CSU Channel Islands Summary

LED light fixture

CI has LED light fixtures that illuminate the exterior columns along Santa Cruz Village that face the South Quad, and light the signature Bell Tower. We are also testing the use of LED light fixtures in a few offices with the desire to use them in classrooms, offices and conference rooms across campus.
