Bee on False Sunflower

From the moment students arrive on campus in August, summer is in full bloom with warm temperatures and green landscapes as far as the eye can see. The verdant lushness accentuates campus, and nearby trails and waterways beckon.  Local farmers offer strawberry pickings and other fresh produce possibilities. Neighboring Green Lake, just seven miles from campus, is a historic resort community along the 27 miles of shoreline of the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin, and offers an abundance of fishing, golfing, boating and stand up paddle.
