A small group of students in Wilder Bowl reading and enjoying the warm March weather serves as inspiration in this week’s photo series.

Wilder Bowl is one of the most visited spaces on campus. The large grassy lawn is used by students, faculty, and staff as a place to hold classes, decompress, chat with friends, and to attend open-air movies and events. On this day, small study groups of students sat on Adirondack chairs, colorful blankets, and leaned against tree trunks.
