Located between Patterson Hall and Burlington Nuclear Labs, the M.E. Gardner Arboretum was named for Monroe Evans Gardner. Gardner served as Head of the Department of Horticulture from 1933 to 1956, as well as N. C. State Fair judge for 32 years.

The statue in the arboretum was built in honor of Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, William R. Johnston. He was always seen strolling across campus reading his books, and now that memory will always live on. It is a campus tradition to rub the professor's head before one's first chemsitry exam for good luck.
