The 50 Ugliest College Campuses

1. Ava Maria University

Location: Ava Maria, Fla.
Year Built: 2007 (Founded: 1998)
Key Architects: Cannon Design

This campus is the pièce de résistance of the Ugliest Campuses in America. It's comical how obtrusive this campus looks with European-flavored buildings surrounding a church (the building was originally conceived by town founder, Tom Monaghan of Dominos). What makes no sense, however, is the fact that Monaghan is one of the world's largest collectors of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. We wish that he took a page from Wright's book when designing the school.
