You cant be having a quiz on something subjective, no matter who's opinion it is. Back to facts, yeh?
Mar 13th, 2010 at 13:16 GMT
at least the creator used a decent source's opinion, in this case Forbes. No different than popular "Time's 100 most influential people" games, etc.

I've been to Cincinnati and it pales in comparison to other schools even just in the Midwest.
Mar 13th, 2010 at 16:19 GMT
I have only been to two of these (Wellesley and UVA) and I agree they are both great campuses. When I saw Massachusetts I was really hoping it wasn't Harvard. I am surprised the Naval Academy was not on here, however, wonderful place.
Mar 13th, 2010 at 16:47 GMT
mcgill. i guess not then.
Mar 13th, 2010 at 17:18 GMT
I think this would have been a fun picture quiz
Mar 13th, 2010 at 18:13 GMT
I have also been to Cinci... it is really nothing special
Mar 13th, 2010 at 18:56 GMT
wow this is a hilarious list. Cincy takes the cake. Of the schools I've seen I think there is an easy top 5. Princeton Stanford Pepperdine Notre Dame Harvard Virginia and UNC are very nice as well. Trinity is eh

I can see why you wouldnt like Cincinnati if you like traditional architecture, but the fact is that Cincinnati has the best modern architecture of any campus. There are buildings by Frank Gehry, Peter Eisenman, IM Pei, Thom Mayne, and Micheal Graves, just to name a few. Its quite a collection.
Mar 13th, 2010 at 19:52 GMT
I can't believe Pepperdine isn't on here. That place is unbelievable.
Mar 13th, 2010 at 19:56 GMT
Haha, Oxford, prettier than Cambridge... beleive me, if it wasn't for fact Cambridge is full of boring twats, I wouldn't be in Oxford... Even Durham's nicer!
Mar 14th, 2010 at 00:09 GMT
i agree about pepperdine, although i havent been there i know that any coastal California university has amazing natural beauty. maybe they were only being judged on man-made things, just to be fair
Mar 14th, 2010 at 01:16 GMT
On a non-school-spirit note, I was surprised not to see Princeton. It's the most gorgeous campus I've seen in the United States.
Mar 14th, 2010 at 01:17 GMT
...wait, ignore that, I was thinking of a different list, not this quiz
Mar 15th, 2010 at 19:08 GMT
The Air Force Academy has a very beautiful LOCATION, but the CAMPUS is a god-awful mess of glass boxes that ranks near the *bottom* of best looking colleges in the state of Colorado, let alone the world. For an actually beautiful campus in that part of the world, check out the University of Colorado in Boulder. Or if you want to see a pretty service academy, go to Navy in Annapolis, MD.

Dumb, too subjective.
Mar 16th, 2010 at 20:32 GMT
Of course almost all of them are in America. Rated 1 point.
Mar 17th, 2010 at 00:32 GMT
The evidence against Forbes lists just keeps piling on...
Mar 17th, 2010 at 22:22 GMT
I live in MA and I should have thought of Wellesley. My first guess for the Virginia school was also William and Mary, and I agree that Pepperdine should have made the list.
Mar 18th, 2010 at 15:04 GMT
Oxford isn't one campus. Oxford Uni has lovely sites and pig ugly ones. Trinity is also only good in parts. And clearly the judges had never been to Royal Holloway College. Your source is somewhat suspect sir!
Mar 19th, 2010 at 17:59 GMT
LAME AND COMPLETLY SUBJECTIVE!
Jun 8th, 2010 at 10:38 GMT
Source is severely subjective but I have no problem with that as much as I do with their anglo-american centric view and within that view their appaling lack of taste. Cornell, Cambridge, Dartmouth, Durham(the english one) St Andrew's - where be they? ...
Sep 1st, 2010 at 06:58 GMT
Pointing out that such a list is subjective is spectacularly brilliant. All this time I was thinking it was 100% objective and based on the most rigorous standards of scientific verification. Alas, I...

I love how Forbes made sure to add in one non-Anglo university just to remain credible. They probably spent 2 hours looking this up
