    While I have never visited any of the schools listed with the most beautiful campuses, it's a shame that the University of Virginia didn't make it. A true beauty of a campus.

    The entire UVa campus (not just the rotunda and the lawn) might be No. 4 in the state of Virginia. W&M, Sweet Briar and Richmond are far prettier than UVa.

    Three SUNYs in the bottom 20 of ugly campuses. The five-year plan of university design was a tremendous success, commrade!

    Macalester College is way too low on the liberal list. It makes Berkeley look like BYU.

    Drexel at no. 2 among ugliest campuses sounds about right.

    Stony Brook SHOULD be a gorgeous campus, what with being in the middle of nowhere in a bucolic part of Long Island. Yet somehow they've turned it into the only eyesore in the area. Go to Port Jeff and it's pretty. go to any of the smaller towns along the water and it's pretty. But Stony Brook is one big construction zone, and even the completed buildings have a faceless, forgettable aura to them.

    I've been to TCNJ in beautiful Ewing, N.J. It's actually a pretty campus. My friend whom I visited said it was modeled after UGA's campus in Athens, which is where I went. Or at least part of it was. I found that interesting. In an area with gorgeous old colleges, they had to go South to find a design to follow? Not that I'm complaining, I personally think UGA (at least North Campus) is spectacular.

    Ole Miss' newspaper at number 9?? Are you kidding me? College newspapers are in serious trouble if that's the case.

    I think Wisconsin's paper made the list on the strength of its Sudoku and Shoutouts.

    Never been to Sweet Briar, but I'll take Uva over the other two and I've spent a fair amount of time at all three

    I was thinking the same thing, and I wrote for the DM for two years.

    From just a knowledge of the Big Ten, they're all fucked up.

    Michigan and Minnesota's student papers are both more popular than Wisconsin's.

    And I'd agree with A_QB about Macalester, except I know nothing about the schools ahead of it. Seriously.
