Horticulture tour of Southern Utah UniversityIn celebration of Southern Utah University’s 125th Birthday, SUU, in partnership with the Visit Cedar City • Brian Head is hosting a series of guided experiences. These tours will showcase the University as never before. Exploring the past, present, and future of SUU, these guided experiences are a true celebration of the spirit of our founders. Our June event will be a horticulture walking tour of SUU's beautiful campus.

The physical landscape of a university represents an interplay of plants, people and horticultural practice over time. During this tour, we will examine trees, shrubs and flowers from the present and the past, and how the landscape enhances and defines our campus history.

Ross Murdock, SUU Grounds horticulturist, will guide the tour. Tours will be held on Thursday, June 2 and Thursday, June 16 at 7 p.m. Meet in the Library Plaza. The tour will last approximately one hour and should be stroller friendly. SUU Guided Experiences are free and open to all.

In 1897 the founders of Southern Utah University believed so strongly in the power of education that they risked their lives and finances for the privilege of building and hosting an institution of higher education in rural Cedar City, Utah. Their determination and grit are woven into the cultural fabric of SUU. SUU’s enduring legacy is built on 125 years of fortitude, determination, and community triumph. Celebrate with us as we explore our rich history and prepare for a bright future.
