The Northridge earthquake left many buildings unusable, with classes moved to the Science Village and Library Village, said Rocky Young, the college's vice president of planning and development.

Elementary, middle and high schools in the San Fernando Valley have overcrowding to deal with, but Pierce's problem has been the opposite. Enrollment over the past decade had dropped by half.

Re "Thoughtful Plan for Pierce," Valley Edition Editorials, Oct. 1. While I agree that Pierce College's new president, Rocky Young, is doing a great job of looking at alternatives and options for the future of Pierce, I take exception to your insinuation that the community is motivated only by "nostalgia" in its love of Pierce. You fail to realize that if there had been no community outcry or protection of Pierce for over the past 25 years, there would be no Pierce College left to protect.
