Students Playing Frisbee at Ford
IN THE SHADOW OF AN ICON: The Ford Buildings have been a center of student life on the Berry campus since their construction in the 1920s. The English Gothic design of these gifts from Henry and Clara Ford have helped Berry earn wide acclaim as one of the most beautiful college campuses in America. Photo by student Alex Killingsworth.

The Ford Buildings have been drawing audible gasps from prospective students and other campus visitors since the days of Martha Berry herself, so it should come as no surprise that these breathtaking structures turned up on USA Today’s list of America’s “51 most amazing university and college buildings.” The list features one campus building from all 50 states (as well as the District of Columbia), and wouldn’t you know it, the Ford Buildings were chosen to represent Georgia.

Ford BuildingsBest College Reviews and Thrilllist.com have joined the growing number of publications and websites that have recognized Berry’s rightful place among the nation’s most beautiful college campuses. Best College Reviews ranked Berry ninth (we are still holding out for No. 1) on a diverse list of 100 institutions stretching from the Eastern Seaboard all the way to Hawaii. Joining Berry in the top 10 were the University of Virginia, Bryn Mawr College, the University of Chicago, Princeton University, Notre Dame, Sewanee: The University of the South, Mount Holyoke College, the University of Hawaii at Mānoa and Amherst College. Interestingly, only six of those schools (Berry among them) made Thrilllist’s alphabetical listing of the 25 Most Beautiful College Campuses in America, proving once again that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everybody seems to love Berry!
