A list of the best-looking campuses normally presents a heavy bias towards California schools where sunshine and the pressure of bikini season are always present. But today, we're not talking about bros and babes: College campuses are almost always under construction, and constantly in competition with each other for the newest and hottest architecture to lure in the tuition dollars.
A gigantic endowment always helps, but this list is far from a roundup of the usual suspects. Oceanside locations and Ivy League history have nothing on these awe-inspiring campuses, some unknown, others just unexpected. Imagine these dramatic structures paired with sharp maxi skirts from Jil Sander, or Lindsey Thornburg cloaks next to gothic towers...we wish Inez, Vinoodh, Terry and co. would haul their models to some of these spots once in a while (and we doubt the students would complain!).
