CSUN Quake Bulletin to Assist Students
To allay the confusion and frustrations of students, faculty and staff members of Cal State Northridge as start their second semester amid massive quake repairs, the university’s public relations office has published 50,000 copies of the Earthquake Recovery Bulletin.
An upbeat update on the status of the buildings, parking and shuttle service, the four-page document will be available to the public at news racks and information kiosks throughout campus, according to CSUN spokeswoman Carmen Ramos Chandler.
The bulletin includes tidbits of quake humor such as politically correct euphemisms for the Jan. 17 disaster: “stability challenged” and “geological resource reallocation.”
“It has a positive tone,” Chandler said. “You have to get to the point that you can laugh at it.”
Chandler said the bulletin will be published each semester until all the “directional disproportionment” repairs have been completed.
