Sixth Most Beautiful Campus

That's according to a website called, College Consensus - with the slight qualification that it prizes Autumn foliage. So, obviously, a lot of southwestern campuses wouldn't make the cut. Still, it's nice to see Wesleyan's carefully curated architectural legacy and natural beauty getting the attention it deserves:

    If Michigan not on this list it's not real. Same company does "Most haunted campuses 🤔.

    ^Well, I won't pretend I've set foot on all thirty campuses, but, #27 looks a little shaky to me.

    I have been to #27 and it doesn't qualify - in any season.

    I love Wesleyan Would have been very happy for my kids to go there. That said, even in autumn, it wouldn't rank in my top 10 most beautiful campuses list.

    ^I was looking at the staff backgrounds of the College *Consensus* (an obvious take-off on College *Confidential*) team and it is striking that they all come from the American southwest. So, it might explain such notable omissions as Swarthmore, Hamilton and Amherst. OTOH, Wesleyan almost certainly got a boost from being cross-listed on the "25 Best River and Lake Colleges" (#5)

    Rating is not at all surprising. The diversity and quality of the architecture on the Wesleyan campus is hard to beat. On a fall afternoon, NESCAC football in the center of campus on one of the oldest collegiate athletic fields still in use is a unique experience.

    No Boston College for autumn with the trees grass and plantings. Nah list is sketchy !

    lol.

    There are so many - it’s a good list. But like any other list, so subjective.

    Posters may want to consider that the site itself states that the included colleges have "not [been ranked] according to any measure of their relative beauty." (Italics added.)
