Ventura College celebrated its newly expanded satellite campus in Santa Paula with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday. The $1-million center, now known as the Ventura College East Campus, offers a range of vocational courses and serves as a job and career training center for the county's CalWORKS welfare-to-work program. In the fall semester, the campus will add a number of courses that carry university transfer credits, Assistant Dean Sandra Avalos said.

The Los Angeles Community College District has suspended all spending on new construction projects while it studies how to pay for building maintenance once it finishes its vast campus expansion program. State budget cuts have made it hard for the district to cover its growing maintenance costs as it opens scores of new buildings under its $5.7-billion bond program. The moratorium announced Monday by Chancellor Daniel LaVista will postpone or halt 67 projects planned by the district's nine colleges but not yet underway or under contract.

Chapman University offered Tuesday to purchase the Crystal Cathedral campus for $46 million as part of a proposal that would allow the bankrupt church to lease back its core buildings and repay debts sooner than the initial exit plan put forth two months ago. A draft of the school's offer, backed by the church's creditors committee, was filed in Bankruptcy Court in Santa Ana, along with a motion to end the church's exclusive right to present a...

It's becoming more common in the business world that established scientists, engineers and other working professionals return to college to further their careers through management training. And the number of Ventura County workers in that group was large enough to warrant the establishment of a satellite campus of Pepperdine University's School of Business and Management in Thousand Oaks.

Looking to expand its domain and spread its reputation, UC Irvine may open satellite branches in Orange County by 1991 to offer extension courses to more than 15,000 students, university officials said Wednesday. It would mark the first move by the university to create permanent academic complexes elsewhere in the county since the acquisition of its teaching hospital in Orange in the mid-1970s.

State finance officials rejected Mission College's new plan to acquire a satellite campus, but left open the possibility the school can retain a $4.7-million grant due to revert to the state Dec. 30. Mission President William Norlund said the state rejected the school's request Monday because it was too far removed from the original purpose of the grant, made in 1993, which was to complete the then 2-year-old campus.

A proposed satellite campus for Los Angeles City College has earned the district points with historic preservationists and could be the first major project using funds from a $1.25-billion bond recently approved by voters. A $30-million education center on the site of the landmark Van de Kamp's bakery in Glassell Park would make room for about 3,000 more students in an area considered underserved by the Los Angeles Community College District, said college President Mary Spangler.

Is it well done or half-baked? The latest thing to come out of Los Angeles' landmark Van de Kamp's bakery isn't to everyone's taste. The Los Angeles Community College District has completed a $72-million renovation of the Glassell Park home of the now-defunct Dutch-themed bakery that was known for its windmill-shaped cookies and Danish pastries. But budgetary problems have prevented district officials from opening a college satellite campus at the 4-acre site near Fletcher Drive and San Fernando Road as they had planned.

Los Angeles Community College District trustees agreed Wednesday to lease part of the historic Van de Kamp's Bakery property to a charter high school, amid protests that officials broke a promise by dropping plans for a satellite campus at the site. The Glassell Park property, the subject of a ferocious preservationist fight a decade ago, underwent a $50-million to $60-million rehabilitation that saved the bakery's landmark 16th century Dutch town house facade in preparation for a campus.

Los Angeles City College has abandoned plans to open a satellite campus at the renovated Van de Kamp's bakery site, the subject of a ferocious preservationist fight almost a decade ago. The Los Angeles Community College District adapted the building and its 16th century Dutch town-house facade for the college's use. Because of budget problems, however, the district will now turn the property over, most likely, to the Alliance for College-Ready Public...

Re "Analyzing El Toro Ballot Measure Results," Letters, Nov. 17: Huntington Beach resident Paul Arms says he supports the Great Park, he belongs to the Planning and Conservation League, which wrote the failed Proposition 51, and he laments that the law would have given money to Irvine, but not to other open space projects in Orange County, some of which he lists. Not mentioned in the Arms letter was Measure W, which created the Great Park, and, by voter sanction, significantly weakened the open space protection he cherishes.

Until the Marines pulled out, the aging but graceful building off Desert Storm Way served as the headquarters for an elite squadron of pilots. Now, the building at the mothballed El Toro Marine base is on the verge of rebirth. By the end of the month, Cal State Fullerton students will enroll in criminal justice, nursing, public administration, adolescent behavior and teacher-credential classes at the closed base.
