Walked the campus, beautiful area, very serene on Saturday morning during the flooding, Great place for a relaxing walk. Lots of history in the buildings, interesting sculptures and just a peaceful walk during the troubled times for Houston during the Hurricane Harvey aftermath and clean-up.

I have walked and jogged through this campus many times now, and it is a treasure! Gardens, tree-lined streets and walking paths, cricket games and soccer games and softball games... And bicycle races! The architecture is beautiful, and the people-watching and scenery is first rate!
