Ugliest University Campuses

, ,

Westchester County Headquarters of the latest Bond villain or SUNY Purchase?

The Daily Caller picks (and mocks) the ugliest college campuses in America.

Hint: If you care about architectural beauty, do not attend any engineering schools built after WWII.

Yale has a lot of spectacularly beautiful buildings: the James Gamble Rogers colleges, Sterling Memorial Library, the Beinecke Rare Book Library (viewed from the inside), but Yale could compete in the ugliness stakes if it entered Morse and Stiles, the last built modern colleges; certain dormitories (Farnum, Lawrence, Durfee) on the Old Campus, which really resemble Victorian orphanages; and the Yale School of Architecture, Yale’s renownedly unhappy example of the school of Brutalism.

Personally, I would have included parts of Stanford in the Daily Caller essay.
