CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University is considering whether to change the names of four campus buildings that some students believe are named for racists.
The Gazette-Times reported that the buildings are Avery Lodge, Benton Hall, Gill Coliseum and the Arnold Dining Center.
President Ed Ray said Wednesday that a committee will do a historical review of the buildings and their namesakes while also listening to what the community has to say.
The university has scheduled a series of six public meetings in September and October.
Ray said he will announce a decision on the name changes Nov. 27 – right after Thanksgiving weekend.
