Cal State Northridge's longtime dean of students had hoped to see a CSUN football stadium, basketball arena, a fraternity-sorority row and other trappings of a "first-class university" before he retired. But these and other projects have been delayed, largely because of neighbors' protests about traffic and noise. Dean Edmund T. Peckham, who will retire Sept. 20, said CSUN has "never gotten the kind of love other communities give their universities."

Cal State Northridge's student body president has resigned after confessing that she has not been a student at the school since taking office last year, university officials said Monday. Lynn Westlund, 23, told the university Saturday that she enrolled for the fall semester but was dropped from the school after she failed to cover a bounced check, officials said. "I knew the money was available if I asked anyone for a loan, but I was too proud," Westlund said Monday.

Nine hundred students who live in dorms at Cal State Northridge owed $1.4 million in outstanding rental fees at the beginning of the spring semester, and the former university housing director failed to inform top administrators about the debt, university officials said. "I am really appalled at the size of the deficiencies," said Edmund T. Peckham, vice president of student affairs, under whose jurisdiction university housing falls.

Eighty-five percent of graduating students polled last week at Cal State Northridge oppose plans for this year's graduation at the Hollywood Bowl, organizers of the student-run survey said Monday. A majority of the 922 students who responded to the survey also said they want to take from four to nine guests, instead of the three guests tentatively allowed by the university, said poll organizer Anthony Ashhurst, an Associated Students graduate senator. The university decided to hold the graduation in the bowl because the campus area normally used for the ceremony has been closed for construction.

Commencement ceremonies at California State University, Northridge, traditionally held in the evening, have been rescheduled to 9:30 a.m. this year by administrators who, while saying they want to escape the heat, concede that they also are trying to discourage drinking and "boisterous behavior." Student government leaders have protested the change, complaining that some graduates or their families will be unable to attend the ceremony on a weekday morning.

To Steve Mathews, a senior at California State University, Northridge, fraternity life on campus is different these days. It's "not as fun anymore," Mathews said. An atmosphere of fraternal roguery has been replaced by one of restraint, he said. "It's all changing, and you could feel it coming," said Mathews, who is majoring in management information systems. "When I 'rushed' back in '81, it was 10 nights of straight partying. You don't get that anymore.

Poor management of dormitories and apartments operated by Cal State Northridge has allowed hundreds of students over the past two years to skip out on about $2.8 million in unpaid rents, by far the worst record among the 20 campuses in the California State University system. About $1 million of the back rents has been recovered. But the university's record-keeping was so bad that last fall some students were allowed back into the dormitories even though they paid no rent the previous year.

For the last four years, Cal State Northridge officials have been rushing to build new campus housing facilities to meet a growing demand. But now, with the number of available spaces increased fivefold, many of the beds remain empty. After years of occupancy rates topping 90%, the rate dropped this fall to about 75%.
