Is I il 4 STATE COLLEGE or KENTUCKY. I tunity to reach in a few minutes any part of the city. The campus is laid I i out in walks, drives, and lawns, and is planted with a choice variety of native I and exotic trees and shrubs, to which additions are constantly being made. A portion of the land has recently been reserved for a botanical garden, in {‘ which will be grown the most desirable native plants, with a view to testing { 3 their adaptability to cultivation and to giving increased facilities to students taking agricultural and biological courses. Two and a half acres, forming ` ‘ the northeast portion of the campus, inclosed and provided with a grand stand, is devoted to the field sports of the students. ` About three-quarters of a mile south of the campus, on the Nicholas- ville pike, an extension of South Limestone street, is the Experiment Sta- tion Farm, consisting of two hundred and three acres, to which sixty-four and a half acres have been added by recent purchase. Here the field exper- iments of the Station are conducted, and students have opportunities to witness tests of varieties of field crops, dairy tests, fertilizer tests, fruit-spray- ing tests ; in short, all the scientific experimentation of a thoroughly equip- ped and organized Station. The front of the farm is pasture and orchard. i The back portion is divided off into two hundred one-tenth acre plots, for convenience in making crop tests. BUILDINGS.
