‘Fall’-ing for Campus’s Seasonal Scenes

Students walk past the university’s new M on a warm October day as the trees around it begin to take on tinges of red and yellow.

With mornings now demanding flannel and fleece and the afternoon murk descending ever earlier, it’s time to look at the bright side—literally—of living and working on a campus that’s designated as an arboretum and botanical garden as well as a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

As autumn deepens and the chlorophyll that colors trees in shades of green takes a winter vacation, it’s leaving behind golden, orange and bold red hues to briefly shine through and beautify our strolls to the library, lab or office.

If you’re not currently on the de-densified University of Maryland campus, here’s a vivid look at this fall’s foliage and the people enjoying it.
