Stan and Ellen Weisser ’68 are longtime supporters of Cal State San Bernardino whose generous and invaluable gift was the seed donation for the new Performing Arts Center. Their gift led the university to name the center’s foyer the Ellen and Stan Weisser Performing Arts Foyer.
CSUSB broke ground on a new 73,337 square-foot Performing Arts Center on Sept. 7. The center will provide modern teaching, rehearsal and performance spaces necessary for a modern performing arts program and is scheduled to open during the 2024-25 academic year. At completion, the new 500-seat performing arts theater will be the only one of its size and quality in the Inland Empire, and will allow more of the area’s community to experience the highly acclaimed productions from CSUSB student-performers and student-musicians. The building will also create a new “front door” to the campus that shows a modern and forward-looking face to visitors and the larger community.
