Newsweek says Connecticut College is a 10

08/13/2012

Connecticut College is No. 10 on a new Newsweek listing of the Top 25 Most Beautiful Schools.

"Like most rankings it's completely unscientific-it even attempts to factor in the weather and the attractiveness of our students. But it does point out some of the benefits of the College to people who may be unfamiliar with us. And the beauty of our arboretum campus in coastal Connecticut can't be denied," said President Leo I. Higdon Jr.

The list was compiled by Newsweek, in partnership with College Prowler, one of a number of Web and print companies that provide reviews and information to help prospective students choose a college.

Newsweek's list of Most Beautiful Schools takes into account not only the beauty of the campus itself, but considers ratings provided by College Prowler on the attractiveness of the student body, campus and architectural aesthetics and the average comfort index, including humidity and afternoon temperature on campus.

To see what No. 10 looks like, take a photo tour or an aerial tour.
