Each alumnus of George Mason University takes from the university a collection of experiences and memories that shapes who they will be in the future. Two alumni in particular walked forth from the very early days of George Mason with a foundation that has allowed them to continue to flourish.
The college is saddened to share news of the passing of George Mason University Professor Alan Cheuse, who died on Friday, July 31, as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident two weeks ago. Professor Cheuse was a writer, teacher, longtime literary commentator, and a friend and colleague. His creativity and insight will be missed by all of those who were fortunate to have known him.
Mason alumni Nicole Idar and Elizabeth Gutting have established the Alan Cheuse Literary Review, and ask the Mason community of writers, faculty and students alike, to submit written work to share their thoughts with Professor Cheuse as he recovers from a serious automobile accident.
