What's going up along the American River? Here's what Sac State's new science complex looks like so far
Sacramento State University released a drone video showing the progress this week on construction of a new $90.5 million science complex on campus.
The 96,631-square-foot building, grounds, planetarium and observatory, expected to open for classes by fall 2019, will be known as the Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex. Tschannen’s $9 million gift to the university, the largest ever, was made public on February 16, 2018 – his 93rd birthday.
"Ernest believes in Sac State," CSUS president Robert S. Nelsen said at the time. "He believes in our students. He believes that we can make this nation stronger."
Construction, as the video shows, is taking place on campus near the American River, next to the Hornet Bookstore and south of the Guy West Bridge.
