I cannot tell you how students feel about Gasson, as they have not divulged that information to me, but I can tell you a bit about Gasson and you can perhaps infer its meaning. Gasson was the first building built on this campus, in 1913. It houses many classrooms and department offices and a few very special places as well. One is room 305, the Fulton room (actually an amphitheater) and home to the Fulton Debating Society, with a Gothic arch ceiling adorned with a variety of oratorical quotes. Painted on the walls is the list of all Fulton debate winners, from 1890. Another notable place is the big function room on the first floor: Gasson 100 (aka “the Irish room”) was originally used as an assembly and lecture hall and now hosts everything from concerts to parties to Irish dancing. Just outside this room is the rotunda, with a very large and impressive white marble statue of the Archangel Michael overcoming Lucifer. And, finally, let’s not forget the Gasson Tower and its four bells that chime the passing day. I can hear them here and they certainly remain in my memory!
