“Travel + Leisure” has a piece out entitled “The Most Beautiful College in Every State” that we figured we’d share with the readers of our college admissions blog. So which university takes the cake in each of the fifty nifty United States from thirteen original colonies? Shout ’em, scout ’em, tell all about ’em. One by one ’till we’ve given a [beautiful college] to every state in the U.S.A. Ok, sorry, we had some Ray Charles on our minds.
We’re not going to list all fifty of these schools but we’ll cherrypick the highly selective ones. Yale University takes the cake in Connecticut. University of Chicago wins the Illinois sweepstakes. Tulane University wins Louisiana. The United States Naval Academy wins Maryland. Washington University in St. Louis wins Missouri. Dartmouth College takes New Hampshire. Princeton University wins New Jersey. Colgate University wins New York. Wake Forest University takes the cake in North Carolina. University of Pennsylvania wins Pennsylvania. University of Virginia takes Virginia. In Vermont, it’s Middlebury College. And in Tennessee, it’s Vanderbilt University. Oh, and let’s not forget the District of Columbia, home of Georgetown University, certainly one of the world’s most beautiful universities.
And now we await the folks who write in with Comments that read something like, “But Indiana University in Indiana is highly selective.” Sorry, not compared to Princeton, Annapolis, or Middlebury. We had to draw the line somewhere but you’re welcome to read the full piece on America’s most beautiful colleges up on “Travel + Leisure.”
