Fall Foliage Tour

When we asked alumnae/i on Facebook to name their favorite Hudson Valley leaf-peeping spots, we were pleased to learn that most thought the best place to see the foliage was right here on campus!


The question brought back a flood of memories. Some alums remembered jogging through the Vassar Farm at the height of the season. Others recalled the magnificent views to be had just by strolling around Sunset Lake.

A host of alums reminisced about the intoxicating sight of the red maples on the Quad. And those who were lucky enough to have lived in residence halls bordering the expanse reported needing only to look out of their windows to enjoy the riot of colors.

Take a trip down Memory Lane with this slideshow of campus images taken this fall. You’re sure to see one of your favorite leaf-peeping spots.
