University of CincinnatiArchitects and designers were recently asked to judge the World's Most Beautiful Campuses by Forbes Magazine.  Powerful natural landscapes played a part in establishing the character of some schools.  The University to Oxford was described as an architectural wonderland.  For large Universities, a clear diagram of organization helped them achieve recognition.

Other schools on the list were Kenyon College, Oxford University, Princeton University, Scripps College, Stanford University, Trinity College, Tsinghua University, University of Bologna, Yale University, Wellesley College, University of Virginia and University of California, Santa Cruz.
