Cal State L.A. Breaks Ground for New State-of-the-Art Building

On Monday, July 23, California State University, Los Angeles broke ground for construction of its new University Auxiliary Services (UAS) building, which replaces the former Eagles' Landing cafeteria.

Along with representatives from Wou/Tate Snyder Kimsey, the project's architects, University representatives attending the groundbreaking included: Cal State L.A. President James M. Rosser; Raquel N. Soriano, executive director of University Auxiliary Services; Allen A. Mori, president of UAS Board of Directors; Steven N. Garcia, Vice President for Administration and Finance; J. Patrick Drohan, CSU deputy senior director of Physical Planning and Development; William A. Taylor, professor of physics and chair of the Academic Senate; Natoya Blaylock, student government president (Associated Students, Inc.); Ali Izadian, director of Facilities Planning and Construction; and Sarab Singh, facilities planner and project manager.

The new UAS building, envisioned as a "one-stop shop" for the campus community, is scheduled for completion by January 2003. The facility will have food court equipped to serve 750 people, a banquet/conference center with state-of-the-art technology for 600, and Barnes & Noble's West Coast showcase campus bookstore, which will be larger than the University's current store. UAS administrative offices, Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, Extended Education's American Culture and Language Program, and other commercial services will be tenants of the new building.
