Most Beautiful Campuses in Country
UC in at #5 by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

A decades-long renewal topping $1 billion is paying dividends for Cincy, which has cultivated a strikingly modern look—and proven that “it doesn’t need ivy-covered brick walls” to be beautiful, as UC Magazine put it.

Notable architects Michael Graves, Charles Gwathmey, Frank Gehry, and Peter Eisenman have each made their mark on the campus, whose Main Street leads to the prow-shaped Steger Student Life Center and the Tangeman University Center, which, in 2005, dramatically repositioned the original clock tower atop a skylight in a 90-foot atrium.

While I agree, this is from 2016.

Yes I poste then but did again when I got a new email on same. Nice to remind us. A selling point for any conference expansion along with updated arena, stadium, major research, big endowment, etc.

Totally agree. We'll take all of the positive press we get.

Good thing they didn't do this survey in the mid 80's.

I don't think they'd have been too impressed by the big hole in front of the field house, walking past the lovely physical plant and feeling some sort of mystery substance dropping on you or taking in a baseball game on portable aluminum bleachers that were just thrown in there at cockeyed angles.

Thanks for this - good to know. In other news, did anyone see that Sander Hall came down? It's about time. Some video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q08y6cFsTw

It only cost a billion to redo the campus. I wish UC could buy the rest of Burnet Woods. Today, Burnet is about 90 acres, but it was 170 acres when first established in the 1870s by two wealthy landowners, William Groesbeck and Robert Burnet, and leased to the city as parkland. Cincinnati bought a lot of it, but so did the University of Cincinnati, which develop it into its college campus.

Put in a 9 hole golf course, etc.

Me too, but Cincinnati people are old Germans with long memories. Someone said way back (when well to do people lived around the woods) that no more should be sold to the University, so that's how it must always be.

Many of those old Germans won't admit that UC is a great asset to Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

Put the biergarten next to the existing band stand. Love your thinking!
