USG Garden of Unity & Peace (The GUP)

When you have a chance, check out the campus' new Garden of Unity & Peace (The GUP).  Located in the alcove between Building I and Building II, the GUP has a new entrance (the Eaton Arch), a water fountain, a swing, a free book-swap library, new benches, and a few small tables and chairs.  Other amenities will soon be on their way.  The Garden was created by the Center for Counseling and Consultation, the Culture of Care Network, and other campus groups using funding provided by a suicide prevention grant from the Maryland Suicide Prevention and Early Intervention Network.  There are information sheets about the GUP in the information box at the Eaton Arch.
