SUNY Albany Ranked #12 Ugliest Campus
I never knew they had a list for this but apparently, they do just like they have a list for everything else. In case you're confused about the list, its the ugliest college campuses in America, and "they" is the complex magazine, and this is what they had to say about SUNY Albany:
SUNY Albany has taken a lot of flack for its cold, impersonal campus. Designed by renowned campus architect veteran Edward Durell Stone, the campus falls short...but it all can't be blamed on Stone. The SUNY system doesn't have a great reputation for glorious buildings. Budget constraints truncated Stone's idyllic vision of the space, complete with artfully lit archways and lush green surroundings. Unfortunately, due to this, we'll never know just how beautiful the central New York campus could have been.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and do maybe SUNY Albany doesn't really do it for you. The question is, what college campuses really do? Sure some of them are better than others, but at the end of day, a lot of campuses look pretty similar.
