Magnolias' Bloom at CVM

Fragrant magnolia flowers are still in bloom at CVM. These trees have been here since the Wise Center was first built. The "Magnolia Grove" is dedicated to the charter class of the college of veterinary medicine. Each of the 22 trees was dedicated to a member of the graduating class of 1981. A plaque was placed on the northwest corner of the building, showing the layout of the grove.
