long vistas

Significant topography on the campus results in a number of scenic vistas. For example, the height of Thatcher Way affords striking views of the campus with the foothills of the Berkshires beyond. Views to the south look over the Holyoke Mountain Range. The pedestrian spine provides dramatic glimpses to the west of the foothills.
