A budding crop of daffodils in Tappan Square serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

Tiny purple buds cling to thin tree limbs with a small carpet of yellow and white daffodils bending in the breeze nearby. Tappan Square in early spring is not only filled with beautiful pictures, but a visual start to a new season that makes its way across campus. 

In this photo series we stop by Warner Concert Hall to hear percussion ensembles; order a latte from President Carmen Twillie Ambar in Azariah’s Café; roll up our sleeves for the vaccine in Hales Gym; and conclude with softball, track, and baseball games near Phillips Gym.
