SF STATE NEWS -- Held in the Creative Arts building’s McKenna Theatre, the Convocation (known in previous years as the Open Faculty Meeting) is San Francisco State’s official faculty and staff kickoff for the academic year. In his Convocation address, SF State President Leslie E. Wong shared new details of the construction projects getting underway this fall: a mid-rise mixed-use student housing development and a new academic building for the College of Liberal and Creative Arts (LCA).

The new student housing will be located on Holloway Avenue between Cardenas and Varelas avenues and will house more than 560 students. The LCA building will contain classrooms and state-of-art radio, TV and media production centers for students in the Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts Department. The University’s first new academic building in nearly 25 years, the new LCA building will be located on Tapia Drive at the intersection of Font Boulevard and Holloway Avenue.
