The Biology Pond provides a scene of bucolic solitude on the west side of the Missouri Southern campus.  Fish, turtles, insects, frogs and other creatures call it home. 

Spanned by a red Japanese bridge, the body of water has served as a lab for many years for Southern Biology students.  

Interestingly, before it was restored to nature, the pond was a swimming pool for the Buchanan and Wallower families who lived in the Mission Hills Mansion.
