The Bartholomew Performing Arts Center was the most significant campus improvement in the Beyond 125 Campaign with a goal of $3.5 million. Construction of the building was completed fall 2015, with the performing arts program taking occupancy in Spring 2016. The new facility includes a multi-form (black box) theater, choral rehearsal space, practice rooms, foyer and more. Friends, patrons, businesses and alumni have provided this new facility paid-in-full with no debt or burden for current or future students. There were 560 individual donations ranging in size from $1 to $2,000,000 that made this possible. Gifts included a major contribution that endows building operations making the facility a true gift to every York College student. Thank you to every donor for making this dream come true.
