Campus

The campus grounds of "the Mount" have been appreciated for hosting a diverse representation of landscape material to include mature southern magnolia, ginkgo tree, pagoda tree Styphnolobium, maple, Albizia julibrissin mimosa/silk tree, hardy crape myrtle, cedar trees, Metasequoia, various oaks, laurels, Mahonia aquifolium grape-holly, hardy prickley pear cactus opuntia, yucca, ferns, and various other trees, bushes, and plants. Of particular interest are the hardy orange poncirus trifoliata, the needle palms, and the empress tree Paulownia tomentosa that can be found growing outside with no additional winter protection in "the Quad" area of the campus. Whitetail deer, nearly tame chipmunks, and wall lizards are some of the campus fauna that are commonly observed on campus. Various songbirds and raptors are present and make for great birdwatching between classes. Although the campus landscape has fallen in esteem over the years (at one time each planting was mapped and groups would visit the campus specifically in appreciation of the horticulture), it is still a well maintained campus.
