The plum trees are always the first to bloom. Their fuchsia petals decorate the walkways outside of Duke Libraries every February. Around the corner, cherry trees form a dense white canopy. The stained glass and warm stone pinnacles of the Duke Chapel can be glimpsed through their boughs.
These are the first hallmarks of spring at Duke -- a time when campus stirs with activity before the dog days of summer. From the magnolia blossoms in the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, to a bustling evening on the Campus Center walkway, spring at Duke is full of sights worth taking in. Experience it all in this time lapse journey across the university’s grounds.
