MAAS Update

Cypress College broke ground on the New Veterans’ Resource Center (VRC) and the Student Activities Center (SAC) Expansion on January 8th, 2019. With 14,646 GSF, and $9.8M in combined construction cost, the expanded SAC will include a study lounge, a social lounge, as well as spaces of the International Student Program (ISP) and the Associated Student Government (ASG). Comprised of three counselor office spaces, a study room, a computer lab, a meeting room, and two large gathering spaces, the New VRC will serve not only Defense Forces veterans at Cypress College but also the community at large.

This project is being funded by NOCCCD’s Bond Measure J, a $574 million ballot measure passed by North County residents. MAAS is proud to work alongside NOCCCD on the Program Management of this bond measure.
