Thanks AM. Agreed that CU is way up there. Rice is much better than Baylor IMO, though confused. Interesting on the two small private liberal arts colleges near the top of the list. Will have to give those a visit.

Heavy on the gothic revivals, which are beautiful. Dallas Hall still stands out above all of our “feaux”-Georgian Collegiate replicas. What a great building.
