    The campus, or the "scenery?"

    Cliffs of Malibu...simply stunning. Really deserves its own category.

    I haven’t been to many, although we’ve made it a point on our last two vacations to walk through campuses and get a T-shirt for my son. He likes the shirt but I like to expose him to different places and he likes to see them (so do I). That said:

    -University of Kentucky (I graduated from UK but it’s a completely different place now)

    -Centre College
    -St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota (beautiful)
    -Colorado College

    Of note, while I haven't been there, I hear that Rollins College is gorgeous. Same with Sewanee, both in the fact that I haven't been there, and that I hear it is beautiful.

    Did not see the college, but Duluth, Mn is one beautiful town. They call it Little San Francisco for a reason. Ran Grandma's Marathon in 2001, it was one of the most enjoyable and scenic I ever ran. Betty's Pies are almost worth the trip by themselves.

    Duluth is a hidden treasure. One of the cooler cities I have ever been to.

    Yes! We loved it. My wife wanted to move there, but I had to tell her that December is much different than June!

    Never been to either St. Scholastica or UMD, but the first time I visited Duluth, I was able to look out onto Lake Superior in late October. There's no place in America like it. I still can't believe ships and boats go out there on purpose. I agree though, Duluth is great. Was there two more times as I got older. Really want to go back.

    I have been to St. Olaf College though. Much further South and inland. Nice campus and very pleasant place in mid-September. Very nearly went to school up there.
