I Know the UCSF Police CAN Patrol Ashbury Street for Traffic Violations, But I Don’t Know WHY It Does SoThursday, March 12th, 2015
There are some answers here, but this activity waaaaay off-campus still seems off-mission to me:
OMG, Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism Will Soon Have a New Outpost in San Francisco? Per Dean HammThursday, November 6th, 2014
Here’s the news from the AP’s Tomoko Hosaka:
“Woah. Medill Dean Hamm says the school will soon announce new outpost in San Francisco.”
Does this man look like a liar? I think not.
Look out SFSU and UCB – you’re getting some more competition, looks like…
Boy, the UCSF Laurel Heights Campus is Nothing But a Big Fat Waste of 10 Acres – Let’s Hope This Changes SoonWednesday, June 18th, 2014
I don’t know when this UC “campus” got built, but just look at what was in fashion back in the day:
Huge empty lawns and huge empty driveways that never get used. What were they thinking? Were these lawns a “gift” to the people of San Francisco? Were they something we wanted or appreciated paying for? IDK.
I could see this place out in the country where there’s plenty of space, but I don’t know what it’s doing in SF.
Anyway, we’ll be enjoying this campus as we walk, ride, and drive by for the next half-decade, it looks like.
And then, who knows.

Lone Mountain campus, where Suzanne Somers lost her music scholarship and got kicked out of school, you know, for getting preggers, a half century ago.

“She was accepted at San Francisco College for Women (commonly referred to as “Lone Mountain College“), a now-defunct single sex school which became a campus of the Jesuit University of San Francisco. She won a music scholarship, but became pregnant after six months. She married the baby’s father, “Bruce Somers”, and her only child, Bruce Somers, was born in November 1965. She was unhappy in her marriage and began an affair with her former drama teacher. Her husband found out about it and the marriage ended after just two years, in 1967. A single mom, she turned to modeling in San Francisco to support herself and her son. She also distanced herself from her family because her older brother and sister by then were also alcoholics. In 1968, she won a job as a prize model on a game show hosted by her future husband, Alan Hamel, who was married at the time. The two began dating, and she became pregnant while Hamel was still married. They came to the conclusion that Suzanne should have an abortion, from which she suffered severe bleeding for several days. In 1970, she auditioned for Playboy’s Playmate of the Month and got as far as a test series of photos taken in the Mexican jungle. She was fully nude except for a gold chain around her waist. Playboy decided not to use her shots at the time, but paid her $3,000 for the test. After she became a star on Three’s Company (1976), Playboy published the entire series of photos and the handwritten Data Sheet that each potential Playmate fills out (in which she gives the year of her birth as 1947). At the time of its publication, she was a popular (and for her, lucrative) spokeswoman in a series of TV commercials for Ace Hardware. Following the publication of the pictures, Ace abruptly fired her, citing the contract’s morals clause. In 1971, her son Bruce was severely injured when he was hit by a car, and the therapist counseling him only charged the struggling Suzanne $1 per week. Suzanne herself also underwent therapy to overcome the problems of her dysfunctional childhood…”
