Get outside

Spending time in nature benefits us both physically and psychologically, leading to cognitive benefits and increased happiness. Environmental neuroscientists suggest that spending time outside can improve learning, memory, and attention.

Delaware Law School’s 34-acre campus includes woods, a stream, walking trails, and basketball courts. Enjoy a hike through the forest, read a book in the gazebo, or connect with friends next to the fountain.

Off campus, the surrounding community offers many opportunities to connect with nature.
