Update 10:20am: Sigma Phi alumnus got it. This is the front of 2336 Piedmont Avenue, which, according to the photographer Sandy Friedland, is called Casa, and is a multi-ethnic residential program for Cal students. The building was designed by Julia Morgan and built in 1915. Congratulations on being this week’s winner!

  1. Hello, I’m writing about my 2 years at UCB (1968-1970) and that first year I lived at 2336 Piedmont Avenue. It was a home used for student housing. My roommate and I had a huge room with a fireplace and private bathroom on the ground floor. I don’t recall if there were kitchen facilities in the house that we could use. But in those days, who ate proper meals? It was right next to the Kappa Kappa Gamma House. It was quite a “find” for housing at the time. I have no idea, however, if it was used as a sorority or fraternity prior to this date or after.

  2. Greenline Institute apparently runs Casa. The house was built as a private residence, but I couldn’t find out if it was ever a sorority or fraternity house.

  4. No such tiles or brick like these at the Thorsen House. However there is a house just up the street on the other side where these tiles can be found: the Greenlining Institute at 2336 Piedmont Avenue.

  5. I have never seen it, but I will take a wild guess and say it is at the Rosa Parks School, formerly known as the Columbus School.
