From Lake Waban to the H. H. Hunnewell Arboretum, Wellesley’s campus offers plenty of settings for studying alfresco.
The perfect place for a study session with a view? The “spoonholders” dotting the path along Lake Waban.
Severance Hill’s beautiful oak tree has offered its shade to students for more than 100 years.
Take a seat on one of the Adirondack chairs on Green Beach and dive into your reading.
The slope below the Whitin Observatory is the site of the Edible Ecosystem Teaching Garden, designed by permaculture experts Dave Jacke and Keith Zaltzberg along with Wellesley College students, staff, and faculty. In spring 2015, Betsy’s Garden Classroom, created in memory of Elizabeth Anderson Fitzgerald ’60, enhanced the spot. Sited under a 200-year-old white oak, the garden provides a gathering place for College classes and visiting groups.
Tupelo Point is a secluded spot. Here, your only interruption is likely to come in the form of a swan gliding quietly across the water.
