One of the most beautiful campuses in the US. The buildings in the core of an unusual stone in a convincing neo-Gothic style. All are situated amidst trees and rolling green hills. Walking is a challenge due to the hills and parking is not easy.

I'm sure the campus must be beautiful all year round, but driving through on a drizzly fall day was incredibly picturesque. The architecture is stunning, and the trees simply amazing.

This campus is fun interesting and nice to walk around. You can take a shuttle from the hotel and see it. It has many old buildings and the archetecture is beautiful! The people are friendly.
