SAN MARCOS : Design Official at CSUSM Resigns Post

The Cal State San Marcos administrator who helped design the new campus announced his resignation Thursday, saying he wants to "diversify his architectural career."

Albert M. Amado, assistant vice president for architecture and construction, described his work at Cal State San Marcos as "the peak of my career" but said he experienced the "fatigue and frustration of trying to do so much so quickly, in a period of debilitating financial uncertainty, university personnel friction . . . as well as the usual design and construction oversight agency demands."

Amado said he has begun talking with "several international universities" about jobs.

The new campus opened in August with two lecture halls, a science hall and an administration building that is nearing completion. A second complex of buildings is now in the design stage.
