CNU is known for being a beautiful campus. Here are a few places you should definitely check out, whether you’re a student or just visiting!
- The “Secret” Garden. Through an easily missed doorway in the Ferguson Center for the Arts, there is a secret garden outside. Complete with swinging seats and plenty of beautiful greenery, it’s a place where anyone can enjoy a terrific natural ambiance as your worries melt away.
- The Great Lawn. Everyone knows this place. Though, not everyone spends much time here. The Great Lawn is a relaxation hub for all Captains. Whether you want to toss a Frisbee around, or just lay out on the grass, there’s plenty of space for both. The grass is mowed weekly, so it always looks crisp and clean.
- The Geese Fountain. The Geese Fountain is located right outside of the Pope Chapel. It’s a great place to sit down by and be soothed by the trickling water sounds. Though, this is also a place of tradition for CNU students. Graduating seniors toss the pennies they were given their freshman year convocation into the fountain for good luck.
- The walkway to Commons. During the autumn and winter seasons, the walkway to Commons across the James River courts, is littered with orange and red leaves. It’s perfect for some awesome picture posing. And the best part? You’re on the way to Commons, so grab a bite!
