The University of California, Los Angeles (also known as UCLA) was founded in 1881 as the Los Angeles branch of the California State Normal School. In 1919 the school obtained university status and became the Southern Branch of the University of California, located at 855 N. Vermont Avenue. In 1927 the name was changed to the University of California at Los Angeles. On May 31, 1929 the university opened its new campus in Westwood on land sold for $1 million dollars. In 1958, the name changed slightly again when the "at" was dropped, and became simply University of California, Los Angeles or UCLA. Today, UCLA has the largest enrollment of any university in the state.
