This campus white oak tree, which was dated at nearly 350 years old, was felled by a storm July 8, 2016. A year later, like all good Spartans, it refuses to give up and continues to grow. The tree sits outside of Linton Hall, home to the College of Arts and Letters. Chris Long, dean of the college has been documenting its story in pictures via his Twitter account. Photo by Derrick L.
