OVERVIEW

The Central Portion of the gardens are nestled between several of the buildings on campus, and are traveled through by staff and students on a daily basis.  These gardens have an intimate feel, encouraging visitors to slow down, stop and smell the flowers!

 The East Portion of the gardens offers a contrasting experience.  The site is much larger, with an open and expansive feel.  To get a feel for their scale, click here to see a Youtube video of aerial footage shot by one of the College's instructors using a remote-controlled plane. Hang on, it's a fun ride!
