We aren't on there, but the University of Washington is amazing. Sits on the edge of Lake Washington with the stunning mount rainier and cascade mountains looming in the distance out my window. Cherry trees blooming in the quad in spring, surronded by native trees and plants everywhere else. impressive drumheller fountain showering water surronded by a well-kept garden. Everywhere unique and stunning brick buildings. mmmm I love it here.

Totally agree about the University of Washington. The landscape in the area is just beautiful and the architecture is amazing.

I just visited Loyola Marymount University and it is truly a beautiful campus. The University Hall and the Hannon Library are two amazing buildings.

Rollins College in Winter Park, FL should have made the list. It's like a country club, and much more beautiful than others that did make the list. It's not only beautiful, but ranked the #1 University in the SOuth by U.S> News and World Report for the 6th straight year. It scored 100/100.
It's a GREAT place!
