UMd. dubbed one of the "ugliest" college campuses

If you attended the University of Maryland at College Park, as I did, you might be used to defending your alma mater to outsiders after gameday riots or the like.

But this is a new one to me: the blog Campus Squeeze has listed UMd. as No. 20 on the Top 20 Ugliest Colleges in the USA (hey, at least we're better than Rutgers, listed as No. 19).

Drew University in New Jersey also made the list at No. 11, NC State is No. 7 and the No. 1 "most ugly" college: Drexel University in Philadelphia.

I always thought Maryland's campus - while not in the best of neighborhoods - was beautiful. Anyone feel its position on this list is justified?

Which Maryland campuses are the nicest? The least attractive?

University of Maryland College Park Campus is beautiful and very diverse and it's a global mecca! Also the campus is surrounded by the lovely communities of College Park, Takoma Park, and Greenbelt with Washington, DC. nearby.

I think UMD gets a bad wrap because the surrounding College Park neighborhood is nothing special. They've been trying to revitalize that Rt. 1 corridor for years, with only mixed results. But the campus itself is great...not sure what these bloggers are looking at.

UM at College Park is beautiful. They don't know what they're talking about. Obviously, they never had the opportunity to kiss Testudo either!

Hopkins has a lovely campus, from the buildings to the landscaping.

I really like the campus...I suppose some of the building are aging slightly, but it still looks VERY nice overall, one of the best I've seen. Definitely not in "top ugliest". I also suppose that if you take into account the surrounding area, CP isn't great overall, and Route 1 needs major improvements (which will hopefully come with the East Campus development). Still, I'll take it all given the proximity to D.C, that's a huge plus!
