Both Cross Campus and Old Campus provide relaxing, park-like atmospheres. They're wonderful spots to throw a frisbee around, sit and read, or take your lunch.

Walking around the campus leaves you awestruck! The historic sculptures, gates, and doorways are so fun to pose in front of, especially for little children. The library still has a working card catalog which is mind-blowing for the little ones!!
