Petition to keep "The Smaug"

This petition had 247 supporters

WSU's The Smaug, the basement cafeteria in Krysko Commons, underwent a serious facelift this summer. The new space looks incredible! However, with this change the university has also decided to change the name from The Smaug to Zane's, in honor of the late Charlie Zane, a well-respected employee of WSU for many years. It is understood that the name "The Smaug" lingers from a time that smoking was allowed in Krysko, and that Mr. Zane and his legacy fully deserve this honor. With that being said,

We the undersigned request that The Smaug will continue to be named as such. The name has a nostalgic, unique quality to it and many of us would never be able to think of it with any other name. The memories we have of the Smaug are fond, including the name itself. 

In addition, to recognize and affirm Mr. Zane's contribution to WSU, we request that possibly another building/room/area on campus be named after him. He was a wonderful individual who played an incredible role in making our campus what it is today, and deserves to be recognized for such. 

Please email with any questions, comments, or concerns.
