  • 1913 the "R" was established, located on a hillside of the San Bernardino Mountains. It is believed to be one of the largest collegiate letters in the nation, standing 415 feet tall and 275 feet wide. For many years, freshmen were "required" by the seniors to clear the overgrown brush around the "R." It was then lit for Homecoming with highway flares-a display, viewed from Ad Hill, that many alumni still talk about and remember fondly
