Renamed in 2008 with the support of a generous $5 million donation by Joseph A.W. Claeys III, California State University Fullerton is now the home of a world-class performance space and learning center. The 250-seat James D. Young Theatre provides an area for student dramatic productions and the 800-seat Vaughncille Joseph Meng Concert Hall present guest artists as well as performances by the university's music ensemble, and the Hallberg Theatre offers a traditional black box performance space with theater in the round seating.
