Los Medanos College has developed immensely since its creation in 1974 to further serve the growing community of Contra Costa County. With over nine thousand students attending, the college has looked to expand and make strides toward completing its master plan for a better and more connected campus community. The most prominent element of the 2007 master plan was the need for a student “living room” – the Student Union. The Student Union includes spaces for student life, student government, the bookstore, clubs, food service, meeting spaces, learning communities, event spaces, and outdoor dining and gathering. In addition, the college wanted to create better opportunities for student health and wellness, expand course offerings, and attract student athletes with the new Kinesiology Complex.
