Student government leaders at California State University, Fresno announced today that student voters approved the Legacy 2000 referendum, paving the way for construction of a new on-campus recreational center in the Save Mart Center.
In one of the largest student election turnouts in university history - 1,934 ballots cast - students passed the referendum with 1,389 yes votes to 545 no votes. The League of Women Voters conducted the two-day election held Nov. 15 and 16 and also tallied the ballots for the Associated Students, Inc.
Arakel Arisian, ASI president, said he was pleased to see that "students had voted overwhelmingly for this referendum."
"This project, along with The Save Mart Center, will transform this campus," he said. "The turnout was tremendous. Students are not apathetic and showed they cared about this campus and the community."
The new center is slated to open in 2002.
