Science Complex

The wait is nearly over. After years of hoping, wishing and planning, the long-anticipated "Science II" building is one step closer to becoming reality. The CSU Board of Trustees approved the project at its November meeting and the CSU system will provide $71 million in funding.

Sac State is seeking private support for the remaining $20 million for the facility which will include state-of-the-art teaching labs, interactive study spaces, a planetarium and the potential for naming rights.

Power of 1,000

The buzz is building for a new Event Center at Sac State. Supporters have raised more than $975,000 for the new facility through The Power of 1,000 Hornets crowdfunding campaign.

The fundraising effort, which aims to raise $1 million in seed money for the center with pledges from Hornet friends and fans, gained early momentum with a $750,000 gift commitment from philanthropist Ernest Tschannen. Since then, interest in the much-needed facility continues to attract backers. As incentive, the first 1,000 benefactors to complete a $1,140 pledge will be recognized with signage in the new building.
