College Rank Names The 50 Most Beautiful Campus Quads

BEXLEY, OH – College Rank has released a list of the 50 Most Beautiful College Campus Quads. College quads serve as communal spaces where students, faculty and visitors study, gather and enjoy a park-like setting. Colleges and universities around the country put their quads front and center on marketing and promotion materials, and for good reason; they are often the most beautiful area of a campus.

Sara Moore, the article’s author, had this to say regarding the ranking: “We took an in-depth look at hundreds of campuses across the country and over many hours cut our list down to 50 very deserving schools. We considered factors such as size, campus programming and events, weather, history, and above all else, aesthetics while compiling this list. Students at all of these schools would be well served to spend as much time as possible on their campus quad.”
