December 16, 2004

In early January, bidding will begin on the four parcels of land that are the closed El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. The successful bidder is expected to be chosen by spring 2005.

The university seeks to secure 275 acres on the closed military base to continue serving Orange County’s growing population, especially those in the southern portion.

Currently, Cal State Fullerton offers upper-division and graduate-level courses in a two-story building that once served as the headquarters of the Marines’ western region. In addition to classes, the facility houses faculty and administrative offices, a library, computer center and bookstore.

“We are very excited to see this project moving forward,” said Judith Anderson, executive vice president. “We are eager to work cooperatively with the successful bidder as we further our permanent presence in El Toro.”

When classes first began at El Toro in fall 2002, there were 2,300 students enrolled. Today, student enrollment surpasses 3,000.

“Providing a permanent presence in El Toro will allow the university to offer flexibility and accessibility to students as we look to the future,” said Ephraim Smith, vice president for academic affairs.
