Mariana H. Qubein Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

Plazas, Promenades, and Amphitheaters

The Strickland Scholarship Plaza

Dedicated in September 2020, The Elizabeth Miller Strickland Scholarship Plaza celebrates, recognizes and inspires existing and future endowment donors, while also providing a location for students to reflect on the impact of philanthropy in their own lives and academic pursuits.

Patriot’s Plaza


The Mahler Family Promenade

The Mahler Family  promenade is located between Congdon Hall and Wanek School of Natural Sciences and has been extended to the Plato S. Wilson School of Commerce and the Caine Conservatory. The Mahler Promenade includes The Topiary Fusion Garden, which is part of the Mariana H. Qubein Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

Kester Promenade

The Gene and Jane Kester International Promenade is lined with the international flags, which represent the dozens of countries that make up HPU’s student body. An “outdoor classroom,” the promenade also features wireless internet service, classical music that plays throughout the day, and 20 sculptures of famous historical figures that are found along many of the promenade benches. The Henley and Finch fountains prominently anchor the both ends of the promenade.
