We’re Naming Names

By Mason Spirit contributor on October 7, 2009


Last spring, College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) Dean William Reeder announced that several departments within CVPA would become schools: the School of Music, the School of Art, and the School of Dance. The Theater Department and Film and Video Studies, Arts Management, and Computer Game Design programs would retain their current designations.

But with $500 million worth of construction projects in progress at Mason, those aren’t the only name changes on campus. Check out the chart below for updates on new building and street names.
