Travel + Leisure has named the University of Louisville campus the most beautiful in the state.

The publication cites the Belknap campus’ setting in historic Old Louisville, “stunning” Grawemeyer Hall, cast of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker and “plenty of foliage flanking the classic red brick structures.”

The 274-acre Belknap Campus, which includes seven of the 12 academic colleges, has more than 1,100 trees representing many species and even hosts a Tree Tour

In selecting each state’s school, Travel + Leisure considered setting, scenery, building designs and upkeep of the campus grounds. The publication also considered campus visits, in-depth virtual tours, first-person references and general research.

“Sure, picking the most beautiful college in every state of the union isn’t an exact science … But for travelers seeking an all-around positive experience —whether you’re on a college tour with the kids or looking for a place to wander on a balmy afternoon — these scholarly institutes all get top marks for good looks,” the publication states.
