If we're not limiting this to T1 (and I'm not so eat me), I present to you the Iconic spires of Villanova:


And some more stuff.

Miami

I won't deny that all those mentioned thus far have been good choices, and I'm not saying this is near the best either.  But it has some excellent landscaping and is in Coral Gables, which is a suburb in a rainforest.  Unfortunately, the only good picture I found shows no fichus trees, just some palms.

Just to throw it out, though.  I think Yale wins.

Agreed. This December is certainly more the exception than the rule. There's a reason why a school with such a beautiful campus as Cornell isn't in the top 10 for UG...

The cold/snow at Cornell is definitely overrated. If you are coming from a warm climate, it will be a shock, for sure, but it is no colder than Ann Arbor. Chicago, in my opinion, is colder than both when you factor in the wind. Ithaca gets more snow later in the winter (2 of the 4 years I spent there, it did not snow until Jan), but if you are going to have a winter, why not have snow? Makes the place look nicer, which is the subject of this thread.

The prettiest campuses I've visited:

Richmond, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Notre Dame, Michigan, and Penn. I'd say it's a tie between Vanderbilt and Notre Dame for prettiness.

Richmond is insane, I've seen ND and Mich too and can vouch for those.  This country sure has a lot of good looking college campuses.

ND doesn't do much for me. I went to IU and the campus was much, much nicer.I didn't go in the law building, but the ND law building leaves a lot to be desired.

Ive not been to ND, but I agree that IU is a good looking campus and that was a factor in making it my first choice. The law building is old, but clean and very nice. Also, it is being renovated and has a newer extension across the street. The law library is beautiful and the nicest one i have visited.

Girls? I saw a decent amount of hot girls walking around bloomington.

nova's campus is nice. too bad you cant take law classes in Mendel hall. The law building though, in the words of the Dean is: "one of the smallest and worst buildings in American legal education."

in terms of non T-14's maryland looks pretty cool. http://www.rcgarc.com/main_projects.html
