Sheknows.com has named the University of Virginia as "One Of The Most Beautiful Colleges In The US".  The article says of UVA:

"The gorgeous campus of the University of Virginia, founded by Thomas Jefferson, is not just one of the prettiest college campuses in the country, but is the only university in the U.S. to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site! The grand architecture, fields of green and pockets of large, lush trees make this university a gorgeous place to be (especially in the fall and spring). A favorite spot for the students, faculty and photographers is the Rotunda, which towers over the landscape with Neoclassical pillars and a large dome. The Rotunda was modeled after the Pantheon in Rome and many of the other buildings have a very similar look and feel."
