A splash of "Gilmour Grenache," anyone? This tribute to President Davie Jane Gilmour's leadership (and love of flowers) was recently uncorked outside Le Jeune Chef Restaurant, regularly recognized by Wine Spectator magazine for its cellared selection.
The latest in a string of campus improvements, a "daily special" for the ever-inventive GS grounds crew, points visitors to the restaurant's red-roofed entrance.
The floral fruit of the vine flows from "bottle" to "glass."
A toast to summer
The main entrance is decked out in seasonal finery, a wardrobe that grows more becoming with every passing day.
Shadows lengthen outside the Student & Administrative Services Center, taking their cue from the year's longest dose of daylight.
One of two floral frames is already primed for picture-perfect posing.
The colorful "PCT" alongside the tennis courts, always an eye-catching element, will flourish in the weeks ahead.
Beauty is a beholder's prerogative, and there's much to consider in these delightful details.
Ravishing roses are aplenty on the campus mall.
On-campus housing, including Dauphin Hall, is also dressed smartly.
The Thompson Professional Development Center, bustling again behind its shroud of greenery, welcomes summertime visitors.
Flower power in metal towers, an attractive mainstay of exterior campus décor.
Refreshing water elements across campus complement the flow of technology and the steady stream of the nearby Susquehanna River.
Aaaaaaaaaaah, one could be tempted to take a dip in the Veterans Fountain as temperatures and humidity rise – but one would be strongly advised NOT to!
Awaiting the return of Wildcats …
… and a tomorrow in the making!
