East LA College - Test

East Los Angeles College has been serving the Monterey Park and East Los Angeles communities since 1945 and has the unique distinction of having the largest student population of all nine LACCD colleges.  ELAC has undergone a remarkable renaissance on its main campus and is in the planning stages to open a new satellite campus in the nearby City of Southgate. Thanks to the voters of Los Angeles and their passage of Propositions A, AA and Measure J, the ELAC campus continues its transformation into a 21st Century state-of-the-art educational institution. Openings to date include the 160,000 square foot LEED™ Gold Performing Fine Arts Complex consisting of the Vincent Price Museum, the Recital Hall and the Theatre Building, the 58,000 SF LEED™ Silver Student Services Building, the 40,000 SF Admin Building, the 100,000 SF Technology Center, the 45,000 SF LEED™ Certified Social &Behavioral Sciences Building, 95,000 SF LEED™ Certified Phase 1 Science Career & Mathematics Building, the 39,380 SF LEED™ Gold Campus Student Center Bookstore, the 138,575 SF LEED™ Gold Ernest H. Moreno-Language Arts & Humanities building, the 1445 & 1881 stall - multiple story Parking Structures, 1.8 Megawatts of Photovoltaic Arrays, a new Central Plant, a new campus-wide utility infrastructure system, a modernized Plant Facilities Complex, and athletic facilities improvement projects including ELAC stadium modernization and new Men's Baseball and Women's Softball Field complexes.

ELAC’s focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement) is evident in the 120,000 SF Science Career & Mathematics Complex (SCMC). Finishing the SCMC will complete the new campus quad which also includes the Campus Student Center Bookstore and the recently commissioned Ernest H. Moreno Language Arts and Humanities building - the State of California’s largest classroom building.
