Forbes: America's Most Beautiful College Campuses

6 of 12

University of Washington, Seattle, Washington

Snow-capped mountain views in an urban setting is already a sweet deal. And in Seattle, the University of Washington offers this, and more. But what's really beautiful about “U Dub”, as its called by its student body, is how respectfully it is integrated into the city at large. Far from divorced from life beyond its borders, campus outreach is huge. In spite of its high academic reputation, self-importance is considered the opposite of cool. Pretty as it is what makes it beautiful is its humility.
