Changes to Campus Center Meeting Rooms: New Names Reflect Beauty of Our Region Comment from bmyers on 07/19/2007
While assuaging the "institutional" aspect of their former descriptors, I think that the new names for the campus center meeting rooms are off the mark. Most rooms elsewhere on campus that have a designation other than a basic building and room number have been named to take note of an individual who has contributed to the campus community in some significant way. These "place" names in the Campus Center seem wholly out of character with that tradition. In addition, there are three "Falls" rooms with one, Taughannock, that challenges the familiar and the unfamiliar alike as to its proper pronunciation.
