“We were really very blessed with the architects. They didn’t superimpose their idea of what the complex should be. I’ve gone into a lot of places that felt cold or just don’t function well. Ths one not only has a nice functionality to it, I feel the space has an energy to itself, and it’s kind of catching.”

— Susan Hallman, Chairman, Department of Theater and Dance, California State University-Fullerton
