College of the Canyon Buildings I

Buildings on the COC campus. 

North commons.  Fortunately, this is located somewhat north of central commons.  There is no south commons that I've seen.  Like Central commons, this is not located on the COC map.  Go figure. 

A clever sign.  Ugly as all get-out, but clever.  I though this was a C sign for the first umpteen times I happened on it.  C for Canyon or C for Cougars perhaps.  But on closer inspection, I realized this is actually a C (in aqua blue) O (in white) C (an un-name-able yellow as this is a family blog) sign.  The colors blend so well together. 

Maybe Hasley Hall?  Sorry if I got the name wrong. There are a number of pictures of this building in the blog. 

 Interior.  I'm sure all that red paint serves some function.  Perhaps keeping the building from falling down?  Note that all this red is interior not exterior. 

The intimidating Central Commons, source of COCs power.  Perhaps they could abbreviate this CeCo?  

The reverse uplift annex designed for increasing and decreasing student's elevation preparatory to entering classrooms. 

A beautiful spot.  This is a combination lecture and concert hall.  

Imagine the engineer's discussion about this one.  "Uh-oh Bob, they cut the girder to the wrong size at the shop."  "If we ship it back, we'll never finish this building."  "Easier to let it poke out of the wall."  And that's what they did, and then they painted it red.  This is the only exterior red building structural element on campus.
