From the Archives & Special Collections: In Bloom

InBloomThe warm weather has finally arrived! Everyone is making their way outside to enjoy the sun and relax under the trees. It is hard to imagine the campus without large, shady trees and blossoming flowers, but it was not too long ago that the UPS campus was lacking greenery. The picture below was taken in 1951 when the Garden Club began their landscaping project for the campus. Todd hall is pictured in the background. It is incredible that the trees we hang hammocks in were once that small. The landscaping had definitely come a long way, and we are all very thankful. You can look at more pictures of the UPS campus online on A Sound Past.

The Archives & Special Collections is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
