyen, 2006).
