Did you know...

In the 1985-1986 school year many of the building and roads on campus were renamed?

Among several other shifts occurring at Sait in the mid-1980's, during the 1985-1986 school year the Sait campus was undergoing an extensive rejuvenation project. Alongside the opening of the newly constructed Colonel James Walker Building in 1986, many of the buildings and roadways at the main and satellite campuses were renamed in honor of individuals who had contributed to either the history of the institute or that of the city and province. Utilitarian names such as East Block and South Complex were replaced by titles such as the John Ware Building or Senator Burns Building, providing students with not only more recognizable names, but a stronger connection to the history of both the province and the institute. Similar to the buildings on campus, roadway names such as Fowler Drive and Boyce Crescent were established in recognition of the impact that Sait's past leaders have had on the institute. With the recent announcement of the renaming of the Heart Building as the Stan Grad Building, and the Sait Library to the Reg Erhardt Library, this trend continues to shape the face of campus even now.
To find out more about these and many other changes that have occured throughout the history of Sait, please contact the Sait Archives or view our online collections.
