Fenwick Library

Land cleared as Fenwick renovations continue

Fenwick Library, one of Mason’s oldest buildings, will be nearly unrecognizable after current renovations complete. It is estimated that the project will be finalized in the winter of 2015.

Currently, the construction of Fenwick is in its initial phase, with the land having been cleared so the building of the additions can begin.

Despite the appearance that this project has resulted in the loss of green space, the team has done as much as they can to preserve the surrounding trees.

Fifteen-point action plan recommends changes to police operations

George Mason University released a 15-step plan on Oct. 4 outlining action the university plans to pursue regarding changes in Mason police force operations and ensuring the safety and well-being of those on campus. The plan is a result of recommendations and findings made this summer following the Fenwick Library incident in spring 2011 and the creation of a taskforce to examine police and community interactions and experiences.

'No impact on library operations' after minor flood

Part of Fenwick Library flooded last week due to heavy rains and a blocked drain.

“We did have some water enter the basement of Fenwick Library overnight on Thursday night,” said Dorothy Lockaby, head of University Libraries Access Services.

Lockaby cited the reason for the flooding as heavy rains that came into the area last week coupled with a blocked drain.
