What do Princeton, Yale, Berry and Stanford have in common (besides being great schools, of course)? All were ranked among the top five most beautiful campuses in America by Architectural Digest. Berry came in at No. 3 on the list, trailing only Yale and Princeton.

“When it comes to a beautiful setting, Berry College can’t be beat,” wrote Stefanie Waldeck, noting the natural beauty of the 27,000-acre campus and the English Gothic architecture of the Ford Buildings.

Berry was the only school from Georgia to crack the top 50. View complete list.

College presidents, provosts and admissions deans from across the South are singing Berry’s praises for its strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and penchant for innovation.

Their feedback, as reported in U.S. News and World Report’s annual “best colleges” edition, landed Berry at No. 3 in the undergraduate teaching category among regional universities in the South. The college also ranked 11th among “Most Innovative Schools,” to go along with a “best-value” designation by publication editors.

“At Berry, you won’t just be another face among a sea of students,” said Provost Mary Boyd. “Berry’s culture of mentoring gives you one-on-one time with your professors who can become not only mentors, but friends in your journey to fulfilling your dreams.”
