California State University East Bay says goodbye to Warren Hall.
At 9:00am on August 17, 2013, the CSU East Bay campus administration building came down with the help of 430 lbs of explosives to an audience of hundreds including students, faculty, staff, and neighbors. Back in 2005, the CSU Seismic Review Board rated the building the most seismically deficient within the entire CSU system which includes 23 campuses. In January, the CSU Board of Trustees authorized $50 million to demolish Warren Hall and replace it with a new structure. Separately, scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey were also on hand for a quake study.
