Description

Newman Auditorium has 250 seats, and is utilized constantly for classes, lectures, and performances.

Most of the space in Emeritus Hall is consumed by five departments which claim this building as home base; behavioral science, English, foreign language, philosophy-humanities, and social science. For each, classrooms, offices and meeting areas are provided.

Three specialized laboratories represent extensions of the traditional classroom – that is, the English Skills Laboratory, the Foreign Language Laboratory, and the Writing Center.

 
 
         
Name

John Crevelli (Social Sciences) originated the idea of naming this building for all retired certificated personnel, as well as for those instructors and administrators who deceased in service. Retirees must have been on staff at least 15 years to be honored by including their names on a plaque that is maintained at the entrance to Newman Auditorium.

The Auditorium is named for Randolph Newman, second President of SRJC, 1957-1970
