Research I on the Fairfax Campus was the setting of a President’s Circle member reception in October. The facility, which officially opened in January 2007, is Mason’s first building dedicated to research. During the evening, students and faculty shared a sampling of current research projects with donors and conducted tours of the observatory atop the building.
The President’s Circle is the university’s most prestigious annual giving society for donors who make gifts totaling $1,000 or more. Membership is based on gifts received during the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
