New Information Kiosk Planned
A plan for an information kiosk on University Plaza to aid campus visitors has been unveiled in a notice to the California Coastal Commission. An 11-foot high, circular metal structure on a concrete base will rise on the southeast side of the palm tree in the planter near Cheadle Hall, said Project Manager DeeDee Cianola. Visitors would approach on the east side of the kiosk. Work will begin in July.
