2008 Beijing Organizing Committee Visits USC

The entrance to USC’s 1984 Olympic Village.

USC FACILITIES Management Services’ staff hosted nine representatives of the Beijing, China, organizing committee for the 2008 Olympic Games. The group visited USC in December to tour university facilities and to research the use of such existing facilities to create Olympic villages and athletic event venues, as well as their future upkeep and usage following the Games.

An informal presentation at the Faculty Center included the sharing of photographs and construction drawings, as well as a campus map that outlined USC’s Olympic Village.

THE VISIT concluded with a campus tour led by Maurice Hollman, associate senior vice president, and key members of the univeristy’s administrative and facilities team in 1984: Anthony Lazzaro, vice president emeritus, Gary Pitassi, director of HSC facilities management services, and Chuck O’Regan, director of operations and maintenance.
