[Photo Story] Back To School At The Arboretum

Don’t break out your sweaters and pumpkin spice-flavored snacks just yet, folks. While the coziness of fall weather is creeping closer, the summer heat is still beating down in Happy Valley.

The leaves are still green and the sun hasn’t been covered by gray skies, making this week a great time to take a stroll around Penn State’s Arboretum before the seasons change.

What’s a walk around campus without seeing a friendly chipmunk in your path?

When the weather is this nice, it’s hard not to see groups of friends playing Spikeball or lounging in a grassy part of campus.

There is wildlife galore around every corner at the Arboretum including fish, insects, and beautiful blooms.

The flowers look like spring. The calendar says it’s almost fall. However, the temperature is screaming it’s still summer.

It’s so hot in State College that it’s making this water look pretty refreshing.

Please don’t jump in the Arboretum ponds. It’s a joke.

The plants won’t look like this in just a few weeks, so grab a friend and go see the Arboretum for yourself while the weather is still nice!
