THAT'S A LOT OF SUMMERTIME SHADE
"OL' WOODY" is a magnificent Live Oak tree which was wisely spared when the Wolf Ranch Shopping Mall was constructed. You can find Ol' Woody standing proudly near the Kirkland's Store. It is believed the tree got its start on or about 1848.
Directions: I-35 Exit 261, west for a long block, then turn left into the mall area.
POPPY FESTIVAL BANNERS FLY IN APRIL
THE ANNUAL POPPY FESTIVAL IS HELD IN APRIL. There are bands on the courthouse square and a variety of activities.

TEXAS LIMESTONE HOME
NEWER HOMES are often built from a primary local resource, Texas Limestone. Its mined just east of I-35 in the Georgetown area; if you look you can see the giant pit.
Directions: all over town and in the countryside as well.
THE SWU BOOKSTORE
THE BOOKSTORE IS LOCATED ON THE UPPER LEVEL of the Student Union. If you are a t-shirt collector like me, this is apparently the only place where you can purchase a Southwestern University t-shirt or other memorabilia like coffee mugs and so on.
Directions: THE STUDENT UNION IS MORE OR LESS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CAMPUS.
ENTRANCE TO THE STUDENT UNION
THIS IS TRULY A fine facility for the university.
Directions: ITS PRETTY MUCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CAMPUS SO you may need to ask for directions to find your way there. However there is some visitor parking available.
WELCOME TO THE CAMPUS
TAKE A STROLL across the campus, or at least drive through. The school has a nice golf course too. Visit the student union; you might have to ask for directions.
Directions: On the north side of East University Avenue (highway 29) at the east end of town. Its easy to find.
