Stop and Smell the Roses – Literally

By the time spring semester finals roll around, procrastination mode is in full swing. The weather is finally nice and the end of the school year is near. Let’s face it: no one wants to be stuck inside studying. Fortunately, the UW-Madison Arboretum offers the perfect solution.

Here are three reasons why the Arboretum is the latest and greatest place to wipe your study woes away:

1) Bang for your Buck– It is free to explore the grounds and take in all it has to offer, so you won’t be spending money you can’t spare. Also, it serves as a great study SPOT and a great study BREAK, so you can save time by having both in one location.

2) Get off Campus and Enjoy Nature– Located roughly ten minutes from campus, the Arboretum is a chance to change up the scenery from a city landscape to one filled with beautiful flowers and some of Wisconsin’s most popular animals. Plus, buses run to and from the Arboretum frequently to make your trip easy.

3) Score some Time to Yourself– Being on a college campus of roughly 40,000 students makes it difficult to find time to be alone and decompress. Covering 1,200 acres of land makes it possible to spend hours there without seeing another soul, proving that the Arboretum is the perfect place for rest and relaxation.

Check out the UW-Madison Arboretum website for more information about classes they offer, bus routes to the park, and why it’s the perfect escape for a student in need of a break.
