Not only does UMass Boston have a 96% green rating (thank you, Princeton Review) but we also have our own secret garden right in the heart of campus. If you haven’t checked out the Biology Department’s greenhouse yet, you certainly should: It is a little piece of serenity in the middle of our lively campus. It houses many different species of plants. Not only is it a great place to learn about plant diversity and get hands-on experience outside of the classroom, but it’s a beautiful place to spend some time on a break or just to clear your head.
So as the weather begins to cool off, which it eventually will, you can get your dose of spring, summer, and the tropics by stopping by the greenhouse.
