PULLMAN, Wash.--A recent addition of new buildings was not enough to spruce up the Washington State University campus in Pullman. An online author for Complex.com named the Pullman campus as one of the 50 ugliest in the U.S.
Pullman ranked 23rd on the list and was the only Washington school to be ranked for its unattractive campus.
“Although WSU has beautiful scenery, the campus feels as uninviting as a medical complex. The school has tried to alleviate this with some new construction, but some of their attempts, like the residence halls (which are reminiscent of a motel), have fallen short of expectations,” wrote Kathryn Henderson.
Here is Henderson’s list of the top ten ugliest college campuses:
1. Ava Maria University
2. City College of New York
3. Rochester Institute of Technology
4. SUNY Purchase
5. SUNY Buffalo, North Campus
6. Drexel University
7. SUNY Stony Brook
8. Georgia State University
9. Community College of Rhode Island - Knight Campus
10. Rowan University
Henderson listed that she took into account location, planning, decentralized campuses, and inappropriately mixed styles of architecture.
