Like a town or city, the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) covering an area of approximately 920 square metres is comprised of many roads and streets. Within the scope of the new Street Name Project the 2017-2018 Academic Year started with the naming of these streets. In the past, directional signs have been inadequate for those coming to EMU. For this reason the new project conforming to EMU’s educational philosophy, mission and vision was brought to life in order to provide convenience for both new and existing students.
The project that was masterminded by EMU Faculty of Communication Dean Assoc. Prof. Dr. Agah Gümüş was brought to life with the important contributions of EMU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam and Vice Rector for Administrative and Technical Affairs Prof. Dr. Özgür Eren.
When naming the streets, people important to humanity were selected. Names for streets in which faculties are located were selected by remembering important scientists or artists relating to the essence of the faculty. For example the street where the Health Sciences Faculty is located was named Ibn Sīnā and the street where the Architecture Faculty is located was named Mimar Sinan (Sinan the Architect). Other street names include people such as Albert Einstein, Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.
Both existing and new students expressed their satisfaction about the project as well as campus visitors.
