internal views

There are also a number of intimate and picturesque views on campus. Examples include the west side of West Experiment Station planted with herbaceous perennials and shade trees; a spectacular Copper Beech tree in Durfee Garden; and the sunken courtyard at W. E. B. Du Bois Library. Views to the Pond are another important aspect of the campus. The natural bowl surrounding the Pond opens up the campus, however several buildings do not take advantage of the view by turning their backs to the Pond, including Fine Arts Center and Memorial Hall.
