The Power of Place

November 2007

"You guys have done the opposite of the Joni Mitchell song; you took a paved parking lot and put up a paradise." So said a visitor after touring UC's campus recently. This issue of the magazine showcases that paradise through photographs -- artistic endeavors from a new book, as well as archival photos that show how students have loved UC through the decades. We also discuss the ramifications of the new look beyond basic aesthetics. Discover why we call it the "power of place."
