The University enjoys an ideal location in the heart of California’s Central Valley, a short distance from the governmental hub of Sacramento, the Sierra Nevada mountains, the San Francisco Bay Area, Monterey, and Big Sur. n the early to mid-twentieth century, Big Sur’s relative isolation and natural beauty began to attract writers and artists, including Robinson Jeffers, Henry Miller, Edward Weston, Richard Brautigan, Hunter S. Thompson, Emile Norman, and Jack Kerouac. The area’s increasing popularity and cinematic beauty soon brought the attention of Hollywood. Orson Welles and his wife at the time, Rita Hayworth, bought a Big Sur cabin on impulse during a trip down the coast in 1944. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton starred in the 1965 film The Sandpiper, featuring many location shots of Big Sur… Another film based in Big Sur was the 1974 Zandy’s Bride, starring Gene Hackman and Liv Ullman. In music, Joan Baez resided in Big Sur during the early 1960s; from 1964 – 1971, the Big Sur Folk Festival was held annually, on the grounds of the Esalen Institute, with Baez, Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Mimi Farina frequently performing.
Stanislaus County is a county located in the Central Valley. As the price of housing has increased in the San Francisco Bay Area, many people who work in the southern reaches of the Bay Area have opted for the longer commute and moved to Stanislaus County for the relatively affordable housing. The county is named for the Stanislaus River, first discovered by a European, Gabriel Moraga, in 1806, and later renamed Rio Estanislao in honor of Estanislao, a mission-educated renegade Native American chief who led a band of Indians in a series of battles against Mexican troops until finally being defeated by General Mariano Vallejo in 1826. Estanislao was his baptismal name, the Spanish rendition of Stanislaus, itself the Latin rendition of the name of an 11th century Catholic Saint Stanislaus the Martyr. Agriculture is Stanislaus County’s number two industry, with wine grapes being the primary agricultural product.
