Beautiful, tree-filled campus with old buildings - it's attractive in all seasons and well worth a walk, or even getting a rental bike and cycling around it (It's big, but flat). In October the fall colors are lit up in a special event, in summer...More

A little bit early, I guess. My friend came on 18th.Oct last year: good timing and earlier than usual. Usually late in October. It depends on though. And I'd like to mention Nasty Smell. Warch out the nuts !!

This is a wonderful place for autumn leaves, especially the Gingko Avenue. There are cafeterias and restaurants in the campus.
