An exciting place you can explore year-round is our campus arboretum, a three-acre preserve behind Brooks Hall.
The attractive setting, developed more than 75 years ago, contains nearly 100 native, exotic and ornamental tree and shrub species and is a living learning laboratory for students, as well as a quiet place to study.
Collections of trees include Sapindaceae (maple and buckeye), Fagaceae (beech, oak and chestnut), Juglandaceae (walnut and hickory), Fabaceae (locusts) and Betulaceae (birch and allies) families, as well as a wide range of conifers.
The Arboretum is located behind Brooks Hall and is open to the public from dawn to dusk. Please leave no trace and carry in what you carry out.
