The Marjorie Weinberg Garden

weinberg-lens400x515.jpgThe shady nook now known as the Marjorie Weinberg Garden has seen its share of Northwestern history. The elevated site at the south end of Deering Meadow was once a favorite spot for graduation ceremonies and speakers, including a 1954 convocation honoring then-President Dwight D. Eisenhower. During the turbulent Vietnam era, the ground was seized by students to stage protests and a strike. In 2007, the area was landscaped and re-named in honor of College namesake Marjorie Weinberg ’50. But the original steps to the ascent remain, where you can hear the echo of your own voice when you stand on the Northwestern seal encircled by the garden’s stone bench.
