Panels making up Oxy's $6.8-million, 1-megawatt ground-mounted solar array, which went online in early March after almost four years in the works. With 70 percent of the panels mounted just above the ground on a southwest-facing hillside above Oxy's soccer fields, the array hugs the topography of the slope in a curving design based on a mathematical ­expression known as a hysteresis loop.

Grant from the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation to form a partnership between the Oxy library, the Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society, and the Highland Park Heritage Trust to preserve the archives of more than a dozen newspapers chronicling northeast Los Angeles, including the Eagle Rock Sentinel and Highland Park News Herald.

Innings in what is believed to be the longest game in the 119-year history of Oxy baseball—a 6-hour, 36-minute marathon that ended with the Tigers' 8-5 loss to Rutgers-Newark on March 23. (That's longer than both Dance Pro performances combined that same day.)

5,500,000
Sales to date for the single "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who rocked a packed Alumni Gymnasium for Springfest 2013 on March 7. Inclement weather forced the concert inside.
