Westwood's Mini-Construction Boom Rolls On

New, 6 comments

Even though the state of California is broke and has the worst credit rating of all 50 states, one of its premier public universities has managed to come up with a way to keep funding new buildings on its campus. The Daily Bruin reports that the sale of bonds will pay for the continued construction of a new Life Sciences building (see image) and a new police department on UCLA's Westwood campus. Apparently, the police HQ was seismically unfit and not friendly to the handicapped, while the current Life Sciences building is ill-equipped for modern research. A big bond sale a couple weeks back will help fund the construction of about 70 projects throughout the numerous campuses of the University of California. Sadly, student fees are still going up.
