Bringing the

Legends to Life

The Daily Bruin Photography department decided to put a twist on a series of well-known UCLA urban legends. These myths have piqued the interest of incoming UCLA freshman during their orientation tour, as they attempted to decipher between reality and fiction. The following five photo illustrations depict what UCLA would be like if the legends were true.

Janss Steps The iconic Janss Steps h ides a d a rk secret. A fter a feud over the design of the steps, one of the late Janss brothers requested that his body be buried underneath the sixth step to prevent his brother from remov i n g the st a i rs. Since then, stepping on the sixth step has been said to bring bad luck. Decades later, on a n eerie summer night, the hand of that same Janss brother pierces through the sixth step.

Jim Morrison’s Locker Back in the ’60s, when T he Doors f ront m a n Jim Morrison attended UCLA, he used a locker on the fourth floor of the Math Sciences Building. Between classes, Morrison had a habit of licking LSD-laced stamps and sticking them on the front of his locker. Students have reported hearing the ghostly sound of Morrison’s voice echoi n g th rou g h the halls of Math Sciences late at night.

Bruin Paw Years ago, a superstit iou s s t udent fou nd himself in an unfortunate situation: He woke up two hours late to a final for a crucial class. Forgetting his lucky rabbit’s foot in a hurry, the student instead decided to rub the Bruin statue’s paw for good luck. The student aced his final and went on to become an academic urban legend. Nowadays, desperate students line up on Bruin Walk during finals week in order to receive the paw’s good grace.

Bunche Hall The California Highway Patrol began noticing an increase in motor accidents after Bunche Hall was constructed. After much investigation, the spike in collisions was attributed to the reflections of sunlight onto the 405 from the building’s windows. To remedy the situation, UCLA rented helicopters to physically rotate the Bunche Hall. This architectural feat is documented on The History Channel’s Modern Marvels.

Public Affairs T he P ubl ic A f fa i r s building holds a wellkept secret. Unknown to the majority of UCLA undergraduates, on the roof of Public Affairs lies an Olympic-sized swimm i n g pool, reser ved solely for the leisure of graduate students and professors. Despite the noise produced by the infamous weekly themed parties hosted there, the pool has remained a secret due to its zero undergraduate student tolerance policy.
