A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
California State University, Fullerton main campus consists of 240.6 acres and is bordered on the east by the Orange Freeway (Route 57), located in Fullerton in north Orange County, about 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles and about 21 miles from nearby beaches. Founded in 1957 by act of the California Legislature, the campus consists of 29 permanent buildings or building clusters, with 13 residence halls which house 1,887 students.

The Fullerton Arboretum, a 26-acre preserve developed in cooperation with the city of Fullerton, is located at the northeast corner of campus and is open to the public. The Arboretum hosts a visitor and conference center, including a museum devoted to the agricultural history of Orange County and the contributions of Japanese-Americans.

Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school No No
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs or clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) No No
Museum No No
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
Several sites are excluded from the institutional boundary due to their distance from the main campus.

Satellite locations include the Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana, the Garden Grove Center in Garden Grove, and Zzyzx Desert Studies Center. The Desert Studies Center is located at Soda Springs (a.k.a. “Zzyzx”), on the western shore of Soda Dry Lake, and in the northwest corner of the Mojave National Preserve. It is accessed via Interstate 15, the main highway between the Los Angeles area of Southern California, and Las Vegas, Nevada. In its location, it serves as a convenient departure point for groups visiting the Death Valley National Park, the Kelso Dunes, the Afton Canyon riparian areas, the Cima Dome and Volcanic area, the historic Mojave Road, the Early Man Site at Calico, the Providence, New York, Granite, and Clark mountains, and many other interesting features and localities in the East Mojave Desert.
