Campus Life

A trail winds through the verdant greenery of the arboretum as a lone hiker approaches

Western staffer Luke Hollister of University Relations and Marketing is out and about on campus and in the nearby community often, shooting images of campus and Bellingham life that we will share here in Western Today. Above, a hiker makes their way through the arboretum; below, a sunny afternoon in Boulevard Park.
