The Campus

Our campus has 200 acres of award-winning architecture and landscaping; more than 50 academic, athletic, and residential buildings; and a nationally recognized arboretum with 400 species of trees and shrubs, a 3.5-acre duck pond, gardens, and wooded areas.

Our arboretum renewal program includes planting trees, such as these saplings, along the Nature Trail. The goal is to help restore the natural four-layer structure of the eastern deciduous forest, which includes large canopy and understory species. Photo: Patrick Montero.

Nick Takénobu Ogawa '05

There’s not really a road map for success as a non-classical cello player and composer, so Nick Takénobu Ogawa ’05 has been making his own path, one instinctual step at a time. Ogawa has been playing shows and releasing recordings under the nom-de-music Takénobu since he graduated from Haverford.
