William Jessup University Expands
William Jessup University broke ground Tuesday on a $17-million campus expansion that will add new dining, athletic and classroom facilities to accommodate their growing number of students.
This is the second major expansion since the university relocated to Rocklin in 2004. This expansion will add a dining facility, an intercollegiate gymnasium, classrooms and music practice rooms.
The 1,018-seat gymnasium for basketball and volleyball features four team rooms and showers, five athletic staff offices, a training/therapy room with state-of-the-art hydrotherapy equipment, laundry facility, and cameras located in the upper mezzanine for video playback purposes to aid coaches and players as well.
The new facilities are expected to be completed by fall 2012.
“This is an exciting period of growth for William Jessup,” said Dr. Pat Gelsinger, chairman of the William Jessup University Board of Trustees. “The Board of Trustees is thrilled to be breaking ground on this expansion and adding new facilities to support our growth in enrollment and recognized commitment to excellence.”
Founded in 1939 and located on 128 acres in Rocklin, William Jessup University is the only WASC-accredited private four-year residential university to have its main campus located in the greater Sacramento area.
