Go UCSB! By the way, the brilliant leader of TOEC cited in this article is Daniel Blumenthal.

There are quite a few errors, misspellings, and grammatical lapses throughout this piece. But the following egregious sentence must be noted:

"Plus, construction crews broke ground on the plots that will eventually become the new Girvetz Graduate School of Education, the Carsey-Warner Center for Film, Television and New Media, and the headquarters for the College of Letters & Sciences, respectively."

That would be the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, named for the philanthropists Ambassador Don Gevirtz and Marilyn Gevirtz. I assume Vandor is confusing it with an entirely different building: Girvetz Hall, named after philosphy professor Harry Girvetz.

Though donor Marcy Carsey is linked in the minds of television fans with the name Tom Werner (not Warner), the Carsey-Wolf Center for Film, Television and New Media at UCSB was funded by Carsey and producer Dick Wolf.

In conclusion: "respectively" ?

Happy new year and go Gauchos!
