Spring has sprung at Wake Forest, and our landscaping crew has celebrated its arrival with eye-popping floral creations in every corner of campus. The technicolor works of art make the perfect backdrop for a game of Frisbee on Hearn Plaza or a philosophy class held al fresco on Manchester. As March unfolds each year, students and faculty catch a serious case of spring fever, and the only cure is to head outdoors to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine and the beauty of our campus.
University Photographer Ken Bennett cannot resist the allure of spring either. Enjoy the many ways he captures the sights of the season at Wake Forest.
The green thumb of Wake Forest's Landscape Services team is on full display in the spring, with vivid colors and creative designs popping up across campus. Seasonal perennials, ornamental grasses, flowering shrubs and bulbs create lush and inviting gardens to complement our Georgian architecture.
With the arrival of spring, the days lengthen and offer lots of opportunities for capturing the beauty of our campus in perfect lighting. On a cool spring morning, early mist and the rising sun work in concert to create a stunning image of Z. Smith Reynolds Library.
Whether it's for exercise or relaxation, study time or a break from the books - spring time means outdoor time. Nothing lifts the spirits or recharges the battery like a stroll through Reynolda Gardens, a mini-picnic on the Quad or hanging out on the swings on Davis Field.
