College Rankings by Campus Beauty

College rankings by campus beauty

It’s no surprise that the campus hosting the world’s largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture was also ranked as the most beautiful in the country by The Princeton Review. Florida Southern College’s Wright collection–known as “Child of the Sun”–was designed by the famous architect from 1941 to 1958. The Water Dome piece featured above is a 45-foot-high fountain partially completed in 1949, and restored to Wright’s original design in 2007.

On the flip side, we have Clarkson University in New York. Along with it’s unfortunate “Least Beautiful Campus” title, Clarkson U also claims The Princeton Review’s #1 rank for “This is a Library?” and #6 for “Least Happy Students”. Do campus aesthetics and library resources contribute to overall student happiness?

Each year The Princeton Review polls thousands of students at 376 of the best colleges and universities. As part of our Lifelong Learning series, we’ve taken some of the more interesting survey results and created a mini series of graphical highlights.

    The dirty snow and leafless trees in front of Clarkson University is a nice touch.
