Multipurpose Gymnasium for Athletics and Recreation

The Janssen/Lagorio Family Foundation gave Pacific a $1 million gift to jumpstart the construction of a new multipurpose gymnasium/practice facility on the Stockton campus. Kathleen (Lagorio) Janssen is a trustee of the Foundation, a 1968 graduate of the Benerd School of Education, and a member of the Board of Regents. She and her husband, Dean Janssen, are both long-time supporters of Pacific Athletics. The facility is estimated to cost $5 million.

The gift comes at a time when the University needs larger and more modern sport facilities. Existing facilities like the Main Gym and South Campus Gym were built in the 1940s and are showing signs of age. The new gymnasium will be used for Division I intercollegiate athletics, student recreation, intramurals, and the Sports Sciences curriculum.

Summer camps and youth leagues will be able to use the facilities when not used by the University, and the ability to host college tournaments and playoffs is expected to bring economic benefits to local business.
