Favorite Spot on Campus

The Terrace next to Tyler Campus Center is my favorite spot on campus. When walking around campus, the terrace is always a great place to stop and enjoy everything around you. Whether standing at the edge to view the beauty of campus and Malibu or sitting under the tree and appreciating the shade from the California sun, it's always an enjoyable spot on campus.
