The University of Mississippi -- Oxford, Mississippi
Ole Miss began in 1848 with one building, the Lyceum. Its Greek Revival architecture (and oldest college bell in America) landed it on the National Register of Historic Places and influenced nearly every other building that followed. From Ventress to the Cochran Center, the campus is dominated by clean lines, brown brick, and gleaming white plaster accents.
If classic architecture’s not your thing (and that's cool, nobody's judging), the lush foliage of The Grove provides a welcome contrast. The beating heart of the entire campus, it's home to some epic tailgating on Saturdays in the fall.
