Stetson University

DeLand, FL

Recognizing the critical role that an attractive and welcoming campus plays in the decision-making of prospective students, Stetson University hired our team to guide a major improvement effort on its DeLand campus that was accomplished during the summer months and completed prior to the students’ return to campus for the fall semester.

Working closely with the University’s Facilities Department, we reviewed the campus in detail to orchestrate a face-lift for the core campus area that would further minimize the impact of the automobile on the campus, improve the pedestrian experience for current and prospective students, create new gathering spaces related to academic, athletic, residential and student life buildings, and celebrate the quintessential campus space—the Palm Court. In a few short months the core campus was transformed by strategic plantings, a new irrigation system that greatly reduced the campus’s water consumption, and the installation of a new palette of campus furniture of benches, trash receptacles, rockers, tables and chairs, and umbrellas to create a rich campus environment for the University community.
