The Mt. San Antonio Community College (commonly called Mt. SAC) was created in December, 1945 and opened in the fall of 1946 with 635 students and was dedicated in 1948 by then local Congressman Richard M. Nixon. Today it is California’s largest single-campus community college with a combined Credit, Continuing Education, and Community Services enrollment of over 65,000 students; emerging as a leader in education in the State. In 2015 Mt. SAC proudly celebrated 69 years of educational excellence. The college will continue to offer access to quality programs and services as well as provide an environment for educational excellence throughout the 21st Century.
The Athletics Program is one of the most dominant community college athletics programs in the nation. The college has begun the process of transforming its 65-year-old stadium into a state-of-the-art and ADA compliant facility that is bidding to host the 2020 Olympic Track and Field Trials, bringing millions of dollars into the local community.
The $62 million new stadium will feature stadium seating to accommodate 11,000 spectators, which can expand to 25,000. Additionally, the 144,000 square-foot facility will include a field house with locker rooms, two weight rooms, two lecture halls, team rooms, offices, food services, restrooms, a new parking lot, and a digitally-wired press box that can accommodate the global media. The complex will be served by new 12Kv site improvements and will feature a state-of-the-art 50-foot multiple-sport scoreboard and new stadium lighting ranging from 70- to 160-ft.
Daniel’s Electric will work in conjunction with the college and Tilden-Coil Constructors, the Construction Manager for the $12 million electrical portion of the Project.
