We visited with our son on college scouting trip and the campus and buildings were beautiful. The architecture was the nicest of the 6 colleges we saw on the trip. The libraries were impressive. The bookstore was efficient.

Highly recommend Stocking Hall and the dairy bar. Best ice cream EVER. They also offer self guided tours with your smart phone. Expansive campus with wildly commendable & divergent architecture.
