The University of California, Irvine was founded in 1965 on a site known as The Irvine Ranch in Orange County. The UCI campus is approximately five miles from the Pacific Ocean and covers approximately 1,500 acres. The campus buildings uniquely form two concentric circles that surrounds Aldrich Park, a 21-acre park that features trees and shrubs from all around the world. Word has it that the two concentric circles is a metaphor of one's progess from the inner circle to the outer circle to beyond the UCI campus, the world.
