West Lawn of the Lory Student Center

Families and friends come into the cool shade under the large trees on the West Lawn of the Lory Student Center.

In front of the concert pavilion, they spread blankets or open camp chairs, settle the kids and family dogs, then produce picnic dinners. At last, they sit back and wait for the concert to begin...
