One of the neat things about St. Michael's is the existence of hidden treasures that are, at first, not so obvious: events such as the Playhouse theater and places such as the Teaching Gardens of Saint Michael's College. Established several years ago by Prof. Bang Jensen (Education) and Prof. Mark Lubkowitz (Biology) as three gardens; Books in Bloom, Native Plants, and the Arboretum, the Teaching Gardens have now expanded to include the Word Garden and the International Garden.
The International Garden has an "equator" running through the middle of it which is really neat.
My favorite part of the Teaching Gardens is the privet hedge from the Harry Potter books because it reminds me of England where everyone has a privet hedge somewhere in their garden. Almost any time of day someone is relaxing in the Gardens, having class, or making sentences with the words in stone in the Word Garden.
For a small financial outlay Chris Cleary, the stone artist will laser your favorite word in stone.
