All are invited to join the Libraries on Wednesday, May 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. for a program celebrating our latest exhibition and the university’s 50th anniversary. The event will take place in Fenwick Library, Room 2001, and will feature a presentation, reception, and time to tour the exhibition. RSVPs are welcome.
“We are Mason: A Student History” is curated by the Special Collections Research Center. The exhibition, which opened in April, will run through December 2022. “We are Mason” illustrates Mason’s first fifty years as an independent university, with a focus on Mason’s students. You can read more about the exhibition at the following:
“We are Mason” illustrates Mason’s first fifty years as an independent university (officially recognized on April 7, 1972) as well as the fifteen years prior that mark its development from a fledgling branch college (that first opened in 1957). The exhibition focuses on Mason’s students, who have always been the main reason our institution exists and carries on into the future.
Images in the exhibit illustrate student life throughout the years as well as the growth of university traditions, expansion of the campus, and important milestones in our institution’s history. The images and physical objects in the exhibition date from 1957 to 2022.
Visitors are welcome to view “We are Mason” in SCRC’s exhibition space on the second floor of Fenwick Library, during our open hours (see Hours for more information). The Libraries will host a special exhibition reception later this spring.
