Comedy of Underwearers

No, it's not a remake of beach blanket bingo. This is Westwood's newest tradition, the Undie Run. Begun in 2002, the Run has grown so popular that thousands of underclad Bruins now participate, racing across campus in their skivvies on the Wednesday night of finals week every quarter. It will doubtless come as no surprise to readers that the university keeps a wary eye on the popular event, allowing it to continue as long as nothing unsafe or illegal occurs. And in fact, to minimize the potential for mischief, UCLA officials mandated a route change in 2005 and the Run, begun on the streets of Westwood, now takes place entirely within campus borders.
