UWindosr President Alan Wildeman is looking for a name for the “car-free and care-free Sunset Avenue.”

In an address to campus Friday morning he said that does not want the University of Windsor to forever refer to the new space as Sunset Avenue.

“It is not where the sun sets, it is where the feeling about being at a university should be nourished,” said Wildeman.
“So I am going to launch a process shortly to come up with a name for this new pedestrian thoroughfare. It will be a process open to everyone. I will tell you right now that the suggestion to call it “The Street that Used to be called Sunset” won’t fly.”

In addition, he is also looking to name the historic dead-ending of Patricia Avenue.

He said the names could be ones that reflect our traditional lands, they could be ones that reflect our diversity, they could be ones that honor great alumni or scholars, they could be ones that remind us that education and compassion have the power to change lives immeasurably.
