The campus is situated immediately west of a crest that overlooks the San Andreas fault — the uppermost parking lot provides a good view of the fault. Architecturally, the campus dates from the late 1960s. It was built of pre-formed concrete slabs bolted together with steel in anticipation of a great earthquake.

On September 2, 2009, there was a shooting on campus. At least one was shot.[1] Following the shooting a message was posted on the school's website, and a text message was sent to the student body notifying them of the situation.
