Botanic Garden

    Hidden in the middle of campus is a quiet place where some students and faculty go to get away from the loud noises and stresses of the university. The Botanic Garden is a hidden treasure that goes unseen by many students.
    “It is quiet and peaceful here and where I get all my studying done. It is not as noisy, and I love nature,” said Joanna Villegas, junior Chicano/a studies major. “I am either here or at the Orange Grove.”

    Students visit the garden during their class break or just to get away from the busy campus life. “It is not that packed, and there aren’t tons of people like frat boys blowing whistles,” said Shaywna Couplin, geology major, who joined her friend for a cup of coffee outside in the fresh air.
