With spring in the air and graduation around the corner, everyone is starting to snap
pictures around campus, really, who can blame them? The natural beauty of our campus
is always picture-ready. Here are a few of our favorite spots for photoshoots, either
with a group or on your own.
Since its installation in 2017, the Cocky statue has been a fixture for impromptu
photoshoots on campus. If he's not currently occupied by a tour group, try and snag
a pic with him.
Capstone is one of the most recognizable buildings on campus. You can get a shot of
it from a different perspective from the third floor patio of Gambrell.
Located around the Horseshoe are many quiet corners perfect for taking a quick snapshot.
This one is next to the journalism school, near the Kennedy Greenhouse Studio.
Everyone loves a good Columbia sunset and a great view of the city, capture both with
a picture from the top of Horizon Garage.
The Thomas Cooper Library reflecting pool is a frequent backdrop for photos. Whether
you jumped into it when the men's basketball team went to the Final Four or passed
by it a thousand times during your late-night study sessions, remember it forever
with a beautiful picture on a spring day.
Taking a picture with a group of friends? Staircases are good to make sure everybody
fits in the picture. The McCutchen House on the Horseshoe has the perfect staircases
for your next group shot.
First created when the Russell House was being renovated this past summer, the "Forever
to Thee" mural is now permanently on campus. Take a picture of the university's signature
line from the alma mater while on your way to Panera Bread for lunch.
