It is the home of California State University, Northridge, as well as eleven public and eight private schools. The settled community, originally named Zelzah, was renamed North Los Angeles in 1929. However, this change created confusion with nearby North Hollywood. At the suggestion of a civic leader, the community was renamed Northridge in 1938.
