Lawrence A. Bertolini Student Services Center Opens Jan 11
The beautiful Lawrence A. Bertolini Student Services Center officially opened on Monday, January 11, 2010. Although the
construction fence has been removed, there’s still some final work that will continued to be completed over many weeks,
including furniture moved and offices set up.
The center is a world class facility inspired by a simple vision, ‘It’s all about
the students.” Designed to efficiently support students’ many needs, Bertolini
completes a circle of neighboring facilities that focus on centralized student
services, including: the gateway “first step” services in Plover Hall; state-of-
the-art learning resources in the Doyle Library; and the Bookstore in historic
Pioneer Hall.
Some special features on Bertolini’s First Floor include the dining commons
(permanent tables/chairs have not arrived yet); designated faculty/staff
dining room near the north entrance here Fresh and Natural will soon
announce special services ifor faculty/staff area; Student Affairs east wing
with expanded space for student leadership clubs; the CyBear Center; media
enhanced Senate Room for faculty, student, and classified governance
activities. The Second/Third Floors will include conference rooms, classrooms
(by March 1); kinetic sculpture (by artist Ned Kahn shown below) in the atrium; and much more.
                                  While this is an extremely exciting time for everyone on campus, be aware that the staff is
                                  in a move-in transition mode for the next five weeks, so visiting the center at this point is
                                  discouraged. A tentative sequence of move-in dates for each program is outlined below:

AG TruST: Shone Farm Winery Announces First release
The Shone Farm Winery became a bonded facility under federal law in September 2008. Located in the Warren G. Dutton
Agricultural Pavilion at SRJC’s Shone Farm, the winery issued its first vintage release this fall, a 2008 Chardonnay from the
renowned Russian River Valley.
This initial release of only 24 cases is just the beginning, according to Manager Agriculture Pavilion, Shone Farm Chris Wills.
“In the future we plan to expand operations to include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel varietal offerings. Our
Chardonnay had to pass a review by a tasting panel comprised of local industry representatives. We are considering a suggested
retail price of $28.00 per bottle.”
Hand crafted in small lots by students enrolled in the SRJC Wine Studies Program, this first release uses the best premium grapes
harvested at Shone Farm. The final cuvee will be bottled and distributed displaying the new Shone Farm label designed by a
SRJC student in the Applied Graphics Department. The Wine Studies Program at SRJC has 700 students, the largest program in
the Agriculture Department.
The first release of Shone Farm Chardonnay is available at both Traverso’s and Willie’s Markets. In addition, a distribution plan for
Shone Farm wine is under consideration by other local retailers, including TeeJay Markets, Pacific Market, and Oliver’s. A release
party is also being planned in spring 2010. For more information, contact Chris Wills, at 887-8220 or inquire at: cwills@santarosa.
