Memorial Grove Dedication Ceremony

FSU Dedicates Memorial Grove

Members of the FSU community gathered on Thursday, Nov. 12th, to dedicate a new space to the memories of students, faculty and staff who are no longer with us.

Memorial Grove, located across the street from Larned Hall, is a space for the community to come together in times of tragedy. It features a sun dial, four granite benches, two maple trees and a brick pathway. The ashes of Asako Mazawa, an international student from Japan who died in a 1997 motorcycle crash, were also reinterred on the site.

A detailed story on the ceremony that ran in the MetroWest Daily News can be found here.
