W&M Campus Scavenger Hunt!
Up for an adventure? Check out PRL's Campus Scavenger Hunt. Our beloved patron, Walnut, has taken it upon himself to create a tour of some of his favorite places of campus, with clues to each location and a healthy, responsible amount of general foolery. To participate, head to the Sadler Terrace and visit this link.
PRL's director, Dorothy Ibes and Cathy Forestell (W&M Psychology), published a peer-reviewed article "The role of campus greenspace and meditation on college students’ mood" in April 2020 in the Journal of American College Health, demonstrating the mood-enhancing benefits of 20 minutes in a campus greenspace.
