The WRAL Morning News team got into an interesting debate this morning on the most beautiful college campuses in America. Kelcey Carlson’s alma mater was ranked this year as the 17th most beautiful campus. The buildings at Indiana University were constructed out of native limestone. Kelcey pointed out the same material that makes IU so beautiful is also part of the charm and majesty of the Biltmore House in Asheville.
Elizabeth Gardner’s alma mater made the top 50 list of most beautiful college campuses. Colorado in Boulder not only has impressive architecture but is situated in a glorious mountain setting. My alma mater, UNC-Chapel Hill, scored very well at 27th thanks to its gorgeous campus and historic canopy of trees. Our executive producer Scott Nagel attended Furman University which came in at number 12 on the list.
Some of my favorites include Duke University with its gothic architecture, Dartmouth College, William & Mary and the College of Charleston. Also, Elon, which ranked as the most beautiful campus is America, is certainly deserving of accolades. These rankings come from www.thebestcolleges.org if you would like to check out the complete list.
In your opinion, what is the most beautiful college campus in America? I would love to hear your thoughts.
