<p>After living hear for 8 years, I fail to see the Taco Bell and see only the Garden of Eden. Maybe I'll have to do another thread to have this decided once and for all.</p>

<p>Duke, Wake Forest, UVA, William and Mary ------>southern schools are verrrry nice.</p>

<p>Columbia is great for being in a city. Penn is also nice once you're inside campus. Harvard is really nice too, mostly because of Boston/Cambridge.</p>

<p>Well, half of Hamilton is beautiful. The Kirkland side isn't.</p>

<p>Other beautiful campuses: Davidson, Rhodes, Sewanee, Southwestern</p>

<p>Pepperdine in Malibu, right on the bluffs, is close to perfection.</p>

<p>Stanford Architecture being Taco Bell Modern is funny.</p>

<p>Has anyone other than merlyn seen BC? </p>

<p>Merlyn is it only the old part thats pretty or is the setting etc pretty as well as the old buildings?</p>



<p>The Stanford/Taco Bell link is that they both favor the faux Spanish look. Anyone can see that.</p>



<p>You can't "decide" these things by means of threads on CC. For better or worse, the buildings are what they are.</p>

<p>I went to U of Rochester for quiz bowl tournament and it looked really nice.</p>

<p>The only ones I've visited that qualify:
- Pomona
- Stanford
- McGill
- Columbia</p>

<p>I think it depends on your definition of beautiful...some thing the palm trees and ocean scene is gorgeous, while others love the old-fashioned brick buildings with a lot of trees.</p>

<p>I think Miami University (Ohio) is gorgeous, but Pepperdine is a whole different type of gorgeous.</p>

<p>Cornell, Cal, Wellesley, UC Davis (great open quads and meandering stream around campus, Colgate,</p>

<p>CORNELL is GORGES!!!!</p>

<p>University of Southern California</p>

<p>Swarthmore has the most beautiful campus I've seen. I also liked Yale and Stanford.</p>

<p>Oh, yeah, I forgot USC since I'm not applying... it really juxtaposes with its city environment..</p>

<p>Yale! UVA!! William and Mary. We are disregarding surrounding city right? well...those are some pretty campuses. A lot of schools i guess. DO NOT go by the pictures online though. oh my</p>

<p>Thats what im worried about lol. I will go across the world and find out its really ugly.</p>

<p>Cornell. . .we have a waterfall. Though at the moment it's frozen. . .</p>

<p>Good for those who can deal with the cold, though I personally think the campus looks really nice with snow . . .although I've never seen a picture from a cornell admissions publication that shows the campus in the winter :/</p>

<p>I also like:</p>

<li>U Rochester (too much brick though)</li>
<li>Yale (only the old part)</li>
<li>Boston College</li>
<li>Columbia is nice too (for an urban campus)</li>

<p>Never been to Stanford, but the pics are amazing.</p>

<p>Duke all the way!! It's amazing.</p>

<p>Stanford's architecture is not faux Spanish it is Richardsonian Romanesque, which is a blend of both French and Spanish Romanesque architecture from the 11th Century, the trademark of architect Henry Hobson.</p>

<p>The same style architecture is used at:
Click:</a> Harvard University
Click:</a> Princeton University (Alexander Hall)
Click:</a> Unversity of Vermont (much of the Redstone Campus)
Click:</a> University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Click:</a> Penn State (Old Botany,1st building on campus, but also Old Engineering and the Armory)</p>

<p>What makes Stanford such a glorious showcase of this style is that it is the largest collection of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, and no other school has done finer job at upkeeping it, you can see how Harvard's done :rolls eyes:</p>

<p>The list of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture extends to dozens of other school along the east coast, off the top of my head, that includes, Syracuse. Richardsonian Romanesque is not some California Spanish faux, it is actually a turn-of-th-century East Coast trend that is mainly used for catholic churches, it can be seen in almost every major city, and the best example is actually in Boston (Trinity Church).</p>

<p>Tell me how any of the above correlate to this:
