Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College >
While it may be true that knowledge blooms abundantly within the halls
of Swarthmore College, the real master class is
taught by Mother Nature outside
— in the 300-acre Scott Arboretum that meanders through campus like lush, climbing ivy. Created in 1929, the Arboretum (and neighboring Crum Creek Woods) are woven into the school’s DNA. Seniors pin a garden rose to their gown before their commencement ceremony in the outdoor amphitheater — where tulip trees stand majestically from grassy tiers cut into the land- scape. Luckily, students aren’t
the only ones who can enjoy this class in botanical masterpieces
— the arboretum is open daily to the public from dawn to dusk and admission is free.
