Thanks to bond measures passed by voters over the years, the Los Rios Community College District completed a number of projects to enhance facilities. For Sacramento City College, that means bringing buildings originally completed with Works Progress Administration funds during the 1930’s into the 21st century. It also means a brand new center, the first of its kind in California, on the UC Davis campus. SCC is proud, and grateful, to have the resources to offer the state-of-the art teaching and learning facilities that students deserve.
With these innovations come exciting opportunities for our community. SCC is offering the chance to put your name, or the name of a loved one, on a newly remodeled Performing Arts Center, the newly constructed Davis Center, even the stadium. Classrooms, conference areas, seating and a variety of other naming choices are available if you want to make a visible gift to the college. More information is available from the SCC Foundation at 916-558-2197.
SCC’s Davis Center
The first community college extension built on a University of California campus, the SCC Davis Center opened its doors to more than 2,000 students in spring 2012 with 11 classrooms, a computer lab, art studio, career technology center, administrative offices and counseling space. More than 220 students transfer from SCC to UC Davis each year, making SCC the institution transferring the most students to UC Davis. Construction of the $12.4 million center is funded by the LRCCD with measure A bond proceeds approved by voters in 2002
Performing Arts Center
Built with Works Progress Administration funds in 1937, the SCC Auditorium served the college through years of change. Now, a transformation has updated this Art Deco icon. The 600-seat space has an audio system control, lighting catwalks and control systems, motorized/manual rigging system, motorized orchestra pit, trap floor, variable acoustics and full accessibility. The new technology links all “smart” classrooms–instructor stations equipped with computer and audiovisual equipment– labs and support spaces for interactive network capability. The entryway to the Auditorium retains the fresco by artist Ralph Stackpole, depicting teaching and learning, valley farming and local government.
Seats, classrooms, even the stage is available for your visible support to the college.
The stadium at Sacramento Junior College opened in 1928 with a seating capacity of 25,000. It was the largest stadium in the country affiliated with a junior college. Home to SCC’s football and track teams, the stadium hosted top name bands, the annual charity Pig Bowl and the pre-Olympic USA/Mobil Track and Field championships of 1995.
Now, the stadium is upgraded with new bleachers, an ADA retrofit to include an elevator on sides of the stadium, renovation of locker rooms, a new press box—the list goes on for this dynamic renewal of a Sacramento gem. Naming opportunities are as diverse as they are numerous, for individuals and for businesses.
