The decade of crisis also forced a revised appraoch to campus development. The expansions imagined in the 1960s were no longer realistic and the vision of an experimental approach to UC education was reconsidered.
A Revised Plan
"[The Utilities and Site Development] project has changed significantly since it was approved February 12, 1973. The general description at that time outlined growth through College No. 12 and called for the extension of a major campus road.
This revision will redefine the project in terms of the current campus growth plans....With reduced enrollment projection, expansion to the north has been deferred indefinitely.... The pedestrian/bike path between Oakes and core has been deferred."

Wilderness as Lonely
"UCSC is a lonely place. The redwoods separate us from each other: the institution humbles us with its complexity: the isolation of the campus carries with it a sense of unreality."
