They use it for actual religious services here, but they also use it. Like a reflection like sitting area, I guess with stones and everything, it's really pretty. Apparently, in this garden of reflection, there's a book where people write confessions in it anonymously. So I've never actually seen the book, but I've heard it's there. I'm walking up the steps of the chapel. I have to walk across it every day to get to class, see what's going on in the chapel. I've only been here once for a ceremony for my scholars program, but I think they have, like, a cappella shows and stuff here, too. They definitely church on Sunday mornings, and I'm sure other times of the week, but it's a very It's a very famous landmark on our campus. So let's go take a look at the little garden of remembrance thing behind it. See if we could find the confession because I know it's. Okay, so there's a spent right and they're under there. I'm in my first semester here at UMD, out of state, and I have absolutely no regrets. Currently sitting with one of my closest friends here in Maryland. School is kicking my butt most of the time, and sometimes it feels like the world is falling apart. As long as I'm not failing, I can't be doing that bad hoping My four years here are filled with growth, prosperity, joy and memories. That's really awesome that they have these books here. Yeah, this is our little A place where you can sit and reflect. This is a hole, whole little garden back here, I'll show you the rest of it. They will walk right up next to you run in front of you.

This little labyrinth type of thing is where you can their stones in the middle. I'm not sure the significance of it, but so little area back here, supposed to be just a place to reflect and have a nice, peaceful moment. I'm sure you can sit out here and study, too, on a nice day, but it's honestly frigid outside, so I wouldn't recommend sitting outside right now in November.
