Recent Campus Messages from the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs 


November 9, 2018

Dear Students,

Yesterday state officials closed Highway 101 in Camarillo (approximately 60 miles south of our campus) in both directions due to a brush fire. As of this morning, there are fires burning in multiple places around the state and various road closures on major highways.  In some cases traffic is being diverted to alternative routes and we encourage students who are planning to travel south this weekend to check on road and rail conditions before leaving. Information for Ventura and surrounding areas is available at If you are traveling to other parts of the state, please check official web sites for updates.

The fires pose no threat to our campus, and University operations are unlikely to be affected. Campus officials, however, are in touch with local public safety and government officials and we will send updates as necessary. The campus will also post updates on

We don’t anticipate any electrical outages at this time due to the fires, but it is always a good idea to have flashlights available and to frequently save the work on your computer.  

If you are traveling by car this weekend, please be alert and drive safely. 



Margaret Klawunn, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
