The industrious anteater serves as the mascot of the University of California, Irvine, and this thoughtful website tells the story of the intense growth of its rather large campus. The materials here are culled from the official university archives, and the materials are divided into three sections: History, Place, and People. First-time visitors should click on the History area to get a sense of the institution’s growth. The site includes images from the "Early Years," including historic images of the campus site selection, the first day of classes in 1965, and media coverage from those early heady days. One rather fun area here is the UCI at the Movies section, which documents the campus's appearances on film, including guest appearances in "Poltergeist" and "Ocean's Eleven." The Place area brings together historic campus maps and architectural plans. Finally, the People area includes information about the chancellors on campus and stories from alumni, as well as accounts of students, faculty, and the community.
