Landscaping: No. 38-43

From ornamental beds to oak trees, the landscape services department at Missouri S&T keeps the landscaping on our 280-acre campus looking great.

The dogwoods are in bloom. Can spring break be far behind?


No. 39: Rocks outside
Toomey Hall

A little bit of dolomite right in the middle of campus. This is the same type of rock used to build the foundations of the Rolla Building and Norwood Hall.

No. 40: Playing Frisbee
at the Puck

It’s the ultimate way to spend some
free time.

No. 41: Earth Day

St. Pat’s isn’t the only time we get
our green on. Every year, the campus hosts hundreds of kids who come to learn about the environment. Come to Earth Day and you might even get a
free tree.

No. 42: Oak trees outside Toomey Hall

Margie (Dickerson) Gordon, ChE’02, met her husband, John, EE’02, under
the big oak tree on the west side of the Puck in front of Toomey Hall during the freshman orientation picnic on her very first day on campus. Years later, they
had their engagement photos taken in
the very same spot.

    We have visited the Missouri S&T campus several times and I have marveled at the beauty of a particular hearty shrub with dark green large leaves that are red at the tips. What is the name of this shrub?
