Known for its stellar engineering program, Harvey Mudd leaves something to be desired in terms of its facilities. This California school has a beautiful location, but its flat architecture takes away from the natural scenery. Edward Durell Stone's buildings even have bumps (literally nicknamed warts) that make for a comical addition to his already unappealing buildings.
