Students vote in support of multi-use center

More than 55 percent of students at California State University, Sacramento have voted in support of a Recreation/Wellness/Events Center.

The referendum calls for building a 236,000 square-foot facility near Hornet Stadium. It will include a new student health center, fitness center, rock-climbing wall, swimming pool, athletic courts, six-lane bowling center, fitness classrooms, concession space, childcare center, conference center and an 8,000-seat arena for events such as commencement and intercollegiate athletics.

The referendum was on the same ballot that selected student government officers for the 2004-05 academic year.

Students will initially pay an extra $10 per semester for planning and design of the center, and $110 per semester after construction has begun. CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez has pledged the University will raise $25 million. Construction could begin as soon as 2007 and be completed by 2008.

A news conference about the results of the vote is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, April 29 in the University Union Ballroom.

Additional information about the recreation center, including conceptual drawings, is available at
