Forbes: America's Most Beautiful College Campuses

7 of 12

Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania

Hardly content to let its Scott Arboretum, gracious historic architecture, meticulously tended grounds and emphasis on social responsibility stand for “beauty”, Swarthmore College continues to put its Quaker-inspired ethics into practice by undoing elements of history that aren't contributing to the betterment of humankind. A recent example? Three of its rooftops (that's over 14,300 square feet) have been converted to green roofs and a fourth, destined for the Lang Performing Arts Center, is on the drawing board.
