America is haven for education and more importantly for 4 year college education and university education. There are nearly about three thousand colleges (4 year course duration) and universities. But are all these beautiful by their looks and ambience….not really. We can only name some of them keeping in view things such as architecture, location, historic structures and landscape. Here are those few beautiful colleges of America that are most picturesque and yes of course they do give you the best education.
Augustana College at Rock Island in Illinois:
This college was primarily established and founded as an institution to meet the educational requirements of Swedish immigrants. So going by this it is crystal clear that institutes’ Old Main, a central landmark has been enthused by one of the songs of Abba (though not a fact) and also a building located at the Sweden’s University in Uppsala (seems more alike). Having found its place in the National Register of Historic Places, it has been clearly influenced by European style that can be noticed from the dome and blemished glass windows.
Sather Tower or Berkeley’s Campanile placed at a striking 307 foot tall is the third tallest clock tower of the world. So this is quite good enough for it to boost its name as one of the beautiful schools in USA. And this 3rd tallest clock tower isn’t the only thing that it has for its beautiful looks it even has an awesome campus spread in 1,232-acre that even embraces Hearst Memorial Mining Building that has been structured in conventional European architecture style. John Galen Howard had been the architect for the building and has designed in 1907. The pool located in front of it enhances its beauty by reflecting the building. The other worth-seeing place is Berkeley’s Greek Theater, designed after Epidaurus’ antique Greek auditorium.
Berry College at Mt. Berry in Georgia:
Placed on an extensive 27,000 acres of Georgia woods, forest and mountains, Berry College offers horse, foot and bicycle trails, apart from offering archery deer hunt during the fall. Ford Auditorium is the show-stopper building of the campus, designed after English gothic structure. This magnificent building has a clock tower apart from reflecting pool.
Brown University at Providence in Rhode Island:

Known as replica for different architectural structures the campus has many antique buildings that correspond to apparently every kind of design styles which includes Beaux-Arts, Georgian, Venetian Gothic, Greek Revival and Ruskinian Gothic. And also on your way of exploration don’t miss out Robinson Hall, constructed with sandstone and red brick.
University of Chicago at Chicago in Illinois:
Placed on south side of Chicago, this urban oasis full of ivy flowers is a botanical garden. Having the buildings in gargoyles and Gothic styles this school is a treat to walk. Rockefeller Memorial Chapel with gyour must-hit; not only is it the university’s tallest building, but it features stained glass windows and a tower with 72 bells.
