couple walking through an autumn forest

October 2024

our living classroom The autumn season peaks in October. The maples on campus change their palette. A morning mist settles on the lake. Geese start their journey south overhead. And the Omega Café makes the best cup of hot cocoa you'll ever have. Walking in the woods, or "Forest Bathing" as many call it, is optimal—the scent and beauty are intoxicating. Explore our marked trails for as long or as short a hike as you want.
