Watch a time-lapse video of construction of the University's new three-story academic building, Leprino Hall.
Phase One of the Lakewood Campus Redevelopment included the acquisition of 12 properties, significant infrastructure
improvements and the construction of Leprino Hall, which expanded our campus to 34 acres. The main Alameda Ave. entrance was widened and enhanced, and it now provides a clearly defined internal drive on the campus to reach campus facilities.
The focal point of Phase One was Leprino Hall, an approximately 43,000 square foot academic building which houses:
The completion of Phase One would not have been possible without the generous
support of over 700 friends, parents, and alumni. Phase One was completed with a total
cost of $30 million; $17.1 million, of the total $30 million cost,
came from charitable giving. Phase One has been completed
on budget and with no debt.
The construction of Leprino Hall is a significant milestone in
our complete campus redevelopment project. Our deepest
thanks to all who gave freely and joyfully. Gifts to our Campus
Development Fund will impact lives for many generations to
come. The generosity of our friends, parents, and alumni has
helped to build a foundation for the next 100 years.
