The most recent edition of Delta Airlines' Sky Magazine placed UC among                                                          the world's top 10 "most inspiring University of Cincinnaticampuses." Sharing the honors with Cincinnati are such campuses as the Thomas Jefferson-designed University of Virginia, Beijing's Tsinghua University sitting among the former Qing dynasty gardens, Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., and the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

The widely read travel, lifestyle and business magazine based its selection on stunning physical settings and overall design or architecture. UC made the list largely thanks to its collection of masterful buildings by some of the world's best designers and architects. Sky joins Forbes magazine in placing UC on a short list of the world's most beautiful universities.
