College campuses so nice, we got named twice. We’ve always thought Belmont + Vanderbilt were easy on the eyes.

Now, the two universities are getting national recognition for it, holding Architectural Digest’s No. 11 and No. 17 spots on the “53 Prettiest College Campuses in America” list.

Belmont is specifically noted for its “pristinely-kept lawn” on one half of campus and students playing music in its gazebos on the other. Alternatively, AD harps on Vanderbilt’s ~200 species of trees and shrubs + gives a special shout out to Kirkland Hall.
