Seriously, that's going up on Hearst, across the street (or close) from the old Tolman? Or is that next to Etcheverry? Wow in either case.
Yup, corner of Hearst and Gayley where the parking garage currently sits.

Wow, okay then. I recognized the tudor building next door.
YMMV. Have a nice day. Enjoy the sunshine. Smoke two joints. That's what she said.

Dude, you are kiling me. I was almost a virgin at Cal until I had extra tix to the 82 Big Game at the Farm. Dated the Kappa and married the roommate
82 BG was at Strawberry Canyon, maybe virgin status is still up in the air, not like there's anything wrong with it.

I knew I should have looked that sh** up. In any event, it was. Rainy **** show down there and I'm still married to the kappa roommate afrer 30 years and don't do the damn math. The kappa was smarter and a brunette but the blonde 1680 SAT with 32 c cups poli sci major was ok.
Hope the kappa doesn't read this board

It's like a Vegas hotelier opened up a college.

"Welcome to beautiful Venice!"

Actually, was Rick Caruso involves in this? Because it has all the fauxness of a Caruso project.


It is my understanding that the surrounding community has
benefitted greatly from the employment opportunities.
Of course. But that's neither here nor there.


Well, that is certainly Cal's philosophy with regard to its surrounding community.
And what's Cal's philosophy on taking bribes to let in unqualified dunderheads into its school.

Seriously, you choose today to continue to your love affair with USC AND take shots at Cal? I see that USC humility has rubbed off on you.
SC financed this the old fashioned way, through donations for naming rights. Enjoy you next visit to Haas, Hearst, Bowles, etc. Glass houses anyone?

One interesting sidelight to Caruso is the progressive (politically) developer is in trouble with a more conservative, old line group of trustees, lead by fellow billionaire developer Ed Roski, who want him removed.

Marshall's Advisory Board Urges Ouster Of USC Board Chair Caruso http://disq.us/t/3arm06x

UPDATE: USC Board Flap: Roski Chastised Caruso Over Meeting Conduct | Los Angeles Business Journal http://www.labusinessjournal.com//news/2019/jan/16/usc-board-flap-roski-chastised-caruso-over-meeting/
damm....I missed this soap opera. What is the beef with the Dean of the Business school?
In your defense, it is rather hard to keep track of all their scandals.

He was fired by the interim President after a report from a sexual harassment oversight committee said he wasn't doing enough to stop complaints against B-school faculty members. (tThe Dean himself was never accused of impropriety). A split Board of Trustees led by Caruso affirmed the Interim Presidents decision. The faculty thought the action was too strong and arbitrary and all of them demanded Caruso and the Interim President be removed. The B-school which is about 50% of the undergrad student body, and a fair number fo grad students, is somewhat in open rebellion (SC people probably can provide a better understanding of events). Roski and other old line board members are considered to be behind the faculty action and there is a major power tussle going on now with the Board of Trustees - hence no new President. The optics of Aunt Becky's daughter's being on Caruso's boat can't help.

I hate to return to the subject of University Village, but there is nothing wrong with what SC did (you get an up star from me if you don't like the style of the buildings) and other schools are trying to emulate this. You might want to think about that when you watch the construction planned by Cal around Berkeley and in Richmond.

Looks like a great project, though to put it politely, it is not my taste in architecture.

Looks like it is built over the upper Hearst garage at the corner of Hearst and Gayley/La Loma--across from Founder's Rock. Interesting concept. Doesn't look too bad to me.

I thought I'd take a peek at the SC board, and top post asking if they should fire their coach...

What do you do when your coach is a great recruiter, but can't coach?

Serious question, what do we do? Coach Enfield has brought more talent to USC basketball program than any recent coach. Yet the talent does not develop. Watching SC play basketball is painful. Rakocevic can be great or horrible, but when he's horrible Enfield keeps playing him. Nick never blocks anyone out and mostly gets rebounds when no one battles him. Thornton is a disaster and everyone can see that Weaver was the better player this season.


I can cite other examples that highlight general deficiencies in Enfield's coaching, but what is the point? I don't think anyone thinks Enfield is a good X and O guy. That being said, I honestly don't know what the resolution is. We have such a great recruiting class coming in, maybe the talent can overcome the lack of coaching. It would be horrible to fire Enfield and lose this epic class.

You obviously have never seen Rick in action. The Berkeley crowd would love him. He repeatedly uses words/phrases like optics, empowerment, proof of concept, transparency, etc. when discussing a real estate project. Super good in front of groups like local city councils who just eat this up. If you have never met Roski, he is old school and likely want to throw-up when he hears any of this. If only to be a fly on the wall during Trustee meetings....

We had maid service at Bowles many years ago. A sheet change once a week, with the top sheet going to the bottom and a clean one on the top; and so on week after week.
