As Gomer Pyle use to say, surprise surprise surprise, you might have thought that the University of Michigan, Michigan Tech in the U.P. or Michigan State would have been named the ‘Most Beautiful College’ in Michigan.  If so you all would have been wrong, at least from the perspective of Travel Leisure magazine, a travel magazine based in New York City.

The magazine recently named Kalamazoo College as the most beautiful college in Michigan.

In fact they described Kalamazoo College in the following way:

Leafy, suburban Kalamazoo College is probably best described as pleasant. Understated but attractive red-brick buildings make up the majority of campus structures: Hodge House, the president’s residence, is a good example.

In fact this was not the first time it was named the most beautiful college, it also attained the reward in 2017.

Kalamazoo College was founded in 1833, Kalamazoo College counts itself among the 100 oldest colleges and universities in the United States. The private college reports enrollment of 1,467 students from 39 states and 28 different countries, and 100 full-time faculty.

Congrats Kalamazoo College and good luck next year.
