Campus Enhancements

Several campus projects that contribute to the beautification and efficient use of space at CLU have been completed during the past few months.

“Creating inviting, attractive outdoor and indoor spaces where people can meet, converse, study and reflect are part and parcel of the Cal Lutheran experience,” points out Ritch Eich, Vice President for Marketing and Communications. “We are striving to create a very powerful first impression of the campus.”

Pederson Administration Building

Pederson Administration Building

The entry to the Pederson Administration Building has been redesigned to project a warm welcome to campus visitors. Attractive landscaping and patio areas now wrap around the south side of the building adjacent to the Admission offices. Comfortable seating enables the campus community and visitors to meet and enjoy the beauty of the campus.

All Nations Plaza

All Nations Plaza

The beautiful area created around the existing water fountain located between the bookstore and Hansen Center has been named All Nations Plaza. The brick and concrete surface, dotted with umbrella-shaded tables, enhances the main entrance to campus and offers an attractive place for conversation or relaxation. The new name reflects California Lutheran University’s commitment to educating leaders for a global society.

Paul Siegele ’80 created the plaza fountain his senior year to replace one built in the early 1960s by Art Norlin, the first Director of Facilities. The fountain is dedicated to this pioneer and the staff of the Facilities Department.

SUB/Mail Room

SUB/Mail Room

The interior of the Student Union Building has been renovated and equipped with additional study areas and an ATM. A new landscaped entry off of Regals Way allows students convenient access from either side of the building. An expanded mail room has been relocated to the east side of the old gymnasium, and student mail boxes are located just outside the mail room on the west side of the pavilion.

Graduate Center Signage

Graduate Center Signage

Caltrans recently placed California Lutheran University signs along the 101 Freeway at the Rice Avenue exits directing people to the Oxnard Graduate Center and at the DeSoto Avenue exits directing people to the Woodland Hills Graduate Center. The new signage not only simplifies locating the graduate centers but also gives great visibility to the University.
