The Jenny Craig Pavilion opened its doors in 2000 when over 2,000 faculty, staff and USD students attended the grand opening ceremony, which boasted a live band, food and tours of the venue. Jenny and Sid Craig were on hand at the inaugural event to open the Pavilion to the campus community at USD. During the dedication a lucky USD student received $10,000 tuition credit and unveiled the redesigned USD mascot.
The Jenny Craig Pavilion has been hailed the best facility in the West Coast Conference for intercollegiate basketball games in addition a cultural and an intramural center for the campus community as a whole. The ticket office is open to fans Monday-Friday 9:00am to 4:30pm and on the day of a game the office is open one hour prior to each game. Seasonal ticket plans are available.
