We found on street parking nearby, and wandered the grounds, then visited the Wren Building and read all the plaques to students and graduates involved in wars from 1700s to present. A very special tribute.

Walked around the grounds of the college. The brick is lovely and the buildings are beautiful. Would like to have seen the inside of some of the buildings, but they were closed for the holiday. Lovely grounds with a huge live oak tree.
