Spring is right around the corner, and soon high school seniors will be constantly (and voluntarily) checking the mail for college acceptance letters. Choosing a college is a decision that involves many considerations, but the campus itself is definitely one of them.

From the beautiful beachside campus of Pepperdine University overlooking the Pacific Ocean, to the gorgeous Collegiate Gothic architecture of Duke University and the University of Chicago, to the traditional yet stunning Ivy League campuses of Harvard, Yale and Columbia, America is full of campuses that please the eye.
