Colleges with Neo-Gothic Buildings

<p>I don't know why but I have this strange attraction to Neo-Gothic style. That's important for me because whenever I'm in college and look at the buildings I'd be like, "I can't believe I'm here; : ]" or sth like that.</p>

<p>So I was wondering, what other colleges have Neo-Gothic buildings? Yale looks a lot like UChicago.</p>

<p>I agree. I never get bored of seeing the awesome buildings around campus.</p>

<p>Chicago was actually the first "American Gothic" campus. Its construction sparked the fashion that replicated the style elsewhere. Although Yale, for instance, is about 200 years older than Chicago, it didn't have Gothic-style buildings until the mid-1920s.</p>

<p>Anyway, colleges with a heavily neo-Gothic feel: Yale, Duke, Wellesley, Bryn Mawr. I'm sure there are others.</p>

<p>Oxford and Cambridge, as well... IIRC, Chicago's architecture is based upon those universities'.</p>

<p>While I think neo-Gothic campuses are to die for (figuratively), I have a particularly soft spot for neo-Gothic campuses in Chicago with jeering gargoyles and freezing weather.</p>

<p>^haha. Me too.</p>

<p>I absolutely love neo-gothic architecture. :)</p>

<p>Oh...and Vassar's pretty neo-gothic, isn't it?</p>

<p>Trinity College in Hartford</p>

<p>Vassar's architecture is odd. Maybe one or two buildings are neo-gothic, but it doesn't give the same Hogwarts oomph.</p>

<p>That's not to say it's not a beautiful campus.</p>

<p>^maybe it's that Hogwarts ambiance that gives me the chills whenever I look at neo-Gothic buildings.</p>

<p>^Yeah, I think so.</p>

<p>"Bryn Mawr" <--that college doesn't have enough vowels.</p>

<p>The architecture is one of the things that really stands out at UChicago. The reason it's so beautiful and perfect in my mind is the location.</p>

<p>Boston College has a pretty decent neo-gothic array. Check out Washington University in St. Louis, also.</p>

<p>Neo-gothic done with colored brick is not very gothic looking at all in my book. This drops a lot of schools.</p>

<p>This might sound weird, but Gothic architecture is really one of the only kinds I like during the winter. It somehow looks amazing even with tons of snow and muck everywhere. The newer buildings on campus that are mostly glass are kind of just a tease during the winter when you look at how much they contrast with the snow. But the Gothic buildings just go with it well.</p>

<p>The insides of the Gothic buildings leave something to be desired, but that's another story.</p>
