A power outage struck the college on Monday, with an emergency announcement alerting staff to shut down their computers as all of the college’s power was to be shut off.
The outage only affected a portion of the city near campus.

For nearly three hours classes were interrupted due to difficulties with the city of Glendale’s
power generator.

Classrooms with windows were able to continue, but some had to be cancelled. Classes with electrical machines such as computers, pianos, and ceramics were cancelled.

Elevators have been down since Monday and technicians came in Tuesday for an inspection to ensure the safety of the many students who use the elevators.
