Student Union to name rooms

 VSU’s Foundation Inc. is allowing individuals, alumni,  and corporate donors to name rooms within the new Student Union,  scheduled to open in January 2010.
 There are 13 rooms within the Student Union that will be reserved for naming, including the ballroom, theatre, atrium and various meeting rooms.
 Naming of rooms begins at $250,000 and are payable up to five years.
 “This opportunity will allow VSU alumni and friends the opportunity to create a bond with the future generation of students by taking advantage of several gift naming opportunities within the new Student Union,” John Crawford, Vice President for University Advancement, said.
 “The Student Union naming program is an excellent way for the university to recognize and thank donors for the significant financial contributions to the university,” Crawford said. “An individual or company will lend their name and become part of a strong tradition at VSU and leave lasting legacy of support. Each identified name is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to honor or memorialize a loved one or demonstrate an individual or a corporation.” �
 The names are a lifetime chance to honor or memorialize a loved one or demonstrate an individual or  corporation.
 VSU students think this opportunity is also a great idea.
 “I think it will be real cool to walk into the rooms next semester and know that this room is named after someone special, Densesha Urgent, sophomore early childhood education major, said. “Everyone will be like, Meet me in ‘Alumni Davis Room’ for example, it will be real cool.”
 “ I think that it is neat. Everyone will be using the rooms next year so the people who buy the rooms will be talked about every day,” Kendall Curry, sophomore, Mass Media major, said.
