The purchase of the Chapman-Wilshire schools in 1980 also included unused land in the northeastern part of the property, and plans were made to construct a new student services center on the unused property. Groundbreaking took place in 1982 for a $4.3 million, two-story, 39,000-square-foot Student Services Building, which opened in June 1984. The building was designed by the Blurock Partnership of Newport Beach, with many new innovative energy-conserving features integrated into the new structure. The Student Services Building eventually included the Bookstore, the Bursar’s Office, Admissions and Records, the Disabled Student Center/Learning Resource Services, the Counseling Center, the Job Placement Center, and EOPS (Extended Opportunities Program and Services). This is a photo of the new Student Center taken at night in 1990.
