View from the rooftop patio of Ward Hall: What was formerly a dirt parking lot along the lake is now a pretty pathway that meanders under the cypress trees along the shores of Lake Virginia. In the distance, the downtown Orlando skyline stands as a reminder of the campus’s proximity to The City Beautiful.
The view of the Harold & Ted Alfond Sports Center from the lake is a reminder of the College’s rich sports tradition, including the water sports of rowing, sailing, and water skiing.
The benches scattered along the water's edge provide students the perfect resting space to catch up with friends, reflect on the day, or enjoy a moment of solitude.
Canoes at Alfond Boathouse sit ready for a peaceful paddle. Behind them, the Susan O. and Frederick A. Hauck Botanical Research Center serves as a learning laboratory for students.
A favorite slowing spot for Winter Park’s Scenic Boat Tour, this view of the Cornell Campus Center from the lake supremely showcases the College’s splendor and stature.
