New Mariposa Hall Ground Breaking is April 23


Ground breaking ceremonies for a $12 million, five-story classroom building at California State University, Sacramento will be 2 p.m., April 23.

The event will be held near Eureka Hall, where the outdated Mariposa Hall has been torn down and a new building with the same name will soon stand. CSUS President Donald R. Gerth will be among those presiding.

The new Mariposa Hall will provide the first permanent quarters and specialized lab space for the program of design. It will also house the department of family and consumer sciences, the division of social work, the Dean of the College of Arts and Letters, and the department of foreign languages, which is moving out of Eureka Hall as the College of Education expands to meet the state's need for new teachers.

The building will provide classroom seating for more than 500 students and space for 88 faculty offices. There will also be 150 computer stations.

Construction is expected to be completed by the start of the fall 2000 semester.

The project is funded through a school bond approved by voters in November 1998, which is expected to provide the University with $50 million for construction. Other planned projects include a $23.2 million technology-based addition to the University Library and improvements to technology infrastructure.

More information is available from the public affairs office at 278-6156.
