Long Term Closure on PCH April 15, 2014 through April 2015

Traffic concerns ahead!

Please note a major construction project on PCH began on Tuesday, April 15.  This project will affect the commute to and from the Malibu campus for those living in Santa Monica and the surrounding communities.


The project will affect commutes during final exams.  You should plan accordingly.  In addition, for 1Ls and 2Ls choosing where to live next year, please note that the construction will affect traffic flow on the PCH throughout the next academic year.

One Southbound lane is closed along 900 feet of PCH between the Annenberg Beach House and The Beach Club between April 15, 2014 and April 2015 while workers expand sewer capacity.

Additionally, in September 2014, the California Incline will be closed for one year as significant repair work is undertaken.

In Doubt? Throw it Out!

virusWe all get emails from time to time in which we’re unsure if the content is safe to open. If you’re ever in doubt about the authenticity of an email, throw it out.

If in doubt, throw it out!


Opening a malicious email can cause problems to your computer, loss of data, and corruption of files. Opening a malicious attachment could also do a number of undesirable things such as installing a key logger to record your keystrokes, installing a virus, or even providing an intruder with remote access to your computer.

Not only is malicious email risky to your machine, but it causes problems to other computers connected to the same Internet connection. It’s not worth the risk to open emails that you are uncertain from where it originated.

Concerned about deleting something important? Typically, a sender will follow-up with you if they do not receive a response from you.
