Admissions/Student Services Garden
This entryway to the upper level of campus is at the back of the Foster Administration building. Before 1997, when offices for Admissions were relocated here, it was also seen by most students and their parents making inquiries about UMD. For years this area was without any trees, shrubs and flowers, and had no color.
Students often complained about the grayness of the environment and the lack of landscaping. The new plantings, designed by Jim Sears and the University Landscape Committee, were installed in 1994 with the help of students and grounds personal. The plants soften this entrance and stairway as they help bring the architecture into human scale. Costs of this planting were less than $1000 and were provided by the Facilities and Grounds budget.
