UC Riverside sprouted from a spell of contemplating the navel, the orange variety first cultivated there in 1873. In 1907, it brought forth the US Citrus Experiment Station. That grew into today's 1,200-acre campus, which researched biological pest control and now holds extensive collections on citrus diversity, science fiction and photography. Some 550 faculty teach around 19,300 students.
