Letters to the Editor
“[Cal State L.A.] was the best nine years of night school I ever spent in my life…How I treasured every professor in that political science department (1973 to 1981)! Go Diablos!”
-Barbara Bert ’81
“I picked up a copy [of the fall 2010 issue of Cal State L.A. TODAY] on campus today, when I joined the Alumni Association. I was a fellow student of [Tommy] Lister in ’81 and ’82, but I didn’t have a clue. I had my ’82 yearbook on campus, and thumbing through saw the picture and write-up of his winning title, as mentioned in the article. I took a photo of the cover next to the yearbook photo for a post on my blog about my trip to the campus.”
-Kiril Kundurazieff ’82
“I enjoyed reading about ‘Making a difference, one village at a time.’ I am a graduate of Cal State L.A. and I was also a Peace Corps Volunteer in Belize, Central America, from 1981 to 1983.”
-Christopher A. Cornell ’80
“It would be refreshing and interesting if you would cover my era. I never thought of myself as an alumnus of your school, it does not bear the name of the school that I graduated from nor has any written communication in the past had the name of Cal State Los Angeles. If I can still remember correctly at one time I got an e-mail of an offer to get a new diploma, but it would not have the date of my graduation. ‘Big Deal.’ In my judgment, the school never had any feeling for the ‘old bunch’ nor did it ever reach out to the classes prior to your school being built.”
-Kenneth Weber ’53
