About Our Campus

Our campus is well known for its beauty. Its woods, carefully tended gardens, and mix of historical and contemporary Northwest art and architecture make it a unique and distinctive location. It is also a fun and lively hub of activity for most of the year, with amenities and resources to fit your group’s needs whenever your event takes place.

Campus Activities and Events

While you are on our campus, consider attending one of the outstanding academic and cultural events featuring our own faculty and students and leaders from around the world. The Hoffman Gallery (open September through May) is also an engaging place to visit, emphasizing work at the forefront of the contemporary tradition: challenging, provocative, and international in scope.

You can also spend time appreciating the natural beauty of our surroundings. Our wooded trails, rose garden, and guided tree walk provide a chance to get out and explore, as does nearby Tryon Creek State Park.
