College History

History

Yuba College was first conceived in 1911 by Marysville High School Principal, J.C. Ray. Marysville Junior college, one of the first junior colleges in California, opened its doors to 67 students. It was located in Marysville High School at Seventh and G streets and operated under the guidance of the Marysville High School Superintendent, Curtis E. Warren. Overcrowding soon became a problem, with classes being held in stairwells and hallways. In 1928 the college moved to 18th and B Street, the site of the current Marysville High School. That year citizens formed the Yuba County Community College District � the first such district in California. By 1937 a separate facility for Yuba College was built across the street from the high school on 18 acres of land at a cost of $60,000. The school contained six classrooms, an auditorium, a few offices, and served an enrollment of 354 students. That same year, Yuba College formed its own bus transportation system for students living in the outlying areas, another first in California. The new buses carried students from Oroville, Gridley, Yuba City, Colusa, Live Oak, Wheatland, and south Sutter County. The college moved to its present location in Linda, on October 1, 1962. Thirteen buildings were constructed on a 160-acre site. In 1963, a 60-student dormitory for men was built and in 1965 a women's residence hall was added.A third dormitory was built in 1966. Yuba College has undertaken a carefully planned approach in building and modernization of its facilities to provide students with a quality education. Over $8 million was invested in building two new facilities. The Adaptive Physical Education building at Yuba College is a state-of-the art multi-use building, providing specialized instruction to mobility-limited students and students desiring modulated physical education classes. In 2006 voter passed Measure J, a $190 million facilities bond. With the passage of Measure J Yuba College received $88.8 million to renovate and upgrade existing facilities and build new ones. Included in the Measure J projects is the Athletic Complex, renovated theater project, the new Health and Public Safety building,the Sutter County Center,and the remodeled Library (scheduled for completion in 2014).
