The College of the Holy Cross ranks No. 8 in the country on Best Choice Schools’ list of “The 50 Most Beautiful Urban College Campuses.”

According to Best Choice Schools the campus is “exceptionally beautiful” and the 174-acre campus is “a registered arboretum, boasting more than 6,000 trees, plants, and shrubs that add unique color and elegance to any part of campus.”

“Towering Fenwick Hall serves as the campus’ centerpiece,” the article boasts, “while the jewel of Holy Cross is undoubtedly St. Joseph Memorial Chapel. Constructed in 1922, the chapel features graceful Corinthian columns and a Renaissance Revival aesthetic.”
