The location is picturesque, but the campus does nothing for the scenery. With a slew of new buildings created in the '60s, the college has a landscape of industrial, boxy architecture and a landscape of cement and glass that weighs on the town's gorgeous landscape. Even the newer buildings have been designed to fit into the '60s style, which hasn't improved the architecture of the campus. It also doesn't help that Ithaca has Cornell to compete with, both academically and architecturally.
