I am a HUGE university nerd. There are few things I love more than a gorgeous university. When I visit a beautiful university, I summon my inner Hermione Granger and I try to imagine how incredible it would be to study there. I’ve had the chance to do my Master’s degree in Medieval Studies in La Sorbonne and l’Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris (after having studied in factory-looking universities) and believe me when I tell you these are stunning places, full of wooden panels, grand pianos and history! Therefore, one of my main goals when traveling through the United States was to visit as many beautiful American universities as possible. This is a list of 7 beautiful American Universities you need to check out to satisfy your inner Hermione Granger, from the oldest to the newest!
Columbia University – established in 1754
Upenn – University of Pennsylvania – founded in the mid-18th century
Georgetown University – established in the last decade of the 18th century
Berkeley – University of California Berkeley – Founded in 1868
UCLA – University of California Los Angeles – built on its modern location in the 1920s
Boy how was I wrong! UCLA is gorgeous and really embodies the balance between a neat-looking campus you can expect to be very functional, and beautiful buildings. I loved our time in Los Angeles and I’m glad we took a few hours to go and visit UCLA!
UCSC – University of California Santa Cruz – founded in 1965
