While Kenyon officials take a dim view of college rankings, who can resist a good beauty pageant? Forbes has named Kenyon one of the world's most beautiful college campuses
. Forbes compiled its list of thirteen colleges and universities using a panel of architects and campus designers. Mike Evans, a principal at the Norfolk, Virginia, design firm Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas Company, told Forbes that a beautiful campus must have a "signature campus space as a carrier of the campus brand." He went on to praise Middle Path's role as the central artery of our hilltop campus. Other schools on the list included Princeton and Oxford universities.
