Tom Owen Campus Walking TourEver breeze by some of the older buildings on Belknap campus and wonder what their stories are? Now is your chance to hear them!

As a part of the Cards Commuter Challenge, the UofL Sustainability Council is hosting this fun, educational walk. Be sure to log your walk on Cardinal Directions to be entered to win prizes!

Those interested in participating just need to meet up at the Ekstrom Library Porch (interior of campus side, across from Humanities Building).

The tour will be led by Dr. Tom Owen, veteran walking tour raconteur and local historian, who has been an archivist at UofL’s Archives and Special Collections for over 40 years.

As Tom describes it, “This is a 75-minute opportunity for people to learn something new, appreciate campus and get a little exercise. I am always struck by the university as a destination — the water features, the pendulum, the plantings, the flower beds, there’s just so much to see and enjoy.”
