Perfect buildings lining lush lawns serve as backdrop in (almost) every film that celebrates the American college experience. Idyllic quads are, for most, the collegiate dream. We all, regardless of our respective alma mater, have a vision what a university campus should look like.
Of course, not all colleges and universities manage reflect this essential conception. Ugly campuses come in all different incarnations. Some suffer the fate of poor planning. Others, sadly, fail thanks to an unpleasant setting. Here we pinpoint the former, shedding light on places where the buildings could be better and the mood lightened if only a touch more thought had found way to the construction of academic space.
Did your school make the list? We sure hope not.
