Event Celebrating New NC Campus Center
Cuesta College is celebrating its new Measure L-funded North County Campus Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 21 and is encouraging the community, faculty, staff, and students to take part. This is the first Measure-L funded facility to open on Cuesta College’s North County Campus.
The District will host the ceremony from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the building and enjoy refreshments outside. Complimentary parking will be available campus-wide. Those planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP to the Cuesta College Foundation Office by June 15 by calling (805) 546-3279 or by registering online.
“The new North County Campus Center will serve as the front door to our Paso Robles campus, providing a welcoming, one-stop-shop for everything students need to be successful as they pursue higher education at Cuesta College,” said Cuesta College Superintendent/President Dr. Gil Stork. “This ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrates a major enhancement to the North County Campus, but it also represents the culmination of several years of planning and hard work and our promise to the residents of San Luis Obispo County that their local Measure L tax dollars are improving their community college.”
The 43,000-square foot, two-story structure houses a variety of student services, including counseling, admissions and records, and financial aid. Many other programs also reside in this multi-function building, such as the cafeteria, bookstore, student life and leadership, the health center, and campus safety. The Campus Center was built to house these various programs that were displaced due to the removal of modular structures. Construction began in Spring of 2016; the project cost approximately $31.8M.
Passed in November of 2014 by the voters of San Luis Obispo County, Measure L is a general obligation bond in the amount of $275M. In the Spring of 2018, the San Luis Obispo Campus Instructional Building opened, the first bond-funded building to be completed. Current bond projects include upgrades to the San Luis Obispo Campus Aquatic Center, a new San Luis Obispo Campus Data Center, and construction of a permanent structure to house the North County Campus’s Early Childhood Education Center.
