The SAAS Rising Campaign Reaches $24.4 Million: While the finishing touches on STREAM Building were completed the SAAS Rising campaign continued to see generous support from our community and steady progress toward our $35 million goal!

Construction update: In late June, we said goodbye to the team of GLY Construction project managers who were pivotal in seeing that the construction of the STREAM Building was completed on time and on budget. We are grateful for their leadership and their relationship with us this past year.

From June 2014 to June 2015 a lot was accomplished on the corner of 13th Ave E and E Spring Street! Watch the construction time-lapse video here.


Moving In! With keys to the new STREAM Building in hand, furniture for the Learning Commons and Lab Classrooms was delivered earlier this month. Next month Science Faculty will return to campus and eagerly begin classroom set-up and preparations as we are looking forward to filling the building with students in September!
