Take a self-guided tour of the nation's most beautiful campus

Whoa, it's been awhile since our last post. Well, hopefully the following will make the wait worthwhile. After careful planning and delicate refining, the 2011 Western Walking Tour map and guide is available.

Western is undoubtedly the nation's most attractive campus and now visitors can enjoy some its lesser known features with the recently released self-guided Walking Tour. The guide cuts a leisurely path through campus that includes green attractions, such as, the many gardens and naturalized areas, LEED buildings, and relevant green research locales. The guide also brings light to some of the history that makes Western so aesthetically unique.

Hard copies will be available from Physical Plant upon request ( - the online version is available for download now [PDF].

The tour was created through a partnership between members of the Geography Department, Graphic Services, and Physical Plant Division.
