CSUDH cuts ribbons on 4 major campus renovation projects
Consider Cal State Dominguez Hills transformed.
And on Friday, Oct. 15, university officials celebrated that transformation by cutting the ribbon on four new campus facilities.
Much of the Cal State Dominguez Hills campus, near Carson, spent the past four years undergoing renovations, remodels and other quality-of-life improvements – a lot of which occurred throughout the height of the coronavirus pandemic. But now most of the construction is wrapped up, so university officials gathered Friday with local, education and state leaders for a grand opening ceremony and simultaneous ribbon cuttings for the four new facilities.
Three of the newly upgraded buildings were major capital projects for the university that totaled more than $200 million and made history as the the biggest campus expansion in more than a decade.
“This is a tremendous achievement not only for our campus, but for the community we serve,” said CSUDH President Thomas Parham. “We will no longer be looked at as just ‘that’ university, but as a university that uplifts its community and stands as a shining beacon of education and success.”
And, Parham said, this would not have been possible without “the blueprint laid out by my predecessor,” former President Willie Hagan.
