For our second day of campus observation, we met at the corner of Tate St. and Walker Ave.

Question(s) of the Day:

Who was the Brown Building named after?

The Brown Building, which housed the School of Music until 1999, is named after Wade R. Brown, Head/Dean of the School of Music from 1912 to 1936.

Why were there 3 major time periods of growth at UNCG?

I used the above link to gather my information about the history of UNCG.

1920s: Rapid expansion occured during the 1920s, with the student population skyrocketing. With the huge growth in population, more buildings were needed.
1960s: UNCG became a coed school in 1964, which led to another massive growth in population, therefore requiring more buildings to house and educate the students.
1990-present: UNCG has yet again experienced exponential growth in population, so more buildings are being added and remodeled to accomodate all of the students. I have heard my R.A. say that we are at 106% capacity, so we are overflowing with students.

Why has the Music Building not been named yet?
As an educated guess, I'm assuming that the Music Building hasn't been named yet because no one of influence from the Music Department has passed away recently.
