Heritage Tree Tour
Welcome to the Clarke University Heritage Tree Tour!
In 2018, Clarke Professor of Philosophy Norm Freund and his student interns researched the founding of our school. They learned the history of the class trees planted on our campus and created this Heritage Tour of Clarke University. If you would like to walk this tour on our campus, use the map and key to the right and listen to the audio files in the blue box to your lower right. Since the project was completed in the Summer of 2018, the video and audio will not contain anything beyond that time.
If you are unable to make it to campus to walk the tour for yourself, feel free to watch the videos below with the inspirational narration from Norm. Happy listening!
