Narrative

I remember when school first started, being a freshmen at such a big school and seeing all the beautiful landscaping this school has to offer. They encourage you to take your freshmen orientation tour during the spring so that you can see all the bright green trees and flowers in bloom. This tree in the spring is nothing short of captivating, and a great place to find shade during the hot Kentucky months. However, I would have to say in the fall is when its beauty peaks. With leaves the color of orange flames it certainly draws attention. Whether you’re admiring its beauty, or looking for a shady place to do your homework, this tree is one in a million and we are very proud parents!
