We are informed that the college is open again as of 6/4/2020
From West L.A. College President James M. Limbaugh:
Late yesterday afternoon, under the advice of the County Sheriff, all nine Los Angeles Community College District institutions–including West–were instructed to go into complete closedown due to continuing civil unrest. For the campus, this means that all perimeters are secured. Our essential employees will not be allowed on campus; contractors, as separate entities, have worked out arrangements with the Sheriff so that our construction projects can continue.
As a result, our neighbors will not be able to enjoy their walks around the campus until, at the latest, Thursday morning. We will analyze the situation on a daily basis, and if ongoing consultations with the Sheriff allow an earlier re-opening, I will let you know.
I would appreciate your informing the folks in the surrounding neighborhoods about this situation through your established communication channels, as I don’t have an adequate email list.
Thanks for understanding, and please express my apologies to any one who showed up this morning and were turned away.
We will get through this…
Best, Jim Limbaugh James M. Limbaugh, Ph.D.President West Los Angeles College (310) 287-4325

From City Manager John Nachbar’s Dec. 7th, 2012 bi-weekly email:
Cranks/Tellefson Hillside Slide Repair Project Reimbursement – In late November, the City received a payment of $425,000 from the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal-EMA) for the Cranks/Tellefson hillside slide repair project. Additional money is expected from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), with the total of both sources expected to be approximately $1.6 million. Combined with payments that the City has already received, this brings the total assistance received by Culver City for the 2005 disaster to over $2.5 million.
West Los Angeles College (WLAC) Demolition Bash- WLAC has informed the City that it will begin demolition of 43-year-old “temporary” buildings during the Winter break as part of its on-going campus transformation funded by voter- approved construction bonds. To mark the occasion, WLAC is planning to hold a Demolition Bash at 2:30 pm on Tuesday, December 11th. All are invited to participate in the farewell photo. Be sure to wear your favorite 1970’s and/or construction worker apparel. Get your photo taken swinging a ceremonial sledge hammer then graffiti your thank you message to these well-used buildings on one of the walls. Following the event, guests are invited to explore the dramatically renewed campus with three new LEED certified, multi-story buildings and lovely new walkways and courtyards. The new Café West is open for lunch and the adjacent expansive lawn behind the Student Services Building offers a great view of Culver City. Parking will be free in Lot #5, which is located off of Freshman Drive.
