Sacramento Students Move FAQ

DEVELOP SACRAMENTOON THE MOVE UPDATES

When will my first class be held there?

On or after March 31.  Beginning that day, all Sacramento Campus classes will be held at the new location.  Prior to March 31, all classes will be held at Arcade Church.  The address is 290 Technology Way, Suite 200  Rocklin, CA 95765.

We have hesitated sending too many updates so students would not get lost in the up and down.  Please understand we want to communicate concrete information instead of numerous tentative dates.  We realize the ambiguity was testing your patience; please understand it was testing ours as well!  Thank you for the grace you've granted the staff during this time.

Will I still be able to use the library in the midst of the move?

Yes and no.  There will be a week period of transition from the old to the new library, March 17-21.  

In anticipation of this closure, please spend some time thinking through your assignments and timelines, and come see us early to check out whatever books you need.    The library will continue to be available to you 10 to 8 on Mondays, 10 to 6pm Tuesday thru Friday, and 10 to 2 on Saturday, March 1, 8, and 15.

Please continue to return library books during this time to Western's office at Arcade (use the drop slot in the door if the office is closed) or to the book return slots in the classroom building's mailboxes.  We know some Arcade books will be returned to our new campus and some Western books will be returned to Arcade.  Don't worry; we will transport them to the proper location. 

Will there be a Grand Opening?

Yes, but not before May.  We want to move everything and get settled before inviting the community.  We will let you know exactly when. 

When will the office be moving?

Between March 17 and 21.  Some staff will be working out of the new location as soon as next week.

Planning and executing a move in addition to all else that needs to be done is demanding, to say the least.  Thank you for understanding the nature of our Sacramento staff's impact on this move.  If you are concerned about immeditate Registrar, Financial or other Academic concerns, please feel free to call our Portland colleagues at (503) 517-1800.  If you search this website you may find your answer without even connecting with someone!  

Why not just wait until the end of the Spring term?

There are a number of reasons.  Holy week is arguably the busiest time of the year for those in church ministry.  For us to move during that time limits not only our staff's capability, but volunteers.  Moving from one church setting to another is also challenging for each church and their preparations.  

Will more work need to be done in the new facility?

Much more will need to be done.  Time and money impact everything in life.  It seems to be more noticeable in times of transition.  Among the improvements that will be made post-move include: 

  • Additional receptacles for power in classrooms and library
  • Decor in hallways, classrooms and library
  • More technology in classrooms, particularly Classroom B, which is being designed as a webstream-ready room.

Will there be faster wireless in the new facility?

Yes.  

Will there be enough places to plug in my devices?

Yes.   However, it may take a few months to upgrade to the optimum number. Power and internet speed are the two most requested items by students over the past 3-4 years in Sacramento. We will continue to develop to your demand.

Will the new campus still be referred to as the Sacramento Campus?

Yes.

How do I get there?
