CSUCI stands for California State University Channel Islands, which is where The Professor is teaching computer science classes. The CSUCI campus used to be the grounds of a state mental hospital many years ago. According to the official website, some of the buildings were built seventy years ago.
The original buildings on the campus are California Mission style. The university is refurbishing as many of the old buildings as possible. The Professor's office and classroom are in one of them. As the new buildings are constructed, every effort is being made to build them to complement the Mission architecture.
Original Bell Tower
This is the old library building. A new one is being built. You can see the beautiful details on this building-- colorful tiles, wrought iron lights, stucco walls, red tile roof.
The Professor thinks the campus, nestled back against the Santa Monica Mountains, is a pleasant place to work.
