Pacific Breaks Ground on Janssen-Lagorio Multipurpose Gymnasium
Dec. 8, 2008
Stockton, Calif. - University of the Pacific had a ground-breaking celebration on Saturday, Dec. 6, in honor of the Janssen-Lagorio Multi-Purpose Gymnasium. The new facility will be built near the Spanos Center.
The Janssen-Lagorio Gymnasium is a $7,000,000 multipurpose facility that will benefit the athletics, academic and recreational programs of the University. The 22,000-square foot facility, named for Regent Kathy Janssen and husband Dean, can be divided by a drop-down curtain into two identical gyms, each featuring a regulation basketball court, four basketball practice goals and two regulation volleyball courts that will provide scheduling flexibility for basketball and volleyball team practices. The new gym will also be used by campus recreation, intramural sports, classes and club sports, with camps and clinics offered to community youth during the summer.
Dean and Kathy Janssen have been great supporters of the University and Pacific Athletics and are the lead donors on the new facility. It's a facility which will add to the beauty of campus and serve the entire Pacific community.
"We are so very grateful to Dean and Kathy and all the other donors who made this facility possible," said Pacific Director of Athletics Lynn King. "Those people recognized our need and then committed their significant support to a project that will benefit every Pacific student."
