Mount Assisi Gardens at Schwab Estate
Across from the main entrance to the University are the lush gardens of Mt. Assisi. Visitors can walk the Stations of the Cross under arbors of wisteria, sit quietly on a bench and ponder the goodness of God in nature, or light a candle at one of the two shrines.
The gardens of the magnificent former Charles M. Schwab Estate (now Mount Assisi Friary) are open for public viewing. The Italian Renaissance style garden was created by Charles Wellford Leavitt Jr., a pioneering landscape engineer who also designed Forbes Field.
