CSU Channel Islands-Camarillo CA Back in 2005, when I was in junior high school. I took history 211 in the summer at this campus. I remember that it was consider a privilege. I did not know anything about this University. I thought it was a really old school. What I found strange was the way they treated us. There was always someone watching us and telling us where to go, even when we needed to use the restroom..???... During lunch we were only allowed to play in one area. Before Cal State Channel Islands opened, the campus was built to house the Camarillo State Mental Hospital.The asylum helped people who were developmentally disabled as well as those with mental illness, schizophrenia, autism, tuberculosis, or drug or alcohol addiction.Patients were rumored to have undergone electroshock therapy as well as other abuse such as immersion in tubs of hot water followed by being wrapped in icy towels. Lobotomies were also suppose to have occurred, along with other rampant patient abuse and even negligent deaths. Patients were also often left alone in restraints, heavily drugged alone in isolation rooms. The first classes were offered in the Fall of 2002. Although a lot of the campus is now used by the university, several buildings on campus still sit unoccupied and unused, long abandoned, deteriorating, haunted. The university does not like to talk about the spirits and ghosts that may be inhabiting the campus. I heard students saying that some get suspended...Mmmm.. could that be true??? #channelislands #camarillo #hauntedplaces

Santa Cruz Island is the largest of the eight Channel Islands at 96 square miles. We hiked from Scorpion Bay to Cavern Point for the spectacular view seen here. “Today the protection and preservation of Santa Cruz Island is divided between The Nature Conservancy and the National Park Service. The Nature Conservancy owns and manages the western 76 percent of the island, while the eastern 24 percent is owned and managed by the National Park Service.” Source: https://www.nps.gov/chis/planyourvisit/santa-cruz-island.htm . . #GrandmaJoysRoadTrip #RoadScholar #ChannelIslands #SantaCruzIsland #channelislandsnationalpark #CavernPoint #findyourpark #usnationalparks #gayoutdoors #optoutside #intothewild #thegreatoutdoors #hikersofinstagram #wanderlust #hikerlife #oceanview
We were so happy for the opportunity to observe California sea lions in Ventura and along the coast of Channel Islands National Park. According to @themarinemammalcenter : “California sea lions are very social animals, and groups often rest closely packed together at favored haul-out sites on land or float together on the ocean's surface in "rafts." They are sometimes seen "porpoising," or jumping out of the water, presumably to speed up their swimming. Sea lions have also been seen "surfing" breaking waves. California sea lions are opportunistic eaters, feeding on squid, octopus, herring, rockfish, mackerel, and small sharks. In turn, sea lions are preyed upon by Orcas (killer whales) and great white sharks. Their population is growing steadily, and California sea lions can be seen in many coastal spots such as the Monterey Coast Guard jetty and PIER 39 in San Francisco. The current population is approximately 238,000. California sea lions are our most common patients at The Marine Mammal Center. In 2009, we admitted over 1700 animals. Nearly 1400 of these were California sea lions. The most common reasons California sea lions are rescued include: malnutrition, domoic acid toxicosis, leptospirosis, cancer, pneumonia, entanglement in debris or fishing gear, gunshots, and other wounds. In 2009, many of the sea lions that stranded were malnourished yearlings. Animals can become severely underweight from maternal separation, disease, lack of food sources, effects of El Niño and other environmental factors. In 1998, the Center diagnosed the first case of domoic acid toxicosis in marine mammals; a condition caused by harmful algal blooms which causes the animals to have seizures. Although the Center has conducted extensive studies to better understand this disease, hundreds of sea lions are affected annually.” More information can be found here: http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/education/marine-mammal-information/pinnipeds/california-sea-lion/ . . #GrandmaJoysRoadTrip #CaliforniaSeaLion #CaliforniaSeaLions #sealion #sealions #marinemammals #channelislands #channelislandsnationalpark Photo credit: Leah Moffatt
Sono nata per ballare in riva al mare, per lasciare che gli occhi si riempiano della bellezza infinita di posti lontani...respirare la vita...sentire forte il battito del mio cuore...sognare... "c'è sempre un giorno in più, c'è un posto dove tu decidi di ridere di quello che non va" ❤🌊🌞 #dreamer #sobeautiful #sea #jerseyisland #visitjersey #channelislands #lemievacanze #marenelcuore #freespirit #wlalibertà #lafelicità

We believe our students should be as passionate about learning as they are about passing on their wisdom to the next generation of learners. What does education mean to you? • • • • #MotivationalMonday #SteveIrwin #foodforthought #education #inspiration #CSUCI #gradschool #ChannelIslands #SchoolofEducation #Camarillo #motivation
