Deirdre Newman The university's increasing popularity has led to the largest enrollment increase in its history. UC Irvine officials attribute this fall's 8.7% increase -- about 1,900 students -- to a top-down effect, starting with an increase in graduate students -- up 11.7% over the previous year. "I think it's success building on success," said Manuel Gomez, vice chancellor of undergraduate affairs. "We have outstanding faculty recruits that have established now-nationally recognized academic programs, which have recruited a lot of graduate students, and that in turn leads to the campus being a first choice for everyone."

Deirdre Newman UC Irvine professor Brad Killaly considers himself one of the toughest graders at the Graduate School of Management. His students agree, but also consider him one of the most effective teachers. Based on course evaluations from the last school year, Killaly received an award for teaching excellence and a $10,000 cash prize last month. Receiving the Charles and Twyla Martin Award for Teaching Excellence illustrates the depth of UCI students' commitment to their education, Killaly said.

We hear so much about how to pick a college, so let's address how not to pick a college. When we ask our students if they have a particular major or career interest, one of three things happens. Usually, we get a blank stare. Sometimes, the student whips out a detailed résumé illustrating his undying love for, say, architecture. And then, there are those students who want to major in pre-med, pre-law, pre-education, pre-everything. Rule No. 1: Don't narrow the field based on the availability of a pre-anything major.

Deirdre Newman The school of social sciences has hired one of its own, a nationally known expert on the mechanics of how the mind works, as its new dean. Barbara Dosher was named dean in July and replaces William Schonfeld, who ran the school for two decades. While Schonfeld had the longevity to build the school into one of the university's crown jewels, Dosher said she would like to continue the focus on excellence maintained by her predecessor.

I read of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District trustees' decision in Thursday morning's Daily Pilot ["11 expelled in CdM cheating episode," Jan. 30]. Of course I support this decision. These students had zero conscience and were out to beat the system without having to study and work hard to meet those goals. My concern is mostly with the position expressed by Newport Harbor High School student, Isabel Jorgensen: I wouldn't want this pack of cheats transferred to my high school either.

After almost 20 months writing about Newport Beach politics for the Newport Beach Independent, here I am "gracing" (a term I use liberally) the pages of the infamous Daily Pilot. If you're not familiar with my work, I'm sure you are reading this wondering who I am and why am I here. Fair questions. I grew up in Huntington Beach and went to college at UC Irvine and graduate school at the University of Hawaii. My accounting office is in Costa Mesa, and I live in Newport Beach.

Geocaris and Langer will be assistant coaches for the Lightning girls' tennis team this fall.

Just as we start to get despondent about a sports page that reads like the business section or even worse, the crime beat, along comes a new refreshing young star to give us excitement and hope. Jeremy Lin is the hottest sensation in the NBA this year and his story is compelling. He grew up in Palo Alto and starred as a point guard for his high school team. His team actually beat Mater Dei High in a dramatic matchup. The Asian-American value system and priorities are very similar to Jewish families.

Pace was never a problem for Trevor Kronemann as a player. The UC Irvine men's tennis coach was a four-time All-American for the Anteaters from 1987 to 1990 and he went on to play nine seasons on the ATP Tour, terrorizing opponents with a power game that, along with his linebacker-like physique, earned him the nickname "The Tank. " But when it comes to the myriad duties of managing a program, obstacles can arise quickly to slow what Kronemann still hopes can be a climb to the top for his alma mater.
