Students may be too on-task to notice, but the last few weeks of spring semester are among the loveliest on campus. Adding to the color this year are 8,700 flower bulbs -- all but 200 of them daffodils -- planted in a handful of locations last fall by campus services teams. The perennials are another piece of President Steven Leath's beautification initiative.
