Forbes magazine lists the Air Force Academy as one of the most beautiful in the world. Kevin Lippert, publisher of the Princeton Architectural Press, which publishes the prestigious Campus Guide series, put the Academy, at number 8.
Lippert called the campus, which was built in the 1950s, "a tour de force of modern architecture." The Colorado Rockies as a backdrop doesn't hurt.
Tiny Kenyon College, a liberal arts school in Ohio, ranked number one. Oxford, Princeton, Scripps, and Stanford round out the top five.
