Narrative

We chose this tree because it has stood out to us in our daily life on campus. On many occasions, we’ve hung out under the tree watching people enjoy the sunshine in the courtyard, playing basketball and just hanging out. It also stands out to us because it is an older tree that had to have been preserved during all of the construction of the Woodland Glen’s, which makes it really special.
